From: Richard Bridge
Date: 03 May 10 - 05:34 AM

There doesn't appear to be a fred about this yet.

http://www.pigs-sty.com/event.php?id=17

There is a rumour that the teeshirts are back - in sizes to fit folk singers up to 4XL, but I can't find the link to them as merchandise.

Killer lineup this year!

Re tickets
I cannot order any thing in advance due to a elderly relative being ill and me being his overseer i could be called away any time and I could also miss the event altogether if the worst comes to the worst being has such I prefer to pay at the door.I have missed out on other events in the past having paid for them in advance its disappointing to not be able to attend ,more so to be out of pocket and disappointed
I am looking forward very much to this event i went for the first time last year and had a wonderful time
Kind regards to all and look forward to seeing you all there.

Ah, would a kind elf combine my earlier fred about this with this one?

A postal address to which to send cheques would be nice for those who read the Google Accounts terms of service and are not prepared to agree to them (like me!)

I heard a rumour that Teeshirts were back on the counter this year, but if they are I can't find them in the pigsty site. How much are they? Make mine a 3XL please!

It would be very good if FaF teeshirts etc were also on sale on a teeshirt counter if any (and if the nighttime temperatures go down as they have done some previous years the FaF hoodies might be a nice little earner for FaF).

Will the FaF banner be flown?

Point taken - I will put a downloadable order form up on the folkale.co.uk site for those who prefer to order by post.

Address is St Clares, Mill Hill, edenbridge, Kent TN8 5DQ, cheques payable to S. Rule please.

T-shirts are available, price £12 (£8 for childrens') - there'll be a new Ben Scruton Original design for 2010 but please pre-order (Richard - your order noted!) There will only be a few T shirts available "at the counter" (ie not pre-ordered). The cost of production is quite high, and we can't risk getting too many left over - we end up out of pocket. Similar budgetting issues apply to "hoodies", but we might think about having that option for the future!! (Or perhaps customised hot water bottles...?)

The Kentish Horse and the Kentish Pig will be in evidence this year as last....

As much food as you can fit in the caravan. We always have loads of tins. We are lucky enough to have a fridge as well, though it's only small. Spare gas cylinder, loads of matches, drink for when you're not in the pub / marquee. some sturdy boots, or wellies, some warm clothes, for the evening, at least one umbrella (weather insurance.) Treat this as Knockholt with better toilets, and you'll be fine. There's the added luxury of food laid on for you at the pub, but it's not cheap, and the shops are all in Edenbridge.

Registered virginity? Not touching that one with a barge pole.

You need to pay for tickets Fisheye - £25.00 per adult includes camping. Address up near top of thread.

I sent a cheque and SAE, with note stating need camping for caravan on Monday.

Christ this caravan is starting to tick up the costs. Currently bidding on windbreak and wheels chocks. Now let's talk toilet chemicals and special bog roll. Can I use the AquaKem green pearls (in sachets) or does it have to be bottle of liquid. Hate the idea of bottles sloshing around in van when we drive. Does the toilet need aught else?

I can lend you windy. You can use wood for wheel chocks. Bog chemicals you do need, put the bottles in teh gas compartment (I am bringing you spare gaz and the oven cupboard door). I suggest using bottles. YOu can get away with ordinary bogrol. YOu can get away with a bit of rope instead of storm straps for a small awnig and I have some on board.

What's the full address & postcode of the location of the fest? With regards shops, me & Mr. have belatedly discovered the benefits of going to a local farm shop for camping food needs. Beats the pants out of tins of soup: Eggs & bacon brekkie, bread, cheese & pickles lunch, salad veg & local meat on BBQ dinner - it can be a really rather good way to go about eating when camping, if you know what you need and want to eat fresh local produce.

Oh, and as for disposables BBQ's, Noooo! Proper BBQ's are the only way to go for camping - our diddy camping Barby kept us warm all evening in chilly Herefordshire. Jeeze was it cold too, I'm amazed the apple blossom even made a show this year! Brrr.. For Veggies, veggie Barbies can be fabulous eating too. I like marinated asparagus, courgettes (sliced longways), peppers, portobello mushrooms (work as burgers in soft buttered buns), halloumi (greek cheese that holds it's shape when grilled), tofu (great with oriental flavourings), quorn sausages, pitta breads, slices of butternut squash... Not tried aubergine yet.

