Hi,
This year I'd join to the Festival dedicated to Frankie, I'm searching just personal opinions (or a personal description too) of people who has been in there.
Thanks :D

I believe that after twenty years they have dropped the 'Frankie Kennedy' name. The school now flies under a new name. I have seen the posters for this year but I can't recall what it is.

There has to be a story behind that change of name.

But I'm too far out of the loop to have any idea what it is.

Cheques and PMs accepted :wink:
