Cause and Effect

War & Peace Revival Day Three

The feud between Scott Elvis and Adam Hoffman continues. Scott parked the outdoor entertainments vehicle outside the door of the Victory Marquee and blasted out Heartbreak Hotel just as Alan  was starting his set inside. Adam saw him off and continued his song.

Adam always gets revenge but Elvis suspected nothing when several fans asked him to sing ‘Devil in Disguise’ in his next appearance.

It all started so well –

Could that be a plan being hatched in the background?

 

Things were happening behind Scott Elvis

 

The shock was real enough

But like the great performer he is – the show went on

The moment he realised who had worked the plan.

Another outstanding day at the War & Peace Revival – It was a bit warm – The fabulous ‘Duettes’ summed the day up. “Too Darned Hot” A fantastic show with amazing performers. Only Today and Tomorrow left. Don’t miss out come on down to The Hop Farm but remember your hat and sun cream.

Victoria & Holly Light Up War & Peace Revival Day One

The Girls in the Yellow Dresses

The Duettes, Holly from Ashford and Victoria from Folkestone, stole the show on the first day of the War & Peace Revival at the Whitbread Hopfields Event Centre, Beltring near Paddock Wood.

Holly & Victoria harmonised brilliantly and reeled off forties and fifties favourites to a packed audience on a blazing hot afternoon in the ‘Dad’s Army’ featured Victory Marquee.

Old favourites Adam Hoffman & Scott Elvis were back with Adam up to his usual tricks – stealing the microphone from Scott as he was about to start his set.

Viv the Spiv, the best compare in the world, conducted affairs with his usual inimitable line of banter, probably with an armful of watches up his sleeve and a few pairs of silk stockings in his pocket.

The show runs on tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Don’t miss out on the finest Military vehicle event on the Globe and its amazing variety of all things vintage, even a 1940s village with the original pub with no beer.

Many pictures and stories from the show will be included in Rye’s Own, Cinque Ports and Hastings Town in the months to come with extra special features in our new Magazine “Vintage World” the first issue of which will be available at Christmas.

Seven for Tea

Rye Wheelers Tuesday Afternoon Ride at Ham Street

 

Seven riders made up the group for a recent Tuesday afternoon ‘gentle ride’ through the lanes of Romney Marsh from Appledore Bridge via Newchurch to Ham Street, where they mad a bee-line for the Cosy Kettle at the Lantern Building in The Street for refreshments.

The ride back to Appledore, through more lanes, totalled another eight miles on the fifteen ridden before the refreshment stop so a total of 23 miles was comfortable enough for riders of any standard.

Come and join us at 1pm. Appledore Bridge on any Tuesday. Good fun for everyone with a bonus of fitness and weight loss. Very little traffic on these Rye Wheeler routes and the sun always shines on Tuesday afternoons.
