The Six appear at flower show
event, billed as 'A weekend of family fun' gained hefty local interest
and spawned rave reviews form The Huddersfield Examiner who wrote:
'About 15,000 people are estimated to have turned up at Greenhead Park to watch top local bands and for a feast of funfairs, stalls and flowers. The free event, arranged by Kirklees Council's cultural services department, finished with a grand finale of fireworks.
This year's event was held jointly with Huddersfield 61st Flower, Vegetable and Handicraft Show. Organisers said they were delighted by more than 1,000 entries for all categories, despite a dismal summer. Show organiser Geoff Hirst said:
"We were very pleased with the number of entries, considering the fact we have had appalling weather in June, July and August.
"This year we started a new competition for children's handicraft and the response has been very encouraging," he added.'
The Six appeared bemused as they turned up to find a giant Budgie singing 'The Birdie Song' on the very stage they were about to perform on. Apparently this was something to do with Pulse FM, the local radio station. Paul of The Six decided he needed a good stiff drink and headed off to a large tent only to find that it was full of oversized prize vegetables. Though the local produce was very impressive, there was NO BEER. However, The Six rocked on in adverse conditions and managed to play though their set without any complaints. And the firework display at the end of the night was breathtaking.
