How we began…
Inspired by the explosion of creative festivals in Britain, and conceived as a way to stem summer reading loss, especially in vulnerable readers, Elizabeth invited the whole town to Isabella’s wild back garden to experience the joy of storytelling, sack races, homemade lemonade, a writing workshop, a book swap and buckets of sunshine. A bit mad, yes, but a blast. The following summer we met in Chantal’s gorgeous garden by the bay. Then we landed at Isabella’s Farm and discovered magic.
And here we are.
Our 2019 Festival wouldn’t be possible without these folks!
Thank you to everyone in the Bellport and Brookhaven communities for supporting our mission.
And special thanks to our fabulous partners who helped bring our festival to life!
Sponsorship keeps our ticket prices low so that everyone can join in the fun!
