Les Glover | Huntingdon Music Festival


When a group of like-minded music fans met up, thanks to the Facebook group ‘Working towards a vibrant Huntingdon’, they hoped to put on an occasional gig or two. A few weeks later they had lined up three great July evenings! Group member Ste Greenall explained, “I’d already arranged for Henry Priestman, formerly with 80’s chart-toppers The Christians, to play a little show. But within a couple of weeks we had booked Glenn Tilbrook of the band Squeeze and Pete Riley and Amy Wadge. Amy won a Grammy in February for co-writing “Thinking Out Loud” with Ed Sheeran.”

Henry, supported by Les Glover, is in The Old Court Rooms in the Town Hall on Saturday 2 July and Pete and Amy, supported by local duo Ruby Muse, are in St Mary’s Church on Sunday 3 July.

“Our music group name comes, of course, from the post-code,” added Ste “and our aim is to set up gigs throughout the year in the town. We’d like to stage regular, intimate shows in the Court Rooms under the banner “The Court Room Sessions” but we have a lot to do yet for the July shows. We are really hoping that music fans across the district will support what we are doing.”
