Steve in Sidmouth 50th Towersey Festival (17) RE: 50th Towersey Festival 31 Oct 14


There is an article in the latest "Set and Turn Single" folk dance magazine about the move to Thame. It also mentions a certain book, copies of which are now available.....(but not "freely" available)

I missed Towersey this year - maybe I'll try the new venue in 2015!

An article in the Thame Gazette apparently stated the festival contributed 275,000 to local projects over 50 years, and concluded that Towersey "will be poorer for the move in every way".

I hope the superb ceilidh tent dance floor will be at Thame in 2015.

I welcome the comments about overcrowding - some venues are simply absurd in terms of dancers per square metre. At folk dances I help to organise we set a door limit so as to permit good dancing space for those who do buy tickets. some guidance on numbers per square metre is here:

folk dancers per square metre

comments welcome.
