Talk – “Straw Bear – 40 Years of Straw & String” – Brian Kell
The talk is called “40 Years of Straw & String” – Brian Kell will talk about the history of the Whittlesea Straw Bear from the past to the present, along with the changes which have occurred throughout the years of the revival. This is one of the big morris events of the year, held in January in Whittlesey, near Peterborough in Cambridgeshire. There will be time for Q&A.
Brian Kell was the founder and is honorary president of the revived Whittlesea Straw Bear festival, with a background in various folk traditions. He was awarded the British Empire Medal in 2013 for services to music and the community in Whittlesey.
