Gomstock 2011 Charity Music Festival at The Compasses Inn Gomshall Surrey

September 21st, 2011

Gomstock 2011 Charity Music Festival held at The Compasses Inn in Gomshall, between Dorking and Guildford, Surrey is a lovely music festival to play at. The audience is used to good quality music every Friday, where Fiona, the landlady not only pays a musician fee but she also passes around a helmet to collect a donation from the enthusiastic audience as a contribution to the artist.

 

 













The weather stayed sunny all through my set and I enjoyed bending those strings. ‘Waiting in the Wings’ went over well with the audience.

In recent years The Compasses has been responsible for organising a mini music festival now known as ‘Gomstock’. The festival is set within the delightful surroundings of The Compasses garden with green lawns rolling down to the gently flowing Tilling Bourne brook., where they hold a fun duck race.

 The event features musicians and other entertainment activities for all age groups hence ‘Gomstock’ has now become a favourite family event which attracts both locals and visitors from much further afield. The proceeds of this charity music event are distributed to charities nominated by Fiona, the Landlady. All musicians invited to perform kindly give their services completely free of charge. The event takes place during the last August Bank Holiday weekend; this year on Sunday 28th .
