The Abergavenny Food Festival’s annual market hall decorations are eagerly anticipated and give real pleasure to thousands of people – visitors and locals alike – for a whole year.
Bettina Reeves and Susan McComb and the Arts Alive team are busy right now conjuring up this year’s decorations. For 2012 the focus is on ‘Leaping Hares and Gorgeous Game Birds’. Think fabulous iridescent plumage and sleek lines. These beautiful creatures will be unveiled on Thursday 13 September at the Festival’s annual Fanfare Supper. We couldn’t resist showing you some workshop pics of work in progress.It will give you an idea of the sheer scale of these pieces and the expertise involved in their creation.