Mr. Barden, thanks but no thanks! I think those double-vision ciders sound a tad too strong for me.. (if I need any supplies I'll pick 'em up with Tam & TSO in Edenbridge or someplace nearby.) Mind you I did have some apple brandy while camping, you put a capfull in a glass of cider and get 'royal cider' (that's what I read at the museum anyhoo).

As far as I was aware alcoholic drinks consumed in the pub grounds and Marquee area are covered by the Pub's ON licence and should be purchased at the Bar. Booze purchased at an OFF licenced outlet is for drinking in unlicenced areas. I think that it is good prctice and respectful to the Pub landlord that we only drink our own booze in the camping area.

Got to admit Sue that I was somewhat mystified by the £25 being expensive for basic camping in a field. It includes Jez Lowe, Bully Wee and Moveable Feast, and some really stunning local talent (Atlantic Currants, Border Crossing, Ty & Ayesha and of course the fabulous Pigs Ear to name but a few), plus excellent loos, booze and how do you doo's. That is brilliant value in my mind.

I think we've cleared up the pricing confusion, but just in case...

A weekend ticket costs £25 and includes all the concerts and camping. All monies from tickets go to pay the artists fees, so we can do it all again next year. As most people have commented its ridiculously good value.

If you don't have a weekend ticket (ie just a day ticket) and want to camp, it's £5 per pitch per night.

If you don't have a ticket at all, there's not much I can do about it, since we hold it in a public house - but who d'you think pays for it all???? 't'ain't done by magic.

FOOD AND DRINK
The pub usually have Biddenden cider on as well as lots of beer. Can I confirm that only food and drink purchased from the Kentish Horse should be consumed in the marquee, garden or bar - in other words, keep your own on the campsite. Gina and Jeremy at TKH have been hugely supportive of the Ale. Yes, they do a lot of business over the weekend, but you all know (or should) how valuable good landlords/landladies are to live music. TKH hosts a folk session once a month, and has occasional live bands. It's not easy running a rural pub - I call on all good men, women and Leopards to do their duty at the bar....

PRE-FESTIVAL EVENTS (all villages around Edenbridge):
Four Elms pub in Four Elms village are holding an acoustic/folk fest the previous Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. A more contemporary feel than Pigfest. Open mic slots Monday afternoon. Ticket entry.
Tuesday 1st June - extra session at Elsie's, QUeens Arms Cowden Pound. Bits of Pigs (Grant and Sue) will be supporting this session (other bits will be supporting the Punch and Judy in Tonbridge)
Weds 2nd June - Ashdown Morris Men are at the Kentish Horse
Thurs 3rd June - Travelling Folk are at the Kentish Horse
..and Pigfest starts Friday 4th.

T_SHIRTS
I've seen Ben's design for this year's Folk Ale Ts. Brilliant. (Thought, perhaps we should do designer wellies...?)

ANything else?

Oh, weather! Yes, of course it'll be fine. If all this talk of wellies hasn't scared off the rain, the sacrificial Sunday at the Sweeps MUST have done. (Mustn't it?)

Now, as long as Fiat get around to putting a new engine in our (3-year-old!) car in time for towing the caravan up to Markbeech, we're all set...

Damn - I knew I should have done that demanded encore last year when I had the chance, although I had timed my slot pretty much to the minute.

It would be nice to see the Barden on the stage again though - I always suspected that some dolt got him and me mixed up the first year I did an amplified slot there (the tent was the other way round then) and some well meaning person (ie dolt) said I had a great voice: well, round, grey, guitar, we all look the same don't we. That has never been my claim to fame.

Don,

Pub is doing breakfasts from 10.00 -ish. Festival song rehearsal 10.30 in the marquee (if anyone's awake); concert starts 11.30 am because we've got a helluva lot to fit in to allow a good concert spot for the Bully Wee Band on Sunday.

The official unofficial singaround (???) starts around 7.00 pm because we need to finish at 10.30 sharp on Sunday so Gina and her staff can collapse in an exhausted heap....

