The Heswall Village Fete looks set to be just another of those boring events when the children’s entertainment turns extravagant. Coldplay’s stage gets bigger and bigger, the lights come on and speakers catch on fire before the final departure in a helicopter. Phil Harvey, known as the fifth member of Coldplay, appears in the video as one of the parents holding a video camera.
