Thread Name: Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (2011)
Subject: RE: Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (England
Couldn't agree more Dave. I suspect it may be a bit minimal this year, but I don't know anything. I am just back from a few days away freom a computer, and found an email from the new organisers saying basically "old committee resigned, something will happen nonetheless, can the Boat Band come?"
To which my answer is of course yes. Things were kept ticking over in 2001 by wellwishers, boaties and pub sessions, and it may well be there will be no big marquees and stuff this year either. But things can rise again. A lot of cultural activities are going to collapse this year with the cuts everywhere.If we all make maximum effort, coninuity can be maintained as best we can.
