Around the same time, a band with a very different sound, 10cc were chart regulars and, now regulars on the nostalgia circuit, they were headlining Weyfest for the second time in three years. Great line-up including big headliners, local acts and up and comers. The Rural Life Centre is a working museum, littered with artefacts of past country life and craft displays throughout the venue. Utterly, utterly dreadful stuff. Bruce Watson, who I remember being rather withdrawn figure on stage, seemed rejuvenated and even did the majority of between song intros as well as some great guitar interplay with son Jamie. On 'The Smile Has Left Your Eyes', he began almost acapella with only Geoff Downes' keyboards for company before the band kicked in, and such was the heart and soul John poured in that he adopted the classic 'AOR pose' of head tilted back and fists clenched in front of his chest. Advertorial Godstone The family-friendly festival held every day throughout the school holidays Paddington Bear, Mr Bump and Mr Bungle will all be making an appearance at Godstone Farm this summer. Who could ask for more? To make things worse, once the guitarist had told us the name of the song and a little back story, the bassist decided to repeat the information. Had I been blindfolded I wouldn't have been able to tell them apart from any of the other hundreds of indie bands I've had to endure listening to this year.

Mind you, had they not repeated themselves, the time saved could have meant an extra song in the set, so, small mercies and all that!
Andy Nathan writes: Given that only Graham Gouldman is left from the original quartet of 10cc songwriters, and that they seem to be on the 'scampi in a basket' touring oldies circuit, I was rather sceptical about them beforehand, joking that they should be named 2.
From their own songs, Thirty Years Too Late, the sort of song you could imagine having been penned by Neil Young, deserves a mention. Maybe I'm wrong, but it didn't look like Harry James on drums this time. The same could be said of the dreampop band Paper Boats that followed and the third band, The Toniks. What can I say about the next band on stage other than I, and all the others who witnessed the performance, were blown away.
There are fresh water standpipes at regular distances around the campsite and water butts for fire fighting.
