27th September 2013, 1h 27m 54s, 80.7Mb

This is the first Special Report that we have ever made after going to a Faerie Festival. We camped for three days with some lovely people, saw some incredible bands and browsed amongst some really great market stalls. In this show, we are going to try and bring you a taste of that Festival with a few little interviews with some of the guests we met, some of the stall-holders but mostly with an amazing 12 pieces of music! This is going to be a monster show - but we hope you have as much fun listening to it as we had at the festival and get a feel for how much fun these Faerie Festivals are!

We hope you enjoy it!
