Hartley Morris Men's

Hartley Ale, Ring Meeting No 357

8th-10th June 2018


In customary fashion the festivities will be based in our adopted home village of Wrotham, Kent with all beer in the village hall free
for participants from 7pm Friday onwards.  (Google post code TN15 7AB to see where to find it).

Indoor camping accommodation will be provided with ample hot showers and there will be separate quarters for female musicians.  Secure outdoor camping and standing for caravans and campervans will also be available.


After settling in on Friday evening a hot supper will be served in the Village Hall followed by the usual singing/music sessions in the local pubs.

On Saturday after a full English breakfast, there will be two tours of the Kent countryside in vintage buses/coaches incorporating visits to independent breweries, pubs and tourist attractions, returning to Wrotham for the evening Feast prepared by our regular professional chef.

After breakfast on Sunday morning there will be time to pack before moving on to the nearby town of Tonbridge for a massed display on the magnificent Castle Lawn.  There is to be no organised Church service before the massed display, instead we are arranging for sides to dance at locations around the town.

Sunday lunch will be taken in a pub, or perhaps spend a leisurely hour or two on the River Medway or riding on the miniature steam railway.

The cost of the meeting will be £79.  This includes hot supper and free beer from 7pm Friday, indoor/outdoor camping with hot showers; full cooked breakfast, tours, lunch and Feast on Saturday plus full cooked breakfast and lunch on Sunday.
