Event Report – The Diogenes Mini-Festival

At Diogenes we love a party, and last weekend we set a new high when we had our first ever ‘Mini-Festival’.  The whole weekend was filled with activities and entertainment, which kept everyone busy.  For the children, there was face painting, hair braiding and art.  The adults meanwhile enjoyed yoga, life drawing, Nordic walking and a range of sports.  Sunday evening saw a campfire sing along, where everyone chilled round a roaring fire whilst doing justice to a range of classic songs (though our ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ probably scared the birds away!).  This was followed by music till late back in the house.

The highlight of the weekend, however, was a live performance from Billy Bottle and Martine, who had previously appeared on ‘ The Voice’ on BBC1.  They raised the roof with their unique take on a great selection of music and had the assembled crowd rocking the night away until late with their uplifting set.  In fact several present were a bit hoarse on Sunday morning from cheering!

Another high point was the reopening of our outdoor pool, following an extensive refurbishment and upgrade.  The covers were wound back to reveal the sparkling clear water beneath, along with  the beautiful new tiling, and within minutes the pool was filled with swimmers and the laughter of the children in their dinghy filled the air.

This was a truly special weekend and was enjoyed by all, including the many visitors who came from across the country to join us.  If you missed out this time, then we are already planning next year’s event, so watch this space!

In the meantime, don’t forget our skinny dip for women this coming Saturday (June 4th).  If the weather allows, the outdoor pool will be available, but there’s also our lovely indoor pool as well!  Book tickets at http://bit.ly/1OsNazR
