On Colonsay the season starts with Easter, and this year the weather was fair and and there was as a lot going on, including Easter Egg hunting. Read more in the Corncrake article on Easter: Easter on Colonsay and Alastair Scouller’s fine piece on the Easter church service: Chocolate eggs in church. Easter was late this year so there was not long to wait until the annual Book Festival at the end of April. This year’s Book Festival saw an excellent bevvy of authors, including Alexander McCall Smith who was returning for a second appearance. See the report on the Book Festival: Book Festival Report for more details. As the Book Festival closed its literary doors the Spring Festival opened the barn doors on a cornucopia of three weeks of events, walks and tutored workshops. The Spring Festival was again popular, busy and much enjoyed by its participants. The Spring Festival is now so large that the Corncrake report has been split into two. The first half of the report on the Festival: Spring Festival – the first half, is below, and the report on the second half of the Festival will follow soon.
