A reminder to everyone that FYLDE DIALECT DAY is on Sunday 6th Sept at the Mount Hotel, 12.00 noon onwards. I believe it's the first time that a national gathering of English dialect speakers, writers and performers has been attempted and support has been very positive. Some people can't make it (a surprising number of England's farmers are harvesting!), but some are going to great lengths to be there. This could be the start of an annual event which will in future travel the country, being organised by a different region each year.
Dialect enthusiasts should head for the Fylde Festival, entries for the competitions and concert can be taken on the day - I'll see you there. More info at events on www.thelancashiresociety.org.uk
