All the fun of the Festival… Jan writes about her quality time with her daughter, Nicolina, at the Bearded Theory Festival last May For a long time I had been wanting to spend some quality time with my daughter, Nicolina, where we could do something really special together and which we would both enjoy. So, when I heard about the Bearded Theory Festival, I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity.

We pitched our tent, surprisingly fairly easily, and we went off to explore the festival area arriving first of all at the Children’s Village and the Angels Garden. There was so much to do we didn’t know where to start but during the course of the 3 days we managed to sample just about everything! There was lantern making, face painting, glueing, dancing We woke early and our adventure began and storytelling to name but a few and arriving in the beautiful grounds of Nicolina decided that her Kedleston Hall at around 10.00 am on favourite things were the Friday morning. I had been a little the water balls and worried about having to carry our tent trying her hand at the and belongings on our own to the circus skills. camp site but friendly help was immediately on hand to assist us and we It was soon lunchtime chose our spot in the quieter family and we went in search camping area. of something tasty. We were surprised that there wasn’t the usual array of junk food on offer, but a varied selection of foods from around the globe from simple foods such as chicken and roast potatoes and sausage and mash to Tibeten, Chinese and Nicolina’s favourite… freshly made pancakes. The music, however, was of course the main part of the festival and there was something for everyone from The Waterboys and Alabama 3 to X Factor’s Wagner! But the musical entertainment wasn’t the only thing that was interesting.

There were so many varied stalls selling unusual items and the people at the Festival were just as colourful with some people in fancy dress and, as you may expect from the Festival’s name, some wearing beards! The culmination of which was an attempt to break the World Record for the most people wearing beards which took place at 1.00 pm on the Sunday. Whether this was achieved, I am not yet sure. The weekend passed far too quickly and we were sad to pack up our tent and leave. We had enjoyed the music, the activities, the food, the people and had been pleasantly surprised how litter free and surprisingly clean the toilets had been (something quite unique for a Festival of this kind)! It was such a great weekend… and we can’t wait until next year for our special time together once more!

Summer Fashion …when it comes to fashion, the seasons really do change and none more so then the summer months. Here are a few tips to add some fashion must haves to your wardrobe this summer. The silhouettes of the 1950s and 1960s continue to be very strong. Shapes that accentuate curves and femininity. A figure hugging shift dress with a belowthe-knee hem is the ultimate in hourglass dressing. It also flatters a more curvy figure so is great for the majority of British women. Think Marilyn Monroe or Christina Hendricks from the US hit series Mad Men. For a younger look raise the hem line to above the knee, introduce bold colours or try a full circle skirt version. Maxi dresses are still big this season but with a twist. Look for the sheer maxi with details of antique lace or crochet. Another interesting alternative is tail hems, shorter at the front and longer at the back. From hot tropical prints in flowing sheers to one colour jerseys in a slim shift.

create a slimmer silhouette. When it comes to jewellery, look for beads and bangles in bright summer tones or naturals in wood. We all love (and need) our handbags and I could write a whole section on this subject! Put your larger slouch styles to the back of the wardrobe and get yourself a clutch. Although a lot smaller, this style is very neat and perfect for accessorising a special outfit. Search out car boots and second hand shops for an original. Another big look is the belt purse, although how you’ll get everything in it remains to be seen! Tassels are everywhere this season, from bags to brooches, sandals to scarves. When it comes to shoes you will find the trend is for clogs for everyday and kitten heels for dressing up. Having said all of this, I am a great believer in giving a nod to fashion and never a slave. Leave the adventurist to the weird and wonderful and just pick one or two elements so show you’re in the know! Now all we need is a bit more of this wonderful sunshine…

The lagenlook (which is the fancy term for layered) is always popular for any season or age. This look is great for covering any areas you don’t want on show. The secret to getting this look right is to layer with tonal shades and keeping fabrics light.

By Holly Saunders, Frox The Courtyard Draycott Accessories are always a major factor in updating your wardrobe. Tel: 01332 875572 A must have accessory for the true fashion follower are cats eye www.froxshop.com sunglasses - from subtle to extreme in all the colours of the rainbow. Soft scarves in pastel florals (think vintage) will brighten up a plain tee and linen trousers. If you keep your clothes all one colour, then add a bright longer scarf and it will automatically

Byki Online Language Courses In an exciting new venture, Derby City Libraries are now offering Byki Online Language Courses. This allows you to choose from over 70 languages. Byki is a powerful language learning system that uses flashcards to teach you a set of foreign words or phrases, in a way which

locks them in your long term memory. You can quickly learn common words and essential phrases, as well as developing spelling and pronunciation at your own pace. As you build your collection of words you are also introduced to key phrases and commonly used expressions. Through each step you are supported by native language speakers to give you a sense of how the language concerned should sound. Byki is, in particular, an ideal learning system for children, by supporting their natural ability to absorb languages and helping them practice their vocabulary in a fun and enjoyable way. Once they start, they won’t be able to stop!

Help your child learn a language It’s free and easy with Derby City Libraries. We offer over 70 online language courses that you can access on your home computer or on some smart phones. To subscribe you’ll need to live, work or study in Derby. Visit www.derby.gov.uk/libraries for details call 01332 641701.
