Subject: Old Fashioned Night Out, 31st March 2012


The Frittenden Old Fashioned Night Out will again take place this year - and the date is the 31st March 2012.


This follows a tremendous evening of old-fashioned dancing, songs and party games last year. The formula for 2012 is largely unchanged: the evening will have the same mixture of entertainments as last time, with the multi-talented Rosie Davis calling to music provided by the Horsmonden Traditional Music Class and friends, and songs from a variety of invited guests. 


The only real difference is that this time we're holding it in the Bell & Jorrocks function room, which we think will be cosier?


As last year, formal attire is encouraged (but optional).


Earlier in the day we'll have the usual Frittenden-style traditional, old fashioned and entertaining session in the bar, followed by a mixed session and concert on the theme of Sea, Ships and Sailors with weekend guests, who include Frittenden regulars Andy Turner, Annie Dearman and Steve Harrison, and sea-song specialist Chris Roche. Rosie has kindly promised to chip in with a Sailor's Hornpipe!


In the late morning and early we'll also have a workshop in which Rosie will teach some of the old fashioned dances she'll be calling in the evening.


We'll post more details and a timetable as they become available.
