Rochester Sweeps Festival. The largest street folk dance festival in Europe.

Rochester Sweeps festival is wall to wall Morris bonanza on the High Street on the May Day Weekend in Rochester Kent.   Day and evening sing around sessions (various venues, days and times), couple of live stages and some electric music in different pubs. Concert this year is Kate Rusby in the Cathedral. I think there is a fair/mop or something like in the Castle Grounds too.

I would post a link to the Medway Council brochure but it is usually not published until about 2 weeks prior to event.

Hey Growler - Is the GI still Morris headquaters for this year's Sweeps? If so that is going to make the sessions wilder than ever.

We plan to attend all except the Summer Beer. Will be travelling back from Scotland.

Wow! The Sweeps programme is early this year? Amazing. Ironically now that I don't need it, as I know I will be at the GI. And at the GI and at the GI. With maybe one little side trip to the GI.

Well actually we plan to be there Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday afternoon and maybe Sunday evening.

Is the Saturday afternoon session only 2 hours? It seemed longer last year.

Wish we could come Friday night as well, but already made plans to provide lift to one person and to meet 2 others on Saturday. Don't know if I could get accommodation for Friday night this late in the game anyway.

Growler's correct Tam - the programme says one thing, the actuallity is another. Sunday on the other hand often involves Gastove with invited mike spots, from about 3pm to 8pm so the mid-day session gets a bit curtailed.

They are all going down to Greenwich for a swim in the Themes. You never know they might all end up in Rochester or worse still In RBs back garden for the next flood session........................ We can all do the Frog Song.

I asked this last year. I believe the answer was the only campsite (only during Sweeps) is on the grammar school grounds and that is only available to Morris Sides. I think Richard Bridge told me that.

Can't wait for Chris to retire little over 6 years, so we can move to Rochester (or thereabouts). We hope to buy a house that has some crash space for friends.

There is no legitimate useful campsite. Howver there is some land off Cory's lane that you might get away with fly-pitching on after dark, particularly if you find a dark corner out of sight. Don't blame me if you get nicked.

VT / Richard thanks very much for the above advice.

But the above sounds to me a complete
Par-larva. I may camp at Knockholt on the Tuesday night alone but satisfied that my tent + belongings will still be there when I stagger back up Stonings Lane from the Tally Ho. gone midnight

Oh she wont blame you Richard for getting nicked. Oh No She,ll blame me without doubt.

But the thought of prowling around in the dark trying to pitch a tent in some Dark shadow does not appeal to me and hopefully after reading this will have the same effect with Polish Bird.
She will want to know where the nearest Cave is next.

There are Napoleonic forts overlooking the Borstal area, but I think they were sold to nutters who wanted to build private dwellings in them. There is Fort Amhurst.

If you have a dingy with an outboard there is Dead Man's Island for tenting, but be careful of the currents.

THere is some scrub land the Strood side of the river, behind Morgan's timberyard and past the moorings - and if you pitch under the trees you might stay hidden for the duration, but I would not fancy your chances of staggering there from the GI without putting your foot in something - possibly the Medway.

Indeed Richard those forts on the Medway.

One is owned by Jim Gardener of Caterham. He also owns Chislehurst Caves in Kent. Which is where my Polish friend works.
I worked down Chislehurst caves for 25 years prior to going to The War Museum.

I am very sensible when pissed I stay well clear of rivers . Drink and drink do not mix well
The Medway is a sod of a river to navigate on a boat let alone swim. The currents are lethal. I have Canoed the Medway several times in the past and consider it more Dangerous then the Themes and thats a killer too.

There are some very iffy woods the other end of Upnor past the Yacht club - I really doubt if anyone would find you there if you pitched a little camouflaged bivvy. There is a legal right of way (footpath) through the yacht club but most people go along the beach past the Yacht Club and the boathouse and then climb into the woods. Warning - there is 2 feet of water on the beach at spring high tides. Don't fall in while pissed. I know some people who lived behind the boathouse in an asbestos shack for a year - we called it the Blair Witch Project.

The woods near the KA are I think all MoD, and I don't know how long you would remain undiscovered, even in a little camo bivvy.

Hi Melodeonboy re your question above.
Why I dont want to go to Andys Snacks.
When I phoned Andys I was told B&B £20.00. This was a mistake and rose to £25.00. Ok so what its only a £5. Once there I took a nap and woke at 730. Had a shower that was Ok.

I think I told You Melodeonboy & Growler That I only had electricity in the room for the main light the TV did not work nor did the bedside lamps there were no sockets in the room and the wires all disappeared through the floor. There was no one to turn to re The Lights, TV. they had all gone home.

So I thought Ok I am going to see John Barden and the Bardetts I wont want to watch TV when I got back from the concert has it would be late, gone midnight and I turn In straight away. So what no TV. No bed side lights.

When I woke up next morn I went down for me Breakfast and was told the breakfast was not in with the price of the room so I would have to pay extra for that.

Thats what pissed me off. About Andys Snacks. And why I do not wish to return.

Hows he gonna get from Rochester to Upnor and Why.

1st part of question Easy I would get a train to Strood and walk it or hitch. Like I did last year.

I have a distant memory, of taking a prisoner to Reading. The reception officer asked us if we would like a cup of tea. He shouted ' Orderly ' and without complaint, Simon Dee served us tea, which is more than henty does

Eh? I said it was Simon Dee that was related to me, not the manager of Andy's Cafe!

If you carry on confusing me, Pierre, I shall have no alternative but to follow in your footsteps and start another confusion thread!

Good Intent cannot acomodate me Growler due to the fact they will be far to busy during Sweeps, but Dale is looking into a nearby camping site to see if I can camp there for the four days. I am to phone him back in a couple of days?

Unfortunately two other night workers have booked that night off so my request for leave has been denied.

Its a right Par-larva doing night work I get plenty of time off but it appears at present to be all the wrong time off in regards to music & sessions,Typical ?

Still got the sweeps sorted I am doing Sat,Sun & Bank Holiday Monday in B&B, Guess Where?........Yes I said I was not going back there but I have had a word with Kieran THE OWNER and he has given me the room fOR the same price has last time with one breakfast thrown in and with full electric lighting and TV.Paid a deposit and got nice discount.
MY ONLY CONCERNS ARE MY TWO GUITARS.
i WONDER IF DALE AND kAREN WILL ALLOW ME TO LEAVE THEM IN THE PUB UPSTAIRS? oR DOWN IN THE CELLAR.
I am not bothered about anything else I take in there for I will be travelling very light anyway.

'Sunday on the other hand often involves Gastove with invited mike spots, from about 3pm to 8pm so the mid-day session gets a bit curtailed.'

That seems an unfair statement. the afternoon event is a scheduled part of the programme just as much as the lunchtime schedule, and has been for several years. The midday session does not get curtailed - it just comes to the end of its scheduled time.
