A great weekend was had by all.I never heard any complaints. The campsite was a bit wet at times but nothing that a good pair of stout boots or wellies could'nt cope with.
Enjoyed meeting all folkie friends again.
Washing machine is now set to super mud-wash mode so all is well!

Another great Saddleworth - thank you so much Ali, for making it happen. We loved the outdoor swimming pool and health giving mud spa you laid on for us at the campsite - you would pay a fortune for that in some places...
Great music and company and hope to see you next year

Got back around 7.30. Another great weekend and even though the campsite did have its own pool the rain held off a lot of the time and today was sunny!! The kids have come home with new ocarinas courteousy of Sue (Red and white rabbit)which she also taught them to play! Looking forward to next year!

I'm really jealous that you are having a great time Alio!
Sorry but Sandy & I just couldn't make it through the rain & floods! Its pretty wet down here in Stratford-upon-Avon and the M50 is still closed, so I still cannot get to Ross-on-Wye to pick up Sandy!
I hope there are enough Shellbacks who got through but I guess it wasn't quite so bad travelling for those living in the North.
Good luck everyone. Enjoy!

It's beautiful weather here in Saddleworth! Latest from the campsite - Geoff's just called me and said that it will be fine as long as it's treated with care. He suggests that cars are parked on the running track or the car park.

Off to put the venue signs up now! See you all later.

Les and Cindy - the campsite's fine - just damp in parts. Geoff's opened it up today and would have told us if there were any problems. it's easy getting from the campsite into Uppermill - only 200 yards approx..

Friday starts off with a concert, a singaround and a session, all around 7.30. There's usually a singaround in the Waggon on Thursday as well.

Thanks for answering all the questions - I was out getting a camp bed!! Glen (Moor and Coast) called me to say they've stocked up with Jamieson's for me!

LesB - getting to and from the camp site on foot is easy. There is a footpath that runs along the stream directly into Uppermill (about quarter of a mile).

By road you need to go "round the houses" via Greenfield.

Have another look at the campsite pls, i'm getting a little nervous hearing all these tales of mud & mossies. I've only been a day case before & not stayed over.
What does it get like going too & fro from the campsite to town?

Why is it that the cafes close at tea time but the resturants don't open after tea? At least you can get a beer.

Hi Alio,you probably already know but if not, Tim the Twangler has already started his own message on the "Staithes Music weekend" thread on Mudcat. Suprise, suprise!
And if it's not good enough to disturb people on this thread he's even managed to do it on his own thread!
Too much runing off at the mouth can land you in trouble and hopefully he will realise that now. But I don't want to be negative and sincerely wish both and all folk festivals/gatherings every success. Peace and tranquility.

Tim - sorry, but why don't you start your own message? It's a good cause, but it's just getting lost in between all these Saddleworth messages. And I love Staithes too - one of my favourite atmospheric places.

It's glorious again today in Saddleworth!I'm busy answering the phone every other minute - enquiries re the festival.

Linda, I've sent you an email with the 5 categories on for the Wars of the Roses. They sound interesting!

The campsite is open from Thursday night, and closes Monday afternoon - anyone coming on Thursday, we'll be in the Waggon as usual. Mine's a Jamieson's!

Hi Linda,

We're not taking any chances - we're camping on the running track by the stream to ensure we don't get stuck in the mud like we did 3 years ago!

Everyone was towed off by tractor last week-end at Bromsgrove FF (by a kind lady farmer).

Will be there from Thursday evening and will save a space for you.

I think Chris (Soldier Boy) is quite right - people shouldn't try and get people to go to one festival and not another.

The world has space for all sorts of festivals even ones held on greenfield sites with season ticket holders only on the campsite.

Don't you agree Chris?

Nah am afraid you misunderstood my post earlier.
It is a shame so many things clash but it is also a good thing that there are enough events going on to allow them to clash and to allow choices to be made.
LIke when people choose to ignore the obvious meanings of well meant Irony and humour and banter.
I represent only my self and my own veiws I am glad however that someone as important and interesting as yourself took the time to put me in my place.
Still enjoy yours and hope the weather stays fine for you .

Tim the Twangler,god bless your enthusiasm and all your work for the good cause of Staithes folk gathering this weekend BUT honestly mate you are on a hiding to nowhere trying to poach regulars of Saddleworth Folk Festival up to Staithes.

If you have ever been to Saddleworth FF you would know that this is a must-do festival and the same true converts to this festival turn up year after year no matter what the weather threatens. They are a truly happy and brilliant set of people and their number keeps growing every year.

The concert and workshop scene is buzzing with rich talent and the singarounds and musician sessions are some of the best I have ever come across.

I usually mainly frequent 'The Fringe' element of the festival (sorry organisers!)and I had considered Staithes folk weekend because it sounds reight down my street and I'm sure I would love it.
If fact I've considered it more than once and even mentioned it to other folkie friends but their reply has always been "Sounds good but it clashes with Saddleworth!"

Saddleworth AND Staithes are two of my favourite places on this planet, but Saddleworth will always win out (and it's only a half hour drive for me over the pennines to Yorkshires' lost but never forgotten little garden of Eden)

It's a shame and a regret that both festivals are on the same weekend.
I know it is very difficult to avoid clashing with other popular festivals over the summer (what summer? I hear you say) but I am sure that if there was some flexibility to move the Staithes event to some other weekend you would get lots of the Saddleworth folk 'fringe' fraternity going to it.
I for one would be up like a shot.
I sincerely wish both festivals every success and hope that they will both continue to prosper and grow in the years ahead.

Chris

P.S What exactly did you mean Tim when you said in an earlier comment on this thread "I do believe that it is more traditional to make yer own entertainment so that is what loads of us will be doing while you lot are slumming it and being pampered ....enjoy your commercial merry making..??"

That's not very nice is it?
It seems that the difference between Saddleworth FF goers and Staithes goers is that whilst we are polite, good natured and welcoming, Staithes representatives are inpolite, bad mannered and slag off other festivals because they can't get anyone to come to theirs.
Saddleworth FF over-flows with people making their own entertainment in the pubs and clubs because it has such a robust and very large 'fringe' following which is fully supported,encouraged and accomodated by the festival organisers and hostelries.
IN other words it is an all-inclusive festival that caters for every taste and inclination so eveyone is happy.
So it is obvious from what you have said that you have never been to this festival and know absolutely nothing about it

I would be suprised, Tim the Twangler, if you were an official and acceptable spokesperson for the Staithes festival because,quite frankly, your comments and your attitude actually does this festival more harm than good.
You are a poor and, I'm sure, unwelcomed 'representative' of this festival who would do well to shut up and keep your own counsel.

If however, you really do 'represent' Staithes folk weekend and speak on behalf of other like-minded people,then do you know what?, I would'nt touch it with a barge pole.

The moral of this tale therefore is...there is NO CONTEST folks...get yourselves to The Saddleworth Folk Festival THIS COMING WEEKEND and have yourselves a great time.
