Irish charity weekend at Roughton pub
An Irish weekend at a North Norfolk pub later this month is raising funds for a charity which teaches youngsters in Ireland about their local music and language.
Craic has been doing the work for 10 years in the Strabane area of Northern Ireland, which is the home of Roughton New Inn landlord Sean Crampsie.
His father Johnny was a traditional Irish violinist and Sean has seen the good work of Craic - Cultural Revival of Interested Communities - during his visits back home.
Last year a band of musicians came across to Roughton for a week of music and dance which raised more than �700 for the cause along with another �500 for the Red Balloon charity in Norfolk which helps bullied schoolchildren.
This year they are returning for another charity Irish weekend over March 25-27, which includes a Friday ceilidh, Saturday concert and Sunday lunch jam session introducing youngsters to traditional instruments.
