Saturday 21st was the 3rd year for the one day festival, Simmstock at my former university ST Mary's University College. I of course attended the previous festivals, and they were both amazing due to the music, drinks flowing and the great weather. Therefore I was more than excited to come back to my former university to enjoy the 3rd Simmstock. The day before I was getting worried how the weather will act for the day, however we were all extremely lucky in not seeing a single rain drop throughout the whole day.
Before arriving to the festival, we of course started off some pre-drinking, with a generous helping of a fruit punch, which I lost track of ingredients pouring into the cauldron.
With more drinks and the music kicking off, everyone was put straight into a good mood, especially as the sun was shinning well into the sky. It was nice to see people I had not seen since graduating as well, I've always said I would use this yearly event as a way to catch up with people I don't get to see the rest of the year, and this year at Simmstock was no exception.
The whole festive day was a lot of fun, and some of the music was fantastic. The most impressive was a Motown band giving out all the classics for us all to sing and dance together. This band play every year and are a great crowd pleaser.
The end of the evening arrived, and thats when I realised how much of a good effort St Mary's had made this year for Simmstock. If this keeps happening the festival should be a great landmark event every year for the area of Twickenham, which I personally think will be a great thing to happen.
