The sun is shining. There is live music in the festival square. The concrete walkway outside the hall is being decorated in ice cream coloured chalk as children and adults alike write welcome messages. People are chatting, and laughing and hugging as they meet and greet old friends and make new ones. It must be the Catalyst Festival.
Tonight David Devenish is speaking in the main adult meeting, which is sure to be an amazing beginning to the festival. Elsewhere there are events and activities for all ages. A young mother walked past with her ten year old son heading for The Barn – ‘the best place ever’ she said. No doubt he will agree when he sees the array of play activities inside.
So if you’re not here today, why not come tomorrow. And Monday. And even Tuesday. Day tickets are on sale on site. Get in the car, bring your family and friends. And join in the fun.
