Hawker Morris Sides Wanted Bude Cornwall UK (4) RE: Morris Sides Wanted Bude Cornwall UK 03 Apr 12


Hi Steve,
We did start earlier, in November in fact, have now got to desperation really, and the Jubilee has made it difficult this year too. In previous years we have started even earlier and been told by sides that we should ask again about November when they start to plan the following year, so that is what we tried.Obviously you start to plan earlier so I take that on boards that perhaps we have been misinformed!

Bude Offers a weekend by the sea, with lots to do and see and a superb community spirit. Really friendly and venues and the camp site walking distance from the main venues.
We offer free weekend tickets to sides and their families (within reason) and free weekend camping.

This will be the sixth Bude & Stratton Folk festival, it is not unusual to this year this is the same every year, we usually get at least 2 sides, but this year, nothing........This may also, I guess have something to do with the recession and the cost of fuel.

I hear what you are saying about weekend festivals and having a life outside of morris, but North Cornwall is not an easy place to get to, so asking for attendance for a day seems a bit futile to,. though we would be grateful for any participation.

and finally, then, I take your advice about asking early.......any sides want to come to Bude & Stratton Folk Festival 2013? There, I got my bid in early......

We would also welcome rapper sides, longsword sides and appalachian dancers.

Cheers, Lucy
