The festival takes over a large green space called The Kinecroft in the middle of the town
Here there are all manner of stalls and entertainments...
|I'm not sure that all these flags are for actual countries.|
|An interesting challenge for the insurance industry|
.. but there are no precautions to address the health needs of the donkeys!
|For a moment, I thought the local buses had entered into the colourful spirit of the occasion|
There was dancing of course or I wouldn't have been there.The local sports centre has quite a decent floor although it's not too large. The organisers cleverly put the better known band on the Friday night and the local hopefuls on Saturday to balance the numbers. Unfortunately, I didn't get any good pictures except this one of musicians at the late night session. "J²ohn" turned up, cleared away a few chairs and started teaching Mazurkas. We also did a Chapelloise with only three couples which may have been a "first".
The festival also celebrates Beer and I was amused by the offering on the right...
