A few days after Christmas, Ben and I headed to Woodford where a festival happens once a year, starting on Boxing Day and going through to New Year's Day. Our friends always make a big trip out of it, stay for the week long camp. Ben and I just went for the day and I pretty much spent the entire time melting! Oh my goodness it was so hot, it would of been close to 40 degrees that day (just happened to pick the hottest day of the festival) and since there was not a lot of shade I kind of went crazy! I'm always the first to proclaim I love the heat and summer and being hot but it was that belting down kind of sun that made me feel crazy and dizzy and I think I got mad at Ben for buying me a poster...sorry Ben!
The festival itself contains lots of different tents and inside - bands and workshops, talks and other random creative things - we made ourselves an itinerary before we let but that kind of got abandoned in the heat :p
It's sort of hard to see in this photos but the few places that did have trees, people flocked to like crazy!
I loved her butterfly wings above!
We were meant to stay for the night parade but Ben knew I was in trouble when I stopped taking photos (a sign that something isn't right with fee). Ben kept pointing out photographic things but I was in another World :p Maybe next year I'll give Woodford another chance but make sure check the weather forecast beforehand :P
On the plus side I did get to watch Darren Hanlon perform and he was awesome as ever!
