Set in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, just over the valley from The Basket Room HQ was a feast of food, rides & sunshine. The last weekend in August saw flocks of people fill Alex James' farm for a slice of festival life with Jamie Oliver, Dizzie Rascal & Alex's famous cheese. It was The Basket Room's debut at the festival and one of great fun, delicious pork & making new friends.
We love meeting new folk and were lucky enough to be sandwiched between Wool and The Gang and Sweet Lime. We shared cider runs, made jersey fish tail bracelets (above left) and spent all our money on each others wares! The helter skelter took us back to childhood, and yes we did have a slide...I think we were more terrified of the height than the little kids were! We danced too, to Dizzie Rascal.
If you were lucky enough to be at the festival, you may well have entered our competition....well, we've drawn the winners and have three lucky people who will be receiving some new woven wonders!
BIKE BASKET WINNER is Paige Bessa...congrats! A boho chic bag goes to Lesley Lainsbury and last but not least JUSTINE BARKER you've won a large sisal basket!
Thanks all for a great Summer season, we hope to see you at one of Autumn events, find our tour dates here.
