For the past two years I’ve been facepainting at Hadley Bowling Green Inn‘s Shire Horse Funday in July. Sadly this year I shall be away in Scotland when it’s on. However …
I was asked if I’d come along and paint at their Easter Sunday event for the afternoon. It’s a very fine establishment and I’ve always found the staff extremely friendly and helpful.
I usually paint something on my face or arm when I do an event. Today it was my arm’s turn.
What a treat to be facepainting inside! Last Easter I was at a place called Bugsworth Basin and a gale was blowing most of the weekend, as well as driving rain. It can get rather cold ‘working’ outside.
Hadley Bowling Green Inn provided me with my own room, a table and lots of chairs.
I usually paint specific designs for events, especially seasonal ones. These are the boards for today – I had another three larger boards too so everyone had a good choice.
I had a steady stream of people all afternoon, from the very young to the two dad’s badgered into being Easter Bunnies by their daughters (sadly I didn’t take any photos of them!). A few of the staff had small cheek designs, and some fun-loving ladies too, as well as a number of charming teenagers.
What a joyful ‘job’ I chose three years ago. I’m so looking forward to my next event at St Richard’s Festival, Droitwich, 29th April to 1st May.
