Folk at the Festival

Annie Edson Taylor was the first person to survive the ordeal of going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. It’s the stuff of legends and the raw material for folk songs. Kirsty Merryn, who appears at the Steyning Festival this year, doesn’t disappoint.

Roll up, roll up, for the Steyning Festival!

If you try to find St Cuthman’s Port on the map you will need a very old one made in Norman times.  Much has changed since then.  St Cuthman famously put down his wheelbarrow containing his mother and their possessions at a particular spot and there he built a church.  The spot on the map is now called Steyning and a sculpture of St Cuthman with his wheelbarrow sits looking at the church which bears his name.
