Friendship Festival 2014

Wednesday, 26 March 2014

On Sunday 23rd March, Walton on Thames Folk were joined by members from Knaphill, New Malden, Spelthorne and Tolworth & Kingston districts in what it is hoped will be the first of many future joint activities.

Members participated in a variety of workshops including Circus Skills, Magic, Music & Song, Biscuit Decorating, Face Painting and various Art and Craft activities.

The festival represented the start of a project in support of the Right to Refuge campaign in which we aim to raise awareness and understanding of the difficulties encountered by refugees in Britain and other parts of the world.

During the rest of the year we hope to collect clothes and toys for refugee children and to invite some of them to our activities, including a camp.

At the end of the festival when the children were asked if they would like us to hold another one next year there was a resounding "Yes!"
