More fiesta than festival. Colour colour everywhere

The Hidden Lane Festival has been and gone for another year and it brought the Hidden Lane to life with its colour and music and stalls and catwalk shows. Thanks to everyone who helped to bring it all to life - a small group of people put in a huge amount of effort. Their reward? Some very happy times!
