Site Details & Directions

Hosted by Home Counties Folk, Dance & Song Group

This is a booked meet and all bookings should be made with Home Counties via their website –

Friday evening we expect an evening of informal song and music, if weather allows this may be outdoors on the field as it’s light until late, and hopefully warm. On Saturday night, and possibly on Sunday as well, we hold a dance at the hall with a caller – anyone is welcome to join in and no dance experience is necessary. There are “spots” provided by members/guests/visitors – these can be musical or be “sketches” or poetry reading (humorous), jokes – anything which is amusing and everyone is welcome to contribute – the MC for the evening will arrange beforehand who is doing what. Anyone who plays an instrument is welcome to join the Home Counties band for the evening –  we can supply details of the music books we use if anyone is interested.

During the day it’s usually free for people to do what they want – quite often a walk will be informally organised and would be advertised on the noticeboard by the stewards’ unit. Sometimes we have informal playing groups on the field – there is a thriving ukulele group for example. Sometimes people bring outdoor games which they set up, but that depends on who is present. On Sunday morning we have a coffee “gather” for socialising and payment of fees.
