We threw our second ever Rusty Summer Street party on Saturday 29th July. Like last year, we closed off a section of Hurst Street, rolled up our beer truck stage, and settled in for a day of live music, beer and food.
Luckily the weather cooperated and we had glorious, hot sunshine all day.
Ha, just kidding! In classic British summer style, it chucked it down – but people just pulled out their umbrellas, zipped their jackets up, and carried on. And it was pretty wonderful. We were treated to the sweet sounds of Rusty favourites including Sian Lloyd-Jones, Johnny Payne & The Thunder, Death of the Maiden, Little Mammoths, Little Brother Eli, Joaquim & the Smoke Machine, and Zaia. We drank a bit more beer than we should have. We ate burgers and pizzas outside, even though to be quite honest it was a bit chilly and damp. And we loved every minute of celebrating with this neighbourhood that we're lucky to be a part of.
And now we're closing our doors for ten days, while our beloved Rusty gets a much-needed refurb. In the meantime, relive the street party magic:
