As a result of the demise of the Lancaster/Glasson Maritime festival, how will habitués be spending this Easter?

In my case, after picking up my Czech partner up from Stansted, we will spend the rest of the weekend relaxing, and the rest of the week going out for day trips. After going there for 18 consecutive years, being in London felt a bit strange for the last two years.

This isn't a direct substitute, but there are good things happening at the Gosport & Fareham Easter Festival in Hampshire.

Like all the best festivals it has concertina sessions, too - there's a separate thread on that subject.

A lovely weekend away staying in a friends garden and singing in the garage. You better believe it! A smashing bank holiday weekend at a DIY mini fest. I always sing a shanty or two in memory.

My friend and I started a female shanty duo (Magwitch) at what turned out to be the last Lancaster Shanty Festival. Pity about its demise.

Keith and I are planning to spend the Saturday in Baccup - which Keith hasn't been able to do for years and years. We'll miss Lancaster, though - especially all our friends.

Cheers and enjoy your Easter eggs.

Interesting that you mention Bacup Sylvia. Before Lancaster started Bacup was the place to be on Easter Saturday nominally to watch the Coconut Dancers. The pubs were packed with singers and musicans and a great time was had by all. I went for several years with various people - we even got a coach trip together one year from the Dicconson Arms folk club in West Lancashire so we could all have a drink. The year Lancaster started I went to Bacup with my Dad and the place was relatively empty - there were some musicians in the Queens but no singers. I never went again. Maybe it's time to revive the Bacup tradition on Easter Saturday!

Cheers
Mark

I think it was at Shotley in the early 80s that I got a lung infection which took me out of circulation for 2 or 3 months. Not very fond memories.....

Keith and Sylvia,
You won't miss all your friends with any luck, Anne and I should be there on Saturday. Never been to a session there so I don't know what pubs are likely to be the ones to visit.

In the early 70's we (The Bothy) all used to go in a coach to Bacup.
If you are in the Lancaster area on Goood Friday. We (The Southport Swords) will be guests of John of Gaunt Morris and along with Rivington Morris will be dancing in Milnthorpe in the morning & Arnside in the afternoon.
Cheers

Normally about this time I would be arriving at the Royal George Hotel and exchanging stories about how good/bad the journey up was.

I'm terrible, Robin, I know, but I don't know the name of the pub where the session is - I think it's the Little Queens - anyone able to confirm. I know it's in the centre of the town - just follow the music.

See you there.

Cheers

To put things in perspective, some years ago most of the cash allocated by the Arts Council for 'Lancashire', was spent in Lancaster and Morecambe. It was pressure by folk in the rest of Lancashire that enabled what cash was available to be spread to other events.

The Lancaster Maritime Festival never had a penny from the Arts Council, Dixiedoll - it was funded by the City Council and private sector sponsorship.
