It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of one of the directors and founding members of the Gate to Southwell Festival,
Adrian Button, ‘Adey’ was well known and respected on the local roots music circuit, and a passionate, enthusiastic and talented musician. His favourite form of music was probably Irish, but his eclecticism knew no bounds! He was also a great spotter of talent, being the first to pick up on several acts who we subsequently booked, the Henry Girls being just one example. As well as being part of the artist selection committee, Adey also organised the concessions and was immensely popular with the traders.
We offer our sincere condolences to all his family.
He will be sorely missed.
