On the CD are tracks from artistes who have appeared at the Festival in the past 21 years and some who will be at this year's festival. For more information the video on our website.

It was a brilliant night. I really enjoyed listening to Duncan and Anne, there again, I always do enjoy them in whatever form they go as. Russ was playing when we arrived, we were just in time to hear him sing Mary Ellen Carter, a favourite song of mine. Blackstone were very good, especially with 4 of them, Copper Kettle, well, what can I say about them. They are great friends of ours and I really enjoy singing along with their songs, the chorus song sheets are a great idea. Well not long now to the 'Real' Festival. Who is coming to that?

You almost make me wish I had managed to get there but "Folk on the Coast" was a marvellous alternative for me and I did throw Cleckie Fliers around.
Cleckheaton even got a mention from Les Barker during his mini eistedffod. LOL
Counting down to the start of the festival proper. 4th July!! Any americans attending I wonder.

The mini bus runs as often as required. Quite often it does a complete circuit, Campsite, Town Hall, back to Campsite. When things are quiet the driver will have a radio so that he can be called when required. There is also another bus running from the Town Hall to the Whitcliffe Hote. (a new venue for this year).

It's just a pity that people like Squeezeboxc don't get off there backsides and do some thing to help small towns like Heckmondwike to get back up. Instead of slaggin them off I take it you was there then Squeezboxc or was you just mouthing off it's up to us to try to help get more people in to places like that it is no wonder that small towns are dying I for one will keep trying

Cleckheaton is a festival that likes to try and involve everybody. We take the festival to the people in the hope of keeping live music alive. This year we are going into varous pubs around Cleckheaton like The West End at Gomersal, and The Old Saw. There will also be various performances in Cafes within Cleckheaton for the general public to enjoy.

It might seem that way Mr Happy but the feet fail to fully function for quite a different reason.

I think it's Ray's alter ego that comes to Saddleworth cos he always appears relatively sober there.

Or is it the company he keeps at Holmfirth?

Can't get there till tea time on Sat. If I'm camping do I just turn up at the campsite and pay there ( £8.00 per night as I am not a ticket holder) or do I have to get a camping ticket first from the festival office in the town hall?
Could someone please let me know. Thanks

there's nowt matter with Cleckheaton FF but as you ask the team Bradshaw Mummers performed to 1 solitary drunk and waited until the bus returned to pick them up and to deposit Witchmen to perform to the same audience, i think it unfair to be called a whinger when any Saturday afternoon Heckmondwike is like a ghost town, Batley or Dewsbury would have made more sense to take dance or performance to the general public.
i know some teams who will perform to the opening of an envelope.(if the cap fits wear it)
this is my personal opinion and not necessarily that of the team

OK Ken the thing about taking Morris teams down in to Hekmondwike was a excrement and yes it did not work so we have to ask why ?, Heckmondwike is no deferent to many other towns the fact is that supermarkets are killing of our town centres. But Batley and Dewsbury arn't   like thy used to be do we see a time when we will all be performing on Supermarket car parks I do certainly hope not

Soldier Boy. If you turn up at the campsite on Saturday, somebody will take your money and give you a camping permit. To my knowledge we are not selling any campsite tickets at the Festival desk.

As Cleckywike has just proved in his last post he is quiet open to sorting out little problems and taking them on board. Trying new things to try to make things better don't seem a bad idea to me. Ok so it didn't work it's still full marks to the Cleck FF team for spending Months and Months, Day's and Day's, Hours and Hours times twenty one making sure that Cleckheaton Folk Festival run as smoothly as possible.

What made me see Red was a Guest making negative last moment comments (Mudcatters know it's always a Guest that whinges) criticising people who have spent the last year getting ready for the festival. Don't you think the time for Suggestions was on the day and to the committee or as soon as possible afterwards. I'll bet Cleckheaton has a festival feedback form.

I bet I know one past Bradshaw Mummer who would have loved to been performing with you in Heckmondwike. Wouldn't surprise me to find out he was there watching and cheering you on.

We always do have a Festival Feedback form which is handed out to everybody in their programme and left on seats in venues etc. This year there will be a special Festival Feedback form organised by a team for Kirklees Council, this is part of the agreement of a grant that we received. I hope as many people as possible will find the time to complete this form and that Kirklees will keep allowing us grants to help fund the Festival.

ps - forgot to mench the other big treat was to visit the Music Room again

Hadn't seen the new premises before - definite musicians paradise even if not buying anything - spent a happy hour in the various 'playrooms' sampling the delights of the squeeze & pluck depts.

They'd also a most enigmatic multi-necked electro guitar on display.

A group of us gathered by it with some staff to ponder how on earth anyone could play it - a staff volunteered that it'd have to be a very tall, strong person with extremely long arms!!

Anyone else pop in there??

I'm just coming down to land after a weekend of fantastic festival fun. So many great events it's hard to prioritise but, apart from the foot stamping success of the main stage concerts here are a few fringe goodies.
John Prentice sat in a town centre cafe "nattering", playing, singing and entertaining the customers for an hour. Anne Curan greeting the early early risers on Sunday, an hour of beautiful music and great food in another town centre cafe followed by another hopur of the Wilsons to really wake us up.
The festival finale in the Marsh pub, an under canvas success despite the short shower (I took my mac) and free grub too.
All three were new initiatives this year just like the dancing in Heckmondwike. It's only by trying new stuff that we find out what works (and can be kept) and what flops (and can be cancelled or corrected).
Jim
How about telling us NOW what you liked and hated to make the 22nd (Yes there will be another) as big or better success as the 21st!!

Well not exactly - liked almost everything, however a puzzling campsite facility was the bloo Tardis with the interesting instruction on the door 'Do not not use unless in emergency'

I assure the organisers it was an emergerncy every time!!

I had en-suite camping as I camped next to the Tardis Loo thing.
Tried it twice and both times ended up in 1894. Dissapointing!
Left me cap behind. Would someone please go back and fetch it.
They might find a cap saying 'Huddersfield Town football play-off final at Cardif 2004' rather confusing!

If you lost your Trilby hat on Saturday Night Chris you left it on a chair in the Whickham after several people turned it into a Flat Cap it ended up on the mantle piece.

Well I enjoyed the weekend I would like to suggest that the Festival Committee add a Drinking For Lancastrian Softies Workshop to the itinerary as well as Ray Padget's Wibberly Wobberly Walking Workshop. I did notice one or two Wibberling when they should have been wobberling again this year.

I can't really single anyone out as all the artists were wonderful - but I'd never seen Isambarde or Seize The Day before, and was bowled over by both the groups. Why can't the day job be this enjoyable?!!!
