The Glastonbury of Amsterdam!

By Benjamin Arthur

It was yet another sell out for this year’s bonfire night celebrations. We could sell the tickets

for this event 3 or 4 times over. It truly has become the Glastonbury of Amsterdam!

And you can see why. The children ate toffee apples and waved their sparklers around. Dads

got stuck into the beer & burgers, Mums made do with a mulled wine or two. There was the

ever present roaring fire, expertly managed by Craig and his wonderful voluntary team.

The Guys got burned and Chairman Nick announced that all Britsoc members and friends

should keep a keen eye on the website for future events.

Then, at the end of it all, we had what many considered to have been the best ever Britsoc

fireworks display! All in all a great event. Was great to be there to have captured it all.
