A couple of weeks ago, sipping douglas-fir-rimmed G&Ts, we watched the sun set on yet another festival season.
Pumpkins, apples and mirrorballs adorned the Hawarden Estate. Dogs cocked their heads confusedly at Chris Watson’s dolphin recordings. Stealing Sheep fired confetti cannons into the audience – and the bookshop.
We’re chuffed to have had such a warm welcome back to The Good Life Experience. Our thanks go to founders Charlie, Caroline, Steve and Cerys; Stealing Sheep, The Magnetic North, Modern Studies, July Skies, Hooton Tennis Club, Aldous Harding, Huw Evans, Laura Cannell, Ian Rawes, Laura Barton, Rhys Mwyn, David Wrench, Georgia Ruth, the Flint Male Voice Choir, Britain, John Lewis-Stempel, Amy Liptrot, James MacDonald Lockhart, Will Burns, Martha Sprackland, John Clegg, Sophie McKeand, Chris Watson, Kate Carr, Rob Penn, Jeff Towns, Ceri Murphy, The Dubwood Allstars, John Andrews, Danny Mitchell and everyone else involved in the running of our stage; all who watched and listened; all who perused the shop, etc. We can’t imagine a better way to have ended the summer.
