Live on the Green 2019, Report

Live on the Green 2019, Report

Early August in Shearsby means one thing - Live on the Green, our mini music fest on the green in the heart of our village. Well, this year it was a triumphant celebration of live music, starting with a Brass Quintet LE8 Five who opened with a sound and repertoire that is quintessentially English, followed by Shearsby's very own Reformers who rocked us with covers of hits from The Killers to Amy Winehouse. Finding Georgia then brought us a combination of country and rock sounds, and last but not least the original lineup of The Platforms got everyone up and dancing to Glam Rock numbers including Queen, ABBA and T-Rex.
It was our 25th anniversary and it was up there with the very best, a warm and (mostly!) dry evening, 500 people letting what's left of their hair down and over £4000 raised for community funds plus over £500 for Loros and Leicester Children's Hospital Appeal. Thanks to all who performed, helped, organised and attended...and roll on 2020...
