As silly as it gets

You will have to bear with me, the photos from here are taken on my phone. Some nice person at Glastonbury decided to pop into the Tee Pee to help themselves to my camera….thanks. The funny thing looking back on the shots i have taken are that the pictures they take on are different from those you take when you consider the frame for a camera. Probably lots of reasons, mostly they normally only see the light of day when shown on the phone that took it and  may explain the following posts.

Anyhow back to as silly as it gets…here is as silly as it gets, Dan decides to base up some boards for work the next day, he’s taken 5 hours to get on site, its midnight, he has one light, a 3 day old roller and the dew is heavy, can he make the deadline?

Glastonbury sideshow report

Months in the making, finally after two weeks install on site the sideshows were ready for the public, The Barking showmen had their costumes, make up and were drunk enough to berate the public, so on first friday of the festival the sideshows opened to huge crowds eager to try their luck on the the unfairest ride in the unfair ground.

All the unfun of the fair, there were steady crowds who lined up to either throw baby doll body parts through the mouths on the gobbler or knock down the heads on the crackheads. The nights rolled on the  barkers got horse, some of the heads were smashed clean of their posts (can’t be a lot of love out there for some of these celebrities)

Over 2000 played during the weekend, dead fish prizes were won by all that played and a lucky few won the star prizes of our limited edition dolls. The rides could not of been done without the fantastic help of our crew, thats Caroline, Ruth, Cy, Finbar, Pete, Lizzy, Ross. Thanks guys you made a great weekend! Crack Heads and Gobbler are now touring sideshows available for all your twisted fairgrounds and festivals, use the contact form for inquiries.
