Subject: Bedworth Folk Festival 27-29 Nov (UK)
From: GUEST,MalcBedworth
Date: 04 Oct 09 - 09:36 AM

Time is fast approaching for this years Bedworth Festival!

See all the guest list and other information on the festival web site. New for this year is additional parking for caravans and campervans closer to the town centre venues (VERY near to the great Black Bank pub!) this also means we can accommodate far more vans, although it still looks as if we will sell out of space in the next few weeks so if you haven't already booked book quickly.

As always we have planned in a Catters meet - this will be at The Old Black Bank on Saturday afternoon 3pm - 5pm hosted as always by Hils (MGAS) this is a totally free event so even if you don't have a festival ticket pop in and say hello!

As well as the usual host of concerts, folk clubs and singarounds, there will be the fantastic Craft Fair in the Civic Hall followed by the Grand Ceilidh with Pete Grassby and The Aardvark Ceilidh Band. This year we have a really spectacular set of dance displays throughout the town centre (well in excess of 150 dancers!). Proceedings begin 5:30pm on Friday and go through (almost continuously!) to closing time Sunday evening. Highlights of the week-end will doubtlessly include the Friday evening late session dedicated to the memory of Johnny Collins who has been the backbone of the festival since it's inception, some special themed events include Derek Giffords "Birds in Song" and Liz Holland and Jeff Parton with their latest show - so there is something for everyone. We are currently working on the programme which should be on the web site by the end of the month.

We are also still looking for stewards so if you want to join the fun for free in exchange for helping keep everyone safe contact Gill Gilsenan on 078 1248 7331 or Drop her an email. Thanks for your time. Malc.

Hi Malc

It's one of the highlights of my year!

I'm fairly certain I've asked you for a tiny camper spot at the rugby club but, if not, can we have one please?

Blessings

Just a reminder, if you want campervan or caravan space for Bedworth please book soon - the space has started to go really fast over the last few days. Also a reminder about the Ralph McTell concert in the Civic Hall friday evening - you get a £5 discount if you have booked a week-end festival ticket, saves you nearly a third off the price! All the details on the Festival Website.


Thanks, Malc.

Ooooooooooo - I'm SO looking forward to this. It has to be one of my favourite festivals.   I'm busy reupholstering the smallest camper in the world in readiness. (Thicker curtains etc!)

We are intending to go to The Bear and Ragged Staff on the Friday evening for a bite to eat and a 'jar'. We usually see a load of festival goers in there so, if you're around, come and join us.

I'm wondering if Bedworth Civic Hall is still the Hottest Place On Earth.

The Salt Town Poets were there a few years ago and nearly fried in one of the conference rooms.

Apparently the heating system was controlled by computer from nearby Nuneaton and nobody in Bedworth could override the system.

As I said at the time, I've been hot at Middlewich Festival, which is, let's face it, held in the middle of Flaming June, but never, ever, that hot.

Just wondered. Have a great festival, folks.

Looks like the White Swan isn't involved unfortunately, but the Arts Centre looks like it's being used for almost all of Sunday, so that's a big bonus.

Quite a lot going on at the Black Bank.

Hi all,

Just a quick visit to say parking at the Rugby Club is now full, our second site behind the Black Bank pub still has some space, but is rapidly filling.

Provisional running order is on the web site (shouldn't be too many changes now), and even the weather is looking reasonable (well, for the end of November!)

Here's the usual invitation to everyone to come along and dance or play with Herbaceous Border.
Sat 1.40 to 2.40pm outside the Civic Hall in what's rather grandly called the Health Centre Piazza. (When it's been wet we have been know to dance inside the Civic Hall)
Sun 1.00 to 2.30pm (or p'raps stopping a bit sooner) in the Old Black Bank Car Park.

It's always nice to know beforehand who's planning to turn up!

Hope you'll all be able to come along to the MudGather, Saturday at the Old Black Bank, starting at 3pm & possibly finishing at 5.30pm. there'll be a MudRaffle (I'll try to get it drawn at 5pm) with proceeds going to MudCat funds which will help to pay the server bills etc.

So please, seek out those old white elephants, unwanted gifts, spare coins for the raffle tickets, purchase (or create) some chocolate and come to the Gather!!!!

Talking of Herbaceous Border on Sunday - there's a bit of confusion about the times!
My original e-mail from Malcolm said 12.30-2.00 and that's what I've sent out in the HB Newsletter.
On the web-site it says 1.00 - 2.30 and that's what I posted up above.
I don't know yet what it says in the programme but I reckon I will aim to be there before 12.30

The forecast for the Midlands looks quite good for Sunday though it apparently will still be bucketing down here in Devon.

Hi Sue,
The programme says 1pm - I just moved it back a bit as you will be using the car park and we thought it would be safer to leave it a bit until the traffic arriving for the music session had slowed down. By all means start earlier if you want - but be mindful of the risk!. We sent you a full running order over the week-end but your server is still not accepting it (see PM).   The running order on the web site is now "final" (or as final as these things can be!)
... and the weather forecast for the weekend ....mild but wet, sunshine sunday - that could be the first time we have EVER had sunshine at Bedworth Festival! (that's from the BBC so it must be right ;-))
Cheers
Malc.

