You would think that when we’re not busy rootling around in the workshop knocking timber frames together, or travelling up and down the country putting them up, we would take the chance, when it presented itself, to take the weekend off and do nothing more strenuous than count the damselflies flitting round the pond, or observe the beech nuts swelling like plump ticks after all this wet warm weather.
Last weekend was one such and we did nothing ……but walk through our gate into the iron age hillfort and enjoy the most exquisite and distinctive mini music festival imaginable just 50 yards from our back door!
The Full Circle festival had been dreamt up and turned into reality by the good people of Presteigne under the guidance of Alison and Pete. Bands were booked, marquees erected, caterers commissioned, signs written, bunting hung, tickets sold, and all against the looming backdrop of a hugely common pessimistic weather forecast. In fact a weather “event” which even had a name – “Spanish plume”. You know it’s serious when it’s got a name.
This was to be a no vehicle mystery festival. People who bought tickets were required to embark on a shuttle bus service from Presteigne not knowing where they would end up. Genius. I’m told there were people who attended the whole festival who still didn’t know where they’d been by the time they arrived back home (and not just because of the cider consumed)
Well, the celtic gods must have been in good spirits because, against all the odds, the weather passed us by and the sun shone, the food and drink tasted great, the bands had us all dancing and a right good time was enjoyed by all.
