Twinwood Festival 2013

Hi There

The August bank holiday saw Dead Men's Spex at  The Twinwood Festival in Bedfordshire. It was lovely to see so many of our customers and friends again and we had a busy weekend. In the Twinwood tradition we also had loads of rain; on the Saturday morning the local village of Clapham was flooded and there were three female mallards dabbling around the cars in the High Street!

However, this did not stop the fun, it delayed things a little, but a good wartime spirit prevailed and festival goers kept calm and carried on in their best wellies and brollies. By all accounts the Colonial Club; a large marquee with a stage, tea and stalls, provided a welcome refuge for soggy re enactors.

On the main stage there was some excellent music and Terry Elliot and John Miller entertained us all with their usual witty banter. We particularly enjoyed Kai's Cats and Michael Law's Piccadilly Dance Orchestra.

Luckily by Monday we had glorious sunshine, so I went out and about with the camera.

Thank you to everyone who came to see us.
