Celtic celebration

The Glen Innes Celtic Festival is held the first weekend in May each year. I was lucky enough to experience one day of it this year through a photojournalist course I took part in.

To my surprise it wasn’t all about bagpipes and kilts. An Armidale re-enactment group, The New England Medieval Arts Society (NEMAS), were also a big part of the celebration including camping at the towns Standing Stones site.

Other than hearing a mass pipe band play in Glen Innes’ main street, seeing, talking to and being allowed to take photos of the members of NEMAS would be the highlight of my day at the festival.
