The run up to Brentford Festival starts early
IT IS OFFICIAL The Brentford Festival 2018 planning has launched this week. We are a few weeks later than normal starting as the festival team bring me (and the other old schoolers) into the modern world. The team have subtly tried to get me to change the way we do things surrounding the festival over the past couple of years but I have quietly declined. My main reason for resistance was that what was being suggested looked like another task for me and with my many other projects I could not see how I would physically be able to find the time.
The enjoyable part of the process was looking back at photographs taken from as early as the first Brentford Festival in 2005 and this has prompted us to launch an archives page. I was amazed to see that the two guys whom I have noticed dancing in front of the music stage at the last three events have actually been supporting us from as early as 2009. So if you have any photographs of past Brentford Festival Events that you would like to share, please upload them via the website.
