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 (£18) include a light Dorset supper served throughout the performance, with produce from local producers BV Dairy, Dorset Blue Vinny & Dike & Son. Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the county’s touring arts charity.

To coincide with Valentine’s Day and the Spring half-term holidays, Dorset Food & Drink (DF&D) are organising a 15 day long celebration of all the great food and drink from right here in the county. This will be a fantastic opportunity for all of us to show our love for our favourites amongst the delicious foodstuffs and libations created by our Dorset neighbours – and hopefully find some new tastes and tipples with which to start a relationship!
