Essential festival Stanmer Park 1991

by Will Turner 7 October 2010

I’m trying to find out information on a festival I attended in 1991 at Stanmer Park, I think it was the 1st Essential festival.
I’m not sure If it ran for more than one day, but on the day I went I’m pretty sure It was mainly indie bands. Sadly I can remember nothing about it other than I felt other than I felt sick on the way home ( must of been a bad pint).
I’ve tried searching online for the line up and actual dates but have drawn a blank. I’m trying to track down details of all the gigs I attended in the nineties and this is the one that proving the most tricky, so I would be very grateful If anyone has any recollection of it.
Cheers, Will
