Alice Wicked Tea Party – Photos

Sandwiched smack between Bearded Theory and Download is Alice’s Wicked Tea Party.  Curated by Wicked Spins Radio Alice’s Wicked Tea party is a tiny grass roots festival showcasing an array of alternative music.

Of course at events like this the bands you see are unlikely to be household names but that does not diminish the quality of what is on offer.  Having spent the evening there yesterday I saw eight bands all of whom I would happily see again, not a dud amongst them.  I thought it would be nice to share a few photos before I head off to today’s festivities.

The festival is situated behind the Cross Keys pub just a few miles from Wimborne in Dorset.  Day tickets are just £25 on the gate if you fancy a day out.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
