Steve Davey has been hooked on festivals since yearly outings to the Weston-super-Mare carnival as a boy, and still visits as many as possible to 'experience the magic'. His colourful survey begins in Africa with Ethiopia's Maskal day (celebrating St Helena's discovery of the True Cross), and visits festivals great and small, from the vast Kumbh Mela bathing festivals of India or the Palio of Siena to flaming tar barrels in Ottery St Mary, Devon.
