Thread Name: Loughborough Folk Festival
Subject: RE: Loughborough Folk Festival
That's hard right now. We have to evaluate the toll the event took on our staff at this busy time of year (right before panto - oh yes it is!) and decide whether this is the right time for us, as a venue, to run a large-scale event (though even if we do, we'll go a week earlier so as not to clash with Banbury). The other issue is that October's getting crowded in the midlands - there's a new festival coming in for the last weekend in October next year (not sure if I can say any more at this stage). It's starting to feel like July!

The alternative is to move it to the spring, when we're relatively quiet. Any thoughts about preferences/reasons not to do one or the other?
