Foodival's Entertainment

This year we enjoyed the varied pleasures of five musical performances and one theatrical Giant Pea! Dermot Jones opened the afternoon with some of his own tunes and beautiful instrumental guitar work. Then all the way from the deep south came Slim Estrada, accompanied by Pablo X, giving us their unique flavour of the Louisiana badlands (via Ealing apparently).

Slim was unphased by the entrance of a Giant Pea parade half way through his set, led by fanSHEN Theatre as the culmination of their summer Field Day season. The mood changed a bit when the massed ranks of Balham Ukulele Society took to the stage with upbeat renditions of popular songs that really made you smile.

Amy Fitz-Doyley soothed us with her self penned songs about urban life playing beat box and keyboards before mid-life crisis rockers The Renegades closed the event with several food-themed covers of the classics that got us dancing!
