Theresa had one of her songs sung for her at the Sussex Sing on Saturday where there were quite a few of her Sussex Shellback friends.
Sorry not to make the funeral, but she will be remembered for a very long time.
The sing "up there" is getting too many good 'uns at the moment.

I agree with both Jim that a singaround in honour of Theresa is an eminent idea and I suspect will be actively supported by Ali O'Brian for Saddleworth FF.

Vaughan's suggestion (Snuffy) is also something I would support.

Bretforton sounds good (and the barn has a good sound). I would be interested.
I also have an additional suggestion.
Whatever date / venue is decided upon we are not all going to be able to make it. So Yes to a Memorial Concert but why not a lot of others does as well.
For the rest of this year why don't we all remember Theresa in the way she would like best. At EVERY festival we have connections with, let's persuade the organisers to nominate one of the Sing-a-Rounds as the "Theresa Tooley Memorial Sing-a-Round" and let's all sing our favourite songs that we sang with T. That way every-one can join in somewhere.
Pass the thought on.
Jim

There must be somewhere a bit more central although I can't think of any 'off the top of my head'. Oh there's Norwell but the pub's a bit small.
The weekend of the 9th April is Banbury Song weekend - perhaps something could happen there - someone would need to contact Merek and Dary. However it would be good to organise a whole weekend for Theresa. I'm sure Ugthorpe Lodge near Whitby would love to host a weekend but it's a bit too far north presumably. Or perhaps Alcester's song Weekend venue would suit?
How about Preston, Angie and Ken's venue, not the school but the pub where's the 4 Fools is this year?
Any other ideas?

Surreysinger,

Not really, but that's not what Mrs Duck asked for: I merely supplied one possible answer to her specific request. Feel free to investigate alternative venues - the more the better.

Bus timetable for Bretforton. There are railway stations at Honeybourne (2.5miles) and Evesham (5.5 miles).

For B&B etc Google "B&B Bretforton" or "hotel Bretforton" or "inn Bretforton" etc

Looks lovely. However, two things occur to me. Firstly,does it have public transport links of a decent nature nearby. Secondly, is the location one which has a good supply of B&B accommodation close by ? Not all of us have cars, or would wish to camp.

At the Wassail tonight I had a word with Nigel at the Fleece Inn, Bretforton, where Teresa sang on a couple of Shellbacks Cookley weekend tours, and also at Foxtrot weekends. The pub has camping facilities and a tithebarn for singing. Nigel would be more than willing to host it if a suitable weekend is available (it's in demand for weddings, etc).

PM me for contact details if you want to talk dates with Nigel

Good thought Jane. It was a bit of both that stopped my journey - but a Midland weekend gathering should be do-able... is the post Easter W'end any good?? Any takers for Sat 10 Apr?? Sorry NO venue idea as I'm not familiar with the area - but near the M1 would be brill.

I think it was the weather rather than the distance that prevented some folk from getting to the funeral. If a memorial day/weekend is to be arranged I think it is important that it be as central as possible rather than at one end of the country or another. Somewhere in the Midlands would probably be the best solution. If anyone knows a field with a pub in that area that would allow lots of folkies to descend at a reasonable cost and make a full weekend of it that could be the answer.

A great turnout for a great lady. We hardly felt the cold yesterday in the warmth of affection for that "grand old lady of music" From Opera to Folk by way of all the steps in between she was surely one of the great entertainers. It was hard to get through the service without tearing-up at so many many memories of her.
Well at least the "Choir Invisible" will have at least one good singer now! and speaking from personal experience she will improve the performance of all those that sing with her there.
"Go for it T!"

What a memorable day for such a memorable lady, I only Knew Theresa for 4 years, but will remember her for the rest of my life. I'm not a member of the 'folk community' but certainly felt one yesterday, the singing was wonderful, and thanks Marie for enabling me to get there.

Would love to attend any memorial celebration, and buy the CD if it's made.

God Bless you all

It was a good day. A good turn out despite the weather, I think between 100 and 120 of us. Once the service had started if I caught sight of the funeral directors they had smiles on their faces. Proof that it was a celebration of a life.
I wish I had been able to stay for the sing around.

Like so many others, I just wasn't able to make it, but took time out to remember.

So many memories of that irrepressible little bundle of energy: too many to list them all, but especially with the Shellbacks in the States, and that mega-sing in the bar at Banbury (2002?) with the Shells, the Laners, etc. And here in Alcester, Theresa leading "Circle of the Sun" when one of the firemen's children was christened at the Festival church service.

A warm (if snowy) and wonderful send off to an old and dear friend

Tears of sadness were replaced with laughter as Theresa's coffin was carried out of the crematorium to Gracie Fields Lankie tones singing 'Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye'

Songs and personal stories in the club afterwards.

'So here's to you, and our time together.
I will share with you a parting glass,
And bid adieu with some smile and laughter,
Our time apart will be short, and pass.'

Thanks to all who helped to make this a tribute to a life that touched so many others

Hi folks

Info for anyone else interested in a ride from Leeds Train Station:

Will be picking up between 10.30-11.00. As its such a big place, lets agree to meet away from the meetng place. Head L after exiting the ticket check point, go down the slope past the ticket purchasing windows (staying within the train station). On the L-hand side is McDonalds and Subways, and on the R-hand side is window display of bridal wear. There is some seating between, and I shall meet folks there who have not been in touch. We shall be leaving promotely at 11am

By going so early, this will allow 90mins for the journey, plus a chance to get a warm drink / tidy up before heading to the funeral.

Also it hopefully allow enough time in case there are any accidents.

My number is 0772 723 1990
