Thank you to everyone who took part in this amazing event – greeters, security, stage managers, artists, poets, musicians, sponsors and all of you who visited and shared the experience.

The four regions will be open all Saturday for people to visit and explore all the art installations and galleries.

Sunday will be take-down day, with artists removing their installations and the stage being removed – but before that last happens, we will be having a Take Down Party at 2pm SLT.

I would say that we’ll dance till we drop but – as we know from Friday – that could take rather a long time!
