Wet start hasn't dampened Woodford Folk Festival

THE 29th annual Woodford Folk Festival is off to a wet start today, although no one seems to mind.

Thousands of music and arts lovers have already poured into the festival site at Woodfordia armed with brollies, gum boots and ponchos.

The six-day event includes live music, dancing, performance art, crafts and a nightly lantern parade.

Today's musical highlights include The Violent Femmes, Bertie Blackman and Darren Middleton.
