As Paige says: ….we needContinue reading “Expansion – seeing brilliance through the cracks”

Larmer Tree 2015 – it was fun as always!
I know it’s a cliche, but I can’t believe that a week ago I was sat in The Arc waiting for SnowApple having just had a lot of fun watching Rughu Dixit on the main stage. We were SO lucky with the weather…. It rained a little on our first day so my festivalContinue reading “Larmer Tree 2015 – it was fun as always!”
