Lingfest 2017

starts in

Lingfest 2017 Saturday 15th July

A very special event for local residents to enjoy.

Inspired by a call to bring back community-wide gatherings in Lingfield, a group of residents, supported by Lingfield Parish Council,
are planning Lingfest – a party in the park.
Lingfest will offer a day of family fun with six local bands due to perform at the event in Jenners Field.
There will be stalls selling food and drink, and lots of entertainment for children.
Lingfest will take place from 2pm onwards until 10pm at Jenners Field, which will be transformed by a temporary stage surrounded by stalls.
All ages will be welcome at the event, which promises to be the summer highlight in the village.
Detailed planning is currently underway. Keep checking back here for more information about the event as it’s released.

Six great bands

Plus a lot more!

John Doe
Into The Blue are a classic party, pop, rock and soul band, playing a range of music to suit all ages and tastes. This five-piece band of professional musicians has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the entertainment industry, performing slick, feel-good shows that delight.
Josh Thompson
Noble Jacks are a rip-roaring Alt-Folk band with roof-raising energy. The band's upbeat folky foot stompin' rhythms and engaging lyricism showcase fiddle, blues harmonica, and big anthem toplines. Their debut album 'What the Hammer' is out now.
Mary Jane

The United Stöats Of America

The United Stoats of America on Facebook
The United Stöats of America take the essence of bluegrass, rockabilly and skiffle, and add some rock solid drumming and a gallon of cider. They transform other people's songs – which they say are really only "rollicking hillbilly tunes ruined by being played with the wrong instruments" – into something totally unique.
John Doe
The Strums play masterful semi-acoustic versions of many of your favourite songs, from Crosby Stills and Nash to Jessie J! The four band members are quality musicians playing quality music, showcasing guitar mastery and flawless harmonies honed from years of experience playing professionally within the music business.
John Doe

Sloe Gin

From Lingfield
Lingfield-based Sloe Gin has generated an enthusiastic local following, performing at pubs, festivals and folk clubs in Surrey, Sussex and Kent. Playing tunes and songs from the English and Irish traditions, their accomplished musicianship and strong vocals deliver a dynamic and lively sound.
John Doe
The Swinghearts are a close-harmony swing trio, inspired by the music, look and feel of vintage girl groups from the 1940s and 50s. Performing the most popular songs from the period, whatever the occasion they're guaranteed to 'Bring the Swing'!
