Summer’s End

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!

Back in the Saddle

The 2013 festival season isn’t over yet but we’re already organising our return to the lovely Wychwood Festival for their 10th anniversary!

The dates are confirmed for 30th May – 1st June 2014 and early bird tickets have just gone on sale. 

We’re all very excited to be going back and we’re looking forward to developing new, fun ecology activities. So if you’re looking for a mellow, family-friendly festival with clean loos, short queues, good music and loads of activities, come and join us on Cheltenham Racecourse!
