Following the town council’s successful Big Jubilee Lunch in June, the season continued with the two-day CrowFest entertainment and music event, incorporating the annual summer fair, and using funds which had been earmarked for cancelled events.
The festival at Goldsmiths Recreation Ground on the weekend of July 16-17 drew hundreds of people over two days, eager to try the inflatable obstacle course and enjoy the live acts.
Saturday’s headliners were Two Weeks in Nashville, supported by My Everest, the Paul Dunton Orchestra, Flash Hearth & Sequoia Coyote from The Orange Circus, Chris Harper, Abi Orfila, Mollie Parker and Elliott Graham.
Sunday’s headliner was the Mike Wilton Band, along with Suncharmer, Super Zero, Half Moon Panic, Thieves of Time, Steve Hewitt, the Good Ship Band, Seb Turner and Ash Dodd.
The free event went on until 9pm each day, with music acts on the main stage, local businesses selling from stalls on the running track, and other performers in the arena.
Green Transition Crowborough was at the heart of the fair, offering advice on saving money and living more sustainably.
