Hurst View Dubfest

A couple of months back Me, Grace and Obi popped along to a little show called Hurst View Dubfest, it was only 25 miles from home at the bottom of the New Forest.

The campsite is one of our favorite ones , we have visited a few times before so we knew what to expect there. The show itself was not bad, there were a lack of VDubs in the show and shine, only a handful really, next year i will be putting Arnie in for it lol.

The first day was wet and windy, we had a little walk around the campsite with Obi then spent most of the day in and around Arnie. We could see the stage from his back window so we was laying in there watching the Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra acts (They was very good) then had a few games of rummy before hitting the bed for some ZZZZZZ's.

The next morning was red hot, completely the opposite of the Friday. A few more campers arrived so we had a good old look around them. We headed over to the entertainment area so Grace could have a bet on the ferret racing then try her hand on the mechanical bull! She done really well and held on for 40 seconds before face planting off onto the padding, i tried to keep a straight face but couldn't hold the laughing in for long! I also got a photo of the moment of impact lol :)

In the evening there was the legends that are Chas and Dave on stage, i have listened to these since i was knee high to a grass hopper and was a little excited to see them live. If you don't know them they are proper cockney lads from London, There music is not for everyone but the songs are fun. They now have a new fan in Grace, she enjoyed the set and was singing along to the rabbit song. When the gig finished we could see them chatting away behind the stage so me and Grace took a little walk around the side and ended up meeting Dave from the band! needless to say i was chuffed! We even got a photo with him :)

Sunday was another cracker of a day, sun burning in the sky and hardly a cloud in sight. yet again we took Obi out and headed over to the (small) show and shine to see what was there and was hoping to buy some bits from the stalls only to find 90% of them had packed up and left in the early hours.

Hopefully next years show will attract a lot more VWs as its a lovely little site for it and a good set up with the entertainment side of things.
I will be advertising it on here to try and help get the word out!

We will be visiting Hurst View campsite a few more times this year for sure, check out there website if you are heading to the New Forest any time soon.
