Lovely crowd. Great local event
Went on my own. Met lots of nice friendly people. Enjoyed Jazzie B set. Chaka Khan left me wanting more. No words for her talent and entertainment value.
A bit disappointed with the VIP area. Two food outlets only so not enough choice. But my jerk wrap was freshly made and tasty. The loos had bigger queues than outside loos. Then ran out of water for hand washing. No maintenance.
Most disappointing was you had to leave the VIP area to get a view of the main stage so the value of seating was then lost.
On arrival at herne hill gate I was wrongly directed to the furthest Brixton entrance despite telling the staff I had a VIP ticket and I clearly have a mobility difficulty and said so. I felt this was cruel and callous. I imagined them having a good laugh st my expense.
Only 2 entrances does not work for the cordoned off area with high perimeter fence. Felt like trumps trump's Mexican wall. More fates please and better briefing for staff regarding nearest entrance and mobility. Could have been disastrous had an emergency incident occurred.
Loved the event but the organisation behind it was poor.
