Creation of a miniature fete experience including Donkey Derby. Idea & realisation Hannah Wood & Sally Stevens.
The idea was to make a fun, interactive experience as a side event at the Latitude Festival. Illustrator Sally Stevens and I designed, created and made fools of ourselves performing Mrs Biggum’s Fete for the Latitude Festival in 2007. We provided classics such as Splat the Rat! with sock rats and penny whistle sound effects, a proud Gurning photo booth, impossible Paper Welly Wanging and my labour of love, The Donkey Derby.
The 2 person donkey costumes were a hit, with groups of 4 lining up to donkey up in pairs and race the hell out of each other, under the excited commentary of the loud hailer, using whatever co-ordination they had left after their party nights.
