As many local residents will have seen over the years, a few days before any festival or big event in Overton, the bunting 'appears', as if by magic, down the whole length of Bridge Street.
It is a stunning site which has accompanied every Sheep Fair and Scarecrow Festival. The bunting itself was made from old clothing by the residents of Bridge Street a few decades ago. The view as you turn down from the High Street really is stunning and sums up the carnival atmosphere in this wonderful rural Hampshire village.
Even more special, Jo South has now captured this sight for all to enjoy throughout the year. In a beautiful watercolour, now available as a limited edition Giclée print, Jo has painted the beautiful cottages of Bridge Street, as well as the vibrant bunting...and if you look closely you may even spot the fairy!
