Once again this weekend our beloved village was home to a 3 day festival; bringing bands, bars and brightness to the park.
You may recall I blogged about the previous one – Jazz, Funk and Soul, back in July.
This time it was the turn of the Folk Festival which, over the years, has become less about just folk. Gaz Coombes of SuperGrass played and Sunday night was headlined by The Monkees!
I honestly can’t comment on the music, as it was just a backdrop to a wonderful couple of days in magical surroundings. We were blessed with gorgeous weather on Sunday and it totally made it; chilling out on picnic blankets with friends drinking lots of pink wine and soaking up the late summer sun.
Here it is in pictures – we didn’t head down until early evening on Saturday.
Remember I said on my Hat-urday post that I barely wear my 70s floppy hat? I put that right!
Lots of face painting and people looking pretty (I did ask these people if I could share their photographs!)
Sunday was nice enough for me to bust out another hat I haven’t worn yet – the straw cowboy one.
The entrance to the park is so green and secluded; you’d never know it was just off the main road.
I drank a lot of wine.
Accosted a Morris Dancer for photographs (and swapped hats with him!)
Had to have a little lie down on the blanket (I blame the wine)
Look at the weather – just gorgeous!
Got my face painted.
What a fabulous time we had!
