OK , Hands up those that noticed that the daily blog was started one month ago and has only one post in it! However we'll have another go with a barrage of stuff for you over the coming days and weeks running up to the festival.
First up is the news that the festival was massively represented at the recent Queens Jubilee event in Salisbury Cathedral ground on May 1st. Literally thousands of people got to see traditional music, Morris, mumming and a slice of our English heritage that we love so much,.
Hopefully this will turn itself into ticket sales , not only for the festival, but to other folk events round wiltshire too. here are a couple of pictures of the event.
