Chapel Allerton Arts Festival 2016

We had a great time on Saturday playing at Chapel Allerton Arts Festival! This year we were lucky enough to be on the main stage (sheltered from the relentless rain) and be joined by our friends Sunshine and Smiles.

A big thank you to everyone who came out to play and those who braved the rain to support us from the audience.

Here are some great photos thanks to CLAIRE FLEGG and CHAPEL ALLERTON FESTIVAL 🙂

We’ve had a busy old few weeks playing lots of songs together and playing a gig last week. A big thank you to all of you who came out to play for the RVS AGM – we had a great time and the audience really enjoyed it. They even sang along and it was lovely to play some new songs too.
