George Street closed during the Festival
George Street closed during the Festival
The annual influx of Festival visitors used to feel like an invasion. Now it seems more like an occupation. Streets and squares are taken over by Festival-goers while local residents continue to go about their daily business as best they can. The structure here is 'The Famous Spiegeltent'. Normally councils don't like people pitching tents on their patch, but this one was a notable (and no doubt profitable) exception.
