Thread Name: 10th Saddleworth Festival, 2007
Subject: RE: 10th Saddleworth
What I really like about the Saddleworth Folk Festival is that it is all inclusive.
What I mean by that is that concert goers and the FRINGE are all fully catered for. Too many festivals for my liking exclude 'The Fringe' and will provide camping for only season/weekend ticket holders only. This festival is different in that it is open house to everyone.
You can camp for the whole festival for just £10.00 or pay £5.00 per person per night wether you are are ticket holder or not.
To me this is the correct diplomacy that all festivals should adopt.
I do believe that a true and proper festival should cater for all tastes and not exclude (as so many do, 'the fringe')
If you have been to this festival before you will know that the fringe in terms of sing-arounds and musician sessionns is par- excellence in the local pubs (especially in the waggon and horses (I think it is called that!) and what great sessions we have had there. (please correct me if i have got this venue wrong)
Anyway, enjoy this festival to the full. You will not be dissapointed. I promise.
