Games for May festival announced

The first Fruits de Mer festival for 2015 is announced well in advance so no one can claim that they are too busy to attend, if you happen to be in Putney on May 24, 2015.

by Henry Schneider, Published 2014-10-20

The news from Keith Jones/FdM:

Fruits de Mer Records and Mega Dodo Records join forces for a Bank Holiday Sunday afternoon and evening of great music at the famous Half Moon in Putney.

Tir na nOg, Schnauser, Mark and The Clouds, The Past Tense and The Honey Pot all playing live, lots of stuff for sale from both labels and the bands, AND an exclusive 7" single for everyone who buys a ticket AND turns up on the day!

Acid-folk, progressive rock, psychedelia and much more - all for £15 (plus the Half Moon £1.50 booking fee - you have to buy tickets direct from the Half Moon site).

It's a long way way, i know, but at least there's no excuse for you to tell us you've got a prior engagement.

The Half Moon has a capacity of 220, it's one of London's best venues (I had my stag do there, so it must be good!) - including a great pub, real ale, good food; Putney Bridge tube is just 1/2 mile away, a Premier Inn even nearer, parking spaces nearby (free, i think, as it's a Sunday); I don't know how quickly the tickets will sell, but i wanted to give Fruits de Mer club members as much warning as possible.
