The Fair will be run by Weald Crafts, the locally renowned Craft Guild, and there will be lots of hand crafted items for sale as well as the wonderful items in the Llama Park’s own Gift and Fashion Shops.

Below is the promotional leaflet and below that some photos of a few of the items that will be on display.

Mud, Mud Glorious Mud

We have created a Llama Mud Song

“The Lllamapotamus”
With apologies to Michael Flanders…

A bold llamapotamus was standing one day
On the banks of the Pippingford stream
He gazed at the bottom as it peacefully lay
By the light of the evening star

Away on the hilltop sat combing her hair
His fair llamapotamine maid
But llama-pot-amus was no stick-in-the-mudamus
And sang her this sweet serenade

Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me, follow me down to the hollow
And there let us wallow in glorious mud

The fair llamapotama he aimed to entice
From here seen on the hilltop above
As she had not got a ma to give her advice
Came tip-toeing down to her love

Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me, follow me down to the hollow
And there let us wallow in glorious mud

Like thunder the forest re-echoed the sound
Of the song that they sang as they met
His enamorata adjusted her garter
And lifted her voice in duet

Mud, mud, what a glorious lark
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me, follow to the llama park
And there let us wallow in glorious mud

Follow me, follow me to the llama park
There’s plenty of space in their car park
Now more llamapotami began to arrive
On the banks of that stream so big and so wide

I wonder now what I am to say of the scene
That ensued by the Pippingford side.
Llamapotami diving all at once with an ear-splitting splash
Then rose to the surface again and again
A regular army of llamapotami
All singing this jaunty refrain

Mud, mud, what a glorious lark
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me, follow to the llama park
And there let us wallow in glorious mud
