I considering coming over this year in July too.
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.

The shortest route to swim is from Lepe beach to Gurnard. About 3 Kilometres( whatever they are!)
Wrap your dry clothes,tent, sleeping bag, guitar, in a bin bag and dive in. The waters lovely!
Oh and don't forget your mobile phone to let us know when you arrive.

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
Stewards
