Firs Hill Fury make the main stage
Abbeyfield Park was filled with the sound of drums on the 20th June as Firs Hill Fury Drummers wowed a small crowd with their impressive rhythms.
The young drummers were auditioning to perform at the festival. The band have been warming up with regular practice sessions at Firs Hill School, this paid off as festival organisers gave them the thumbs up for a place on the main stage.
Festival build up
Preparations for the festival began this week as the park was given a spruce up before the stage arrives. Watch this space for photo updates of its progress.