But there's really nothing to stop folk gathering in the bar for an unofficial unofficial session during the afternoon. (Except the quality of the concert going on in the marquee, including the aforementioned Bully Wees....)

BTW there was an earlier exchange about local shops - I found out last week that Edenbridge Co-op (in its wisdom) is closed for refurbishment from 4 - 7 June. Theres a Tesco Express in Edenbridge High Street and small convenience stores in the garages both ends of town. Farm shop at the Spotted Dog, Penshurst.

You need the wheel levelers to get the van level side to side, as fore and aft is controlled by the corner steadies - and that's all they are. The corner steadies aren't designed to take weight off the wheels.

Precisely! Indeed excessive enthusiasm with the corner steadies can flex the chassis.

Old fridges need to be within 2 1/2 degrees of vertical to work and if they aren't you will ruin them permanently. Modern ones will stand 5 degrees. It's to do with crystallisation in the working gas.

Due to unforeseen problems and my father having a fall recently and circumstances arising from that fall I will not be coming to Pigs Ear on the Wednesday .

I have told folk mob members who were meeting up with me on the Wednesday evening and we have all decided to come on the Thursday now in the stead so has far as I now know there will none of the Eltham lMob on the field Wednesday night, or any one else for that matter I assume?
Its a right bloody palaver but there you go theses things happen (usually to me)

Umm, would a 'fire basket' be iffy to use on site? I have one of those small wood burning cast iron thingies for the garden. It's warm to sit around and you can cook on it like a Barby, but it's on legs so it means you don't have a bonfire which scorches the earth (it also catches the ash in the bottom). Any thoughts?

It's going to be a warm weekend. I was wondering if there might possibly be someplace campers without fridges can freeze those little chill blocks overnight - to use in cool bags.

Would the pub be able to provide that, or is that too much to ask? (I realise they're a pub and not a campsite as such).

our fridge won't be cold before we start towing it. We are freezing all(4) our blocks and bringing them in the cool box. Start the fridge (gas) as soon as we are on site, provided there is enough gas in the bottle we have.

You are welcome to use our cool box and fridge as we are not bringing a lot of food that needs cooling. Oh I will be bringing a bag of ice cubes because I can't survive without ice for the entire weekend. That's my favourite food.

Just had van serviced.... passed flying colours. Man said it was in remarkably good nick. Someone has been looking after it very well. (big grin). a whisper of damp at the bed end, probably there from before the damage was repaired. A dehumidifier or a couple of hot days with windows open will sort that. He could not get the heater to light, but I am hoping RB can help with that. We likely won;t need this weekend anyway, but would be good to know how if there is a trick.

So very tempted to just pack up and leave right now. We may just do that.

"we are not bringing a lot of food that needs cooling."

I'm just thinking about umm, rib-eye steaks and lamb loin chops and duck breast and err stuff.. I may have said in a PM, I turn very bloody when camping these days! Great hunks of bloody and burned meat on bbq... yummy! TSO may need to avert his eyes if we drag back a load of dead animal carcasses from the local farm shop ;-)

Our freezer at home is titchy witchy, and unfortunately half of it's just been filled up with a bloody great whole frozen trout... (thinks: 'hmm maybe I should bring that to bbq') but I have managed to pack in a few bottles of water, which will help to keep contents of cool bag cool.

In my day we used to camp while carrying tent and everything else too on our backs. Not done much of that since I've been an asthmatic fatso though! I don't have a van and can't see us going that route, but hope to get one of those nice spacious Bell Tents used by the Scouts by next Summer. Uber heavy & bulky to pack because they're canvas, but they're great things to camp in (apart from all the tragic trendy middle-class 'glamping' poo going on at the mo') 'cos they're cool when it's hot, warm when it's cold, have loadsa space inside and you can stand up. You can even put a wee wood burner inside depending on how adventurous you are..

Bought 2 more of the little toss away bbq grills. But we need bricks to rest them on.

There is an isolator valve for the gas fire in the bottom of the wardrobe.

