This week we shine the spotlight on Jonny from Red House Farm ahead of our Super Special Summer Supper Club – tickets coming your way very very soon so keep your eyes peeled.
We cannot wait to bring Our Kids Social’s Silent Disco magic to the farm as the sun goes down.
We found out a bit more about life at the farm for Jonny and his tribe …
1 What’s your name and where do you come from?
Hello I’m Jonny Hewitt and I was come from Dunham Massey, however I’ve had a very circuitous route back to the village I was born in after vowing never to return to the village I was born in, work on a farm or marry the girl from around the corner!
2 Could you tell us a little bit about your collaboration with OKS, how it came about, what’s going to be happening?
I remember Alice from my youth ! . Through meeting up, and having numerous meetings in the sandpit at Red House Farm, we are delighted to be working together with the silent disco here at the farm. Its a brilliant concept, everyone dancing and sound of the countryside not being interrupted
3 Which three words best describe Red House Farm.
Real – Happy – Fun
4 Whats your families guilty pleasure tune for a kitchen disco?
My 7 year old daughter, Erin, is loving Beyonce at the moment (All the single ladies) My son Monty is listening on repeat to Feel it Still by Portugal or Changing by Sigma / Paloma Faith, for me I still love Don’t Stop Moving by S Club 7 – classics like this never go out of fashion! Steph has an 80’s play list hidden in Spotify
5 Whats your favourite attractions for Cheshire families (aside from RHF) and why?
I do love the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm, its a real wow and something to aspire to. The kids love going to John Leigh Park in Altrincham still and of course I do love going for a walk in Dunham Park. I am very fortunate that my parents still live in the Kitchen Gardens of Dunham Hall across the road from it.
6 Where do you go for a knees up without the nippers?
Going into Altrincham is great and myself and Steph love going to eat at Altrincham Market, we had our last meal out though at Hawksmoor in Manchester, the service ambiance and food was magnificent
7 What are your top three song suggestions for our silent disco playlist?
Probably the ones I have just mentioned!
8 How do you destress from a day at the farm? Box set and feet up, hang with kids, reach for the wine?
Plenty of exercise, and like a lot of people, waiting for Game of Thrones …
9 What was the first album / single you can remember buying? How old were you and what format did you buy it in?
I got asked this some years ago for a BBC Radio Manchester Interview, and then they played it, my first ever single I bought was ‘I want to be your property’ by Blue Mercedes. What a long lasting pop career they had !
