2014 Summary

It's been an interesting year this one, we've been off on a few adventures. We can definitely say we've seen more of the halls of Bristol as the room bookings system caught innovatism, and we've very happily brought our colourful whirlwind to all ups and downs and sides of the UK. Highlights have been dancing and singing the sun up in Edinburgh with fellow southern folkies for IVFDF 2014, an ebullient array of festivals in the summer - with room (swept for us, no doubt, by a certain little broom) for some quantum mumming, and a visit to sunny East Anglia just before the start of term. We've met a fantastic amount of new friends, and our side is looking rather bustling with new talents.

Good one Rag, thank you all again. Onwards and even further upwards!

October 2014
As well as running our recriuting stall at UBU FRESH, we have entertained our good friends the morris team from L'Homme Vert, St Pierre-sur-Orthe, and celebrated Hallowe'en at The Cottage Inn in style with the customary seasonal silliness.
