MORE THAN 170 Bideford primary school children had a unique opportunity to experience traditional English music, songs, and dancing for three days when Bideford Folk Festival arranged for Pete and Sue Coe to visit Bideford from Yorkshire.
They worked with children from all the local primary schools. Kingsley School hosted the event, which was made possible by a Torridge District Councillor Community Grant through Councillor Peter Christie.
Pete Coe is acknowledged as Britain's foremost interpreter of traditional music and songs for schools and children and also a very fine performer with an international reputation.
Sue Coe is a leading exponent of English Longsword and Step dancing, so together they were able to give Bideford pupils an experience they will not forget.
