Pack up your suncream and wellies and get ready for the Best of the Festival Reader’s Gallery!
Festival going has become as much of a British pastime as drinking tea or talking football. As the festival season commences we start keeping an extra close eye on the weather. We count our tent pegs and, of course, begin to wonder what we are going to wear! Attending a festival gives us a chance for a bit of self expression. Dressing up is a big part of the great escape into a different world.
We asked you to design some fabulous jewellery to complete your field party outfits. We had some great entries giving a nod to all aspects of festival life – flowers, wellies and rainbows. We even have some rocking pigs appearing in this month’s gallery!
After much deliberation we will be sending Helen Bowen a £10 Beads Unlimited gift voucher. We think her beautifully beaded necklace captured the colour and vibrancy of festival life. We think it would suit any outdoor event.
