I attended the very first Cressing Folk Festival yesterday at the historic Cressing Temple Barns in Essex. A lovely little one-day festival held in wonderful surroundings. Acts included The Wilsons (very inspirational), John Kirkpatrick (in great form), the utterly brilliant Trials of Cato (a must for Cropredy surely?), Fran & Belinda (mother & daughter duo...Fran from Stick in the Wheel) and Terry Hiscock (founding member of Hunter Muskett singing his own superb songs). Hope this becomes an annual event but chatting to the organiser revealed that the event lost money and next year’s event is currently up in the air  Embarrassed Hope it gets the support it needs as this could be a winner!

I was there too, what a beautiful place. The whole day was so lovely, it just lacked food!!  Roll Eyes The problem was it wasn't advertised very well!

Cressing Temple Barns are the oldest standing timber-framed Barns in the world built in the 13th century (c.1220 - 1280) for the Knights Templar
