On this day...Wilfred Owen killed in action.

On this day, November 4th in 1918, poet Wilfred Owen was killed in action during WW1 on the Western Front, just one week before armistice was declared. He was shot by a German machine-gun during the attempt by the British to bridge the Sambre Canal near Ors.

His war poems which are a lasting reminder of the futility of war have led to him becoming on of the greatest English poets of the 20th century and beyond.

Festival at the Edge 2014

Well, it seems like no sooner we are setting up, then its time to pack away for another year – that is the way with Festival at the Edge! This year’s event was brilliant, we sold lots of things and saw some great acts, especially ‘Blackbeard’s Tea Party’ who we will endeavour to see again very soon. Friday when we arrived on site was sunny, hot and busy followed by a lovely, balmy evening. When we got back to the tent after seeing the band, we wondered if it was lightening or camera flashes we could see…it was lightening, followed by thunder and tremendous rain – a long and slightly worrying night under canvass! Saturday was a mix of thunder storms and brighter spells during which people ventured outside luckily, we managed to keep the books dry (ish) and the evening was fine as was all of Sunday which made up our trading time somewhat!
Memories of lovely people, great music, fab storytelling, epic breakfast baps and stormy weather will carry us through until next time.

What will the weather do?

Well, it is the great Festival at the Edge at Much Wenlock this weekend coming, but what can we expect from the weather this year? I have heard all kinds of reports from 'not too bad' to thunder and lightening (great in a tent)...so I guess its a case of wait and see! Whatever the weather it is a brilliant event, photos and report to come soon!

Rehome a hardback!

We have lots of great hardbacks to take to Festival at the Edge - but they weigh so much! Hopefully they will sell, all will be 50p and need re-homing (so we don't have to lug them back again :)).