Another hectic Festival weekend. I am sure you make it busier for us all year by year Malc.
Sorry I didn't make it along to the gather.
Biggest regret, didn't manage to get all the words to the 'Female Plumber' at the Saturday afternoon singaround.

Well it was my first time there so I can't comment on weather or not it was a good one ....... but I definately enjoyed it.
The only conplaint is that the "cat" was passed the wrong way round the room (or was I just sitting in the wrong place?)
Eather way you can expect me back next time!

Tri were the highlight for us. The question I was asking myself was how do they rehearse living in different parts of the country?

Great job by Malc and Gill and all the rest. We had a great time, but somebody shoot me if I say I'm indoor camping again. I'm too old to make do with 3 hours sleep!

We enjoyed all our sets; audience for our interval set at the Ceilidh were brilliant.

Seemed to be generally more people around, or was it just that without the Swan and Connie club they weren't spread around so many venues?

Oh yes, and Hils was brill yesterday at the Arts Centre yesterday.

Loved it!

Steve

It was and always is a pleasure to sing with you and Christine(Moses and the Ref) and having seen a very small part of what goes on behind the scenes I am full of admiration for Malc Jill and the team. from a performers point of view it all went like clockwork despite all the spanners thrown in! and yes Hill (mgas) was brill

Yes, Tri were my favourite as well. Once again, a very enjoyable festival. A big THANK YOU to Malc and Gill and their team of volunteers and all the performers. And just to prove that the sun can shine in Bedworth in November, I took some photos on Sunday morning - of the church opposite the Civic Hall just because I liked the colour of the sunshine on the stone walls; the Civic Hall to remind us of where there were several excellent concerts on Saturday; several of Sue's Morris dancing workshop in the Black Bank car park and in the afternoon - one photo of the Christmas lights near the Civic Hall.

Gosh,Alice,you even managed to get me in some of your pics !! When I got to the Black Bank on Sunday,I was wearing a short-sleeved shirt,and donned one of Sue's tatter jackets,but by the end of "Upton",I was so cold that I reverted to leather jacket and cloth cap, so that's me playing my harmonica and "improperly dressed" ! But it was a good turn-out,though, and the Brose caravan park was OK, if a bit far away from things !( Mini-bus & driver needed for next year,Malc !). And the "clash" between Mudgatherers and Other Musicians in the pub was rather unfortunate----perhaps another bar,or even another pub,would be better ?

That's where we missed the White Swan unfortunately. On the good side though the fewer venues meant audiences were bigger.

Another lovely festival. Many thanks to Malc, Gill and all those who organised, stewarded, etc.

Had a great time despite the lack of sleep on Friday night.

Really enjoyed our (Moses & the Ref) harmonising with Les on a couple of his songs.

Hils set on Sunday was brill. She just gets better.

We would like to be included in the above. What a great festival Bedworth is. The friendship is lovely, camping and caravanning great, in fact nothing to fault it. Thank you yet again Malc and Jill.

See you all at next years festival and probably before around the Festival circuit.

What a fantastic weekend, thanks so much to Malc, Gill, Claire and all the team of volunteers and stewards for producing another great Bedworth! Lots of my very favourite performers on the programme & I got a few songs in too *grin* (many thanks for your kind words you lovely folks, cheques in post)

Wonderful to see and hear so many Catters at the MudGather, I'm just so sorry that the Cat took so long to get around the room, which meant that several Catters left before we could hear them. I usually announce that people should let me know if they need to go early so that I can try to fit everyone in, but I must have forgotten, I am sorry!

One of the highpoints for me was that Abuwood set up her phone so that Treaties1 could listen in, we were so glad that Theresa could join us. Thanks Alison!!

The MudRaffle raised an amazing total of £104, which I'll be transferring to the 'Friends of MudCat UK' account which helps to pay the bills. Thanks to everyone who brought prizes, and for buying tickets and extra tickets too!

Super Winter break. Would recommend to all folk music followers - wide range of music,most tastes seemed to be catered for.Organisation with an easy hand. So glad to see musicians session with young players. Lots of familiar faces is always a sure sign of a good weekend. Definitely (hopefully) see you all next year.    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL.

Well that's another festival under our belts and I think I say with confidence that it was yet another success. Malc and I were very busy over the weekend but still managed to enjoy ourselves - Well I did and I hope Malc did especially during the Rock 'n' Roll interlude on Friday evening, which he took part in and seemed to go down very well. I would like to personally thank those of you who were guest acts for your contribution to the weekend and also those of you who were stewards. Your help in making the festival safe for everyone was very much appreciated. Thank you everyone! I promise I will do something about the way the Rota is sent out for next year!!! The greatest thanks have to go to those who actually bought tickets, without you we would not have a festival - we are looking forward to welcoming you next year so don't forget to book early!! It just remains for me to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and Happy 2010. Look forward to seeing you on the circuit of festivals next year.

Best regards
Gill

Tri enjoyed playing at Bedworth, despite Neal being ill: he had a throat op the next week.

It is nice to play in venues where you can see the whites of the audiences eyes and it feels more like an expanded friendly folk club. In some ways much more preferable than being on high distant stages.

To those who enjoyed the sets, we hope to see you next year around the circuit next year.

To answer a question above, they rehearse monthly and we are very familiar with the M50mph (M6 North).

Best Wishes
