We’ve had a great tour in conjunction with Rural Arts ‘On Tour’ covering North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley. First off was East Cowton, where we had a very warm welcome, followed by Pickering Memorial Hall and Loftus Town Hall, (nice singing and impromptu percussion at both venues!) Welburn Village Hall (75 people in the audience! A great night!), Kilburn Village Institute (we met some local musicians and learnt about “Mousy Thompson” and, again, were given a fantastic welcome) and a great finish to the tour in Greatham; we were told all about the local Greatham Feast that involves a competition to see who can throw a sheaf of wheat the highest!
