Peace Love and Laughter
Earlier this year we said goodby to one of Regfest's Original Reggies -
Singer Songwriter 'Reggie Rarebreed' one half of Lazlo's Diary & Regfest's resident Sunday Evening band.
We held a small Regfest in his honour the day after he past away in May and vowed to make this year's Bank Holiday Knees up - extra special.
Ali (Reggies other half - and Lazlo's lead singer) will be there with Reggies family including baby Hugo, Reggies grandson born early June. Congratulations Jasmine and Ray on his safe arrival. The usual shinanigans will take place including great live music at JB's (Dovedales premier night spot)
The DJ's performing at The Mini Shed Of Sound will keep you dancing well into the early hours with the Silent disco.
Or sit by the fire in the 'Lounge' and chat until the cows come home.
