This is not relevant to the general theme,, but in the present circumstances we need stuff to cheer us up,   my favourite phrase is "joyful exuberance"  and I think this Youtube piece has it.   I think it's wonderful but that we could do just as well with one per cent of the paint and a fan brush.   What do you think?

Hi Etain, as of now the festival will be going ahead but as we are all aware it still too early to say If this will change. Naturally we will monitor the situation very closely and inform you the minute any thing changes.

Wondering if the 2020 event will go ahead this year or not I guess, it all depends on the restrictions, just a waiting game now.
