The sun came out, the families arrived and team Funk The Family saw their hard work unfold and blossom before their eyes. The one-day family festival in Hove Park, Brighton was a huge success!
We were there, introducing our new rebrand 'The bonnie mob' and explaining that Bonnie baby has grown up and now goes up to age 7! So to get to know all our local fans, we set up a 'TAG YOUR OWN T-SHIRT' tent, and saw some of Brighton and Hove's finest Mini graffiti artists come to paint a fluo T-shirt and join our new mob.
When the mini artists arrived things started to get messy, the Dads got involved, and we had lots more mess! And fun, and colour amazing designs.....and then the crowds appeared and we were sooooo busy....We tagged and fingerprinted, and painted and stencilled from 11.30 right through till 7.30 in the evening!
Here's some of our mini graffiti artists showing off their amazing designs; For those of you who made a masterpiece thank you so much, it was a pleasure meeting so many creative kids and parents. So what about the festival? i just wish i had more time to enjoy it, there was Circus training, Lucy's little forest school, the Outdoors Project, mini silent disco, the Club Tropicana DJ Bar and so much more... check out some great pics like these below from Chris Quigley at http://quigtronik.com/candid/funk-the-family-2015/or from the lovely Helen Farquharson https://www.facebook.com/pages/Helen-Farquharson-Photography https://www.facebook.com/109927025740189/photos
The truth is, the bonnie mob was mobbed!!! Despite wanting to enjoy the festival to its full and report back to you with a full round up of the events, I just didn’t have time, we were painting and tagging from 11.30 till 7.30.
But for a full report through the eyes of Bella, who truly tried and tested the festival, including painting her own Bonnie mob masterpiece! Head over to http://dearmummyblog.com/ for a fantastic festival report
