Wonder if anyone local to Bromyard has any info. on how the camping field(s) have fared after the heroic efforts by the tractor drivers to get us out of the quagmire that was last year's festival. They were marvellous but left huge craters all over the field. We're hoping that the field will have been flattened/ploughed/rolled, or whatever needs to be done, so we can use our caravan again. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the fields will be habitable as we've already bought our tickets and are looking forward to another great festival.

Rest assured the Bromyard site is OK and with the improvements,some of which are being carried out as we speak,it will be even better.
The farmer who actually owns the camping fields has,with some assistance from volunteers,repaired all the damage so that you wouldn't know it had ever occured.
The long range Weather Forecast is very promising for the next three weeks so it's looking good.
I wonder if Mr Happy,before he gets to rapturous about the old site,remembers the old toilets,the frosts and the 1981 Bromyard Hurricane,when half the tents went walkabout.
And I've just remembered the bars only ever sold M & B Brew Eleven!!!!!Yeughh!!!
No Wyevale HPA.No Butty Bach and no hot showers.
Ah the Good Old Days.
See you all in September.
JP2.

I think what in part caused the problem last year was the torrential rain in the couple of weeks leading up to the festival plus that final downpour on the Friday afternoon. I've just looked at a forecast for the days leading up to and including Friday 11th and apart from a couple of odd showers it's looking good - with Thursday 10th being blazing sunshine. Fingers crossed it stays that way but looking good so far!

Refresh - only ten more days to go. I see there's a link to a weather forecast on the Bromyard FF website and things are still looking good.

Now come on all of you...where is the positive thinking?? We all know that when the morris men start dancing a lovely, balmy, summery, micro climate is created, but only if you BELIEVE !
Regarding the ditches on the old site.. however much I tried to avoid them I always fell in at some point, usually after a few ciders.
The really cold year was 1984. I made a mercy dash home to gather up spare blankets, quilts etc for our camping neighbours.
I'll nip over to Bromyard to examine the field, after our next deluge,due later, and let you know.
Positive thinking...buy some sun tan lotion.

I'll be there Thursday so i'll try to get to the evening at the Falcon. What time does it start?               Ms Lemon i have the 'item' you lent me, i'll find you at the festival if not at the Falcon. I've been trying to track you down all summer but you weren't at your usual Warwick or Shrewsbury.

John J : The concert starts at 8.30 on 10th Sept (Thurs) and is profiled in the BFF programme. It's in the concert room at the back of the Falcon, in the back yard/carpark. All very posh.

No I'm not at the actual festival, I'm trading at an Agricultural show in North/west Herefordshire that weekend. I also don't do Shrewsbury festival anymore I have a bigger event for the whole of that week.
See you at the Falcon.

I remember being pushed out of the old field before I had a caravan. Mud - you never saw the like, and it was raining, and the tow vehicle ? I think they found one. But I was just clever enough at driving (with help) to not qualify.

Ice inside the tent? You still hear stories of tent zips locked solid from frozen condensate. Global warming and the earlier w/e have changed all that.

And you try telling young people today.

One guy told me about his drinking around the campfire (where is it now?) sitting on a log.

He awoke the next morning lying flat on the ground with his feet over the same log. Frost all around him.

Never did him any harm.

I have just come off the the 'phone to a fellow director in Bromyard and he tells me that the main site and camping areas are in perfect condition.
We are putting in a new permant roadway over the weekend that will run from the Ceilidh House down past the Craft Fair finishing at the Rifle Club road.
For those that remember last year this is roughly where the temporary aluminium trackway was.
I don't have much more to report except that the weather report is excellent,the lineup is brilliant and I'm looking forward to my Whitby fish and chips provided by Moor & Coast.
See you all on the 11th.
John Price,Director Bromyard Folk Festival.

Well Done, John Price !! A kindred spirit on "Mudcat" at last ! I have been writing 'phone ( and 'plane,and 'bus ,as one should) for years and years ,and am tired of explaining to today's "Yoof",and indeed their parents in many cases,as to why this should be so !!

My wellies are red so can't leave them at home, but don't expect to use them. Just found an entirely red pair of (cough) skateboarding shoes, should I re-new my mebership of the Peter Pan Society?

Stewarding in the ceilidh tent. (When not dancing in it).

As it happened I did a set and was accompanied for my final (self penned) song by Roger Butler (chucklefoot) who is brilliant. Then he took the stage with his rendition of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, but it was so funny (spoonerised) that the whole room was in tears of laughter. This guy MUST be booked for next year. He's helping Jan the Van out this weekend, and you really should go and see him. He's also a one man band.
