It's that time again folks, where I gently remind you that you need to be ordering your tickets to the Folk Event of the Year, with the best singing, the most beautiful women, the handsomest men, the most succulent pig and multiple and priceless prizes.

Okay, I might have lied about the prizes but come anyway, it's great and ( not for the faint-hearted) will feature the debut appearance of the Shanty Annas - (except for the first debut in London some weeks ago for Suffet.......but this is the first proper debut, honest).

But thinking more logically today, we can't really squeeze an overnight in to the schedule. But we'll have a think about dropping down Saturday lunchtime before going to Lewes, Leadfingers sugggested it a few days ago. It's quite a detour, we'll have to see how we go!

YES! At long last I'm a UK resident, and Rob (quantock) and I will be there with bells on! We got lucky and found the last room in a B & B not too far away, and we'll be coming down from Aberdeen on Friday evening for the weekend, then hanging around the south for Bromyard the next weekend.

So we'll finally get to meet all the lovely people we have only met online so far, as well as the ones we have met before. It sounds like a wonderful weekend, and we're especially looking forward to the feast.

One question - how cold does it get? Do we need to bring a lot of warm clothes?

Well, probably by comparison with Australia. I think Scotland is much colder. That 15 degrees forecast minimum is more like our maximum now. Last night it was 7 degrees here. A 15 degree minimum sounds positively balmy by comparison!

However, not having been to the Wail before, I guess what I really need to know is, are we outdoors most of the time? Everything is in marquees or outdoors, as far as I can see, so just wondering how warm it is in the marquees.

Bring lots of clothes, you can always take them off if you're too hot, but putting on layers you don't have is difficult!

I seem to have asked 3 people to get me a ticket so there should be at least one waiting for me.... we'll be getting there early evening hopefully, save us a big spot for the tent, in the middle!

Jenny - what Liz said, and it depends what you're thinking of wearing for the mediaeval banquet. But (especially if you're not camping) you shouldn't get very cold this weekend. Not like Bromyard.... (if it's sunny during the day it's cold at night and if it isn't sunny during the day it's wet....)

This Wail is sounding really great, what with Ducks and Williams virgins coming along this year!

Hey JJ, there are lots of fellas who rave about the Wail too, maybe not just here, just now!

Yes, we're planning on doing a marathon drive to bring Max to the Wail on Saturday, but we're hoping not to disturb the proceedings too much. It will only be for a couple of hours, but it will surely be quality time. I'll bring a Mudcat Register for us to sign, Max is keeping them as souvenirs of his trip. Safe journeys all!

A pretty inaccurate observation, Guest JJ. If you read down the thread, there are plenty of males enthusiastic about it too.

If so happens that two males who can't do without their instruments commented unfavourably early on- why they chose to open the thread at all I know not, if this is not their thing.

Chacun a son gout! :)

Rob and I had a lovely time yesterday meeting Max and some of the other Catters we'd never met before. I told Max it's all his fault that we are together, since we met online on the Mudcat group on Facebook nearly 3 years ago now. We got some good photos yesterday which we'll put on Facebook soon, but meanwhile we are back to the Wail today for more singing. A much more full report tomorrow when it is all over. We'll definitely be there next year!!!

And a happy anniversary to Kitty and Derek!

Thanks Morti - we had a great anniversary weekend, and it sounds as though you and Idris did too!

Soupdragon should be on MGAS's register, I think?

Congratulations to the EJOG Elforforiti table for their song at the banquet, for which they were awarded the pig's head, and to Task Force for their ingenuity in preventing the theft of the pig's head this year...

Thanks especially to Alan and Nikki, but there are so many other people to thank too!

Looking forward to next year.

Lovely weekend, as always, my favourite of the year and already looking forward to next year, and for all those who moan about unaccompanied singing, the organiser Alan White wishes it to be known that though there is predominantly unaccompanied singing most of the time, he has never said that musical instruments to accompany the singing were unwelcome, and indeed there were a few in atendance, as usual. It was also a great thrill to meet my first ever santee, Jenny O, her lovely man, Rob and Max too. Now, I've got a loads of photos to sort! will post them when I get myself sorted!

We had a wonderful weekend just a bit shattered on Sunday but that was well worth it Great to put faces to names and to meet up with old singing mates and there were some cracking singers and clinking songs.
Wonderful for the singer and the song to be shewn respect, so important

I've not posted here before, but I feel a need to.

This was my first 'Wail' and whilst there was some undoubtedly fine singing, I found the cliquey behaviour (of some) quite distasteful.

I'll leave it at that.

I guess most festivals have cliques of people who've been before, or who came as a group, but we tried to make sure that no-one was left out of the singing at the singarounds, or without a group of people to sit and sing with at the banquet, especially people who hadn't been to a Wail before. I'm sorry if we failed to clock you as a Wail virgin, and make sure you were looked after.

I'm so sorry to hear that Peter, especially as we do try very hard to make newcomers welcome and I know there are others who would report we succeeded.

Of course there is the inevitable catching up with old friends and news from the year, a lot of us DO know one another well and I make no apology for that but, as I say, we all try hard to make people welcome and I am really sorry we somehow missed you.
