Is this a new event? I don't remember hearing about it in previous years. Looks great!

This is one of the things I miss about London. I remember many pleasant, blurry, days spent there back when it was the Fordham Festival in the 1990s. I think I remember Skunk Anansie playing there, although it is entirely possible that I hallucinated that.
