Subject: RE: The Beverley Folk Festival-fringe program
I thought the £1 for the shuttle was fine to be honest, what's a quid these days? If anything though they could have been a little more frequent than they were. One an hour on a Saturday afternoon seems nowhere near enough to me and the walk from town to the racecourse is not a two minute job by any means, so a few more buses might be a good idea next year.

I also preferred the new venue, and was similarly not really a big fan of the leisure centre, I'd echo Jane of 'Ull's comments entirely - definitely more "festivally".

The Minster Bar signposting was daft though and if we hadn't been specifically looking for it I doubt we would have walked down there to the end of the course where it was hiding.

The fringe venues seemed as busy as ever on Saturday, perhaps more so than last year by my reckoning.

Tiger, Sun and Oddies were all highly enjoyable. We didn't make it to Hodgsons this year. We didn't do any of the ticketed festival events this year either.

On the whole it was a cracking visit on Saturday and just a shame we couldn't really make it back on Sunday for more of the same.

Nick.
