Friday August 30th to Sunday September 1st 2013

Plans are in progress for this years gathering of musicians, potential musicians and those who just like listening to Irish traditional music. The date is, as usual, the weekend after the bank-holiday, which this year includes the last two days of August. The Mill campsite has unfortunately changed ownership and will not be available this year. I have a feeling that once the new owners have seen what a well behaved, nice bunch of people we all are, we may get it back next year.... we shall just have to wait and see... If all goes to plan, this year\'s campsite will be about the same distance on the other side of the pub. Ignore the campsite location on the map for now, I will update this as soon as the exact location is confirmed. Ivor Harris, the farmer is a sound fellow and responds well to pints of Cheddar Valley cider. He will justifiably insist that his field is treated with respect, and that shut gates remain shut and open gates remain open..... (usual countryside etiquette) and of course any rubbish is cleared up. Now that I know how to update this site, I will do so regularly as things develop. I will try to get a group set up on FaceBook so anybody who has any photos or constructive comments can send them in. Meanwhile,find me on facebook (Antony Comer) Pru
