We were blessed with a wonderful dry weekend, and one of the first things we came across as we walked into the festival village was a skittles alley. Of course, the children had a go. The following day just behind this point was a cricket match of sorts. Umpire in pink tutu and umpires jacket drinking pints, commentator of a hilarious kind, pimms being served along with cucumber sandwiches! I think cricket would have much more of a following if it was like this more frequently!!
We then came across various stories explained to us by one of the brothers Grimm. Here the wicked witch was trying to entice us with an apple.
Here was a story about seven brothers turned into ravens, and the children had to play instruments to try and make the ravens arrive. This was their sister calling for them, very eery!
And really brought the stories to life for us all. I loved how books were used as decorations too.
There was a childrens circus skills tent, where Alec was getting rather good!
And stilts, which we all tried and failed at miserably!
And Ethan got in on the act too.
A wonderfully, wonder-full, wacky and whimsical weekend. Definitely to be repeated next year!!
