Performers and musicians from Priston Jubilee and Tatters and Tails

The eleventh date on the Grand Jubilee Tour continued at the Somerset Wagon in Chilcompton with Tatters and Tails, a brand new border side from Bath.

Performers from Priston Jubilee and Mr Wilkins' Shilling

At the half-way mark, number seven in our Grand Diamond Jubilee Tour, we were joined by Mr Wilkins’ Shilling very close to home, at the newly re-opened Wheatsheaf at the top of Corston Hill. From where we were dancing, we also got a good view of a couple of the linseed Olympic rings, which a […]
