St Caron’s Well Festival-Program
This is a brief overview of what’s planned to happen. I’ll try and neaten it up and send direct to anyone who’s bought a ticket. But distillation may help you plan your visit and which ticket to buy—-if you can, please get by advance as it helps me plan exactly what to expect! But for Friday and Saturday Night tickets (cash) on the door is an option. We could really do with selling 30 more tickets 🙁
