Celebrities on Coniston
Our It's a Lake District Knock Out heads recycled

Big heads afloat

Not content with our 4 local celebrity effigies from It's a Lake District Knockout
appearing in the competition, they also appeared in last weekend's 'boatdressing' event at the Coniston Water Festival.
They were worn by a number of willing sailors, including Jenny Brownrigg (ex Grizedale Arts, now curator at Duncan of Jordanstone Uni) who made it across sans lifejacket as Beatrix Potter.
Word on the street (singular) in Coniston is that our event was a hit. I might even be asked back next year.
