Events and Festivals
Community Events & Festivals covered by Paul Edwards, sometimes I am asked to take a few photographs or produced a small video at a local event. If you would like me to turn up at your local event please contact me. I do get very busy and have to be a bit selective, but if I am available I might be able to make it. I would like to point out that my work is totally voluntary, and thats because I enjoy doing what I do.
When I first saw Marjorie and the Potters wheel at the recent EST Donkey Fair, it conjured up images of that scene from the film Ghost, you know the one I mean. So I thought it would be worthwhile showing you how it should be done properly, making clay bowls that is.

At the recent EST Donkey Fair in Abbey Hey, Manchester, I listened to a band that were unusual, at least from what I am used too at some events. So I thought it would be nice to share my experience of Dr Butler's Hatstand Medicine Band in the first of 2 videos. The background noise is something beyond my control, still I hope it does not spoil your enjoyment.
This was a very different event from the usual ones I attend, animals were the centre of attention. The Elisabeth Svendsen Trust for Children and Donkeys in Manchester needs funds and while the event was about raising money, it was also about having lots of fun. In fact I enjoyed it so much I forgot about why I was there, missed most things because I was either with the donkeys or the ferrets. The weather tried to play it's part and spoil the party, but with so much going on that was impossible. It was a well attended event and well organized, the staff obviously had worked very hard putting on such a good show. There was so much going on in such a small space that I can only list what I able to see, sorry if anyone got missed. I did miss the Lord Mayor of Manchester opening the event, I was in with Barn Owl Bill somewhere else at the time, time just passed me by.
This video takes you on a speed journey in under 4 minutes from Velodrome (National Cycling Centre) to Albert Square, this was a partnership between Sky and British Cycling aimed at getting people back on bikes, the event was called Skyride.
