Eastbourne International Folkdance Festival 2019
The last EIFF at Eastbourne ran over the May 3rd – 6th weekend and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. I say the last, because next year the festival is being moved to Evesham in Worcestershire under the new name May Heydays . . . at Evesham . . . the Folkdance Festival in the Vale.
You can find out more on the new website, mayheydays.org.uk, http://mayheydays.org.uk/ ,where you will also find pictures from EIFF days including this year’s festival.
Arrangements and programme for next year have been proceeding very well, but the government recently through a spanner in the works by moving next year’s Bank Holiday from Monday May 4th to Friday May 8th – to encourage commemoration of VE Day!
The festival management is actively working to resolve the complications this has thrown up – so go to the website for the latest info.
Again, volunteers are always needed, see: mayheydays.org.uk/stewards.html
For a modest workload you get a full weekend season with indoor camping available and access to all the programme – available to view on : mayheydays.org.uk/programme.html
