Meanwhile, back up at the Lost Eden, the hedges were getting increasingly bolshy. A scan through festival literature reveals these three to be: "Daisy, Launa and Mo, our glamorous 1950s housewives in sunny suburbia, who enjoy nothing more than a bit of baking and a quiet spot of gardening on a Sunday afternoon”. They ambled through the Eden for several hours, spooking some passers-by, and handily reminding others to fix the Flymo when they got home.
And now, with the tenth anniversary over, Andy and Ben and everyone on the team would like to take this moment to say a very special thanks.
“From that first tent-pole climbing high-wire act at Abbot Hall Park in Kendal a decade ago, we never believed it would turn into what it has. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to every single person who has, by coming or contributing, made this festival with us.”
See you in the fields for another ten years.
