This has to be seen to be believed. It would appear that the festival organisers don't want geese on the river during the festival . So every day this boat chased them down towards the weir with a lady in the bow holding up a stuffed dog to frighten them. Eventually when reaching the weir they all went over and down the other side.But over the following few hours they all came back up again . Still it was good fun to watch.
At the festival on Sunday we were treated to a performance by the Stratford to Stratford theatre company. We had spoken to a few of the performers a couple of days ago and they explained to us that they had come from Stratford in London to Stratford upon Avon in a narrowboat and had learnt A midsummer nights dream on the way up. We promised them that we would come and watch them and we were glad that we did. Their performance was brilliant with some great acting. A most enjoyable experience.
Music time at the bandstand with some very good performances (we even had a little dance) . They also had an Acoustic stage as well… There was so much going on at the festival and it was such a change for us to do something like this , but we absolutely loved it.
I would have loved to get my hands on one of these,but they wouldn't let me have a go. Although they did put on a couple of displays on the river which was fun as they kept getting hit by other boats.
We ended the last day of the festival with good old Fish and Chips. We have been a bit spoilt with all the food here and have had some lovely Spit roast Pork, Thai food ,Pizza’s, Wraps and Burgers, Oh! and a
large small amount of alcohol… Time for a diet me thinks…
