As an experiment, this year we are splitting the traditional Annual Gathering into a less formal Folk Assembly in July and a formal AGM in September.
This years Folk Assembly will be at the Youlbury Scout Centre in Oxford from the 8-10 July. It will be a gathering of Woodcraft Folk members from all over the country where we'll share skills, discuss the things that matter to us and enjoy each others company.
