Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool 5 August 2017 RIP Part 1

As I write this piece The Hope And Glory Twitter account is in meltdown as the aftermath of yesterday’s calamitous events and the subsequent cancelling of its second day today continued to rankle with its attendees.  People are understandably unhappy at being turned away or suffering overcrowding within the venue.  Acts were running a good two hours behind schedule on the main stage which meant that Charlotte Church was axed from the line up and other acts had their set time drastically cut.  I was lucky enough to fully enjoy the day, not being a drinker anymore I had no queues to contend with for my tea and doughnuts.  Still, the music that was on offer was of the highest quality both from well established acts and some more less known artists.  The acts I caught below were Badly Drawn Boy, AbiChan, Embrace, , Chris Helme, Lucy Spraggan and Razorlight.
