Another interruption to blogging as I've just been on my annual pilgrimage to Whitby Folk Week. One of the highlights of my year - a lovely place just to wander around anyway, and during Folk Week lots of great entertainment. We were even treated this year to a breathtaking display by the Red Arrows as Folk Week overlapped with Whitby Regatta. As someone who barely understands how planes fly at all, flying upside down just confused me!
Continuing the theme I started last year of trying to illustrate the great variety of English traditional dance (it's not all bells and hankies!), this year I give you the Flag and Bone Gang. A vibrant team of black and red, face veils, clicking bones and waving flags.
So, now it's back to work - most emails have now been read or deleted and the preparations for the new academic year start in earnest. Should be back to blogging regularly now as there's lots happening.
