Fairport at Compton Verney!
As part of Compton Verney's celebration, we were been asked to help break the world record for the longest festive bunting string. So this afternoon, we dropped in and we did!
All five of us (plus our festival and touring teams including Roxy!) have hand-crafting pennants which will be incorporated in a seven-mile length of bunting.
In August, we'll be inviting everyone at Cropredy to contribute to the bunting world record too. A team from Compton Verney will have a stall at the festival where you can individually decorate bunting pennants. There'll be craft materials - pencils, crayons and paints - supplied for you to use. We'll also be cajoling musicians from this year's line-up to have a go. More...
