As many of you will know, Old Hall in East Bergholt has been a community since 1974 and hosted 4 fairs: Fire (1979), Moon (1980), Rainbow (1981) and Earth (1982). We were invited to take the exhibition there as part of a Ceilidh organised by resident Dan Wheals, yet again it was like going home for the Archive!
The Fairs Archive’s yurt was set up in the chapel, (now deconsecrated) and fitted perfectly in the area that once contained the altar below an ancient wall painting still resplendent with gold foil. We all jigged the night away to the SOAS Ceilidh band “fiddling in support of refugees”. Everyone had a wonderful time and Old Hall proved to be welcoming and generous hosts.
With love and light,
The Fairs Archive
