TALKIN BOUT MY GENERATION
Were you a teenager in March during the 1960s 70s or 80s? Did you go to gigs at Marcam Hall, shimmy at Slacks or pogo in the pubs? We will be on hand to hear your musical memories. Listen to some of your favourite songs in our listening booths, browse the selection of retro clothes and peruse the memorabilia, or bring some of you own to show.
ART JOURNALING TENT
Have a go at art journaling. Join our resident artist Marian Savill who has been running the 100 Journals Project. Marian will give you lots of hints and tips to get you started.
POET IN A PANIC
Have you got someone special in your life? Would you like to give them a truly unique gift? Step up to our VW van and meet our resident poet John Spencer. Tell John a bit about the person whom you’d like to gift a poem, give him 30 minutes to work his magic, then come back and collect your beautifully prepared poem.
