 Keswick Victorian Fair December 5th 2021

Well, it's been nearly 2 years since the girls donned their team kit and clogs and danced out in public, but here we are at last, giving it welly at Keswick's Traditional Victorian Fair. We've missed it so much! 

The weather gods were kind: well, at least it was bright and dry, but oh lordy it was cold! We poor musicians suffered numb fingers as we bravely played on.

I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome Alison Thomson to our ranks. She has recently joined us as a dancer, but having hurt her foot, her first public appearance has been as a musician. She's a mean flautist, and will be useful in both camps as time goes on. Nice to have you with us Alison! (And please note that there is now room for much confusion. New Alison  has ONE L, while longer-established Allison [better known as Ally] had TWO LLs.)

Brian kindly took some photos and videos. You can find the rest of them on Flickr at this link:

Hope to see some of our fans on New Year's Day, if we can round up enough dancers! Keep an eye on our Diary page for more info.
