Supernormal Festival 2019
2-4 August

This weekend we are heading to Braziers Park in Oxfordshire to take part in the experimental art and music festival Supernormal. I'll be performing with the family... daughter Sally Plowman (Stucky) and John Plowman. It should be good. If you are there we will be in the Barn at 11.50am on Sunday 4 August, come see us. 

Blow your house down

July saw the very start of my next major long term project, a collaboration with John, to leave Lincolnshire and embark on a straw bale build near the Kent or Sussex coast. In Spring 2020  our chapel will go on the market, so if you or anyone you know currently owns a £££££  but too small  home and is looking to move to a huge and beautiful live work set up in the country,  keep in touch! 

Sooo... we spent a fantastic weekend acquiring new and brushing up old skills at a straw bale workshop held by the Brighton Permaculture Trust at Stanmer Park in East Sussex. Our future is straw!
