2. In Search of Morris Sides
Tenderden Folk Festival will run this year from Friday 5 – Sunday 7 October. As usual all sides are welcome to come and dance around the town on both Saturday and Sunday. Sides are also encouraged to take part in the procession on Saturday and are welcome to take part in a more formal display if they wish. Saturday will remain the main day but there are still plenty of opportunities for mores ides to stay on for Sunday so why not make a weekend of it. If your team can only come on Sunday, you are more than welcome to do so. Please pass this on to anyone else you think may be interested. This is a very popular event so early subscription is strongly recommended.
