Clee Fest 2015

The fourth annual Clee Fest was hailed as the biggest and best yet and thousands gathered at Cleethorpes Meridian Showground for a festival of music and fun.

GHoPA attended and brought archery to the festival for anyone to have a go, it was a great success as people came back repeatedly to have a go.

Characters from the children’s movie Frozen, including Anna, Elsa and Olaf, mingled with the members of One Direction tribute band One D and had photos taken with many of the children at the open air festival.

Gary said: “There has been something for everyone. We have Viking battles re-enacted, throwing teddy out of the bed in aid of the YMCA, and archery from Get Hooked On Positive Activities.”

He also praised the performances from Madness tribute band One Step Behind and the Bon Jovi tribute.

The Idols and The Dangerous Brothers, who opened with Louis Armstrong’s song, went down a treat with the crowds.

Gary added: “We are very happy and pleased with the response and thank the people of Cleethorpes and thank the resort for making all this possible.”

He also thanked Steve Stanley, of Solid Entertainments, for the stage management.

Claire Cole, 34, of Scartho, said: “It has been amazing and great fun.”

Sophie Askam, 27, of Cleethorpes, was loving the Idols singing Fleetwood Mac songs.

She said: “It is my first Clee Fest but I am thinking of bringing the children next year because it is such fun. It is bringing everyone together.”

Tegan Kennedy, 18, said: “Everyone is friendly and there is no bother. It is a nice local event.

“We brought the tent knowing the British weather, but it has been great, too.”

Sophie Marriott, 26, of Grimsby, was with friends Pete Wood, 48, of Ladysmith Road, Grimsby, and Lianne Bracey, 21, of Grimsby. Sophie said: “The music is great. It is nice to see all ages enjoying themselves. There is something for everyone. The Fake Fest is here, but there is nothing for the kids.”

The Reverend Andy Tappin, youth community manager and chaplain for the YMCA, led a team to set up the Throw The Teddy Out The Bed contest.

It was wheeled the four miles of the Cleethorpes Carnival last weekend and was reduced to just one wheel.

He said: “Clee Fest has been a fantastic event. The sun has come out and the music is brilliant and everyone is enjoying the day.”