There should be a HUGE spark from that external piezo igniter I fitted. Depress gas valve for a minute. Let go. Go away and come back in five minutes. Then put gas valve in "light" position, and repeatedly click the igniter. Should be up in seconds. IE treat it like the fridge.

If all else fails, make sure the safe-tea-elf is not looking, loosen front, unscrew the sight glass, and put LONG match or taper down the hole and depress gas valve. Mind eyebrows. When well alight, replace sight glass and re-fasten front - but it was doing that that made me change the igniter for a modern one, and after that it was nearly first time every time.

Freeze as many freezer blocks as you can tonight and put them in your fridge tomorrow. It will take a long tow to get it down to temp otherwise - it draws 8 amps or more and the wiring is old and it's a long way from the alternator...

Off shopping now.

Thanks to John Barden for helping us get the van parked. Thanks to Richard Bridge for helping us get inside fiddly bits sorted even before he got his own van sorted.

Happy birthday to Dilligaffxx. Hugs to all my folk friends old and new.    Must figure out how to make more time or clone myself, so I can do more musicing and more nattering. See many of you next Sunday.

Well, as met-check predicted it bucketed Sun 1 am to 4 am, and started again at 3 pm. Fortunately I had so carefully managed successfully to extract the van at about 1 pm (having the wrong towcar with me - automatic and turbo and no limited slip diff a bad combination).

Rain has followed me home and is impeding unpacking, but I am levelled and 'fridge on. Worried about 'fridge, it was not being efficient at Markbeech so I may need to take it out turn it upside down and shake it (honestly, it's a known trick) which is a lot cheaper than a new 4213S - they now retail for over £600! The non-return valve that I think was the cause of my lack of hot water has been ordered (in fact two ordered) on ebay so should be in by Knockers.

Piggy is (or has ever since I knew it been) a lovely event. The music was very mid-atlantic this year (but there again they had the Young Coppers last year or was it the year before) and I could have done with more English folk but there was a nice turnout of English tunes in the Sat night session in the pub and some good massed harmonies in the marquee later (with wine and cheese party). Cheddar-lovers, the cheddar was Ivy's Reserve.

By Sunday morning sheets of bogroll were changing hands for huge sums, and indeed I donated two rolls, so a festival stock of bogroll and a bog duty officer would be an enhancement.

I reckon the pub could make itself a nice littl earner with barbecued breakfasts if it could get staff to do them from say 8 am until opening time when the expensive food comes on, and people were on Sunday queuing for an hour to order food and then the food orders closed bang on time leaving many disappointed.

Mumblin Len mentioned that the pub in Ash did great business on BBQ at their mini folk/ale fest in August last year.

BBQ breakers sounds great. Simple sausage on a roll (pig in the blanket - so apt) not expensive to purchase, not difficult to prepare in bulk and will sell from 8 am throughout the day. It may be that at a pub, there needs to be someone specifically trained to man big BBQ, especially with all the kiddies running about.

But to the landlady at the Kentish Horse, hats off to her and her chef and wait staff. Bet they are utterly knackered.

John Joseph is barking - but in a good way.

The pub would of course rather sell its expensive meals in stead of cheap bacon and egg rolls, but I reckon it could sell a monster English breakfast - fried bread, plum tomato, mushrooms, egg, bacon, sausage for a fiver, profitably, like Moor and Coast. Add a glass of Resolve for hangover cure and a glug of gavischon for indigestion and a person could be ready to start drinking again... But it would then stop the breakfasts at say 11 am to let it make profit on lunches suppers and dinners.

Being who I am I was less taken with Moveable Feast, but Border Crossing were good (guitar sound a bit twangy) and I was very impressed with the new Slow Gin. I didn't know Holly could sing as well, and she slays thousands with her squeeze-boxes. Capella and Alchemy were brilliant as always. That guitar of Mike Nicholson's sings a whole harmony arrangement all by itself!

'First and foremost,"
"Well done to Pigs Ear for arranging a great event

I,ll remember me 2nd Piggies for longer then "I think" some of you will give me credit fore but I was sober much of the 4 days?.
" I am not in Denial "I was"

Thanks fore the invite to the birthday feast. Excellent
My Barbecue was held up on the night in question because I was rooted in the Marque.
I Know
'I should have lighted it much earlier. but I was rooted in the Marque?

