The Cambridge Folk Festival and New Kittens, Cambridge and Suffolk - 1st August 2009

Fresh from 3 days at Latitude, Nosher, Isobel and The Boy™ do a day at the Cambridge Folk Festival, held at Cherry Hinton Hall. All the usual stuff is there, including one of Noddy's somewhat-unplanned visits from Dublin, together with suitably apocalyptic festival weather - a couple of hours' torrential rain which rapidly turns the site into a med-wrestling ring. Isobel and Fred escape back to Caroline's house, leaving Nosher (and Noddy who is roaming around somewhere) to catch a spot of the legendary Hammond B3 player Booker T (off of "Booker T. and the MGs")...
