Subject: Proposed Foots Cray Folk Day
From: Girl Friday
Date: 13 Jul 10 - 07:56 AM

The Seven Stars Sessions propose to hold a Folk Day .
Assuming that September 4/5 is Faversham
Knowing that September 11/12 is The Barge/ Wat Tyler Country Park
Assuming that Del is September 18th/19th.

Is anything planned in Kent for 25th/26th?

Sue

Crayford usually coincides with Deal Festival. I shall p m Growler to see if he's any plans for The G.I Bank Holiday weekend is out on two counts. Landlord is away, and there's Ash.

August Bank Holiday sounds good we may even have some left-over weather.
This ehas such a fantastic outdoor area with plenty of seats and a beatiful river running through it - I wouldn't worry about it clashing with events further afield as I'm not sure if they would have any impact on it! I can certainly drum up lots of support from Blackheath, Greenwich & Folkmob!

We are already committed to playing at Ash that weekend. Also, Mick, the landlord of The Seven Stars is on ho0liday from 14th to 28th April.
We're on holiday at Sidmouth prior to that. Any sooner is too short notice, isn't it?

GF, I can't make bank holiday weekend but IF it's held on a weekend I can get there, I have 2 large half oil-drum barbecues with stands and a car big enough to get them in, once I can drive again. Happy to supply them, and operate them. We've fed 60+ on them without any problems.

Why so late in the year? It's only 15th July now - October isn't really a BBQ friendly month! What's wrong with late July / early August?

Hi Woodsie. Not enough time to organise it. We want to do it properly.
We are off to Sidmouth end of July to early August. Then it's Broadstairs. As has been mentioned several times, the landlord is on holiday, and we don't want to clash with other events, especially the ones that we are involved with. October can be smashing!

Hey Woodsie, I really enjoyed your contribution last week, hope you're coming back :-)

However only three weeks ago we didn't know whether we had a group or not and now we are trying to run a festival!! - four weeks ago we were meeting in my front room with space to spare!!!

I am as keen as anyone to have an event here and this Saturday would be fine with me but I think we need to consolidate our presence and show Mick the landlord that we want to be there for the long haul. A bit of patience and get it right is probably more important. In the meantime every Monday evening is festival time

I think also it would be useful to assess where we stand in the North-West Kent folk scene. Are we London facing or are we Kent facing. Our roots have been in Kent but we may well be making the transition to being a South-East London venue in which case clashing with events like Faversham and Broadstairs could be far less relevant than clashing with Blackheath and Folkmob (Hi Essex Girl, might we see you next Monday?)

I would like to see us , like Janus, with two heads. It is great to have the South East Londoners on board, but I have no objection, and should not want to discourage any folkie who wants to come along.I would agree about Faversham and Broadstairs, as T D L have never broken through there, but I believe strongly, that our many friends from The Medway, and Maidstone areas might come along occasionally, especially as we have got an ad in AKF.

Perhaps we could get a touring Morris side to call in some time - with the shoppers car park adjoining we could get a good turnout from the public

Garden?

I would have thought the garden would be fine - otherwise there is the public area immediately across the road (see Google Street View), but I don't know how taking the drinks across the road would go down...

Checked out the spaces for Morris last night

The public area across the road is ample but has the drawback of being separated from the pub

The garden is in three parts with changes of level, neither the bit by the river nor the bit outside the pub doors give a big enough area, but there is a slightly raised portion between the two which might be just about suitable if cleared of the four or five picnic tables

Perhaps an experienced morris dancer could have a look

Woodsie said he got 75 turn up at a do the other day. I reckon if we give Mick a conservative estimate, it'll have to be first come, first served. Let's firm up the date with him and then I'll start a new thread where folk can register their interest.
