Quintessentially English

3

I randomly stumbled upon the Thriplow Village Daffodil Weekend last month and thought it's worthy of a Locations article.

If it’s a typical English fete you’re after then the Thriplow Village Daffodil Weekend is just the thing for you. For one weekend in March each year, the whole village opens its arms (and gardens, roads, cricket grounds and barns) to visitors interested in buying arts & crafts and of course, daffodils.

Just 7 miles outside of Cambridge, Thriplow is a quaint village and it’s fete offers something for everybody, including:
Heavy horses giving dray rides
Children’s entertainment
May pole dancing
Sheep dogs working
Working smithy
Live birds of prey
Steam traction engine

There are also food stalls, arts & crafts and clothes stalls:

And of course, a country fete isn’t complete without some Morris dancers!

So although it’s been and gone for this year, its worth noting in the diary for next year. :)

    A Salute to the Masters: The Democratic Eye (A Tribute to William Eggleston)

    William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!
