Misty, Frequently Water-Coloured, Memories

Two weeks on and the eleventh Flatpack already seems like a distant dream, and we’re slowly returning to normality here at Flatpack HQ. The detour from everyday life came to an end; we had a brilliant time – we hope you did too. Whichever way you chose to spend the 6 days of Flatpackery, thanks for coming. 

To all of you, “those wonderful people out there in the dark”, we really value your feedback and it helps us to plan for next time, so, if you can, please take the time to fill out our brief post-Flatpack survey.

We hope you enjoy this selection of images from the festival to help you relive the memory. An enormous thanks to our fantastic photographers, Katja Ogrin, Tom Bird, Greg Milner and Jack Spicer Adams, whose fine work you can peruse below.
