On 26th January 2019 Judith De Witt resigned as Director of Eastbourne International Folkdance Festival because of ill health. We wish to thank her for getting us this far. Without her, Eastbourne 2019 would certainly not be happening.
We're very pleased that Mecki Testroet has now agreed to be Chairman. Mecki has in her time run both the Ticketing and the International side of the festival, and has a good understanding of how the various parts of the festival work.
The committee: Mecki Testroet (Chairman), Monty Crook (Ticketing), Brian Stanton (Finance Director) and Isabel Castle (Steward Co-ordinator) are sorting through the tasks that need to be carried out to facilitate a successful 2019 festival.
We have arranged the programme and it has now been published on the website — click the Programme button.
The 2019 festival will go ahead as planned. However for 2020 we need volunteers for the post of Steward Co-ordinator and Publicity Manager or Ticketing — Monty will do one of these jobs but would prefer not to do both — to join our committee and spread the workload.
