Let’s be honest, no festival is complete without an Arts and Craft area! Bring out the primary school truant in yourself and head on over here and jazz up your wellies with gems, buttons, PVA glue and glitter! Create a beautiful bedazzling love letter to your cherished one, create a giant clay penis, make a mask or even just upcycle a wooden stick into a mythical staff and act out your favourite Game of Thrones Scene. Fuck Winter though. The only thing coming is gonna be you in your pants after all the fun you’ll be having at this table!!
