And is bad weather part of the cover?
Well, no, ours is an October weekend - largely indoor festival, though it has been lovely each year for the 20-odd teams of dancers so far.

In past years, I have organised outdoor July festivals and I remember the agony of looking at weather forecasts and the sky on the days of the events. I must say that my heart goes out to Phil & Steve and all the other poor buggers that have organised camping-type festivals on the last few weekends. Joan Crump's in Peterborough was largely a wash-out and that is one of the driest parts of the country, so what it must have been like for those in the West Country, Wales etc?
