We are buzzing and full of ideas for the festival that is to take place on November 16. 17. & 18th 2018. Joy!

Be your own Christmas tree

The wonderful Finnish performance artist Pilvi Porkola sent out an invitation to artists to create a performance for Christmas. And who can resist becoming a Christmas tree? The audience was limited – my 19 year old son and the flora and fauna of our Cyprus beach home… but the feeling was great and the baubles very sparkly.

With this little image I hope that 2017 will be more playful, loving, silly, magical, sunny and inspiring for all who embrace it.

Happy New Year.
