The skies above St Annes seafront were filled with bright colours this weekend as spectacular display kites took to the air in celebration of St Annes Kite Festival.

Visitors of all ages packed the beach to enjoy kites of all shapes, sizes and colours during this superb two-day event which was blessed with beautiful sunny weather and, thankfully, enough wind to fly a kite.

Each day I spent a few hours photographing the kite festival and recording ambient sound for those of you who missed St Annes Kite Festival or are thinking of coming next year.

Glastonbury Festival needs no introduction. Everyone has heard of Glastonbury and everyone wants a ticket. Nobody wants to miss out on the chance to spend five hedonistic days partying, come rain or mud, on the famous Worthy Farm.

Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time (one hour and twenty-seven minutes if you must know) back in October 2013.

With more than a million people registered for the festival and only 120,000 tickets available, I’d say I was lucky to get my hands on a ticket.

I decided to take my compact camera rather than my DSLR so I could balance shooting some photography with the freedom to let loose and enjoy the festival.

Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city. Every year thousands of performers take to a multitude of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste.

From big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers, the festival caters for everyone and includes street theatre, comedy, dance, musicals, operas, music, exhibitions and events.

Public holidays were surely introduced so that the majority of the population could take a well deserved break from the daily grind of work and go out to thoroughly enjoy themselves.

I thought that I’d spend this year’s August Bank Holiday in London photographing the main parade of Europe’s largest street festival: Notting Hill Carnival.
