Back to the Island

Last night, the opening in the Guildhall of the splendid new show about the 1968/1969/1970 IOW Festivals – and many congratulations to Nigel, Audrie and Phil for their efforts plus:

Ray Foulk – one of the three brothers who put them on and who with daughter Caroline has written the two excellent books about the events. Here he is last night telling us stuff about them

Plus Ray & Nigel have produced another book for the Exhibition (£7)
