Whitchurch was a great little festival ( I should know cos I was festival director for a while) But it got overtaken by some of the much larger and well financed festivals which appeared in the nineties.
Lots of now well known artists took their first bow there and plenty of established acts including Artisan, John Kirkpatrick , Sarah Grey, Brian Peters, Cyril Tawney & Harry Boardman to name but a few.
It should be a great reunion and we look forward to seeing as many of the "old stagers" as can make it. Being organised by Sue Rampton from Whitchurch who is no mean singer herself. I'll try and keep an update on plans

The Red House was also the founding base for Basingclog until some stupid pratt(aka Pete Martin) bought the place and tried to turn it into a Bistro. All he managed was to turn everyone away including the Folk Club and the Festival. Do't know what its like nowadays but may take a look.
The Harvest Home is on Winchester Road not far from the Silk Mill also well worth a visit and a place which also played a part in the festival I well remember Len Berry singing Poverty Knock accompanied by the sound of the water wheel and the spinning machines. Brillliant.

Hi all,

Great you're all so keen to support the Whitchurch Folk Festival Reunion. However, please bear in mind that it's not a full fledged festival, it's a free get-together for old & new friends, singarounds, musicians' session etc., run by local clubs with a ceilidh in the evening & hopefully some guest performers. All are kindly giving their time and services for free. That said, we think it will be a great day! Brenda, if you read this, Martin & I would love you to get in touch. You (or anyone else) can contact me on 01256 896477. Hope to see you all again soon.

Great news - Basingclog will be doing a dance spot at the ceilidh. They have a long connection with the Whitchurch Festival, and in many ways owe their origins to the Festival. They were always first on the list of dance teams, although some say it was because they were local and didn't have to travel far. However, they are a great and colourful team and well worth seeing

If any mudcatters have memories of Whitchurch (good or bad) please consider posting them here as I may try & make some sort of compilation.. I have already noted some of those who have already contributed. I have one rather vivid memory of Cyril Tawney at Whitchurch and having to push him onto a train (destination unknown) on the monday morning. Some may recall having to "dump" a well known Morris side in a field by themselves so they could play their one chanter bagpipe without disrupting the camp site and half of Hampshire.

Perhaps it could be the start of something big?? Hope so.
Anyone want to buy a banjo - I've still got plenty.

Perhaps next year - could we revive the tradition of the Whitchurch Big Band - anyone who was at the Sunday afternoon gigs in the Parish hall should remember this.

Oh dear, that's the weekend of Swanage festival, so I guess we won't see Roly at Swanage this year.... and we're committed to Swanage so won't be able to get to Whitchurch.

All best wishes for a great reunion.

Kitty
