Kingston Upon Thames, United Kingdom
BANQUET'S BIG DAY OUT is an all day outdoor festival event at Imber Court, Esher. Just 4 miles from the middle of Kingston.
Kids In Glass Houses, Deaf Havana, Neville Staple of The Specials, Futures, The Skints, The Lagan, Tall Ships and DJs Cyantific and David Rodigan are the first of our announcements. There's three music areas over the 5000+ capacity site, plus more non-music features still to be announced.
As well as being a record shop, we at Banquet Records are a concert promoter throughout the year (last year alone we put on over 200 shows!). We've been looking to do something festival-like, like this, for years. After many false starts with potential locations in and around Kingston, we've found the perfect site to put on some of our favourite bands, from the different music worlds that Banquet loves. The grounds are excellent, the staging and the PA are everything we could have hoped for, the parking and travel links are bang on. Unlike anywhere in Kingston, the alcohol licensing rules are such that there'll be no restrictions for over 18s to have a beer in the sun and watch some great bands, whilst people of all ages are invited to come to the festival.
