Kudos all round to the excellent team behind last weekend’s riotous Threshold Festival. The city categorically set out its manifesto for our creative, inventive and collaborative future. And being at the CUC this weekend felt like you were in the eye of the storm.
In years to come, those who attended can look back, misty eyed, and say, yeah, I was there at the very first one. It was that kind of event; the buzz was tangible. It would be unfair to single out any specific bands, performance companies or other creatives. But let’s just say there were a few SevenStreets spied who we’re very keen to bring to your attention over the coming weeks. Watch this space. And if you missed it all, like, where were you?
Photographer John Hollingsworth was there (well, there was a school of snappers prowling the labyrinthine corridors, and no doubt they’ll have captured a completely different experience – that’s how eclectic and multi-faceted the weekend was. But, for now, feast your eyes on John’s work at his flickr stream.
See you next year…
