Thursday 1st August
John Jones, lead singer of Oysterband, led some 60 walkers from the Bucks Head in Meonstoke, up to Old Winchester Hill and down to Soberton for lunch. They then walked along the old railway line and into the Wickham Festival where John and the Reluctant Ramblers band played a rousing set on the Village Stage.
Matthew Bannister joined the walk to record an episode for his Folk On Foot podcast series. This is to be released in November 2019. See www.folkonfoot.com for further details.
