Welcome to the StepBack Consortium.

This Not-for-Profit umbrella body was set up to carry on the three in-house projects at SEFAN (South East Folk Arts Network) when that organisation closed in 2015.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of John Bacon, Chair of the Consortium and Lead on the ESSDF project, on December 7th 2019, following an operation. 
Friday January 10th 2020, we said our goodbyes to him in the totally-packed St. Margaret's Church, Ditchling; before Ditchling Morris danced him from the service.

A Tribute to John from Fee Lock (
Meltdown's Committee, Secretary of the Morris Federation) during the funeral is here.

He will be so sorely missed by so many.
