A fantastic time was had by all on Saturday at Southwark's Feast on the Bridge- it just seems to get busier and better every year! The sun was shining, and the atmosphere was fantastic- it was all very relaxed and family friendly, even with the addition of the FISHY FLASHER.
This year there was a sustainable fishing theme to the Feast on the Bridge so we did our bit to add a fishy twist to our headgear. The edible salad hats were joined by papier mache Fish Heads, flowerpot sushi fascinators, carved carrot fish hanging in Fairground bags, a roaming Fishy Flasher with inbuilt fish quiz, and a head-born Fishing for Compliments.
We were lucky enough to be next to Crayfish Bob who was dolling out free Thames crayfish (apparently an invasive species) to the masses and Tim Mitchell with his brilliant cardboard underwater studio. Opposite us people were busy milling flour with the aid of a hairdryer, there was never a dull moment!
Even the hurricane managed to behave itself, only making Fishing for Compliments a little bit more challenging...
We had an incredible crew of artists and supporters to help spread the word so what more can we say but a huge thanks to everyone who got involved. And last but not least, congratulations to the public who were the real stars of the show- watch this space...more photos coming shortly!
