Anyone coming to Saddleworth this year? It's my last one, so I made sure that there were going to be loads and loads of singers! Waterson Carthy, Wilsons, Strawhead, Dave Webber and Anni Fentiman, Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher, Jez Lowe, Muldoon's Picnic, Scolds Bridle, Hissyfit, Bryony - to mention just a few!!!

And we'll have a Festival CD on sale to celebrate - with local artists on, besides the big names (the ones I've already mentioned plus Eric Bogle, Show of Hands, John Tams, John Wright, Roy Bailey, Kerfuffle and Clive Gregson). It's a double CD for just £10, so not too bad I think?

Please come along and help me celebrate my last year - I'll be the one crying into my Jamieson's!!!

Yep, got me ticket. Should be a really fab 10th anniversary. I've only missed one and can reccomend the event to anyone - the web site is www.safra.or.uk. Won't be with me old mate Jim Riley (another regular)this year as he was sadly killed in an accident recently so i'll personally dedicate this year's bash to him (rip).

Sorry it's your last year Ali - presume you mean in an official capacity (hope you're still going to grace us with your presence in the future).

Lets all put a request in with the 'creator of the universe and all things as we know it' for sunny weather.

Thanks Nick - Saddleworth is on the edge of Yorkshire (although others disagree, which is why we have a Wars of the Roses!) It's half way between Oldham and Huddersfield, on the Pennines - very beautiful area. And the weekend is July 20th - 22nd.

You definitely didn't come to the festival in the mid 80's Lynne - I've been involved since the 1st one, which was in 1998.

Vin2 - you'll have to speak to some of the committee over the weekend. See you all then,

No Lynne - that's a fantastic weekend at the end of August, but just the rushcart and dancers - nothing to do with the folk festival. Some of the local teams do dance for us as well.

I'd love to hear what Mudcatters think about a problem we've never resolved in Saddleworth - do we put the programme of events on the website or not?

I'd really like to, as I do check other festival websites, but some of the committee are worried that it could reduce sales of the Festival Programme, which is potentially a source of income.

Would you buy a Programme if you already knew what was going to happen over the weekend, or not?

Yes in our case it made our mind up about going to Warwick as who we wanted to see was not on on the Sunday night when we would be returning home.Also Beverley we made plans knowing when Bellowhead where on. I think people who buy programmes buy them any way, knowing it supports the festival.

Yes Alio I definitely think you should put the programme on the website.

Most other festivals with any cred do, and (I hear reliably) this does little if anything to the detriment of programme sales.
I always buy a programme, whether I already have the content of the all-important "middle pages" in advance or not. Yes Keith is absolutely right, most folkies will buy a programme to support the festival and as a souvenir, also to get all that extra information such as maps, local adverts and biog details that don't appear on the website in most cases.
The big bonus point though is that folks can make plans based on more accurate programme information from the website, they can be sure of coming on the right day/evening to see specific artistes or participate in a specific workshop or singaround (how infuriating are the sites that just say "plus workshops, singarounds, sessions" then when you arrive you've just missed one...).
If I'm travelling a longer distance, I really do need to know whether planning to arrive in a strange town at - say - midday on the Saturday will mean I miss a vital event or whether the local streets would be closed for a parade etc etc. And on a Friday, whether events start up from midday or from 7 pm...

But probably most important, the festivals concerned end up getting more revenue from those folks who are pre-informed, who will then come and enjoy with confidence and then next year perhaps decide to buy a whole weekend ticket because they were so impressed with the festival and its user-friendly publicity and attitude this year...

So - go for it, Alio!

I always buy a programme and since sometimes I can only make a day visit it's a great help if I know which day's events are the most to my taste. I had a packed day at a recent festival because I was able to get there in time for a morning w/shop - would have missed a couple of enjoyable events had I waited until I got there.

Thanks Alio.
What I really like about the Saddleworth Folk Festival is that it is all inclusive.
What I mean by that is that concert goers and the FRINGE are all fully catered for. Too many festivals for my liking exclude 'The Fringe' and will provide camping for only season/weekend ticket holders only. This festival is different in that it is open house to everyone.
You can camp for the whole festival for just £10.00 or pay £5.00 per person per night wether you are are ticket holder or not.
To me this is the correct diplomacy that all festivals should adopt.
I do believe that a true and proper festival should cater for all tastes and not exclude (as so many do, 'the fringe')
If you have been to this festival before you will know that the fringe in terms of sing-arounds and musician sessionns is par- excellence in the local pubs (especially in the waggon and horses (I think it is called that!) and what great sessions we have had there. (please correct me if i have got this venue wrong)
Anyway, enjoy this festival to the full. You will not be dissapointed. I promise.

Thanks for this Soldier Boy, and I fully endorse your comments re the importance of the "fringe" events, which to me make the real atmosphere of the weekend. Visitors to Saddleworth, even if they hadn't known about the festival in advance, can't help but be drawn in. Therefore "fringe" supporters have to be given equal value by the festival committee, and that includes equal access to the camping facilities.

As far as I am aware there are not many festivals that exclude fringes. Can you name one? Most make special provision. Shrewsbury for instance has a bus to take people into town for fringe events - and Warwick usually has a double decker. Both only offer camping for season ticket holders. One charges extra for camping - the other doesn't.

I am sure both would provide cheap camping had they got space but they don't and haven't ever in my experience at Warwick.

I have been to three festivals this year so far and only one had space for non-season ticket holders, (but wouldn't have had they sold more tickets of any kind), and one in particular once the festival got under way the campsite was - to all intents and purposes - as full as a chip, despite its size.

Some festivals and I can think of at least two - don't offer camping of any sort. Others, like Shrewsbury, charge extra for it.

To describe one festival as "correct diplomacy that all festival should adopt " when some festivals can't do this whether they want to or not - and to say I do believe that a true and proper festival should cater for all tastes and not exclude (as so many do, 'the fringe') seems narrow-minded to me when you are claiming to be all-inclusive.

So perhaps for the benefit of people who want to know these things, you would be kind enough to tell us which festivals you regard as "proper" and offering the "correct diplomacy" and those that don't cater for all tastes?

Apparently there was some rumour goung around Cleckie that Saddlewroth is cancelled - well it definitely isn't!!! I'm doing the PRS stuff as we speak (unfortunately!!)

it was the Saddleworth Summer Show which was cancelled - they use the same ground as we do for the campsite. But I've been down there today, and it's fine for camping - drying out nicely. It gets wet very quickly but dries out even quicker, thank goodness.

So if you do hear this rumour, will you put people right please?!!

And the Festival CD looks - and sounds - brilliant! I'm really chuffed with it!
