At present I personally have to be very cautious about what I arrange on behalf of others.
The only 'formal' arrangements so far are that Hartley Morris Men (who were based at the Coach House from 1970 - 77) will be performing from 1 - 1.30pm. The Morris is not recognised in law as entertainment but an audience would be appreciated.
After dancing HMM will no doubt partake of luncheon followed by the customary song or few.
Assuming Skinners Rats will be there then no doubt they will also burst forth with some odd renditions. And Dave Masterson with, no doubt, odder ones.
As I said in my previous posting, everyone is welcome to - 'chat, sing, dance or do whatever old memories may rekindle' which of course may include playing with your instrument.
Any sessions in the pub will be informal, if things get under way before 1pm all I would ask is that they don't compete with the dancing display outside when it starts. Lets try to emulate the six deep crowds that filled the car park during Coach House folk days back in the 70's.
I would suggest anyone wanting to be involved in the post-dispay session(1.30-3.30) gets in touch with Hartley's Squire and Blossom in order to establish some co-ordination rather than breaking up into separate camps.
It's all meant to be memories and fun and I'm sure a John Barker figure will emerge to MC if we are inundated with talent.
