Rhayader Fayre Free Festival .
May 1st-31st 1976.
Press coverage .
No surprises as to the flippant tone of this Tabloid coverage of the Rhayader festival. However, its probably preferable to the rancid rabble rousing tones adopted by Fleet street in the 1980s towards travellers and practitioners of alternative lifestyles.
Rise and shine, its a rude awakening for the nudes of hippie valley
And thats the end of the nudes.
Its the end of a dream for 300 happy nudes of Hippie Valley. And a two week idyll in the sunshine vanishes in the cold , gray light of dawn as the bleary eyed shivering children of nature are told by police. Move along there please
Three hours later the site was empty and a golden adventure was all wrapped up.
