On Sunday I was privileged to be a part of an event called Pennyfest2. This was a music and art/craft event that took place at The Vines Bar in Derby. The day was set up in order to raise money for Penny's Fund, find more about the fund  here.

A lot of hardwork went into setting this event up, a great deal of it being done by the lovely Pete Salter and Holly Booth, who also run Hatch'd Magazine (a creative network based in Derby). There was a whole host of amazing bands and artists including Haiku Salut, Josh Happens, My Psychoanalyst and there was also a reunion set by Plans and Apologies. There also some great stalls there including The Cake Ladies, Born Restless, So Boho Vintage and me! And to top it off there was food (including homemade curry!) and drink, truly, what more could you wish for!?

The day was absolutely scorching, and everyone was having a great sweaty time together!

There were some awesome prizes on the tombola, we had our eyes on the tattoo session and the Ukulele, but alas we didn't win. The day was a huge success though and overall made £2000! What a result!


  1. That looks pretty amazing!

  2. It was great, got even better, the photos I took were right near the start when it was still pretty quiet.
