Rise! In the Mountains

So on the 13th of December 2014 I ventured off to the resort of Les Deux in the French Alps! I'm a final year event management student at Bournemouth University and that means one thing...Dissertation time! instead of following the monotonousness regime of making a questionnaire and asking random people to fill it out, I thought, hey! why not get on a plane and go to a festival that's never happened before on my own! So I did! And what an adventure it was. The cost of the trip kind of swayed me once I had booked it as I had to get a credit card to pay the trip off, although I only decided a month before hand that I actually wanted to go.. Anyway, after a few weeks of preparation, buying ski gear and anxiously awaiting my week a lone in the Alps, the day came! Prior to the trip I had posted on the events Facebook page to see if anyone else was going on their own.. I was in luck! A guy called Nick from California was starting his European tour there and another graduate from Cambridge called Zak whose very into his Trance! We spoke for a few weeks and I met zak at the airport, we flew out together, got to the resort at about 10:30 pm local time, by then a lot of people were in the party mood! However i wanted to sleep, My hotel was wayyyy up a hill, bit of a trek but hey I am in the mountains after all! Anyway, I slept, woke up to go to my first ever snow boarding lesson! which was horrible! horrible horrible horrible. I gave up after the first day. However! Zak, the guy I flew over with introduced me to his room mates who were actually very good at snowboarding and they looked after me all week! More to Follow!

3 days to go until our first Wye Valley River Festival event

3 days and preparations are hotting up! This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate nature, culture, landscape and life along the River Wye. Starting at Hereford on May 3,the Wye Valley River Festival events flow downstream as communities contribute to the lively and thought-provoking programme. The Festival's grand finale is in Chepstow on May 18.The river is rising. Nature is on trial – who will speak for the spirit of the Wye? The Wye Valley River Festival follows the story of Ratty the Wye water vole, leader of the Creatures' Republic of Wye (CROW), who is on the run from predatory prosecutor Mink and Judge Wild Boar. The twists and turns of the chase unfold in a series of community and arts events down the river. Desperate Men are designing this innovative arts event. Ratty is finally captured and brought to trial at a Grand Assizes in Monmouth’s 16th century Shire Hall. The events lead to a spectacular final at Chepstow Bridge with massed choir, fire, flame and illuminations. We have human fountains, tightrope walking over the Wye, Vera the human manipulated vehicle, talks, exhibitions, music perfomances and festivals, fetes, picnics and a whole raft of entertainment. Go onto www.wyevalleyaonb.org.uk to look at our progranmme of events at each city, town and village along the river.

Whats all the NOISE about?

So last year was a roaring success. Peckham had never before seen so many culture vultures in one place. But this year is gonna be insane!! Headline acts this year are sure to blow your mind. From big names in Drum and Bass to some awesome bands and also the very best of comedy from some well known faces. The best part is, every single penny from tickets goes to charity. That's right. This is not a mainstream festival looking to empty your pockets, like so many now in the UK. The Big Noise Festival, genuinely provides the best of a mix of new upcoming and established artists for your entertainment and to benefit THE BIG ISSUE FOUNDATION. No need to bring a tent either. All of this happens under 1 glorious roof at the Bussey Building in Peckham. A unique space designed to host a variety of sick performers for a night of culture, madness, booze, people and Peckham. Here's the deets: 14TH June 2014 - 2pm-4am THE BIG NOISE FESTIVAL CLF Arts Cafe, The Bussey Building, Peckham www.thebignoisefestival.com fb: www.facebook.com/thebignoisefest @thebignoisefest
