Madam Gashee Hull shanty festival 2002------ comments (28) RE: Hull shanty festival------ comments 04 Sep 02

I took my 3 year old with me & the Baggies and did encounter a problem on the Friday night singaround in the White Hart. The landlady really didn't know why, just said it was the law and that the local police wouldn't allow it! As the room we were in was at the back of the pub, separate to the bar and didn't have a serving bar there,(although there was a bar set up, it wasn't in use!) I really couldn't see a problem and had never had one in any festival before.
The rest of the festival was fine and Jacob came to both concert nights and all the day venues.
Hull council did provide a children's area on the other side of the dock with a free bouncy castle and some fine childrens entertainers including Inner State Theatre. On the whole I had no major problems

I am responsible enough that if my son starts to play up or distract from the proceedings I would hastily remove him. However he generally behaves and enjoys the music as do my other children when they attend.
If our sort of music is generally played in pubs and children aren't allowed in...How can we but wonder at it's future?
