PillowTalk: Catch of the Day
“I think everyone secretly loves the idea of finding a message in a bottle. Now is your chance!”
- Festival Director.
Why not take a stroll down to the big lake in front of the big house? There might just be a surprise waiting there for you. Meet a fisherman-captain-raconteur-extraordinaire, and listen to his larger-than-life tales and yarns. Floating on the lake in a rickety old row boat, he’ll lure you in with stories of voyages past, and invite you to stay for the coloured bottles which dance on the water, and the stories and adventures which lie within them. Pick yourself up a fishing rod and see if you can take home your very own catch of the day, a unique, hand-crafted, message in a bottle.
Lake in the Meadow @ 12.00 – 5.00 Every Day
