Sunday 7th August saw The Apple Cart Festival a day which did not promise to be blessed with good weather but still along with a sizable crowd turned out braving the elements for what was all in all a brilliant festival, this not the opinion of a discerning festival goer as it was our first one day festival of the sort and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, not knowing what to expect we arrived sometime after the heaviest deluge of the day to the tail end of what could be described as brilliant festival our focus was predominantly the live music and the Visual Art. We enter to find a full scale fun fair a large blue canopy to the right and brilliant array of food sellers ahead from Venn Street Market situated next to a Bar, so far the layout of this festival promises to be an enjoyable event. Of the Venn Street traders I found myself drawn to the Taco Truck a wonderfully quaint red mini van of sorts converted on to a mobile kitchen fabulously decorated in an eclectic mix mid century pin ups and kitsch imagery in a collaged wallpaper, creating an original aesthetic which really adds to the sense of occasion all to receive a free range chicken soft taco of generous size which actually impressed me considering I’m a big fan of Taco's and burrito's.
We then headed over to the main stage where Tim Minchin was at the piano thrashing out a comedic number, on our way to the main stage the path somewhat led us through the Art Car Boot Sale a concept that we are all for here at Creative Happen. Although the number of seller’s had not been what was expected having recently been to the Vauxhall Art car Boot Sale. We were pleased with the weir’s that were available The Renegade Potter happen to be one of them. The fact Visual Art was present and available to the festival goers totally sat in line with our views on art, availability and accessibility to us the platform of Visual Art at the Festival is a new and exciting format it must be stressed for the avid festival goers we at Creative Happen are new to the wonders of festivals and festival life.
