Hey cheer up!
Not having been to the Burnley festival I can't really comment on the comparison except to say that whatever the line-up , good or bad, the Fringe at Beverley is always fantastic.
In fact it is so good that a few years ago they didn't bother having a line-up at all, and the Fringe by itself was enough to keep the whole weekend going.
The town is great, the atmosphere is fantastic and the singing and playing in all of sessions is enthusiastic ...................... and frequently quite talented.
It's meeting old friends and having a good time that keeps us going back, not the line-up. O.k. having a cracking guest list mean sthat there's loads of choice as to who you have to miss in order to stay at the singaround for another few hours, but hey, what the hell?
Come on and enjoy yourself.
