Halloween event for the Forestry Commission.
October 28th, 2014. I spend last Saturday at Boden Boo in the shadow of the Erskine Bridge, Glasgow, on commission for the Forestry Commission. I shot the preparations for a community Hallowe’en event, lead by the FC, then the event itself. This took the form of a performance in the woods after dark by the energetic and talented Walking Theatre Company who delighted, and occasionally terrified, over 150 people. It says something of the fortitude of west coast folks that, in spite of the heavy, continuous rain, pretty much every one who had pre-booked tickets turned up and the whole event was very good humoured.Perhaps they simply have lower expectations of the weather than we “easties”. All credit to the FC too for working hard to ensure everyone had a good time.
