Such a wonderful day in Ulverston! Perfect weather, great turn out and a town filled with music, comedy and creativity. I spent the morning in the company of some lovely crafters in the Market St Pop Up Shop, creating an art piece on the window.
The design was loosely based on my 'In the shadow of the Hoad' illustration but swapped some buildings for those that were involved in the festival. Venues such as Natterjacks, The Little Kings Head, Hope and Anchor, The Sun and Amigos. Also, Laurel and Hardy posing near the Hoad and performers at the Market Cross.
After finishing, I popped down to see the fantastic Freya Green on the another fine stage and then spent the rest of the afternoon at The Little Kings Head. Never been in this pub before and what a lovely find! Great atmosphere in their brand new beer garden and a continuous stream of talented acoustic acts - the young David Kay in particular.
Big thanks to Dave, Sophie and the rest of the organisers who put together a local festival to be proud of. Same again next year please!
