Comedy, Booze and Fags at the FESTIVAL
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

July 12, 2008: The festival got off to a Caribbean sound, produced by the Blackdown Hills Steel Band, the only irony being that the old oil drums have gone up in price! At 9pm the world premiere of “Variety by the moor” performed their special variety of comedy from pantomime horses, to flying knives, IKEA umbrellas mime and mono-cyclists. The Red Cross should have been in attendance in case one of the laughing crowd split their sides. Yet again the residents of Hatherleigh were not daunted by as the crew of Goronwy Thom. As Mat Barnard drank his way through a pint while he juggled knives. Gareth Jones risked suffocation with little encouragement from the audience. Richard Garaghty tried his best to attack Vince Henderson with IKEA umbrellas while he hid in a cupboard box. The juggling turned heads while the Pantomime horse had a treat from Herbie Treehed, shown here. Rob Lee and Michael Grew provided the Live Musical with the help of an apple mac. Great fun was had by all. If you have any pictures of the festival or wish to write a story for HATHERLEIGH.NET please email editor@hatherleigh.net. or drop detail into 41, Bridge Street