(I was told off by"Kev the Clogs
"I still and fore ever more will not be able to understand why one or any one else fore that matter cant offer a passing folk " a Sausage. "

"Earth is wrongs with That?
seriously.
Thanks to the folk who laid on the celebration and providing excellent food and drink.
"Well done".

The hollering out of "Cake" and above the distribution of i cake was excellent.
Indeed a child returned from some part the field the next Day (Sunday I think ?) and offered me and others with me at the time
( whom "I cant recall)
A piece of there cake which I thought was a nice return gesture?

The music was excellent and I spent a lot of time enjoying the musicians/ Bands and singers. and equally comedy.

Right Move On

Due to the event being larger this year I cannot give the same "voice credit" fore the toilets has I did last year? l

Last year the Loo,s survived the event remaining clean with ample bog rolls through out
the event
"Sadly this was not the case this year.

between mid afternoon / Saturday. evening "it had all gone 'Round the U bend and every where else

"They were horrible.
Indeed some poor souls back side had clearly imploded in one of the Loo.s   and the other three ? one could sit down on due to being full of bog roll.

I shut me eyes quite bewildered to why there was more bog roll in the toilet then anything else? + a Nappy?

"Contrary to popular belief tent folk"Do wipe there Arse,s I assume thats what the toilets are there fore?
.................and some times.................. trailer and Caravan folk need to use the site Loo,s too
when the other is in the shower
"or there toilet wont work
"And there is a Log in the hole " .

Ok
The Land lady and her thinly assembled staff worked tirelessly during busy times

"There was a Breakfast which was ample and very nice to boot.
but a couple of slices of bread and a mug of tea included
"would not have gone a miss in regards to £5.50 ?

In regards to being busy credit to them all.
The bar-staff were both polite and helpful.
Hats off
To the barmaid who managed to flood the floor and smother everyone with Ale
while filling my Tankard?
Remember what I said to you when you a washed the floor with Ale?
" Stay Calm and Carry On.

Summery
all-round a great time with great people.
Kindest regards to all
Pierre,

On a more taxing songs which clearly first time round at Piggies, and fore the 2nd time went belly up?

Regular bog cleaning and re-stocking. Maybe even more bogs.

How about a shower block (or one for each gender)? I'm not sure where such could be put, or how to supply water to them (or dispose of waste water) or even if the pub's electricity supply could cope with another user - maybe a generator for the control circuitry and light: the heating of the water is usually by propane.

Water flow to the field was very slow this year and children at least were getting grumpy at the wait to fill water containers. Maybe a plan for the future is needed

So long as we can get onto field early Fri I am not bothered about having the PA on any earlier, folkies can folk without it - even Thurs if permitted.

I'd like to see at least a seeding of singers of English folk booked each festival.

If there is to be a policy of "vans here, tents there" then it should be enforced - at least two tents were placed so as to make exit much harder than it needed to be (until they came down again). But on the other hand where groups have planned to be together they may legitimately want to have vans and tents together. This is not an easy thing to sort, and it has been a bone of contention at Ely before now.

Maybe a man with a chainsaw could cut logs (and provide them on hire to users, to defray cost) to level vans when the amount of levelling exceeds the usual limit of the yellow plastic blocks sold by caravan shops.   They'd probably need re-doing every year or so (but could go on the pub fire at end of life so would not be wasted).

When mailing out tickets, include a local map showing how to access Markbeech from the other approach roads - at least a couple of users must have found the right turn into the pub carpark nigh on impossible. Alternatively sketchmap showing how to drive round in a circle to approach pub carpark from the north-east.

I think the "open mic" needs a bit of a rejig. Diligent self-promoters and bands are tending to take over. Maybe the hosts could actually ask some people in advance to do some open mic slots (John Barden would be a prime candidate for such an invitation), allocate some on a "first pre-booking" basis, some on a "first come in person" basis, and save some for allocation on the day. Just a thought.

I agree with Fisheye
these Tom Toms are bloody useful when they work which is all very well
but when they keep asking you to U Turn "Twice it happened on route when pulling a Caravan it can be a damn Rigmarole and in some cases bloody dangerous.

