Summer Soulstice 10
En5 Radio were very honoured once again to bring you all the action from the amazing Summer Soulstice 10 festival held right here in Barnet.
Some top acts performed this year including Natasha Watts, Omar, Vivienne McKone, Kenny Thomas, Beggar and Co all backed by the fantastic Ernie McKone Band and then of course the headliners Incognito.
The rain did not stop the revellers from enjoying the event and all through the day all that could be seen were smiling faces and the atmosphere was fantastic.
Here are just a small selection of pictures from the day.
LETS TEE OFF
It is always a huge honour to be asked to assist in a local event and on a sunny but windy Friday 13th May 2016 Johno took part in a charity Golf Day at the Shire in Barnet, held by our friends at Oliver and Akers.
Golfers were perfectly safe from Johno's poor swing as he did not take part in playing but rather was asked to witness if any of the golfers managed to hit a hole in one on the 12th Hole, had they of done so they would have won a £20,000 car. Sadly due to windy conditions the car remained safe, however the event was a huge success and over £4000 raised for the respective charities. Congratulations to everyone involved.
During the day Johno managed to say hi to former Barnet FC players and managers Gary Phillips and Giuliano Grazioli and former Arsenal and England number one David Seaman.
En5 Radio would like to say a massive well done to our friends from the Summer Soulstice, who on Saturday 30th August 2015 handed over a huge cheque for £40,000 to Cherry Lodge. This was raised at the annual Summer Soulstice event held in June 2015.
Well done to all involved.
