No, Leadfingers, it is the only comment - so far - about the Fylde DIALECT day, which was held, thanks to Alan Bell, at the Mount during the festival (which was excellent, as usual).

I really enjoyed the Dialect day too - lots of excellent performers and worthy competition winners too.

Looking forward to next year

Thanks to everyone who came from Cornwall, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Lakeland and Northumberland to make this a truly national event. Full report and pictures will be on our website www.thelancashiresociety.org.uk soon. Here's to next year! - SID

Well, I had a really good time, even though I couldn't understand everything that the participants were saying. Wonderful event, and well organised - long may it continue.

Although Sid will, no doubt, let us all know what the exact results were - for purely personal reasons I will say that John Greaves (Yorkshire) won one of the catagories and Ken Johnson (Derbyshire) was given an honorary mention in another.

Keith was very good in the concert (well, you'd expect me to say that, wouldn't you), and so was Mo Keast from Cornwall. If you don't know who Mo is, she's a Cornish Bard, a wonderful story teller and sings songs in Cornish and in Cornish dialect.

Another surprise was Johnny Matthews, who played the Lancashire pipes - excellent.

Keith and I couldn't stay for the evening dialect singaround, but we'll be back next year.

Bigger and better, I say.

Cheers

Sylvia ust to repeat my message on the other thread about the dialect day at Fylde:
