    A Medieval Fair was held in Dunkirk, Nottingham in 2014. I was a photographer/videographer volunteer for the organisation who made this event happen. The edit is not great as I didn't realise there were still audio in video clips because I'm deaf!

          Within the building green and blue, Reactor members old and new, Gathered once more to try and find, a candidate suitable in heart and mind. Under Reactor’s all seeing eye, and the bad luck of a single dead magpie, The loveliest water was drunk by all, as the Scottish myth revealed its call. ‘We make curtains out of goats hair’, was the chant that sang out on streets so fair, A parade of lanterns to the doors we did take, a lot of noise and commotion there we did make. We would like to pay tribute to the generosity of Douglas Road residents as we called door-to-door; all proceeds collected during this year’s parade will go towards the purchase of new jam jar lanterns for 2013. Exuberant though the festivities may have seemed, Reactor's Martinmas celebrations always contain an aspect of great and solemn seriousness. In the 4th century AD, the Bishop St. Martin was walking to Rome on a pilgrimage. He encountered Satan and was mocked by him. As punishment St. Martin turned the devil into a donkey and rode the lazy beast for the remainder of his journey. The donkey cursed him and spoke in palindromes. Because of this significant encounter, Reactor chose this date as the most appropriate for the interviewing of potential new group members and for their initiation into the most honoured role of Secret Member – a role that is theirs for exactly one year, until the wheel turns once more to Martinmas. Reactor sincerely encourages those who feel ready to join the group, and to take on the role of Secret Member, to step forward urgently and present themselves for the Martinmas Interviews.

              After two years in alien surroundings, Reactor’s Martinmas celebrations returned home to the Towers in Nottingham. Members past and present gathered together to carry new candidates across the threshold of the chamber. Once inside, time flew by and spirits were high as we trod the new season’s wine, gracefully leapt over the donkey’s frame and sang loudly to our new lampion. Keeping with tradition, despite a strong wind, the troupe braved the inclement weather to wish the merry folk of the Nottingham a very “Happy Martinmas!” Exuberant though the festivities may have seemed, Reactor's Martinmas celebrations always contain an aspect of great and solemn seriousness.

                The joyous tradition of Martinmas is upon us once more. Again the candidates were required to journey north, this time to Newcastle upon Tyne, and to bring with them the appropriate sacrifice. After the meat was eaten off it, the breastbone was examined. Revealing a fair and clear bone, indicating that the winter is likely to be cold and full of hard frosts. Undeterred, the Reactor men went singing door to door with jam lanterns, and one of the troupe in clothing commonly associated with the other gender.
