Jesus Jellett

Dunno if Jeus actually was dancing at Bickershaw, if he was he must have been impervious to cold. Here he's wearing the same jocks he wore at Reading 1974...... and it looks too sunny to be Bickershaw.

Patrick and Thierry Rouchon traveled to the festival from their native France and took several hundred images of the event, they arrived early so we get to see the gradual transformation of the festival site from a relatively damp , tidy arena to a mud filled sodden sea of plastic and rubbish !!!!!
