Many thanks to everyone who came to visit us and the Wild Things at the Highcross last week, we had a rumpus of a time! We loved meeting new and familiar faces, painting faces, and introducing you to Bamboozle's wild furry faces!

We handed out hundreds of brochures, so we look forward to seeing you all at the festival this Summer!
