Newcastle Community Green Festival And Our Farm

The Newcastle Community Green Festival has been part of my life for years now, I always look forward to it.  It started in 1995 and in 1998 took on life as a two day festival of music, food and environmental and ethical activities and chatter in the beautiful Leazes Park.

We headed out today and the heavens opened, man it poured, but hey this is the North’s Glasto and mud is the order of the day!  Before we left we visited the Farm at the top of the street, I guess this photo should have warned of the shape of things to come!

So, not letting rain stop us (we’re a resilient wee family) off we went!

Not many pics owing to the weather, but these give a flavour!

  1. Oh this looks like good fun. I have rather enjoyed the rain recently- at least it’s not been too cold! I love the paintings on the door of the yurt.

  2. I totally agree that rain should not stop play! In fact, a good downpour is what gets my kids most excited to go out! Weirdos ;) It may stress me out, but so may extra opportunities for learning.

  3. It’s always good to get outdoors whatever the weather. Sometimes it is a little too soggy though although I’m glad you’re spirits weren’t dampened. The yurt looks great and that piggy looks very comfy! Great photos thank you for sharing with #whatsthestory
