This Saturday with the fantastic sunny weather some 2,000 teenagers spent the day at the Park taking part in the annual Butsetfest. This is an alcohol and drugs free event featuring local and national up and coming bands.

There were two stages. The ‘friends stage’ with bands such as Feed The Rhino, Shadows Chasing Ghosts, Polar Floods and Violet. And the main stage with Kids In Glass Houses, Lower Than Atlantis, Yashin and England Road.

 

There was a huge queue at 11.00am when the event opened and with free activities throughout the day, most of those present stayed until 10.30 pm when the last band ended.

At that point the visitor centre car park and adjacent events fields became a giant one way system designed to get all the cars back on to the A3 quickly and safely.The lead partner in Butserfest is East Hampshire District Council who are assisted by a great many volunteers. Next year the event will take place on Saturday the 14th September.
