Hardy Ceilidh with Tatterdemalion

Dance, song, story and poetry in the steps of Thomas Hardy

Space is available on this event! :-D

Want a great evening with Tatterdemalion, the band who bring Hardy's Wessex back to vigorous life? See below for lots more about these fine musicians.

A ceilidh is more than just a barn dance. Yes, there will be easy enjoyable dances you can learn from scratch with favourite local caller Angela Laycock.

And yes, this is very sociable dancing - it's not vital to come with a partner. In intervals between the dances, expect songs, poems and stories relating to Thomas Hardy. Host for the evening is Virginia Astley, a writer and singer-songwriter who knows her Thomas Hardy well.

Proceeds support Othona's Four Seasons Studio project.
