Mr Happy Easter 2018 - Folk Up the Moors (17) RE: Easter 2018 - Folk Up the Moors 23 Mar 18


During the gathering, there'll be chances to spot many famous but incognito mystery guests.

Some of these include the elusive & rarely glimpsed a cappella ensemble; The Heartsouls, whose close harmony arrangements can be experienced in one of their special presentations of 'Our Sing About' - not to be missed!

There'll also be fleeting sightings of the Myserichords performing some of their mad wriggles - a popular pastime amongst courting couples in the 15th century. You've never seen anything like it!

In addition, darting about hither & thither, will be Mr Happy & the Gloom Band, ably demonstrating how traditional folksongs & tunes should be appropriately enacted, ie, no laughing or smiling nor any displays of enjoyment such as rhythmic swaying, giggles or titters - only kidding!! ;-)
It's not long now [as the actress said to the bishop] I'll get me coat!

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CAMPERS: DRINKING WATER
The pub's water has a slight yellowish tinge as it comes from its own underground well but is perfectly safe to drink and the well water is tested regularly by Welsh Water to ensure its quality.

Latest news from Leon Gierke, the landlord at The Sportsmans Arms Inn.

The new gate for the camp field is in now, so although the entrance way will be as before, the exit will be via the new gate, situated downhill & onto the road.
This should alleviate the difficulties experienced last year in getting vehicles & caravans off the site.

Paula Roscoe It doesn't really say who is playing, only what type and three rooms to choose. We have a daughter with autism and it is her birthday weekend - sadly for us, we can't just turn up and hope there is someone playing or there is plenty to keep her engaged...See more
