Doc Rowe in the News

— Posted on 10th November 2023

Doc Rowe was in the news again on 5 November 2023, with an Observer article about his work: https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2023/nov/05/cheese-rolling-straw-bears-and-weird-rituals-galore-one-mans-mission-to-record-all-of-british-folklore

The article draws attention to the Crowdfunder to fund the digitisation of parts of Doc’s archive of the film and video recordings he has made of seasonal events in Britain over the past 60 years.
