Julie Thurston has forwarded some information about Halsway Manor in Somerset. I had never heard of it - it's a centre for things folk - including songs, tunes, storytelling and folklore. Julie especially wanted to draw our attention to one of their many events: they have a mini-festival from 4-8 November (residential) which sounds wonderful.
Indeed, the place itself sounds wonderful - click here and explore the website. We could possibly stay there for a few days and run a workshop or two as well as attending other events. If the Isle of Wight was fun, then perhaps it was the first in an annual series of SDFS getaways .... what do you think? Leave a comment, why don't you?!
