Reviews of 2012’s event –
“All in all, Gig in the Garden was a beautifully organised event. Family friendly and fun for everyone else, the heady combination of local brews, local grub, local music and local people meant that the sunshine and gorgeous backdrop was the icing on the cake. Everyone knows it’s good to support local, but the Gig in the Garden proved, not only that it is easily done, but also that we’ve a hell of a lot of be proud of.” – BBC Across the Line
