I had a bit of adventure this weekend in Heaten Park Manchester, I would have to say my favourite kind of adventure would generally include free ice-cream and great live music, this ticked both those boxes. Hosted by the very Fair and Lovely Ben and Jerry, they and their team were clearly very serious in their mission for everyone to extract as much fun out of the day as possible! If You want to check out my Dita Von Teese inspired festival outfit go ahead! With free vintage fairground rides and a chance to try all the Ben and Jerrys flavours in exsistence I tried four ice-cream flavours yesterday and I lost count of the previous day, it amazing how you think you just can't eat another mouth full then hit your stride! I watched a giant macadamia nut hitch a ride with a toddler! Exhilarating music by Gary Numan, Sound of Rum, Fun Loving Criminals, Steve Cradock and Ocean Colour Scene and Duke and King. Maximo Park has to win the the prize for most stylish lead singer, with his black bowler.
Fun Loving Weekend With Ben and Jerry
Toe wrestling was on offer and for some reason there were many french men dotted about wearing strings of onions and of course many dairy cows! The chill out tent was complete with bales of straw, deck chairs to lounge on and coconut boules in the sand and the witty option of hand decorating your own cow shaped biscuits to take home.Ben and Jerrys live their values, they deffinately gave back to the UK, with tickets priced and at just £17.00 each and free admission for children under 12 and free ice-cream and activities. It was a great way to share their fairtrade message, I can't wait till next year!
Can you spot the macadamia nut??
