Date: 24 Mar 10 - 07:17 AM

This years National Dialect Day will take place on Saturday 16th October, 2.00pm - 11.00pm, at Euxton Parish Community Centre, Nr Chorley, Lancashire. There will be competitions for writing and performing in any English dialect and an evening concert of the Country's best dialect performers.

Future events will be staged annually all around England, organised by other dialect societies.

Email me at lancashire.sid@hotmail.com to register your interest, offer your services or book a place in the competitions.

Last years entries came from Northumberland, Lakeland, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Cornwall and we are actively seeking dialect speakers and singers from the south and southeast of England to add to this year.

Please pass this info. on to any likely candidates that you know and let's make it a truly National Dialect Festival!

Sid, Chairman, The Lancashire Society

Thanks for the very entertaining samples of your songs and talks, Sid. Thanks to Mudcat and my UK friends who've sent me stuff, I think I caught most of it, though if I listen a few more times, I am sure I'll get more. I'd still have to ask the meaning of some of the words, though. Really fun to hear and read about. I hope the Fest is a big success.

I think it is so important to preserve dialects. There are not many in Western Colorado who sound like natives as my mom and dad and siblings did/do. I lost some of it while away, but am gaining it back.

Thanks, again,

Yes everyone, This is the event that we started last year with support from Fylde Festival, but we had some complaints from our nation's farmers who are harvesting in September and couldn't get there! So this year we've moved it out with a view to establishing it as a separate day so that in future years it can travel the country organised in a different area each time. The local council, Chorley Arts, are supporting us in Euxton this year.(pronounced EXTON by the way.)

And yes Greg I am, although it's only 30 years since "Beggar Boy of the North" isn't it?

Now, when you say 'English dialects' to do mean dialects from England or do you mean dialects of the English language?

There's a world of difference. heh heh   :)

I wish I could name the book, but I can't. Nonetheless, I read a fascinating book a couple years ago about the forms of English worldwide. I was surprised to learn that there are 'descendants' of English in remote parts of the world that I couldn't recognize until the author demonstrated the similarities.

Fascinating!

If you go to our website (www.thelancashiresociety.org.uk) you will find a report for last year on the events page where you can also listen to the winning entries.

We have, historically, held competitions at Fylde Festival for writing and performing in the Lancashire dialect only, but last year decided to invite entries representing all the regional dialects of England.

The competitions were for writing in the local (in this case the Lancashire) dialect, for writing in any English dialect and for performing in any English dialect. It turned into a celebration of our Nation's literary and spoken heritage! Marvellous!!!

Aye, it's not easy, but to be as fair as possible the judging is carried out by a panel of experts. Academics (linguistics and phonetics) and officials from visiting dialect societies. The judges decision is, of course, final.

Certainly, MadauntieCat. the competition categories for writing are for the author to perform, (or a nominated representative with the author present). However, the "performance" category tends to contain lots of items by long dead, mainly Victorian, authors. Come along and do it! I occassionally perform items written by my Owd Dad. Don't forget, an author never "dies" until the last person performs his work!

Good morning everyone! Thought it about time to bring this back to the top. Venue is confirmed along with support from local council arts dept. Entries and expressions of interest for competitions and concert have started to arrive. We are looking for enthusiasts and performers of England's local dialects who would enjoy spending a day with like-minded souls from across the Country. If you are, or know, one of these, contact me here or at www.thelancashiresociety.org.uk, or see me or any member of the committee at Saddleworth, Sidmouth, Whitby or Fylde and other places over the summer.

Howdo everybody! I've just had a great time at Sidmouth and met native speakers from Devon, Somerset, Hampshire,Isle of Wight, Gloucestershire and a real Cockney who can do it!! There's a great deal of latent interest in this subject and now we have a focal point I fancy some will be raiding the dusty depths of their local libraries searching out their own Victorian dialect writings and bringing them back to life.

This years event looks set to be better than ever and then we will need individuals or organisations around the country willing to organise future gatherings in a different area each year. A truly National Celebration of English Dialects!

Just got in after a wonderful evening; I'm sorry I didn't manage to see the afternoon competition where apparently Sid won two out of the three trophies! There was such a rich variety to savour with so many different accents and dialects; I didn't catch the names of all the performers so I hope Sid will be along to give credit to everyone. But Sid above all deserves congratulations, not only for his performance but also for organising and hosting this. Thanks also to Jim Causley for coming all the way from Devon to support the event. I'm already looking forward to next year's meeting which the East Lincolnshire Dialect Society intend to host in Louth.

The afternoon competitions were held in good humour with the performance category attracting 17 entries!!

Jim Causley was in fine form finishing off the evening concert.His set included a glorious rendition of Honiton Lace.

As far as next year is concerned even as a lover of the Lake District the Lincolnshire Wolds are beautiful and not flat at all!!

I hope Lincolnshire 2011 in Louth does materialise. If not it is Northumberland in 2012.

We were really pleased with how well the day went. It started off with the professor of sociolinguistics at Lancaster University, Paul Kerswill, giving a talk about 'London's multicultural cockney: the new voice of the nation', which provoked a lot of discussion!

The three competitions all had a very high standard of entrants with competitors from Lancs, East Lincs, Devon, Cumbria, Durham (John Routledge) and the Black Country. The first competition for writing in any English dialect, was won by Dave Reader (Mrs Scarecrow's husband, I think???) from the Black Country. The second, for writing in Lancashire Dialect, was won by our own Sid Calderbank, and the third, for dialect performance, was again won by Sid... No money changed hands - allegedly!

The evening concert was also excellent, with entrants, competition winners and guest Harry Cowgill, Trio Threlfall and Jim Causley taking part.

Next year, the Dialect Day may be stepping out of Lancashire for the first time as the East Lincolnshire Far Weltered group would like to host it.

Thank you to everyone who took part as competitor, helper or audience.

Bringing this back to life for 2011.
This year's event will be in Louth, Lincolnshire on Sat 22nd October hosted and organised by the East Lincolnshire Dialect Society. This will coincide with the town's Victorian Weekend so plenty to do Sunday for those that stay over. Details on "Far Weltered" website for audience, competitors and performers. Next year (2012) will be in Northumberland hosted by the Northumbrian Language Society.

A great opportunity to celebrate all our regional dialects in one annual event, last year was a great day out. We'll be looking down south for hosts for 2013 - any active Societies or committed individuals interested should get in touch.

Perhaps someone should advise a certain Headmistress of a school in Manchester who is not too keen on local acsents. She is trying to get the young children to 'talk "proper English"'. Shame, it's the local acsents that make it so much fun, especially when meeting people for the first time.


Some people cannot see that variety is the spice of life.

Exeter 19 Oct sounds like fun.
