We'll be dancing out in the afternoon:  theme for our kit will be daisies, Frida Kahlo and Death Himself.

Hannah to meet Oakenhoof at 1.30 at the side/back door of the Golden Lion to help set up, agree performance spot. 

2pm - Oakenhoof kick off the event with an opening set of something upbeat and jolly. A welcoming beginning. 20mins set

2-3pm - Stalls, crafts, bubbles, bunting, tea and sympathy, fancy dress making - all ongoing throughout.

3pm - Oakenhoof do another set, more people will be there by then. Aiming to raise spirits and gather everyone close. 20 min set (then head off to the Church to open up for Jolly Jock concert).

3.40 - Boats and monks - the releasing of the boats. Orchestrated by Mary? Sue? 

4pm - close. 

Mary also pointed out that there may be a load of our friends about town that afternoon in readiness for the Jolly Jock Tribulation concert. If you think any of them would also like to be part of this event, play something, juggle, dance, whatever it is they do - we'd love to have them there doing their thing. Please pass on any names of people I could contact as the more the merrier. 

Then at 4.00- 6.00 Oakenhoof are hosting a Jolly Jock memorial session at the Unitarian Church.  Humorous Songs, dancing, games, fun and ashes to celebrate the wonderful Jolly Jock.  Lots of ideas for this already and we'd love to hear more. 

Then back to the Boro to meet Bobbie for a Eurovision Song Contest extraviganza!
