Preview: Halloween Music Fair @ Cecil Sharp House

Whilst there are many Halloween themed events to attend this weekend but we're rather attracted to the folky, funny, eccentric and villagey goings on at Cecil Sharp House on Sunday afternoon.

There's a blinding afternoon of ace music planned. At least, it sounds amazing even though we don't know any of them.But who wouldn't want to see early music outfit Princes in the Tower whose motto is 'We're here to make you happy. We're here to make you jive. We'll make your party rock like it's 1595'? Or sixties sounding psychedelic folk rock Scouse ladies Stealing Sheep? Or Sisters of Transistors, the Combo Organ Quartet and Ladies Social Club? Check out the line-up. You need it in your Sunday.

Moreover - folksy gigging aside - meet at Cecil Sharp House at 4pm and join a party of revellers going up Primrose Hill where artists and performers - including the fine female Morris Dancing troupe the Belles of London City - will entertain. The group will then process back to the House at sunset, revelling! Dressing up is optional but could be rather fun and there's mask making for the kids and hot cider to get you in the mood.

One Lord Sinclair will be telling fortunes and playing folk bingo too (watch out, he's got a foul mouth). This feels like the turn of the season celebration we've been looking for and not a zombie in sight. See you at the hog roast!

The Halloween Music Fair is on Sunday 30 October, 2-11pm, inc. sunset procession (meet at the venue at 4pm), £15.50 (Children 8-16 £6, Under 8s FREE) at Cecil Sharp House, 2 Regents Park Road, NW1 7AY.
