St. George's Day celebrations at the King's Arms, Upnor, nr. Rochester:

Mainly folkies, most of whom were participating. The landlord not only put on extra beers inside the pub, but set up another bar with twelve or so different beers outside in the garden. And, blow me down, by early evening on the Saturday, the beer had nearly all gone!

The Good Intent in Rochester, hardly a huge pub, will be setting up twelve real ales (in addition to their usual selection) for the Sweeps Festival, which starts in earnest tomorrow. The large majority of customers in the upper bar/garden during Sweeps are folkies. They did the same last year and, blow me down, the beer all went!

The landlords of the establishments above are repeatedly hosting folk events, not only because they like to support folk music, but because they make good money out of it, and good luck to them.

Or is it only Kent folkies who drink?
