“Fred’s” Festival Round Up

Mon 25 Apr 2011 by Penny_Dann

OK so I'm not Fred, but in the spirit of the round ups Fred used to undertake for the printed mag we have collected together some top Open House info sent in by members of B.i.G. Thirty years since a small group of artists in the Fiveways area came up with the idea. Look how it's grown, organised trails and brave independents showing throughout the city and beyond.
