The Reunion and Annual General Meeting of The Folk Camps Society Limited will take place on Saturday 18th November 2017 in Toddington.
The Reunion is an all day event, see programme below. It is a chance to meet up with friends you met at Folk Camp this year, or those you missed this year but want to see again. You can come to as much or as little of the day as you want. There are workshops in the daytime, a ceilidh in the evening, and the official business of the AGM in the afternoon.
You will also be able to book your 2018 Folk Camps at the reunion, where bookings will open face to face with Sarah Richardson, our Administration Manager.
