The rain has eased considerably and could think of stopping soon . (1240hrs GMT)

I've been down to the campsite which has some BIG puddles and oombanjo is hopeful the weather will ease.

General traffic has been hid badly by localised flooding. From the Humber Bridge A164) the Willerby roundabout was under water and traffic at a crawl. Entering from North Cave, Walkington had flooding too.
I expect it's much the same from York (A1079)but believe it to be slightly clearer to the North.
There is a LOT of activity in Beverley this weekend.
A tribute band, 'The Kings of Queen' are due to perform up on the Westwood, (north west of town) on Saturday evening AND
the Final 'Walkington Hayride', 'Heavy Horses' drawing carts/carriages in Victorian style meander to Beverley and back on Sunday afternoon.
It's now 1255hrs and the rain has stopped (at my house), 2 miles north of the campsite. Fingers and toes crossed.
Hopefully all will enjoy what they can. I'm in my shorts and make no apology for my attire. Legs dry off so much quicker than soggy trousers! Wellies at the ready.I'm heading for the campsite about 1400hrs.
Enjoy.

Lunch time BBC 'Look North' said the festival is still ON, tho' other events in Hull have been cancelled!
(Bridlington had one months rainfall in 12 hours!!)

It's a lot brighter now and barely raining.

I'll see you there!

Heard rumours and the questionaire may have hinted at it, can't remember the question but did remark on it.I don't have a problem where the festival may or may not be held but if it is in a field somewhere the festival food tent needs to step up about 98% it was useless this year. Festival Tickets prices are very high compared to other festivals having said that I would not organise a folk festival and vote with me wallet and feet anyway Enjoyed the artists who where on and even with the rain an enjoyable festival this year

One of us saw Bellowhead and they were great. It must be very expensive to book a main act like that. Imagine splitting the gig money eleven ways!
Suppose a lot of us would be happy with a cheaper festival because we like dance teams and sessions and perhaps just to drop into something else at some point but aren't so bothered about whether it's a big time act. Beverley festival is limited in size by the size of the campsite and if the ambition is to move away from the 'character' provincial market town bit of fun and become something like Towersey or Glastonbury then the organisers have to to go somewhere else.
We just heard 'a site ten miles away' so that could be Driffield show ground. It's a pity for Beverley town and the folkies of Beverley will miss it. For the festival itself I suppose it depends on what you want from a festival and others might prefer a bigger site and more of a rock festival feel. If anyone has opinions on it now is the time to get a feedback form and fill it in.

Despite the best endeavours of the weather god, this was a good do and the camping field held out.

I was a "traffic" marshall in a high vis vest.   Jeremy Clarkson said that the country was being run by blokes in high vis vests. I agree with him.    All I needed was the power of arrest and the weekend would be complete.   By power of arrest I mean of those without tickets, banjo players, singers (like me) out of tune etc.

Well I reckon the big bands can go off to Humbleton and leave us in Beverley with a fringe festival that has a reasonable camping ticket price and some good sessions. Never have been to any of the big gigs, which makes it an expensive weekend camping! Couldn't make it this year - hope you all didn't get drowned! Look forward to a Fringetastic event next year then!

Home, dry, tired, nearly hoarse and delighted with the way the weekend produced more of those wonderful 'unrehearsed choir' moments in Hodgsons.
Congratulations to Willa for 'The Wilberforce Collection' events that resulted from her very great effort. It was a delight to hear James Berriman singing live.... (I heard him 3 times) what an outstanding voice. Sorry not to get to the Monks Mick/Roger. I was unable to get a leave pass!
Great job well done by Maggie and Les, Derek, John and Carol keeping Hodgsons front room in order....all weekend. An 'I'll only stay about 10 minutes' remark was forgotten as someone left nearly five hours later wondering 'where the time went'.
Wildboy let some gatecrashers in to 'Area2 tent where the singing continued. Zoe and Dave were brill as were Derek, oombanjo, Roy and Carol and I didn't want the evening to end.
The new rope string band had me in stitches, see them if you can.
Could have had a better layout in the tented village, a fab coffee stall was so far out I nearly missed it.
Great job on the campsite by oombanjo. He never gets enough credit for what he oversees.
Epic over now. If I've forgotten anyone I'm sorry but I'm somewhat tired. I know! Special thanks to Linda Kelly for services to 'Pistachio' time management! It's a hell of a task. xxx

I am the voice inside Pistachio's head which says 'I want to be here but need to be there!'-Good festival better fringe- Glad I saw Seth Lakeman, cos he is very good but not my scene, and if I saw anyone else I can't remember. Friday fringe was superb, nice to see John J again-well done Mick Les & Maggie Carol for running wonderful singarounds and to oombanjo for managing the flood better than Noah. Good to see the pubs full in a part of Beverley that needs the trade. Improvements needed to the food and the craft stalls but given conditions then I suspect that had a bearing on those things. I am loking forward to Cleckheaton immensely.

also enjoyed the festival but feel that someone has another agenda regarding moving to a greenfield site.
mild moan ; i think that a warning to all under 14s to wear earplugs means that this is not really a folk act and would be better appreciated by head bangers from Bradford and the money better spent on a folk act.
if you need a guard on the emergency exit of a concert please note that the crash doors need the bolts unfastened to allow the doors to open in an emergency.
fiddlers who get a bit precious when a box player diverts away from that irish tune they play all night.
mild praise
the fringe is the important part of Beverley festival and should be preserved.
if the larger option moves away, keep the faith and downsize to a festival within the town and base at the memorial hall it worked at Holmfirth.
absolute praise to Oombanjo for site organization

Having had to miss this years festival,I was a bit shocked to start reading the messages and find out that I had maybe missed the last Beverley-based festival.

I agree with previous writers who say that if the big festival moves away to a site-based festival, with only limited opportunities for impromptu sessions, then I would certainly support a weekend of fringe events based in various pubs with maybe one concert venue such as the memorial hall.

It would be a real shame to move away from Beverley.

Here's to next year

Wish we could have stayed longer in the Foresters Arms on Sunday as there was some good 'stuff' being played by all and a nice, relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. There was a suggestion of a similar session starting up in the Sun on Tuesday evenings but I didn't get further details. Does anyone know if it starts tonight? Ta.

I thought the fringe festival produced some superb stuff. It was great to see The Sun totally mobbed. It was busier than I've seen it since 2003! There was a gathering of vry talented writers, singers and musicians at The Forresters on Sunday. The locals of a great histoic minstrels town showed once again how the passion and skill still runs in the blood. It was enhanced too by some amazing artists from further afield. Well done to all inolved in a cracking musical weekend (the beer wasn't bad either!)

Respect to all, Karl.

The 'Sun Songs' evening does indeed start tonight and it would be great if we could get lots of support for the first evening. It will be running every Tuesday from 8.30pm at the Sun Inn, Beverley.

Hey I just want to say a big thanks to everyone who made the festival work, you know who you are. It was pretty scary on Friday morning watching a lake appear at the campsite entrance, but it all just seemed to work out fine in the end.

I had a brilliant weekend. The mix of bands like New Model Army and Bellowhead with the more traditional artists was inspired; this, combined with the fringe activities, made it one of the best festival's I've been to anywhere. I'm horrified to hear that it will be moving outside Beverley. The whole atmosphere will change and losing the opportuniy to wander into town will make the whole event much less attractive - in fact, I may not even bother coming again. Come on, Chris, that really is a move too far.
