Driving around today I was thinking (dangerous, I know, to break a habit of a lifetime but there you go):
The Italians in Adelaide have a Festival
The Greeks in Adelaide have a Festival
The Germans in Adelaide have a Festival
The Indians in Adelaide have a Festival
What about us Poms? Where's our English (oh, British if you insist although the Irish do have St Patrick's Day that's pretty well celebrated here - and everywhere in the world as far as I can make out, and the Scottish have some gathering of the clans out in Strathalbyn I think - bagpipes and all) Festival?
I mentioned this to me teenage son who said dismissively "What would you have at an English Festival though?"
So come on Poms in Adelaide, what about our own Festival? What shall we have?? Decent beer, tents selling marmite toast, roast beef with yorkshire pudding and bisto gravy, some English cider... what else? Music? Entertainment? Demonstrations? (I'm wavering about Morris Dancers as really who has ever really seen or taken part in that in England apart from as a tourist thing?)
