Unintentional Festival 2002 was an event arranged at very short
notice by two local people due to the usual International Festival
taking a year off. It turned out to be very well managed, especially
considering the short time available to organize such an event!
Having attended festivals in other local towns during this and previous
years, I think perhaps Ross-on-Wye should learn from this. Not only
does this type of festival bring business to the town itself, it
provides an opportunity for some of our excellent local artists
to be seen and heard.
Thank you and well done Caz Holbrook, Rachel Bengough for turning
their dream to reality and to John Edwards, Russell Downs and Franki
Griffiths for stage managing, humping equipment and sound engineering
during the weekend finalé.
photographs below are some of hundreds I took during the finalé
weekend. My sincere apologies to Bob's Full House as I stupidly
forgot to bring my camera to your brilliant performance at the Rosswyn
and to the other in town events I was unable to attend due to work
committments. Unfortunately the planned Evening of Clairvoyance
had to be cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Click
