Here we go again

And their OFF! in a fleet of dodgy vans,  and sketchy trailers the Unfairground takes its summer pitch down on Worthy Farm. It’s ok we’re expected. A few of us are going. You’ve seen the film! We don’t read books! NOW see the Tee shirt. Thanks to Jakey for being a model .

Glastonbury report 2011

old_boney_sun

So back in the land of the toilet, a land far far away from the long drop loo. Muddy dirty and tired with a million things to do before i fly to Norway friday.
Much rain made the going underfoot swampy during the build but thankfully the weather cleared and the sun baked the mud into 2 foot waves by the time the festival started. The unfairground is a late night spot with stuff happening in the field starting at midnight. the sideshows were rammed and Old Boney proved a great hit, if you excuse the pun.

We had over 700 customers test their strength, but to be fair its hard to give it your best shot, off your tits at 4am in the morning in a muddy field. We had about 50 really strong guys who managed against the odds to ring the bell each of them receiving a original and unique art work for their efforts.

As you can see there were plenty of girls who attempted to ring the bell, hats off to them, it was a long way up! Thanks to all those who had a go, and congratulations to those truly strong folk who rang the bell.

Old Boney (under construction)

Well i have been banging on and on about this unfairground stricker for some time without revealing much about how it will look. Construction’s going well and at last i have something to show you.
This is just the top section, the whole thing stands over 6 meters tall, successful rings on the bell get Dotmaster prizes, original works, hand made voodoo dolls and some other surprizes. Its bloody big and bloody hard to win so its fits right in at the Unfairground at this years Glastonbury.

Now thats what i call a bloody hammer

The best buy of the year for me (i know it’s sad but…) Large 1.1m 6KG rubber paving hammer for the Old Boney stricker for the unfairground at Glastonbury 2011 (shoe added for scale). If your there check it out, going to be dead silly, great fun, super prizes and only £1 a go. Roll up, Roll up. can’t wait to see a load of sad lost its trying to swing a bloody great mallet.

Old Boney being the new attraction at the unfairground for this years Glastonbury festival. The festival looms and time is short. Were a man down in the last 20 minutes of the game and the workers are loaded.

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?
