The 'Secret Widget Festival' is being curated by a highly experienced team whose talents have graced respected festivals such as Weyfest and A New Day. At heart, the festival is about community and great days out with outstanding live music.
Locally-based musician and songwriter Saiichi Sugiyama, whose band play on Saturday 8th September said, "I am really looking forward to the Secret Widget Festival. People locally have heard me on BBC Radio Surrey, seen my band on stage in Farnham, at Weyfest, and at Cranleigh Arts Centre, and here we are again. We'll be playing our classic songs and new ones from our upcoming album and we're part of a great line up."
You can also hear a festival organiser talk on BBC Radio Surrey in the afternoon of 5th September.
In the meantime, Festival Director Keith Burchett told us, "The three days of Secret Widget Festival will be very special indeed. Musically, we are presenting a festival of fabulous music, played by musical maestros young and old, covering over sixty years!. This will be a fantastic festival with both nostalgia and discovery, where the past meets the present across three stages, a feast of amazing talent spanning those sixty and more years of wonderful music and memories. Glam Rockers Slade, Soul/Blues legend Geno Washington, Prog Rock Kings Focus, the stunning voice of Chris Farlowe, 60's icons The Swinging Blue Jeans! 60's chart-toppers The Nashville Teens! Wow! We have over one hundred super-talented musicians coming, including many household names. They will perform in a family friendly atmosphere."
