Overwhelmingly so, the C E N T E N A R Y F E S T I V A L  turned out to be the monstrously magnificent event it was anticipated to be- the dark clouds lingered, hesitated- then left- to part + be kind to us on this historic occasion. Hundreds of happy faces milled + thrilled their way around the intimately, superbly programmed site; full of puppets, gorillas, ingeniously choreographed temporary shows, insane strolling performers, some s e r i o u sly spectacular live music from around the world- A N D – the bandstand returned!!

We were getting a pedal on for the best part of both days… + it was g l o r i o u s to see little people’s faces b e a m with amazement (+ later pride) at powering this unlikely order of songs (eclectically picked to merge in with the marvellous array of multicultural influences that so joyeously drench the park)- all the way round and through + through this event was a masterpiece! !
