Another great wedding….

Back in September we played at a lovely wedding at St Elizabeth’s House in Plympton near Plymouth. The lovely Louise and James, who also happen to be superb historic dancers invited us to be part of their special day…and very special it was too. Check out their dance group on our links page.

Next on the cards? A couple of gigs at Warwick Castle, then the annually brilliant Robin Hood Festival at Nottingham Castle and then Aston Hall by Candlelight with Diabolus in Musica. Bring it on!

 

 

Archery and the odd gig too!

Pheon have been busy offering fun have a go archery at Hartlebury  Castle nr. Kidderminster and The Commandery in Worcester. Only one more week to go so come along! Also, both Pheon and A Merrie Noyse will at The Commandery on Bank Holiday Monday 26th August, Bromyard Festival and Warwick Castle on 31st August. Phew…busy! Great, isn’t it!

A busy summer of Archery, Music and fun!

What a busy summer we have had so far. Great event in Kent for “Faversham in the Making” – a brilliantly organised and interesting event for all ages; Berkeley Castle Skirmish – an event buzzing with people, re-enactors, entertainers and traders and a full week of Have-a-go-Archery at Powderham Castle too – phew!

School fun in London and Shropshire

Two great days had by us in schools in London and Shropshire last week. Wonderful children and passionate staff helped to make our visits memorable… I think they liked us:

Dear Sue,

Thank you so much for the wonderful day you and Barry made for us when you performed at Lower Heath C. E. Primary School. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the day from the youngest child to the oldest member of staff (me!). The children all enjoyed the opportunity to join in the songs and dances and were delighted to be able to play their recorders as an accompaniment to some of your music. Thank you so much for being so adaptable and making it possible for them to feel part of the music. The children remember the “Tudor” words that you taught them and were most impressed by your instruments; the crumhorn seemed to be a favourite! The staff also enjoyed the whole day and very much and appreciated the way that you kept the children’s attention, and your humour!

Once again, thank-you for a wonderful day.

Best Wishes,

Dian

Lovely sunny day at Grange Court

We have had a lovely sunny day at Grange Court in Leominster. A great atmosphere and lovely people. What a fabulous project too – the building looks great. I think they liked us!

Hi Sue,
Thank you so much for being part of our Family Day on Saturday. You really set the ambience and we have received some great feedback about you all. You were fantastic!

Polly Robinson – Heritage Development Officer, Grange Court

Let’s hope we can return some time!

 

Pheon Archery return to Hoghton Tower

Just returned from a great weekend at Hoghton Tower, Lancashire from our second have-a-go-archery weekend. Lovely visitors, if it did turn a tad damp n Monday! Hey ho – typical Bank Holiday weather. Hoghton is a fascinating property – check it out and visit!

Lostfest hits the spot

What a fab day we had at Lostfest in Lostwithiel, Cornwall. Great musicians all round, stalls, events around the town and much, much more! A really great festival to go to if you find yourself in Cornwall in May. Nice comments from the organisers too :

Very many thanks for helping to make this year’s LostFest such a success. Without so many performers giving so generously of their time, there would be no LostFest.

You will be pleased to hear that I had several folks who singled out your group for praise. I wish my duties had let me hear more of your performance.

D. Guiterman, Entertainment organiser.

Let’s hope we get to make a return trip next year! 🙂

Tudor days for Schools

Our Tudor Music and Dance schools package is proving popular. We will be visiting Surrey and Shropshire soon for full days of Tudor fun and frivolity. Should be good fun for all!
