Every year, for the past few years, I’ve intended to visit the Obz Festival, but I’ve never ended up going. I can’t say what the exact reasons were. I had friends that were going and the weather was good, so in theory I should have been there. I think the fact that the website didn’t have enough information might have played a role, something which has changed this year. I went to look at the all new and improved website for the Obz Festival and it’s great, full of useful information.
In fact the website makes it sounds so appealing that I’m definitely going this year. The festival runs from Friday the 5th of Dec to Sun the 7th and has many elements to it. Live music from a whole long list of bands, several markets over the course of the weekend and a film festival at the Armchair Theatre screening a selection of documentaries from the Encounters Documentary Festival earlier this year. There is also a strong focus on keeping kids happy with a variety of activities and entertainment tailored for them. Not to mention the food stalls and the restaurants in Observatory which are well worth checking out (well some of them anyway).
So I will hopefully see you there.
