Subject: Banbury Folk Festival 2008
From: Merek'n'Dary
Date: 21 Aug 08 - 12:25 PM

Hello all you Catters!

Just to let you know that this year we will not be using the Town and Country Club for our song sessions, as it has sadly closed down!

The good news is that we will be holding these at Drayton Leisure Golf Centre, where we held our Song & Ale weekend in April this year. (Remember the snow!) The mini buses will be running people from and to the town. Also this is our campervan and caravan site this year, (No outdoor camping at Hanwell Fields this year because of building work) so for those of you with campervans or caravans, you will be able to stumble out of the sing and straight into bed!Nick will be getting in some Hook Norton Ales to aid your slumbers!

As well as song sessions there will be the usual Big Sing and Mudgather as well as other song sessions. This year we will be joined by Tom Lewis. More details to follow.

Tickets are selling fast and only a few days left to get them at the early-bird price.

Check out the website www.banburyfolkfestival.co.uk

Hope to see you there!

Merek'n'Dary

Looks like another fabulous festival in store, well done to Merek'n'Dary!! Am very glad about having Drayton for campers/caravans & Sings, it's a brill venue (even with snow) with an excellent & welcoming host. Really looking forward to it!

As soon as I get details of times for the Gather I'll let you know *grin*

Hey Dave, does this mean you'll be singing at the MudGather?

Brill to see that we'll have some wonderful Singers at Banbury, looking forward to it!! Yes Anne, the Golf Club is a Fabulous venue but there probably won't be a Snowman competition this time *I hope*

Don't forget the MudGather, it's 2pm-5pm Saturday - bring songs & tunes, hugs & chocolate! Oh, and raffle prizes too! I wonder if the 'perpetual raffle prize' will turn up.....

Anne's daughter Alison is playing at another venue at the same time so she is naturally going to see her and leaving me to get on with it!! Never come between a mum and her kids!!!

Oh Tig & Badger, Mrs Duck and all the associated Duckettes, we'll miss you all!!! So sorry we won't be seeing you at Banbury, but hope to see/hear you again soon!

Looks like there are a lot of Catters coming to the MudGather again this year, though of course some will be working and/or supporting working progeny - apologies accepted of course, but you'll miss the chocolate *all the more for us then*

I've been on a steep learning curve & have set up a very basic web-page for myself, here 'tis! Positive suggestions & advice will be gratefully received, it's just a bit of fun though *grin* I can't quite work out how to get rid of the 'click' when it opens, obviously something to do with the sound bites but....

To stop any confusion, I should have said that the details about HB that I gave above are the updated ones, rather than what it says on the website at the moment.

Just wondering whether the Golf Club campsite will be open Sunday night or whether we have to be off 'as usual'.

Don't know the answer Sue, am sure Merek or Dary will pop on the thread soon & reply!

We'll probably have our new kitten (Rusty) in the caravan with us, she's too little to leave at home on her own yet. Also too small to pass around at the MudGather I'm afraid, we'll have to stick to Ginger Tom *grin*

All being well there is likely to be late night sings at all the campsites. No one should miss out. Don't forget the Sunday morning legendary Singing Breakfast with Alhambra will still be at Hanwell Fields, for those of you who can get up after the late night sessions that is! We will be running buses from Drayton and St Marys and once again the school PTA will be cooking the breakfast!

Weather forecast for the weekend is sunny! Definitely no snow!

Forget the credit crunch ..... Come and enjoy yourselves at Banbury.

Mental note ..... don't forget to buy some chocolate !

Hoping to get to the gather after my first spot on Saturday. Rosanna was coming with me but now can't make it which is a shame as we'd worked out a couple of tunes to do.
Looking forward to seeing Bob Fox and Stu Luckley, last saw them about 30 years ago..

Wow! A wonderful weekend. Splotty and I thought it was the best one yet. The weather was beautiful. Highlights for me were obvioiusly enjoying doing our concert spots and the Spoons Workshop. I am always amazed how people can play spoons like that after just one hour's tuition and then perform in the Spoons Orchestra of Great Britain. Thank you all spoonists you were wonderful once again. Also the rest of the concert in the Town Hall Saturday night, the impromptu busk outside the Arts centre on Sunday afternoon in the sunshine with Keith Donnelly and Co, and the Mellstock band in the Theatre. Thanks lots Derek and Mary. XX

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend with lots of singing at the Golf club and the Mill, my thanks also to Derek and Mary. Highlight as expected was Bob Fox and Stu Luckley, still as brilliant as they ever were.   The singaround at the Reindeer on Saturday night was a belter, I'm just sorry I couldn't have got there earlier.

I'm just hoping now that my work rota works out for next year.
