For one week only Springburn Park was taken over by a tented village of dreams. Over 4000 people visited the Big Top, Music Tent, Exhibition Tent, Star Shade Chill Out Area and Storytelling Yurt and got their imaginations working overtime!
There were over 50 workshops, over 15 performances in the Big Top, 5 ceilidhs, 3 tea dances, storytelling, music, circus, relaxation, poetry, a silent disco, teddy bears picnics, some imaginative crazy bicycles and much more. 4000 people attended and more than 40 volunteers helped out. Toonspeak also ran a six week festival placement programme for 12 young people ages 16-19 years old.