I have never been engaged in such a palaver before whereby a navigation aid re driving can place one in a predicament in regards too
" finding some self on a country lane pulling a caravan where if a Tractor and trailer was to meet us head on chaos would Reign?

If John Bardens Tom tom allows him to navigate around speed bumps has shown to me last year.
Why the hell cant these things have a Caravan in tow button so cars pulling caravans do not end up on country lanes and have to face the gamble of the scenario above.
all this technology is bloody dangerous?

I was 1st on site on the Thursday and I found the Padlock open on the chain around the gate.
so I went in and pitched tent.

If the padlock had been locked I would have enquired in the pub to weather I could go forth and pitched

Once pitched I went to the pub for a drink and got told off for pitching?
apparently I was supposed to await the arrival of some Tom Dick or Harry
but nothing was mentioned on this site prior to Thursday in regards to Thursday arrivals so I used me own judgement.

So yes please next year

The friday idea is not a bad one, as quite a few turn up for the thursday night session, and quite a few more turn up before mid-day friday, so that could work too. It doesn't give you much time to set up though, so maybe a 2pm start would be better?

Chris Wood is one that comes to mind for me - very English for Richard Bridge, and as a group Mawkin:Causley. Finally my other wish would be Ian Bruce, one of the best voices around bar none.

Pete, The number of arrivals on Thursday caught the pub a little by surprise...they were hoping for a gentle lead-in to the manic weekend!!

Hence my question - if we're going to start Thursday evening, we need to officially start Thursday evening so everyone's prepared for it. There's a significant difference for us as organisers to the festival starting 7.30 pm on Friday with a Travelling folk session in the bar Thursday evening, and starting the festival Thursday evening with Travelling Folk. May all look the same to you guys but believe me, it isn't!! Running the folk ale is a continuous learning process for all the organisers, that's why the feedback is useful.

PS feedback as in comments that is, feedback in the PA is not useful at all....

No doubt Gina was hoping for a quieter Thursday. We were surprised at the number of folk who had arrived before we did at around 5.00 p.m. She does work very hard, and it shows.. not the least in her need not to open until at least lunchtime on Monday. If we started officially with the Travelling Folk Session on Thursday, could there also be a session in the marquee please. There was just the right number at the session this year, and to have an official start would maybe get a considerably greater attendance. I may be wrong, lots of people still have to work on Fridays. More portaloos - yes please, or at least, have them serviced daily. No real need for showers is there? We can improvise, and have already discussed how to do it using sunlight. Anyway. Stop all being Grumpy Gusses. We had a wonderful time, if somewhat knackering.

Leopards,

I doubt there would be a lot more there on Thursday by making that session an official part of the programme, it just means we're better geared up for those who are.

If we do get lots and lots of people we might consider hiring the village hall across the road for a ceilidh, thus easing the pressure on the session.

Feel free to nitpick (as long as you don't mind if we choose to ignore you!). No point planning for an extra day if no-one really wants it. We always have a post mortem as part of the planning for next year. So I want to know what y'all think.

Having said that it WAS a brilliant weekend and I will pass on all the votes of thanks to Gina to make sure she knows how much we all appreciate her. TKH could very easily become someone's country retreat and be lost to us all if she didn't run it as a successful business. Think on this next time you pull a face at the price of a chip butty....

Wonder if any of the traction engine types might be able to stop by the Kentish Horse some time over the weekend? It always used to cause great excitement at Marsh Green school when they stopped overnight on the village green!

Yes, my hands got pretty grimy, no place to get the squeezbox out !
Steam, coal, hot oily metal, vintage fairground, acoustic/folk musick, the rolling Sussex countryside, and ale. It all seems like a good combination to me :o)

So why not an addition to the steam fair program, of some Folk music (a singaround or session perhaps), and maybe a Morris side or two.

Seems to me that'd fit in right well with the whole ambience of the steam fair.

I'm sure prior contact with local folk club and session organisers would produce plenty of performers, especially if there's a beer tent on site.

I'm not, perhaps, the best person to organise this ..
Any suggestions ?
