Kew the Music -winkworth

Last night saw Kew the Music kick off for another year and not only was the weather perfect for the opening night but the great music and relaxed, happy atmosphere emanating from the crowd meant that the evening was a great success!Headlining the first night was Blondie, who opened with the brilliant ‘One Way or Another’, followed by classic hits including ‘The Tide is High’, ‘Maria’ and ‘Heart of Glass’. Debbie Harry’s voice was undoubtedly as good as it was twenty years ago and her orange outfit and ivy headdress was a nice nod to the beautiful venue of Kew Gardens. The band was supported by Hugh Cornwell, original singer of The Stranglers, who also put on a great performance.

The crowd were on their feet throughout the night, singing along to all the songs and clearly having a brilliant time. The venue was packed with people enjoying picnics with their family and friends and there really wasn’t a better place to be in sunny London yesterday evening.

The night was topped off with an amazing firework display as Blondie performed their encore, the perfect end to a brilliant night.

Winkworth have been one of the sponsors of the event for the past three years now and have lots of on-sight branding to look out for if you are heading down to the event over the next five days, even including one of our branded taxis! We also have a team at the event every night handing out some freebies so make sure if you are going along to say hi to them – you won’t miss them in their Winkworth t-shirts!
