As you may know by now, the festival is currently conducting a feasibility study into how the festival can develop into the future.

As part of the study, we have recently added a thread to the festival web forum and would welcome any comments.

Hi all,

Beverley folk festival's website has now got a forum where you can air your views on the future of the festival. There is a study/consultation going on as to whether to keep the festival in town or move to a green field site or another town in the region. Have your say!
Forum

There is also a public meeting in the Tiger Inn, Beverley on Thurs 22nd May at 7.30pm for those who can make it.

Having joined the BFF forum with the intent of gaining the intent of the organisers and giving my opinion on the issues. I found that there is only one issue, to move or not to move the festival out of Beverley. This was covered in a questionnaire at the last festival. With the result that the festival should not move out of town. The festival and the town go together to produce its atmosphere.    I for one would not like to see it go, and although I have issues with the way the festival is going I still think it is one of the best festivals in the country. If the intent is for the Festival to move there are questions to be raised. "Would they still seek funding from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council" or would they find alternative funding, would it still be a folk festival, or a world roots festival. These are only two questions but there are many more. Join the forum and post your questions, ask for a positive response and let the festival users gauge the way the organisers of the festival intend to develop the future of the Beverley Folk Festival

Paco, here's part of an email I received from Chris Wade when I asked her the same question in June last year.

"There have been rumours about the festival moving. Well, it was certainly great this year and ideally we would love to keep it where it is. Having said that we are facing more and more difficulties with restrictions imposed on us at the venues and generally in the town with regard to signage, putting up posters, banners etc to publicise the event, all of which make life more and more difficult for us. And we want an easier life! We also have the problem of the fact that the Memorial Hall is likely to be closed for a year for renovations - and we are not sure when. It was supposed to have been this year - maybe it will be 2008 or not till 2009. In any case we need to plan ahead and work out the best way forward for when this happens."

Like many people, I wouldn't want to see the festival move out of town.

I would also like to see the Festival remain in Beverley andd East Riding County Council ought to appoint a liaison officer with decision making powers, to help overcome the increasingly petty and largely irrelevant nonsensical rules that burden just about everything done today.   I am sure if there was enough of the right publicity the Council, who own the site and have many rules to enforce, would pull out all the stops to keep the festival in town, don't you?

The festival ought not to be moved from the town
The organisers, principally Chris Wade, who I think does a great job, should be supported in that endeavour if that is her stated intention.

Perhaps EYCC should be encouraged to engage in a feasibility study which will enable it to reflect on the economic and social benefits which a cultural event of this kind brings to region enhancing its reputation and so forth. Such dialogue may well be convincing – maybe not.

Maybe the festival committee ought to reflect on scaling down the number of headline acts for a couple of years.
Clearly, it ought to make a ROI but that is not the sole reason for its existence.

I suppose, as a rate-payer, I'll be asked to pay for this.

Actually, EYCC do seem quite alert to the benefits of folk music if their encouragement of school projects is anything to go by (as anyone who saw the performance at last year's BFF by the fantastic group of youngsters whose name for the moment escapes me will appreciate).

FOLKIEDAVE said "East Yorkshire Showground at Driffield seems the obvious place to me."
HOWEVER, Driffield already has it's own folk festival, see here Driffield Folk Festival
So, a move there to set up on someone else's patch wouldn't go down very well would it???
Nor would it be the Beverley Folk Festival.
At the moment there's not enough information in the public domain to base any meaningful discussion on. So until the Beverley Folk Festival organisers give us something more substantial to go on there ain't much to discuss.

Beverley festival is a great festival with a unique Beverley town atmosphere. The loss of the Picture Playhouse and of Nellys were blows, and those venues brought visitors through Saturday market and added local flavour.

I wonder if the work on Norwood House is anywhere near being completed(?) as that would be a good venue. The parish hall next to the Minster is another great venue and perhaps that could be used.

Can anyone think of any other Beverly Town venues that could fill the gap left by the Picture Playhouse and Nellys while the Memorial hall is done up?

Trying to remember what was said before the meeting halted. There was mention of 'Beverley Folk Festival' now being just 'Beverley Festival'?, or was it 'Beverley Folk Roots and World Music Festival'? Hadn't realised that had happened.

There were questionaires around after a concert one year asking things like 'is it ok to include ..... music'. I thought it was meant to refer to an inclusion that wouldn't interfere with or take resources from the rest of the folk festival.

If there are questionaires around this year, anyone interested needs to get hold of one and fill it in. I'm going to take care to think about the implications of what it might be used for too.

I went to both the Saturday and Sunday night main concerts last year and had a great time. Judging by the attendance on both nights then reasonable profits should have been made. The present location is ideal as 'it's' all in the same area of Beverley. People like everything to be within walking distance of pubs (fringe events), and amenities which is what they've got now. Traveling further afield for weekend events could seriously effect numbers with the possiblity of the festival being seriousy fragmented. Artists should be willing to reduce their fees substantialy in order to perform at such a highly regarded annual event.

They say it's not decided yet. There will an announcement about whatever will happen at the end of this years festival. The directors that spoke said they wanted a music festival not a folk festival and that they would much prefer to be at another location. One of them (an odd person to be involved in Beverley folk festival) was strongly against both 'folk' and 'Beverley'. No one agreed with them, even the youngsters who wanted a rock music tent.

We think there will always be a Beverley folk festival of some kind. There has always been something going on, from the minstrels gathering in Medieval times to the dance groups that danced out for the efdss national day of dance pre the white horse folk club folk festival.

If that's the way they feel then, perhaps it's best that they move on.

Then Beverley's 'People' festival can rise again and give the people of Beverley what they want.

I think that the Shanty Festival together with a smaller folk festival would be perfect but that's just a personal opinion.

Interesting goings on.
Well said Nutty.

I've been travelling up to Beverley for the folk festival since the mid eighties. I've missed one or two along the way, but I've certainly enjoyed every one that I got to.

It's gone through lots of ups and downs, many changes and we (the public) even managed to keep it going the year when there wasn't (an official) one.

If the powers that are now in control have decided that Beverley folk festival shouldn't be
a) About folk and
b) In Beverely

then let them go off and organise what they want, where they want. I've no doubt that Beverley won't be short of a Folk Festival for very long.

See you all soon.

Beverley realy needs an arts centre and its silly that we don't have one. Massive amounts are raised from us rate-payers in Beverley and Beverley sees very little back. The East Riding authority (who get nearly all the money) spend a lot elsewhere. Pocklington have a nice arts centre and Bridlington have a lot spent on various costly projects.

Norwood house is a lovely historic building close to the center of town. The picture playhouse wasn't saved but it's not too late to do something with Norwood House.   If the current festival organisers move onto a different festival in a different place, an arts centre would be an ideal center for the organisation of events such as a traditional folk festival in Beverley.

We are writing to the Libraries, Arts and Heritage group manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council. Anyone else interested in this? See www.norwoodhouse.org    or    www.beverleyhigh.e-yorks.sch.uk/norwood/
