‘Food & Folk’ At The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum, Sunday 1st May 2016

Update 18th April: The song list has been added at the end of this post.
The dawn chorus is in full swing, the weather is getting warmer, it must be time for our first Spring event.

As usual the Museum have provided us with a limited number of wristband passes for those Singers volunteering to sing at the event. First come first served.

I will be at the Worthing session on the 6th April to hand out these as well as on the 27th April beginning-of-season practice session at the same venue. If you can't make either of these and only Lewes on the 19th or Selham on the 21st, please let me know ASAP by email so that I can arrange to give them to a singer from these meetings to pass on to you.

There will be 2 sets, at 12.00 - 12.30hrs & 14.00 - 14.30hrs in the central exhibition area as last year.

The song list appears below.

The Museum is in the throes of the HLF + funded 'Gateway Project' (see WDOAM website) of new construction and re-positioning of existing buildings, so it will be interesting to view their progress, as well as all the event's activities.

Many thanks,

John C.
