Secret Garden Party...

The Saturday spectacle !!

...is not such a secret anymore- but still so much fun!!! Every year they have a different theme and for 2015 it was Childish Things. The weather wasn't on our side for most of it but who cares when there are fireworks, paint parties, great music and lights falling from the sky!?

I really really enjoyed dancing away to Caravan Palace and the other ska/swing bands they had there, and I think I've discovered my new favourite type of music. It was really fun tryna find all of the stages and hidden art installations around the site which included a shrine to childhood, giant plasters over trees and a mahoooosive swing. I love the mixture of art and music- you could draw and screen print but also get drunk and dance. There were sciencey talks in one tent and a pub quiz in the next. All in the same place. I guess trying to explain how fun it was is hard because you had to be there, but I know if I was ever going to plan a festival/humungous party it would be like this. 

Quite a photo heavy post so I added the read more for those who wish to see the rest!

Thanks to the people who put this together every year. I never thought I would have so much fun whilst covered in mud, paint and glitter.
