THERE was something for everyone at the three-day Childwickbury Arts Festival.

A real family affair, children were catered for by the face painters and workshops laid on to help them make and paint their own works of art.

The event is the brainchild of artist Christiane Kubrick - widow of the world famous film director Stanley Kubrick. She allows her home and gardens at the private estate between St Albans and Harpenden to be used for artists to exhibit their wares.

The Soulfish concert on the Friday night was a sell-out and Ade Edmondson and The Bad Shepherds attracted a large crowd on the Saturday night.

Paula Murray, who helped organise the festival, said: "We were delighted with how it all went. It is a non-profit making event and all the proceeds will go to Grove House Hospice."

Music also featured during the daytime events devoted to artists selling their work with La Bouche Manouche playing to a Saturday lunchtime audience and six local bands playing to the Sunday visitors.
