Thread Name: Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (2011)
Subject: RE: Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (England
Have I missed something amongst all this sparring...but I don't recall seeing any Dates - either for the 'new' Middlewich Festival, or for Ian's new event on the Macclesfield. Dates would be good...remembering that Middlewich Folk AND Boat Festival was just that ie very much centred about the boat gathering (as far as I viewed it, as one who visited most years), as well as the folk event. In this respect, if the boats continue to visit (depending on what the local Council are offering towards the boat community), then this particular community festival will still have a significant additional attraction over and above just being a local rose show. I love the boats, and I love the Boat Band (but, have to say that the rest of the Festival, apart from the Morris and parade, didn't really float this particular boat...), so, I would probably make the effort to attend on that basis. So, if the website is out of date, etc., and the other event is 'sometime in July' then, if somebody could supply some dates I will commit them both to the 'virtual Diary'.
