The Green Scythe Fair 2018

Yesterday we went to the Green Scythe Fair at Mulcheney, in Somerset.  It is an annual event which is as”green” as possible with power from solar panels or stationary bikes, compost loos, lots of recycling and no mains electricity on site.

There are various stalls all round the arena which is where the scything competitions take place.  But no Ross Poldark here, they all kept their shirts on inspite of the warm weather.

This is what greeted us at the entrance, wicker figures.

There were lots of stalls selling food, some vegan, some veggie and some not.  Neil and I shared a pizza.

Dancers formed a circle and danced along to music from a group of musicians.  People were dressed up and lots of children had their faces painted.

Another group of musicians, this time dressed as pirates, were performing on a stage and whilst we were there, played a raucous version of “Riding on a Donkey”.

At a green crafts area our friend Emma was teaching basket weaving.

The fair was finishing with a ceilidh in the evening , although we didn’t stay for that.

We were lucky with the weather and it made a very enjoyable day out.
