Now the festival summer is over, we’ve been taking a well-earned break. This is by no means the end – we already have lots of ideas for new activities and different events but before we start planning next steps, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve done this summer. So here’s ‘Sex & Bugs & Rock ‘n Roll’ in numbers:
1 – great society to back the idea
2 – science events
3 – music festivals
7 – invitations unfortunately declined due to lack of time
12 – months from the first spark of an idea to choosing ideas for busks and activities.
10 – months to prepare from proposal to the first festival.
14 – days spent at festivals
19 – volunteers working at the festivals
~50 – bumble bees in a colony (approximately)
>5000 happy visitors to our stall!
