A pretty intense day – worth going early and standing towards the front of the route if you’re prioritising the procession over ‘other’ activities. Also worth wandering to enjoy the full range of food and music too.
Strange but beautiful. Again, I was incredibly lucky with the sunshine, but the range of musical, theatrical, literary, and gastronomic events means a gorgeous weekend whatever the weather.
A great day for anyone who loves the value and camaraderie of music festivals, but who doesn’t want to deal with camping / bad food / culture of ‘overindulgence’.
