Our theme and message we had planned for 2020 was

“2020 sees the amazing theme of ONE WORLD chosen by our very own Kellie Driscoll and winning the vote for its relevance and popularity in that it can be expressed in so many ways and it is also so very relevant in today’s climate where we need to come together more than ever to create a amazing world where we embrace varying cultures, celebrations, encourage all to look after our amazing planet and honour all those that exist therein and herein” 

( THs text was originally written in Feb 2020!!- how apt it still in 2021 great vision team)  

There is no prerequisite to either paint ( public liability insurance)  or model we are a fully inclusive festival that brings together artists from all genres and walks of life to celebrate art in its living form,

we have also decided this year to open up our marquee to more diverse forms of art forms within the face and body painting community and would invite you to contact us to book a place to display your arts.

The weekend included free camping if required, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have,

We look forward to sharing our art with you all,
