A dog friendly family weekend at the Sunshine Festival (review)

Glorious weather during the August bank holiday weekend made sure the Sunshine Festival lived up to its name.

The usual Rocky Horror show ingredients were all present and correct. Sci-fi, horror, comedy and music. All the classic songs brought the show to life, with a large dose of innuendo and humour thrown in. Of course, there were some wacky costumes on show too. The show Richard O’Brien’s legendary show first took to the stage back in 1973. An immediate hit, it has since been seen by millions in theatres…
