Must admit that I found this year's Oyster Festival quite disappointing. Instead of the usual large number of morris sides, only the local Dead Horse were performing. Entertainment on the streets was very thin on the ground, unlike last time round.
A new addition was the stage down on the harbour. The cynic might suggest that this was placed thus to drive the crowds down to where all the food and ale stalls were located, so they'd spend plenty of money. I am a cynic and would indeed suggest this ;)
But I only did the Saturday, there may have been wall to wall entertainment the rest of the week ;)
Enjoyed the bands that played, plus the Shanty Singers and the Japanese drummers.
