‘A Celebration of Somerset Day’. 

Gibby Swaine, Sue Watts and The Stoggy Men along with Tom Mayberry (CE of Heritage SW).

The history and heritage of Somerset will be celebrated in a specially extended hour long concert. Gibby Swaine and Sue Watts have been making music together for many years and have invited The Stoggy Men, from Stogumber, to join in a programme that will explore the wealth of traditional Somerset music. Tom Mayberry will take us back to 878 with an explanation of why the day is so significant for Somerset and there will be some other appropriate poetry and prose readings. There might even be some surprise visitors but to find out who they are you will have to be there. Please save the date and come and enjoy the fun.

Doors open at 12 noon and cold drinks will be served before the start of the concert.

Retiring collection in aid of Halseway Manor, National Centre for Folk Arts, and St John’s Church.
