A Barnes Supper
A Festive Feast of Dorset Fayre

Dialect poet William Barnes relished the country dances, folksongs and carols of Dorset, and often wrote about community celebrations, where music was a key part of the proceedings.

Alongside a feast of local fayre, The Ridgeway Singers and Band led by Tim Laycock and Phil Humphries will perform traditional songs collected across the County by the Hammond brothers, play dance tunes from the repertoire of Blackmore Vale fiddler Benjamin Rose, perform a special two part arrangement of Barnes' Linden Lea and recite some of the poems that keep alive the rich dialect of Dorset.

Tickets include a light Dorset supper served throughout the performance
