  1. This years event did not dissapoint. The band lead the parade starting on time followed by many of the local children in fancy dress with thier parents and friends. We played around the village proclaiming that the fate was starting. By the time we reached the field we had most of the village in tow.

    The weather was great sunshine all day. The main arena was packed with entertainment throughout the day and we played mid afternoon to a most appreciative crowd.

    Great day out for all of us

  2. Wow! for a man who is never short of words, what a great weekend. If you have never been to Blists Hill Victorian Town, you should. The place is huge, There is like a posh bit at the top with shops and a real pub. You then work down hill to the steel works. Past the steel works to the poor housing. There is a house there smaller than my shed where 2 adults and 8 children lived.

    The staff are very friendly and helpfull and encourage visiters to take in the whole experiance.

    We played all three days of the Bank Holiday and what a pleasure it was. Twice each day we played on the green where the main entertainment was and the crowd joined in with singing, dancing and rapterous applause. We even played encores. We also had a roving minstrel commission so played many times in many places drawing the crowds where ever we played, enjoying great appreciation.
