Subject: Morpeth Gathering. Worth Going To?

I've been meaning to tackle the Morpeth Gathering (10th 12th April 2015) for a number of years now. This year it looks like I can actually make it. Unfortunately, the MG website is not very informative.

Would anyone care to offer an unbiased opinion as to whether a dyed in the wool traddie like me would find it worth visiting?

Well - we won't be there this year (hopefully next!) but it's ALWAYS worth going to.

Fred,

Never been

Many of these do's are on a relatively short time to justify travelling great distances.

Consequently I only attend lengthier events which have plenty sessions

Me & gang'll be going here:https://www.facebook.com/events/859175644125129/
at Easter.

Or here: detail.cfm?messages__Message_ID=3689412


5+ days continuous folking about, you might enjoy!

Then if you've any stamina left, you could go to Morpeth the week after!

I've been several times, enjoyed singarounds, entered competions, performed in the evening concert and generally enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. There are clog dancing classes, interesting stuff going on in the piping centre, and a lot more. The town seems to be thriving and is certainly populated with warm and welcoming people. One of my most treasured trophies came from there - I won the Border ballad competition and the shield is displayed prominently in my home. It says 'BALLED'.

Brilliant. I think a photograph of your BALLED trophy should be posted on the Facebook Northumbrian Gathering Page ASAP!

If you like Bob Fox he's on at the Morpeth Gathering including a 'meet Bob Fox' session.
Also if you want to make your own bagpipe bags, there's a workshop for that too
