Stratford River Festival July 2019

Stratford River Festival July 2019

GAGA takes a stand at the Stratford River Festival 2019

The first weekend of July sees the popular River Festival taking place in our home town of Stratford upon Avon.  In order to maintain GAGA's profile in the town and to provide an opportunity for people to purchase the beautiful beadwork and other items we bring back from South Africa, we have taken a pitch for the last few years.  We raised nearly £500 for our funds at the festival this year, and as a result have nearly SOLD OUT of beaded animals!

We also wanted to ensure that the residents of Stratford and visitors to the River Festival learned about our Remembering Tree yarnbombing activities.  So this year we transported our display tree and it made a wonderfully woolly focal point and conversation starter for us!

A big THANK YOU to all the people who stopped by the stand and helped to #makeadifference
