Autumn Gather 2021

The Autumn Gather 2021 is moving to a new location. It will now be held from 23rd to 27th September at Linden Top, Rutland Water, Rutland, Leicestershire. Directions will be in Out and About and the Folk Group Newsletter nearer the time.

Rutland Water is the large reservoir set in 4,200 acres of open countryside, with attractive stone villages close by. There is plenty to do – from walking and cycling to fishing and water sports – or how about a visit to the fantastic nature reserve managed by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust, and home to the Rutland Osprey project.

The hall has been booked for dances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with an open meeting Saturday afternoon.
