I thought I'd go and look at The Cider and Song Festival at The Museum of East Anglian Rural Life in Stowmarket
I didn't go round the whole museum as I've been round lots of times and I didn't want to risk the back ache returning
Then I had a wander round the rest of the museum
This building below is The Boby Building was one of the first moved here, it came from Bury St Edmunds I think - if I'm remembering correctly. Unfortunately they were having a special unveiling of their restored traction engine with only "important people" allowed through the barriers.This building is full of all the old crafts - like coopering and a farrier and lots of other things that I've seen but can't remember. I didn't really want to hang around for half an hour so went and looked at the other buildings on site
I could have stayed longer and perhaps if I wasn't on my own maybe I would have done. Some things are better with company.
After a final look round the craft fair I went home for a late lunch
Son and DIL went with friends to the Saturday evening cider and song festival proper where there were 40 different ciders to try with lots of different folk bands. Needless to say they had booked a taxi home!
