Good Evening everyone. Here as promised are some of images from The Village Pump Folk Festival we attended last weekend over at Westbury.
This is an entirely voluntary led and managed event and not in receipt of any public funding or investment. If you are interested in learning more then please do pop over and visit http://www.villagepumpfolkfestival.co.uk or http://www.villagepumpfolkfestival.co.uk/blog
I really hope that you all enjoy viewing the images I captured over the four days and that they might give you all an idea of the work which goes into this brilliantly organised and truly family friendly event.
The rain unfortunately did pay us a visit a couple of times; but this in no way dampened the mood. Especially as there was an extremely well stocked bar and club room which opened until the early hours.
To be fair there were far too many superb entertainers and bands in this year’s lineup to even begin to mention so I will just say that we were not disappointed in any way shape or form.
The food traders who attended were ‘almost’ all incredibly good value for money and offered a wide variety of very filling hot tasty meals through the evening.
But I must not forget to acknowledge also, all of the unsung volunteers and background workers who gave up their time. Also to the security staff who were all very friendly professional and accommodating towards everyone present.
In fact everybody from John Alderslade the Festival Director through to each individual person on site who contributed in whatever manner to the smooth running of this festival deserves a large pat on the back. Excellent!
Finally though it would be remiss of me not to give a little mention to the wonderful team I met consisting of the beautiful Gemma, the delightfully sweet Maisy, the main man John; and not forgetting of course Daisy!
I met these lovely people and managed to persuade Gemma initially to allow me to take her photograph because she had a such a gorgeous smile. Although I think it was the catchy little slogan which was chalked on a blackboard outside their trailer which initially caught my eye. (That’s my excuse anyway; and i’m sticking to it)
This read as follows: “Come get a Pizza da action!”
That though my friends is all that I am saying?
But seriously it was a fantastic four days and I am already looking forward to next year.
MORE GOOD TIMES * GOOD MUSIC * GOOD COMPANY
