JJ Waller reviews St Leonards Festival in pictures and words

Friend of HOT and photographer JJ Waller has been photographing St Leonards for over a decade. The photos here document his experience of the St Leonards Festival events – and the Jeremy Corbyn rally – last Saturday.

JJ says: “I’m sending over a set of pictures for you to share with HOT readers, They pretty much reflect my day, i just loved it.”

“and cracked paving.”

To see more of JJ Waller’s photographs, read the review of his book about St Leonards.

Editor’s footnote: the one sad event of the day was a young lad who had been standing on the railings fell and impaled the top of his leg. Fortunately he’s making a rapid recovery. To our knowledge, the person in the top photograph is not the young man who fell.
