Hi hoped you enjoyed these photos from Celebr8.2.  If you were at the festival but didn’t pick one up or you weren’t aren’t at the festival I highly recommend getting the Limited Edition Celebr8.2 official programme.

Full colour includes 2 CD’s of rare/unreleased tracks from the bands who appeared at Celebr8.2. £10 goes to cover the costs of the programme and will help to secure the return of Celebr8 next year.

It’s available from The Merch Desk
