Magic Stones

Here at Festival8, we like to expand our senses. So this year we are offering an unique opportunity to use sight. Starting on Friday painted stones will be hidden around the site. If you look you will see. They may be in the toilet block, on the stage, in the woods, in the restaurant area, in the playhouses, balancing on a post. However, they will not be in any restricted area, or under something, or in a dangerous to get to position. On Saturday we are throwing this open just to the young ones. That's right a giant hide

Gill Hobson

Gill Hobson is an internationally renowned artist who works in glass and light. We are delighted that she has lent us a couple of her delightful sculptures for you to enjoy. Artist Gillian Hobson creates artworks to lose and find yourself in - light and space, time and duration, colour, surface and texture are key aspects of her work.

Tulu Draws

  So this year you may have noticed the lovely stylised artwork we have for Festival 8.  We had help from a great Grimsby based artist and designer, Sonia, a.k.a Tulu Draws.  Do have a look at her work, each piece is lovingly created and I know from talking with her that she is often reluctant to let them go out into the world.  Sonia loves to know that they will be going to good homes, this is art with genuine heart.  Enjoy.     ‘Tulu Draws’ is the alter ego of Lincolnshire illustrator and designer Sonia Whitehead. Sonia fulfilled
