Day three at Patchings – with added sunshine!

Today the weather was lovely and people came out in droves.  Dad came in with us, which meant that we could all go for a proper look round the Festival.

The marquees in sunshine

Each year there are a number of painters demonstrating and talking about their art, at various sites around the Festival.

The World Owl Trust have also come along for the last few years, and this year are giving talks on the work they do – greatly enhanced by the prescence of this beautiful Barn Owl.

Isn't it lovely?

The blacksmith always draws a crowd, and it’s fascinating to see him at work.

There’s also been live music each day, with today being the Carlton Brass Band followed by a folk duo (I didn’t catch their name)

They were great

If you’re thinking of visiting tomorrow is the last day.  It’s a really great show this year, with exhibitors such as Wongsam Design, Wendy Darker, Tracy Whinray, Sheila Gill, Sky Blue Designs, Minimal Marzipan, PennyDog Jewellery, Glyn Matthews, David Bellamy and Jenny Keal, Just Soaps, Kerry Richardson, Daisy Designs, Derwent, and Fizgig to name just a few.

I’ll be sorry to see the event end, I’ve been having a wonderful time!
