“It’s All Kinging Off” Events Create a Sense of Community and Celebrates the Kings Coronation

The recent “It’s All Kinging Off” events held over the coronation bank holiday weekend in Andover were a huge success, attracting large crowds and creating a real sense of community.

Featuring live music, food, and drink, the events were held at The George Inn in Vernham Dean on Saturday and The Foresters Inn on London Street on Sunday. The line-ups included local artists such as Rich Harris, Rob Clamp, Route 66, Queen B & Jonno, The Showponies, and No Way Out, showcasing the rich musical talent present in Andover.

The event kicked off at The George Inn, Vernham Dean as the rain didn’t bother the masses coming out and enjoying the music and festivities under the marque. The music starting at 2pm and ran through until 11pm. The next day was at The Foresters Arms on London street, which was turned into a street party with the music starting at 2pm and due to licensing had to finish at 8pm.

Ben Tuffin, Managing Director of Andover Radio, said: “We’re thrilled with the success of the ‘It’s All Kinging Off’ events and the positive response from the community. What a way to celebrate the Kings coronation. It’s great to see people coming together to celebrate, have fun, and support local talent. The events also demonstrate the strength of Andover’s music scene and the important role it plays in the community.”

The events were well-attended and featured a diverse range of musical genres, catering to different tastes and preferences. Attendees enjoyed not only the music but also the opportunity to socialize, try new foods, and experience the vibrant atmosphere.

Love Andover’s event co-ordinator James “Stretch” Williams said “I was blown away by the energy and enthusiasm of everyone who attended the events, It was fantastic to see people of all ages coming together and having a great time. We’re already looking forward to the next events we have planned over the summer and building on this sense of community and celebration.”

The events were made possible from the sponsors, The Commercial Centre, Elite Building & Property Maintenance & Rebel Wine. The next event will be at The Angel Inn for the May bank holiday as the popular LA LA LA festival returns for it’s second year.

Andover Radio plans to continue supporting local music and community events and looks forward to bringing more opportunities for entertainment and connection to the Andover area in the future.
