THE BRIAN LAWTON LEGACY PROJECT.
As mentioned in recent newsletters, this is an ongoing project during the next 12 months concerning photographs taken by Brian Lawton which cover much of the history of folk music and folk festivals in West Yorkshire. It’swell worth visiting the website http://www.brianlawtonproject.org.uk, to which new material is being added on a regular basis.
IMPORTANT: THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGING - RELENTLESS MONTHLY REMINDER: The change is looming....
Having considered the response to the proposal for earlier start/finish times, the committee has decided to implement a starting time for guest nights of 8 pm to finish at 10.30 pm, starting in September 2018.
