A weekend in Port Eliot

We spent this last weekend on shop duties with Drift at the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall. The amazing Caught By The River crew run a stage and the line up this year included Gwenno, Snapped Ankles and Boy Azooga amongst many other treats. It was a mini Sea Change preview for us... very kind of them!

Our good friend Stephen Parker shot some images of the Caught By The River stage and it's getting us pretty excited about the August Bank Holiday.
