What The Ashes Did Next
Just to remind you all that The Ashes this year take place on 22nd -25th August, and promises to be the most fabulous ever. The usual galaxy of stars, cricket action, and quaint pastoral pursuits will be supplemented this year by all manner of subversive activities, including an attempt by The Dear Leader to teach young people to play music, something that is frowned upon in a day and age in which art is something that was done by sacred cows thirty years ago, and has been replaced in the Nation’s hearts by a culture of ‘heritage’
Monday sees the return of the great Blyth Power fete, so anyone wanting to do their own stall please please do!
On Saturday and Sunday mornings 9-11am Comrade Sir Henry will be running workshops ranging from Juggling to Comedy Songwriting to Ceilidh and Barndancing in the second marquee. Everyone welcome.
Alongside these workshops, Joseph will be organising music sessions for children also in the second marquee. Any other musicians who would like to get involved please do come and help out.
Running order for the weekend looks something a little like this:
