Dickensian Fayre 2016

Not long to go – less than 2 weeks. Preparations are well on the way. Bad news is Ebor Brass Band have let us down & are unable to entertain us. But GOOD news North York’s County Band have stepped in and will be there on the 3rd December, so come along & see them. The band are touring Spain in the summer to play at open air concerts!!!

Lets hope for drier weather on the 3rd December!!
