The 2005 landside programme was by far and away the most extensive ever to be held at the Festival. Visitors were able to watch potters, a blacksmith, weavers, lace and candle makers, model makers, basket weaving, and much much more. There were opportunities to learn about natural history, lighthouses, our maritime heritage, waste management, and fire fighting. Whatever your area of interest it was at the Festival.
