The Berkshire village of Daisybank has held a traditional summer fete for as long as anyone can remember, and twenty-eight-year-old waitress Tiggy Dunmore can't think of anything worse. As Cordelia and her friends discuss the 'fete worse than death' over cups of tea and cake, they come up with an alternative idea. Why not have a music festival? Just a little one, of course. Nothing like Glastonbury. Surely it can't be that difficult to set up a stage and find a few bands, can it? As the months roll on towards the last weekend in July, the Daisybank Festival begins to take shape, especially when the gorgeous Liam Maxwell, a guitarist in a local band, agrees to play. But Liam comes with a whole host of complcations and, as the hot and sunny weekend dawns, life for Tiggy and Daisybank will never be the same again.
