We are three friends who came to the festival this year.
As we were writing letters [in The Lettering House] to our parents we came up with a legendary idea.
First, one of us said “I’m going to write a creepy love letter to my brother.”
We all laughed!
Then, together we decided that we should write 3 letters to randoms in the festival (all teenaged girls with brown hair and blue eyes).
We wrote on the brother’s letter “Let’s meet at Byron Bay Donuts on Tuesday at 1:30pm,” and we wrote the same thing on letters to three random girls.
On Tuesday we totally forgot about the plan until 1:45pm.
We were sad that we missed it but decided to go and see anyway.
To our amazement, 15 minutes after the meeting time they were all eating donuts together.
Afterwards, they went and sat on the Village Green.
We hope they become friends.
The Lettering House is the Woodford Folk Festival’s own postal service, where hand-written letters are delivered by bicycle or collected onsite.
