The Free Festival

Held on the day after the end of the year (first Saturday in July). There was a day long festival with music, films, stalls and beer, from lunch time until the police arrived. Then there was a major problem of finding somewhere to sleep and hoping you hadn't spent the train fare home. I think all the photos below were from 1974, which featured Gryphon and Caravan. I believe the festival was held intermittently in the 70's and 80's, depending on somebody conjuring up the money.
