The Shakesbeer Festival, Star Wing Brewery, Redgrave, Suffolk - 13th July 2019

It's the second "Shakesbeer" festival at Star Wing Brewery on the edge of Redgrave, deep in the Suffolk countryside. As the name suggests, it's a mash-up of beer festival with music and outdoor theatrical performances of Shakespeare - this year featuring Twelfth Night. We camp over in the van so we can make the most of the twenty or so beers on plus the evening entertainment from Mick the Baker's band, with former The BBs guitarist Rob on duty.

Crowds mingle around in the sun

There's some funky jazz on

Pouring a pint

Jimmy talks to someone

There's a product demo of electric motorbikes

One of the food vans seems popular

People head off to the amphitheatre

The actors are in some sort of pre-amble

The house band is pretty good

The audience assembles

Some acting occurs

The cast take some applause at the end of the play

An accidental long exposure has the cast being beamed off into space

Rob's on guitar

The sax player roams around

Mick gets up to Rob's guitar

The crowd is loving it

The sax player returns from a tour of the audience

Mick the Baker on backing Spanish guitar

Mick has a laff

The sax dude plays two horns at once

More crowd adulation

Fred is absorbed by the band as Isobel dances around

One of the actors gives some adulation

Outside, there's an empty tent doing nothing

The next morning, Isobel sits in a camp chair

The van in a Star Wing field

There's a collection of gravestones leaning on the church wall

Redgrave church of St. Mary's

Isobel walks back with bacon sarnies

Fred legs it back from the tap room
