Thread Name: May Day Old Time Music Weekend
Subject: May Day Old Time Music Weekend
It's that time of the year again, take the warming pan out of the cupboard, string it up, and head down /or up to Sewerby in East Yorkshire. FOAOTMAD'S Mayday weekend of old tome music and dance. Campervans, Caravans or |Tents welcome. This is a free weekend to members and guests in order to promote Old Time Music and Dance. This year I have been informed that there may be at least 4 dance teams on site and there will be classes for dance between 1030 and 1130 am Saturday and Sunday morning. You can get into the park after 12 on Thursday the 1st May although most turn up on the Friday. We do not have to leave until midday Wednesday although most have left by Tuesday midday. Directions will be signposted but if you get lost ask for the Ship public house. , Drive into it's car park and keep heading for the cliffs with the sea in front of you. You will come to an access road to the park, turn left and follow the road round to the left, when you see the station, (turning point for the land train) in front of you, go to your left onto the grass, behind the seat and the deer pens, there will be a double black gate in front of you that the keepers will open for you. However if you arrive after 6 you will have to come into the park and give me a shout. After 8 and it will be the pub. The landlord of the Ship is putting a mini beer festival on for us and evening kick off will be 8pm each night in the pub. If you don't know Sewerby you can put Sewerby House into Goggle and check it out. Cheers all. John. Y
