Future TSF meetings

The TSF/EFDSS Broadside Day for 2016 will take place on 20 February. As Cecil Sharp House will be undergoing major refurbishment we are taking the opportunity to have a meeting in Manchester, and important centre of broadside production in the Nineteenth Century. Our venue will be Chetham's Library (Long Millgate, M3 1SB). More details of the event can be found on the VWML website and a timed programme can be found here.

Further meetings for 2016 will be announced soon.

Please make sure that you have these dates in your diary!
