Festival faves

August 1 is both an exciting and daunting day on the calendar for those of us involved with Open House Festival. Exciting as we gear up for a month of non stop events, and daunting for the very same reason! 128 events in 40 different venues over 31 days, and that’s not including the extra dates that have been added due to the runaway ticket sales for several of the events. That’s a lot of fun going on around the town, planning and fine tuning in the office and photographs being uploaded to my laptop! In anticipation of a great month, I thought I’d choose a few of my favourite images from the festival programme just to get things going.

Full details and tickets are still available on the festival website and you can pick up a programme from the office at The Fountain Centre on Queen’s Parade, or in many local shops and businesses. For now, these are some of my favourite images showcasing some of the events I’m most excited about.

Do pop back later in the week for a few more of my faves from the first week. And you can keep up to date with all the goings on on the Open House Festival Facebook page, on Twitter and on Instagram.
