The Parish Church of St George the Martyr, Waterlooville

Waterlooville Music Festival is over for another year … what was the highlight for you?

maybe it was the spectacle of the massive Royal Marines Association Concert Band with a thrilling performance enhanced by the intimately small but acoustically perfect venue of St George’s Church

maybe it was the 100 strong choir AChoired Taste with a wonderful programme of popular melodies, and the contrast from the supporting Kopanang with their delightful South African traditional songs and spirituals

maybe it was the blistering, footstomping music of Revel Weird and Wild contrasted with the harmonies of Portsmouth Shantymen and the sheer atmosphere of fun at the Folk and Ale Night

maybe it was the absolutely amazing Sixties Night, what a party that was, a packed dance floor, the audience chanting at the band Out of the Shadows desperate for a final encore, which they gave, and all then heading for home but wishing such a fun evening could have continued longer into the night (the Festival Committee will be looking into that for next time!)

maybe it was Last Night of the Proms, everything about the evening brilliant as ever, but especially the final encore with an absolutely incredible and exhausting performance of Riverdance.

Or did you miss out on it all? Well, if you did, maybe it would be worth thinking about coming to Waterlooville Music Festival next year, and find out for yourself all that you are missing.

5 concerts were completely sold out, 4 had long waiting lists, and Last Night of the Proms sold out by mid-April. So many people were unable to get tickets and were disappointed. Please do not let that happen to you next year! Buy your tickets in good time!
