The wonderful
Dickens Festival begins this Saturday! Morrigan will be singing on Sunday 4th Dec from 10am until 4pm and taking part in the parades. If you haven't been before this is English culture at its very best. Thousands of people, lots of beer, cider, mead and interesting food from the stalls, fake snow and much Victoriana. Loads of bands of all kinds, morris dancing and fantastic costumes.

Do come along - it is an experience

Morrigan will also be live on BBC Radio Kent Folk Show at 9pm on Sunday 4th

Best of luck - we 'did' the Dickens fest for several years as Street Entertainment , and noticed over the last three we were awared that the number of quality acts reduced each year , until finally we were also reduced , due I believe to a lack of funding by Medway !

It IS a good day out though

This will be our second year there and luckily funding doesn't seem to be an issue! May it continue! We also do Sweeps in May.

Rags & Tatters in the persons of Henry & Rosie, sometimes joined by Steve Harding, always used to do the Dickens Festival as Street entertainers, on a Fee plus collection basis.
Whilst it was usually a good and enjoyable day out, the problem was we were being increasingly given allotted and timed performance spots, sometimes at opposite ends of the town without adequate time to travel between them, carrying instruments and props and fighting our way through the ever increasing crowds.
Coupled with the fact that we would arrive at an appointed spot only to find a non booked performer occupying it or very close, meaning we had to then go in search of an alternative spot. All this meant we were often not where we were supposed to be at the time we were supposed to be there !!and that our performances were sometimes less polished than we would have liked.
Hopefully these problems have been addressed in the intervening years, its certainly a colourful and entertaining event from the "customers" point of view, but was sometimes less than enjoyable from the point of view of the entertainer especially on a wet or cold day !!.

I guess we are lucky in that we have always had timed stage performances that we are paid to do plus the parades and have a performers bolt hole to warm up in and get some food
