Penrose’s Annual, 1934

This use of fat faces in the 1930s is quite interesting – effectively early Victoriana. It’s fun to compare it to Betjeman’s Ghastly Good Taste of the previous year.
On this topic, does anyone know what the Festival is that 'Falstaff Festival’ is a reference to? I wondered if it’s a Festival of Britain reference, but if so I can’t find references to that anywhere.
