Arundel Festival Sunday, Our Gorgeous Grandchild and Antiques

Arundel Festival

The second day started with rain and
 it wasn't looking too promising.

Once it cleared the crowds began to come into Arundel.

My first stop was to see Lee Payne outside the Institute.

Mr. Cool was interrupted by the local bobby........

I'm liking those tartan boots.

 this ventriloquist was fantastic.......
 the audience enthralled.....

the great thing about the Arundel Festival is you
 never quite know what or who you will find around the next corner.

my mates from Slimming World on their stand in Mill Road.

 singing in Tarrant Street........

 an artist capturing the scene.......

 Music in Jubilee Gardens........

Jenny Lock the artist has been in with us 6 years.......
we love both her and her work.....

 Ian from Antiquities in Tarrant no it's not street theatre
 ...he's just watering all the hanging baskets.....

 Artist Abby Wilkinson working on the Queen Victoria mural on the Institute wall.

 early evening outside The Eagle pub in Tarrant Street.

Well, its hammering down this morning 
so I'm not expecting a mad rush today.

The Festival is on all week.

The culmination of it all this weekend which is a Bank Holiday.
Weather permitting the town will be heaving
 and rocking to all the music.

I  look forward to our mates 
Screamin Lez and the Mindbenders
 who are always
 the top of the bill on the last day.

It's  a joy to photograph them.

Here's the link to find out whats on and where

We have a Tombola planned for the weekend.
It's in aid of
The Chestnut Tree
 Children's Hospice.

If you have anything you could donate
 please drop it down to us.
We are open all week.

Bottle of soap...unwanted gifts..

This was one of my favourite moments from the festival so far

The magician outside The Kings Arms on Tarrant Street.

with his trusty assistant.....

and the little dog watching from the stalls over the road......

ha ha...great moment hey?

With all these children enjoying
 the festival its made us miss
our grandchild so very much.

Our lovely son lives in the US
 and we haven't even met our gorgeous girl yet...... 

I know I'm going to be biased...but she IS really beautiful isn't she?
Lets hope it will be very soon......

Here's a taste of what we do.
Our antiques warehouse is hidden away behind Arundel Co-op.

Just walk down the alley next to William Hill and turn left.
