They'll be staying around the Coniston area.

Anyone know of any Folky events in the area happening Fri/Sat nights?

There are monthly sessions in Coniston, but not sure which night of the week. Also first Wednesdays of the month at the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotal in Great Langdale. Neil Walmsley, landlord of the ODG,will be able to tell you all you need to know: tel 015394 37272.

Since I couldn't find the bit of paper I wrote this down on when Neil at Old Dungeon Ghyll told me, I've just phoned him. So this is from the horse's mouth. Sessions at:
First Wed of month - Old Dungeon Ghyll
Second Wed of month - Prince of Wales, Foxfield (near Broughton in Furness)
Third Wed of month - SUN INN, CONISTON
Fourth Wed of month - Prince of Wales, Foxfield again
Also some Thursdays and Fridays at Middleton Fells Inn near Sedgbergh (although that's miles away)and some Wednesdays at Dickie Doodle's in Kendal.

Hope that clarifies things! (although still nothing really for Mr Happy's wife and friends for a weekend in November - sorry)

Mr Happy: if you're at Bromyard this weekend you could collar Martyn Harvey, he may well have an idea of anything going on in the area.

If you're not there and I see him I'll ask for you.

For those of you in the Cumbria that you seem to think is a folk desert, we'll be taking our show of archive film and folk song, 'This Farming Life' to some of the villages in West Cumbria from 16th-21st October. For further information, have a look at our website here
