Festive Faces Campaign

Show some love towards a brilliant festival in Aylesbury. You can help by sponsoring their campaign. Sponsor them for each Festive Face they manage to capture by Christmas Eve using the magic of a local pro portrait photographer.

Follow their progress online at dannyhigginsphotography/festivefaces where you can see all the Festive Faces they have so far

But best of all check out the Festival itself!

Highlights of Chaos 2011

I have now attended 4 or 5 Chaos Weekends and I helped in the Peace Tent again this year. I think the Peace tent offered those attending Chaos Weekend, somewhere fun and different to hang out for a few hours. Some people never leave! This year it became the only tent running after the weather meant the Greenman tent was closed for everyone's safety. Greenman MCC have always promoted the ‘all are welcome’ party ethos and actively encouraged us to rosta live bands, storytellers and comedians that would not usually play a more traditional motorcycle festival. Every year we have tried to give them something different and this year we did 'em proud! Here are five of my favourite moments from the Peace Tent last:’

1)   Playing my trombone alongside DJ Sephira (Jersey’s MerKaba Tribe)

2)   Meeting the Rat-bikers, who had ridden all the way from Spain.  Playing Gypsy Techno for some of their Ibérico Ham.

3)   Having a dance off with James Le Huray from Tonight The Skies and trying to lip-read Hollie during their set!

4)   The Inevitable Pinhole Burns’ storming set

5)   Kieran Smale’s Big Smiles and Brilliant Tunes

Physical reaction to a Visual stimulus

Occasionally I see a photograph or in this case a video that makes me itch and fidget in my seat. 

the Synesthesia video I can feel the food textures and smell the burning pages in the toaster and below the bare feet on the cool stone and the lush grass makes me gasp!

Peace Tent on Tour - a Warm up for Chaos 2011

Another bit of news from the Peace Tent facebook group

We have looked into the future can see that a Peace Tent shaped wormhole is going to open in the Fountain Street area @ approx 7pm on 25th June.

Expected consequences from this event are difficult to predict but may very well take the form of throwback 90's DJ and compere for the evening Dave Miller along with Lydia Pugh, Rob Hunter playing melodic awesomeness and Claire Thomas entertaining you with spoken word groovyness.

Downstairs PsyLobster and Alex Psymons will be Shpongling along in an exceptionally quiet and mellow way (seriously!) early on to give the guys upstairs some time to enjoy themselves but then moving into full on psychedelic attack formation from 10pm

Expect the night to start mellow and descend into full on Chaos!

The usual coffee, toasties, stretchiness and UV are all expected to survive the trip.

Space invaders and aliens welcome.

The guys from the Greenman will be there too with Chaos Weekend tickets, will be your last chance to get them at the bargain advance price of £15
