A last minute trip to Wilderness Festival in Charlsbury, Oxfordshire, proved to be an absolute feast of music, cuisine, art, rolling hills and most of all fantastic festival style. Saturday night’s masked ball brought out a stunning array of magical costumes, and the party took on the feel of a fairy tale land; think medieval gowns, top hats, corsets and plenty of plumage. Musical highlights included Laura Marling, Anthony and The Johnsons and Toots and the Maytals.
