A COLOURFUL collection of musicians, artists and revellers hardly touched down as they partied at the eclectic Space Mountain music festival.

The bash at the home of world-famous music producer Martin Glover, aka Youth, brought together an intriguing mix of talents across three stages.

As well as live music from the likes of the Orb there was an art gallery, food stalls and a ‘healing centre’.

Meanwhile, Youth who has worked with The Verve, U2 and Paul McCartney, riffed with a range of like-minded musicians in his recording studio.

At one spoken word event, Craig Sams, founder of Green and Black’s chocolate, talked about the science behind the brand.

“We wanted the company to represent something sustainable and at the same time something mysterious,” he told the audience.

It was a very community-focused weekend with plenty of families and children.

Doors open 7pm and tickets cost £12.
