I would dearly like to say that the FF upstairs room is a no smoker.

However there are a number of FF regulars who are habitual smokers. I believe that they are coming round to the change in the 'norm' and I as I have stated, will be asking them not to smoke in the club room!

There are still many clubs which do not have such a ban. I would like the law changed to prohibit smoking in public houses to come in as in Ireland asap and if our experience and the excellent work pioneered by Pete Swift (No Smoke Folk)in FCs as a result of Roy Castles' untimely death leads to greater folkie longevity then all to the good.

Education education education I cannot impose this ban this year without the agreement of all concerned.
thanks to everyone for raising this is and general concern.

Next year's festival will be a non smoker upstairs, or i wont be festival director!

The pub downstairs permits smoking, so if you want to smoke but come why not stay downstairs!
