The organisers of Sidmouth could really do with contacting Allan and Sandra Surtees with regards to setting out a campsite. shrewsbury Festival's site was wonderful.

For John 'Giok' MacKenzie - - The car park opposite the Bedford allows camper vans on, a friend of mine always stays there. Just buy a ticket for the week from the little hut at the entrance. Warning though - if he doesn't like the look of the van he'll probably say no. Showers can be had at the Yacht Club, as can decent breakfasts too.

Giok, I've checked and the carpark opposite the Bedford (at the Cricket ground) won't be available till after Saturday. But you should be able to simply arrive at thr Rugby Club on Thursday afternoon and buy a week-long parking pass.

I have got weekly tickets at the Rugby club by turning up and asking for one at the gate - they might have changed things recently, I supose - there was something about large vehicles costing more to park last year - but you will be there early, so there should be some left.

Single men.. If you haven't been single for 10 years you'll find it very different now. Firstly don't forget that you are 10 years older as well. Lots of beer? no, defintley designer water for most of the day and a few beers in the evening. Getting ratted? A definite no no. make sure you have everything you actually need for the week. Scrounging off nubile young women...they might think you have an ulterior motive! Enjoy yourself.

They drink a lot of beer.

Has anyone noticed how, in a festival crowd, there are always lots of large men who just stand in the middle of the crowd? They don't move, don't beat time or dance a little jig to themselves. They don't join in or look particularly happy. They just stand.

The scooter is too heavy to transport easily by bus. It has to be taken apart to get it into the boot of a car.
The range is truly pathetic but better if there are no hills involved so there is no chance of getting it up to the campsite under its own steam.
It is perfect for getting about on the esplanade and the flat bit of the town though.
I can't ask my friend to transport the battery/s because she would not then be able to carry her instrument and that would be totally unfair on her.

Last year the nice people in the Camp Site office allowed me to charge my cycle battery overnight in their office.
Assuming your scooter is transportable by bus or your car I am sure that similr facilities would be offered to you if you were to ask.

Bad news - I've just managed to break my right ankle so am fully plastered before my first pint.

Good News - I've got a loan of a tiny mobility scooter for the week.

Bad news - It has a range that is almost non-existant and can't be used in the wet.

Good news - I have a spare battery so can swap them to keep mobile.

Good news - I'm on the official site and can use the busses to get down into the town.

Does anybody live/knows someone who lives/staying near the festival bus stops and has space for a 3ft by fractionally over 1ft lightweight scooter and would let me charge my battery there? I am happy to recompense you for the electricity used and would be really grateful.

Mary

Tattie ... the words and tune are to be found amongst the items on Digitrad, under the title of Ellen Vannen (misspelled unfortunately) - tune by Hugh Jones, and performed in the sixties (?) by the Spinners, which is where I remember learning the song from in the Seventies.

Special request for Breton Cap: the Ellen Vannin disaster: was discussing said song with a friend last night: she has got the words off the net (with a reference to your real name on the sheet) but doesn't know the tune: I can only remember the chorus. I'll bring my technology with me, if you will please sing it again!
She also has another lovely song re Ellen Vannin: more about the beauty of the Isle of Man.

Just passed the campsite and it looks a bit muddy at the entrance but there's quite a few organisers tents and caravans already there and they're using the gate to the side, I presume in an attempt not to churn up the main entrance for Friday. Marquee is going up at Bulverton field. I've looked at the local weather forecast and although heavy rain is expected on Sun/Mon it just says 'Partly Clouded' from Mon 31st July onwards so that gives us four or five days for the site to dry. Just need a good breeze!Saturday 4th 'Mostly sunny'. There, does that make you all a bit more excited!!

Dave it is indeed very different but perhaps you could go back and treat it as a new and different festival? Less of the silly, impromptu things seem to happen these days, partly due, I think, to all the innumerable rules and regulations we're bound about with, but they do still happen. Last year there were sessions in the ford and in the sea. The year before we had a 'Not the Arena Concert', which was great fun. It's changed but it's still what you make it.

I'm not getting excited 'cos I'm not going. Haven't been for years, haven't been able to, and I somehow think it might be a mistake to go back now.

I have such magical memories you see. Len's farewell "This is your life" party in the Balfour when Martin Ellison told the story of the bloke who held the record for buying the last pint. Sidmouth lost its soul when Len left the Balfour. Then driving back to the flat at 3 in the morning and parking the car in the ford.

And the Dove. Anyone remember the Silent Singaround in aid of Taffy?

'Eric' in concert in the Drill Hall and the wonderful 'Housewives Choice' and Kerry from Paddington's birthday party in that pub on the sea-front. Ralphie will remember.

The Kipper Family in the Drill Hall with their 'sweet-corn dolly'

Dancing with Handsworth in front of 4,500 people on the Arena stage on the Friday night of the Silver Jubilee year. When it started raining the whole hillside turned orange and blue.

I'm sure if I went back it wouldn't be the same.

It'll be my last year there as money will force us to use the caravan next year - but then again it can be fun up there on the main campsite, and the bus certainly runs late.
