Hatherleigh Festival 2006

General stuff

As well as the special pages you can find here, we tried to photograph as many of the events as possible. Some we failed to reach; some were so negative that we just gave up. Below is a flavour of the best things we could find. It's not a definitive list ... but it's the best we could do.

The full 2006 Hatherleigh programme can be found here.

Jay the Clown worked The Square on Saturday. He was very photogenic, but he did not do much so this is the only pic. We've made it larger to make up for the lack of shots.
Seize the Moment was all about youth doing things. There was a variety of happenings all day Saturday in the Town Hall, of which these are just a few.
 
The Square was filled with stalls on Saturday. Here's one of the most atmospheric pictures we managed to get.
This says it all
The Film Show in the Methodist Church was one of the best events as far as we were concerned. It covered Devon as well as Hatherleigh, and this farmer (right) from Dartmoor featured strongly. See some of the farming footage here (it's a 6MB avi file so it may take a while to download. However, it should open easily for you once downloaded) CLICK TO WATCH SAMPLE FOOTAGE OF FARMING IN DEVON IN THE OLD DAYS.
The film included some footage of the hurricane-bashed Church ...
... and of the 1937 Carnival including this poster plus some grainy film of the processions, the frame (moving jerkily) and the tar barrels (static).
