This years event will take place on Saturday 22nd October at the British Legion in Louth, Lincolnshire hosted by the East Lincolnshire Dialect Society (Far Welter'd). Afternoon competitions, with trophies, for writing and performing in any English Dialect followed by evening concert. Sunday is the town's Victorian Fayre - should be good. 2012 will be in Northumberland, 2013 in Devon, see you there!

Is this "Dialects of the english language", or "Dialects of England"?

DIALECT - "a form of speech or language peculiar to a limited district or people". PEDANT - "one who makes a pretentious show of book-learning". CRAZY - " (never mind)
