"btw, I would have thought constructive comments would be welcomed directly by the organisers, rather than starting a thread here about it".

Yes, but the organisers will now all be soaking their feet and chilling having worked very hard to make the festival a success. I am sure that some. at least, are active mudcatters, and, for us Sidders newbies, it's an efficient messaging system.

The Campsite's organisation was very good for us. Once we had secured a key for it, the disabled toilet was a godsend. Even the ordinary toilets were usable, as they had handrails. The one that had pallets up to the steps was ok until the pallets collapsed. It then became unusable.The addition of a ramp to one of the shower blocks was very welcome, but would it be possible to have a purpoae built disabled shower and toilet for next year please?

We were warned to expect noise at night, and the music was fine.
However, there was a lot of boisterous teenagers using the toilets outside our pitch all night. Would it not be possible, (and, as a health and safety issue)to put a toilet near the chill out/ refreshment area.?

We enjoyed the sessions in The Newt, The Middle Bar, and to an extent, the Bedford. Where do all those fiddles come from ? Being able to play on the outside stage at The Hub and Dukes was great too.
We'll be back next year!
