This is the calm before the storm. Arwen has her checklists, Edwin is driving up from South Wales, and Phil is in a diabetic coma from eating all the Hobnobs.
This time tomorrow we’ll be an hour in to the Dancing England reboot. Thank you if you’ve supported us and/or bought a ticket. There’s a few left for purchase online but as of 12 noon tomorrow it’ll be pay on the door. Slightly more, so save a few quid by getting yours HERE.
Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, some new ones, and plenty of damn fine dancing from the likes of the Newcastle Kingsmen, Two Step, Fools Gambit, Severn Gilders, Horwich Prize Medal, Toby Bennett, Out of Hand Jig Team, Star and Shadow, Bampton Traditional, Seven Champions, Redcar Longsword, Platt Bridge Morris, and more.
Doors open at 5:30, the bar will be open serving excellent real ale (and other assorted beverages), programmes and posters will be on sale in the bar, and for your perusal there will be several exhibitions of various things folky and dancetastic. We will be supporting the Doc Rowe Archive and Collections with our raffle, some lovely prizes up for grabs.
The show will finish around 9:30, then afterwards we’ll be treated to the Will Pound Ceilidh Band with Fee Lock and for those of a session disposition, Ed Johnson will be leading a French Bal in the main room.
All in all, sounds like a cracking show. See you there!
