The Trowbridge Village Pump Festival has been a regular event on the summer calendar for decades, but in more recent years the musical line-up took a different turn, a new site meant the festival moved away from it's home town, and the organisers eventually called it a day.
But after a successful one-off event in 2018, our guest this week has plans to revitalise the festival and bring it back to its former glory.
Nick Reed has been a part of the festival since the eighties, from a child attending with his parents, to working backstage, and now taking a top seat in planning the 2022 event.
He tells us about the festival's history, why it disappeared off the calendar, and how work is already underway for a weekend event next year.
On the music menu, Nick chooses a track from traditional folk group Gigspanner, featuring Steeleye Span's Peter Knight. We also play a tune from south west based act Samantics, who is currently touring the UK with a previous guest on Sheer Isolation, Frank Turner.
This episode was created by Kieran Moore in Trowbridge (and the Wye Valley) and Jon Ponting in Cricklade.
