I start my referring you to a blog written a year ago, funnily enough titled Coming soon…. unfest14 and from that I save myself three years of memory writing.

As for the past year. Well, we were very involved in unfest14, from ukuleles to poetry to fanzines and much more. From that I have become rather immersed in all things Forum. Blam! fanzine has continued, and the fourth issue is on it’s way to the printers now, ready for this weekend. Somewhere along the way, as I was taking Blam! around the cafes and coffee shops of Royal Tunbridge Wells, I started taking the monthly Forum flyers. Then I submitted to taking on the majority of the twitter account. Then… oh, then I ran out of time to write blogs. Also, they got a little biased. Once you have followed a gig from booking, to poster, to promotion, it’s quite hard to want to be at another venue seeing something else other than ‘your’ gig. There have been some incredible ones, such as keeping secret the fact that Everything Everything were coming to play, and being pinned to the wall during Slaves trying to get some photos for the local paper, there have also been some smaller, quieter ones…

but the evening Tim Vantol played, supported by The Gallerys, will always be a memorable one…

So, to unfest15. It starts on Friday evening (22nd May) with a launch party in The Forum, featuring Get Inuit, Rory Indiana, and Best Foot Forward DJs. It will carry on here and there during Saturday and Sunday, and end on Monday in The Forum with a charity fundraiser organised by The Acoustic Reverb Collective. You can read about it in Blam!, or on twitter @unfestTW @TWForum and if you are lucky – I’ll have time to take a few photos…
