The Festival's first flashmob!
That was fun! At 10.45am the final text was sent to the hundreds of people signed up to the BBC Radio 2 Text Club with final instructions for them to head to Stage 1 and to 'bring an instrument'.
At 11am Jon Boden arrived moving through the crowd on a Festival buggy armed with a mischevious grin and a violin. What then ensued was a mass 'sing-a-long' and 'play-a-long' involving Jon leading a 150 strong crowd in some traditional folk tunes. A whole lot of fun for all concerned. Our thanks to Jon for being a true Festival star!
