Video: Alfresco busk is forced indoors, but Berkofest is planning for weather woe

SUNDAY’S alfresco BerkoFest busk turned into an indoor concert thanks to this terribly British summer we’re having.

While it’s a shame that the amazing music didn’t hit the High Street the event was, nonetheless, a great success.

Compered by leading local musician Shane Lamont the Kings Arms rocked to the sound of a host of huge talent – much of which was very young and therefore all the more impressive.

16-year-old Charlie Goodall played his second ever gig – at the first he was signed to a music company, which gives you some idea of his calibre.

The Mans Machine, Louis Hitchcock, Henry Parker, Tom Billington, and lots more – all brilliant, all names to remember for the future.

And this is just a taster of the music in store for us in September, with organisers also promising comedy to look forward to, kids’ entertainment and a lovely, lovely indulgence zone.

If you’ve yet to book a ticket there are numerous ways of doing so – go online at to find out more.

And don’t worry about the weather. We’ve got a few months for that miserable jet stream to move into the correct position and even if it continues to deluge BerkoFest have several very big tents to protect you from the wet stuff.

BerkoFest will be at Berkhamsted Sports Club, HP4 1HE on Saturday, September 15 from 11am to 10pm.
