Fuse Festival














Oh what a gift of a weekend... three days of wall to wall to sunshine, music and much much more. We had a hectic but lovely time volunteering, catching bits of bands and meeting up with friends. Here's a little peek of our local free festival. 























A feast of music to dip in and out of... whatever your taste.
















































































































Young and not so young talent


getting everyone in the mood.



On Sunday morning I headed off to see a Gospel choir at the main stage where there was a church service. I was delighted and moved to see such a large congregation. 














































Iced coffee with Baileys... yes please. I love Sundays at festivals.




















































































































































Fuse is a family friendly festival with plenty of activities for children. This is part of a local street scene drawn along one side of the Art and Craft tent.




















Fuse's finale was The Fuse Community Choir - six schools plus our group. Each group had only rehearsed in isolation so we were all very excited to hear ourselves together. OK... and a little nervous too.

I think we were a success... and Fuse 2013 was too, thanks to all the hours put in by the many hard working volunteers. And hello if I saw you there.

  6. This sounds wonderful, it really does. And you had such beautiful weather. Your photos really capture the feel of the festival and the summer sun. I especially love that shot of the flowers and ropes. x
