Not just bluegrass and banjos!


This week we explore Essex’s very own country music festival – Dixie Fields – coming to Chelmsford from 12th to 14th July. Georgie Thorogood, one of the creators of Dixie Fields, shares her pick of the line-up, what she’s most looking forward to and how she’s hoping to bring a little Nashville to CM1!

You can pick up tickets to Dixie Fields, or find out more at

Follow them on @dixiefields on instagram or twitter and on facebook it’s Dixie Fields Festival.

Also on #FeelgoodSaturday today – I launched my bid to get Billericay its rightful starring role on a Christmas telly special! I need your help with that one so listen and get involved! Plus we found out how much money those skintight trousers Sandy wore in Grease are due to go for at auction later this year (it’s a lot!).
