Come As You Are playfully recontextualises the relationship between writer, performer, audience & participant.

Come to Britrocks Music Festival, Saturday 13th Sept. 2 pm to 7 pm at the Auld Acquaintance Cairn, Gretna

The Britrocks Festival Website Image

Click The Image To Visit The Britrocks Festival Website

According to a message from Rory Stewart MP and Hands Across The Border, this Saturday at the Auld Acquaintance Cairn, Gretna, behind the Old Toll House DG16 5JD. you will be welcome to join the free Britrocks Music Festival, bring a picnic and enjoy some great music. See the Britrocks web page .

The Cairn is now the focal point for people who want a united Britain.

In his latest letter Rory says:

“Dear Friends of Hands Across the Border,

We are 6 days away from a decision which could quite simply destroy our country. We cannot let a country that our ancestors sacrificed for so long to build, simply drift away through apathy, complacency and indifference. Instead, let us prove that when our country was at threat, our citizens were still prepared to stand and work together.

The event will be preceded by poetry readings at one o’clock from our especially commissioned poets: Charlotte Higgins and Magnus Dixon. Charlotte won the poetry society’s 2011 competition and has written a remarkable poem about the cairn. At just thirteen years old Magnus was named the 2013 Foyles Young Poet of the Year. He will read about his identity as a Scot and the referendum.This Saturday, we will gather English, Welsh, Irish and Scots, young and old, in solidarity –with optimism, showing, by our presence at the cairn, what a family of nations can mean.

Then at two o’clock we will host the extraordinary BRITROCKS! free music festival.  We will hear everything from Afro-Jazz act the Waaw Waaws based in Edinburgh to the Opera singer Millie Underwood reflecting the diversity of our union. Other acts include The Alleys, Robby Boyd, Reuben Loftus and Christian Moss.  Take a look at the BRIT ROCKS! website (http://www.britrocks.org/) to find out more details.

Please join us.  Be a cairn-builder. Be a builder of the Union.

Very best wishes, and I very much hope to see you  there,

Rory

Also Rory Stewart MP says:

“on Wednesday 17th, the night before the vote, we will be lighting a ‘Beacon for Britain’ at the Cairn. Everyone is also welcome to join us for our candle-lit vigil from 8 until 10 pm on the night of the 18th as we await the result of the referendum after polls have closed.

Let us unite and save our country!

Very best wishes,

Rory

P.S. Here are some thoughts on the strength and flexibility of Scottish identity: http://bit.ly/1rScf2j

  • locally sourced food and drinks,

Things to do in September: Cumbria’s largest Toy Fair On Sept 29th in Carlisle

There is always a great variety of model vehicles and figures at Carlisle's biannual Toy Fair.

There is always a great variety of model vehicles and figures at Carlisle’s biannual Toy Fair.

Consider visiting Carlisle Toy Fair this year. It could be a very nice day out whether you are an avid toy collector, want to indulge your nostalgia for beloved toys and models that you used to have, or if you’re just looking for something a bit special for someone’s stocking this Christmas.

Or perhaps you have something taking up space and gathering dust in your attic that you’d like to swap or sell? You could also make a useful sum of cash from the contents of your old toy box, especially if you were the kind of child who didn’t put too many dents in your Dinky vehicles or your Hornby locomotives, or give your Action man a Viking funeral.  The chances are reasonably good that someone would be very happy to play with or simply treasure your old toys.

The Carlisle Toy Fair is one of the biggest events in the Northwest for buying, swapping and selling toys. It’s held twice a year in the historic city of Carlisle, bringing together stall holders and toy / model collectors from the North of England, Scotland and the Borders. The railways have always been important to Carlisle and there are always a nice selection of model trains and accessories at the toy fair. Enthusiasts can also explore a range of high quality, collectable vintage and current models, figures and diorama backgrounds in the H&H Borderway Exhibition Hall at Rosehill, Carlisle.  Find the Hall just off the M6 junction 43, set your Sat Nav to Borderway Centre, CA1 2RS. The fair opens to all at 10.30 am, stall holders can set up from 07.30.

For more details plus information for stall holders, please see the Carlisle Toy Fair website.

Treasured toys await your discovery!
