Bracelet Bay was our fourth destination for the 2011 Festival. The little bay, set in beautiful surrounding landscape of the Mumbles Hill Local Nature Reserve and cliff paths to Gower, is always a very popular festival venue each year. The hot sunshine and the opportunity to be creative on the beach, meant this year was no exception and the crowds kept coming all day.

More turned up as the artists packed away the banners and flags and were delighted with the display of sculptures left for them to see.
