Sunday 9th May  Eileen McGann with David K  Eileen McGann is one of North America's finest contemporary songwriters. Her voice is as clear as a lark but has the strength of an eagle and she is an outstanding singer of Traditional Celtic music.  Eileen is the ultimate musical conundrum, the eco-warrior, conscious of the issues of today, but not intimidated by traditional ballads of yesterday. Her songs paint pictures, tell stories and poke fun at life's absurdities.  Eileen tours with acclaimed multi-instrumentalist sideman David K., on Irish bouzouki, bass, National tri-cone and harmony vocals.
Admission £6 (members £4).
 Under 18s free. 

Sunday 23rd May - Les Barker
Internationally acclaimed poet Les Barker takes us into his weird and wonderful world of parody, poetry and music. Funny, witty, seriously silly - but always brilliant!                                     
Admission £6 (members £4)

CHAILEY PRIMARY SCHOOLS CLUSTER TO HOLD A TRADITIONAL DANCE FESTIVAL May 21st 2010
 
The Chailey cluster of primary schools are holding a traditional dance festival on 21st May 2010 at the Plumpton Racecourse. 
All nine schools in the cluster will take part involving some two to three hundred children. The event starts at midday.

South East Folk Arts Network believes that all children should know about our folk art heritage and since early January the schools have been learning the traditional dances of England. The tutors have been SEFAN, Ditchling Morris, staff members from Plumpton Primary School and Traditional Arts Development South East (TRADS). The dances include all forms of Morris dance, Maypole and social dancing - and no more than two schools will perform the same style.

The day will end with a traditional Ceilidh in Plumpton Village Hall with local band, The Unreel Ceilidh Band.

SEFANís Patron Shirley Collins MBE will be attending during the day.

The whole event, including tuition, the festival and ceilidh, is sponsored by Sussex Community Foundation Grassroots Grants through SEFAN, Ditchling Morris and the Plumpton Racecourse. 

SEFAN also received a kind donation from the Estate of the late Mr. George Pheby for this project

For further information contact SEFAN through J.Bacon (Trustee) on 01273 843938, or Festival Director Dave Johns at Plumpton Primary School on 01273 890338.

Tickets for the Ceilidh can be obtained from Plumpton Primary School.
