Carneval In Lockdown


Dear Folkies, 

there is not a lot currently happening and it is certainly the quietest Carnival that I have ever experienced.

Even the annual two-day Royal Shrovetide Football match in Ashbourne in Derbyshire fell victim to, and was cancelled due to, COVID-19:

Such a shame, that used to be one of the few places in England where the pubs were open all day long before licencing laws were eased!

Ashbourne in the very heart of English is a beautiful country market town and is certainly a town I loved so well and still do.

Despite the current restrictions due to COVID-19 and the lockdown, one can still find the odd oasis of music going on despite the odds, and here is one such from folk clubber Sebastion Landwehr

    1. The way things are progressing with the easing of the COVID-19 movement restrictions, especially in the UK, the Royal Shrovetide Football match in Ashbourne could very well be on during carneval time in 2022. If you travel by train to Derby or by plane to East Midlands Airport, Ashbourne is reachable in less than an hour by bus from the former or hire car from the latter.It should be on everyone's bucket list Jan!
