Jumpers & Jazz Festival

We headed 2 hours south to Warwick for the annual Jumpers & Jazz Festival. It's winter here in the southern hemisphere & we delight in the cold (sometimes!)  Above is the Warwick Town Hall with its columns wrapped in knitted squares.

Merody & Kathryn from the Broadstrokes Group of Artists decorated this tree with birds and birds'nests.  This is part of the Festival activities - dressing a tree. The artistry involved in some of the dressings was amazing to see.

Men of the family were catered for with this display in the main street - part of the street was closed off so these lovely cars could be enjoyed. 

This entry came from England.

Lincolnshire - to be exact!

Two lovely chickens made us smile. (Did you notice the wrought iron on the building across the street?)

This tree is outside the Art Gallery where our friend, Sue Dennis has her exhibition.

This tree is sporting tartans - there were 112 trees dressed for winter - local schools, community groups, artists from all over joined in the fun.  Music was everywhere too - a great way to spend a Sunday.
