Same time as Priddy festival though.

I've heard something about the Widget Women over there.

Last time I was on the Widget Isle. It was to race my bike around the Island. Ended up falling off and finished 25th. Which out of 120 wasn't too bad.

Wrap your dry clothes,tent, sleeping bag, guitar, in a bin bag and dive in. The waters lovely!

Ferries - we have secured a really good deal with Red Funnel ferries (Southampton) for travel to the festival. Works out about £15 per person if you fill your car (or camper). Details of a deal with WightLink (Portsmouth and Lyimington) should be sorted out soon. Don't buy from the ferry companies - go to www.folkstation.co.uk and get your inclusive ticket directly from us - much cheaper!

We are still finalising complicated things like caravans but it will always be better to book via folkstation. Contact via the FolkStation website.
The sooner you can let us know when you would like to travel the better chance we have of getting a suitable sailing.
I Would recommend Thursday evening ferries as they are generally less crowded and you then get a full day Friday.
Our discount offer covers Thursday to Monday.
Don't forget the Early bird ticket is only available until the end of January.
Very productive meeting last night, really getting exciting now.

OK, the early bird has flown away with all his tickets (probabably to somewhere warmer at this time of year). The good news is that a slight hiccup with the ferry arrangements has been sorted today and it has turned out a bit cheaper than I said on an earlier post.

We now have a fixed rate for a car/camper on the ferry with up to 4 adults that works out at £12.50 a head. Buy direct from FolkStation using the booking form, or just phone us for other combinations and for large vans, etc. A web-based credit card arrangement is in the pipeline when we get round to sorting out the details with one of the reputable operators - probably Ticketline. Or you can buy through the steam railway's web site as well!!!!!!! All the details on our web site.

We are getting very excited about this years event as year 3 looks like it is building up to something very special.

I'm told that there are red squirrels on the Isle of Wight - is that so? Are there any living near Folkstation?

I'm also told that Tennyson wrote Crossing The Bar while looking out across the Solent, which suggests he may have thought the Almighty lived on the Isle as well:

'I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the Bar.'

Yes there are red squirrels all over the island, we saw one yesterday in fact. If you like the look of grey squirrels then the red is even cuter, small and delicate in comparison.

I can't guarantee there will be any at Havenstreet but I would be surprised if they didn't make an appearance.

Booked acts let us do the worrying for them!!
Just let us know when you would prefer to travel and what you will be travelling in and/or caravan etc.
The same applies to stewards and those actually buying Season tickets, we look after your ferry booking.

We have negotiated special rates for Thursday through to Monday

Contact us via the website
www.folkstation.co.uk
for more details..It looks complicated but it really is a good deal, even better for four people travelling.

And we still need stewards - look at

General info: if you have bought a ticket the ferry should have been sorted already, if you have volunteered to steward and we have a form from you, then the ferries are being sorted now.
If you want to steward there is still time..see post above.

If you want to buy a ticket see other link above.

It's getting so close now the best way to book your ticket is online at
Ticketfarm

The Isle of Wight's new web ticket service.

Check the guest list on the website, it is still growing, as the confirmations come in.

FolkStation

As well as the major guests we are planning a full programme of Sessions, Folk Clubs, Morris, Storytellers, BEER, Food (new this year, full cooked breakfast )

The programme is being finalised as we speak, so more tempting details soon. But why wait, you know it makes sense.

I could still do with a few more stewards, the best and most economical way to get involved in this embryonic festival.

Yes I really want to be a Steward

Please be quick. One of the charms of the Island is the sea crossing but it is a logistical nightmare to sort out in a hurry.

See many of you there then, and don't forget choccies for the Mudgather.

Campsite opens Thursday afternoon 5 p.m.
Remember that Haven Street is a working steam railway. The FolkStation site is across the tracks so there is no vehicle access while the trains are running.
Make sure you arrive before 10 a.m. or after 5p.m. if you need to get your car etc. on to the campsite.
There is a large car park and pedestrian access all day of course.
There must be a blues song about singing on the wrong side of the tracks?

Now printing the music for our concertina part-playing sessions. We're definitely doing arrangements of

The Speaking Figure (William Winter MS)
Southrepps Hornpipe (Albert Hewitt, Suffolk)
and Foul Weather Call (Sussex).

In case we need more we're also bringing Galopede, Lord Nelson's Waltz (Jackson) and Galloway Girth (Sussex).

Because I'm a great believer in being prepared, we'll also bring spare copies of half a dozen or so arrangements we did for Whitby last year.

Right - we've just got our timetable. We'll do the first group of tunes on Saturday and the second on Sunday.

I look forward to trying the local beers, having fond memories of a barrel of Burts which squirted hops over the ceiling and the Squire during a Chingford Morris Ale in the summer of 1976. As I remember, he was forced to stand with his finger in the spile-hole for a considerable length of time, an indignified position for a teetotaller. Alas, Burts is no more, but I'm sure we can find some good alternatives. What do the locals recommend?
