2012 Festival Round Up

So long in the planning and so soon over - I guess that is the way with festivals and events.
The weather was nearly kind to us, at least no hail or storms this year. It wasn't over warm on Monday and there were a few spots of rain, but nowhere near as bad as the forecast.
The visitor numbers were up on last year and from what we can gather from your feedback, you found lovely things to buy and join in with.

Here are some pictures we took ...
Starting with gardens:

Bunting to highlight the venues (it works -some visitors stopped because of the bunting to join in)

A selection of the artists:
Phil Coates

Gail MacGregor

Stevie Davies

Lesley Nason

Helen Domleo

Mel Anderson

Michelle Gillam Hull
And activities:
On the children's trail - make your own stonehenge
Joliba Drummers with a young hopeful
Storytelling in action with Sophie Snell
Artcore and Indian block printing in progress

We hope to have a bit of film to add soon and we hope that if anyone has any more pictures of the festival or comments for our attention that you send these to us at

Don't forget - if you want to get involved in the festival next year as an organiser, venue, artist, performer -  get in touch  with us on the above email.
If you just love visiting, then watch this space for more details, or get yourself on the mailing list for the Beetroot Tree where we will let you know what the plans are.
