Alternative Village Fete
Yesterday, outside the National Theatre, under the shelter of a Tee Pee I was showing children and adults how to make traditional windmills and origami windmill pin badges. This event brings together a selection of artists that offer whimsical creations to buy or make, performances from another era or food you may not have tasted before.
Unfortunately, because I was so busy, I didn't get to see much. Although I did manage to peep my head out once and see some dancers performing the jitter bug. Thanks to my mother I know a lot of the music from that era, so at one point I was singing and jigging along to the sounds on offer. Surprisingly, no-one batted an eye (not that it would have stopped me anyway)
