Art Couture Painswick Festival 2014


I had never been to this event before, but lept at the chance to perform there after seeing the main website and video! I was certainly not disappointed. All around the church, nearby streets and in the fabulously Gothic churchyard, there was a feast for the eyes. From bands to costumes, craft stalls to body art, I was in heaven!!!

I performed on Friday Street first after listening to a wonderful duo called Bear and Kitten. Such pure, sweet voices with a piano and guitar. I could curled up in a ball and fallen asleep to their innocent tones. From this little stage I had a wonderful view of passers by and people stopping an the stalls. I found that I had to stop myself from laughing from time to time as there were so many dogs silently greeting each other, whilst the crowds wandered too and fro. I imagined the dogs tipping their hats to each other as they sauntered on…I know, it was rather hot…

Next I got changed into my half and half costume! I was debuting the outfit at the show and it was a raging success! People kept telling me I needed to get on the stage for the competition, but I had to tell them I was a singer, not part of the catwalk! Just the confidence boost I needed! I hung around in the performers area to get some snaps of some of the amazing body art before we had to go. It really was spellbinding as you can see!
