Hi Mudcatters!

Booking now open for the Pig's Ear Kentish Horse Folk Ale 2011 on www.folkale.co.uk

Ashdown Forest Morris Men will be dancing at TKH on Wednesday evening 1st June; Festival starts with a session in the bar 8.30 Thursday 1st June.

From 2.30 pm on Friday 2nd June we've got an Open Mic session hosted by the Leopards to take us into a pretty much non-stop weekend of musical wonderfullness.

Guests this year include Dave Cousins and Ian Cutler and Les Barker. Ron Trueman-Border and the Strangers will be the cream topping on the fantastic Friends of the Folk Ale concert which runs from 11.00 am to 11.00 pm on Saturday with contributions from lots of fantastic local bands - see the website for details.

Get your tickets booked - there are unlikely to be any available "on the door" this year. It's going to be another cracker folks!!! (Just get that weather ordered, will you?)

Met-check keeps changing its mind. Current reportage: -

Thursday - 24 degrees, wet after 6 pm
Friday - 24 degrees, wet until 6 am and after 6 pm, otherwise drizzle
Sat - 14 degrees (that has to be a mistake surely?) but at least dry
Sun - 15 degrees and rain begins at noon.

I shall feel more confident when the predictions get in range on the met office site.

Sorry for the delayed response re the Open Mic question - it needs to finish by around 5.30 to make sure there's time to set up for the evening concert.

All -

This year we're got wristbands to swap for your ticket on arrival. Can anyone prepared to do a stint on the ticket desk or CD sales tell the person they get their wristband from! We need more volunteers.

Also - we'll give you a placci bag for your camping permit, please display it proudly on your tent or caravan.

Mark Beech village hall is a lovely little additional venue - do stroll over to the Saturday evening song session and have a look.

That's the trouble with computer generated weather. You had proper weather in my young day!

What you need is a nice length of seaweed. If you hang it outside the back door it will tell you what the weather is....when its wet, you know it's raining and when it's dry you know it isn't!

Pig's Ear...the festival that is excellent whatever the weather!

Do we have no proper 'pagan morris' sides or 'weather witches' for Gaia's sake?
No? Oh well, at the first sign of clouds simply grab the nearest folkie with a Unicorn tee shirt and stick them onto a bonfire.
Old folk tradition (well not quite).
It might not banish the rain clouds as such, but a bloody great bonfire is definitely warming when roughing it at a folk festival.

Anyway Mr. Bridge, my web page says different to yours (sunny all week) so I think I'll simply keep looking at that and expecting the best..

Metcheck now saying dry and sunny at all relevant times - but not hot - and it's predicting fantastic winds but I've seen that programming error on it before. Met office still has only 5 days range but is saying dry and sunny too, with winds getting up but not as far as Metcheck predicts.

Met office say fine, dry, a bit windy.

Met check say fine and dry apart from a bit of rain (not a lot) from midnight Sat to noon Sun.

I'm hoping to be on my way by 11 or 12 at the latest.

The rain arrived on little cat feet at about 1030 today but got slowly a little heavier.

But what a lovely weekend.

Just this moment got back from a superb weekend at Pig's Ear Folk Ale. Nobody had problems getting off the site I'm glad to say, and the whole thing was a joy for me. Thanks to all the people who participated and a special thank you to the Rule family and Gina at 'The Kentish Horse' for putting on the festival - you all worked so hard and once again it paid off.

Echo what everyone else said about the weekend. Damn RTB and his rain song ! By Sunday evening, had had enough, as not a dry bit of clothing to wear other than undies.... shiver...... much to Mr Leopard's disgruntlement, packed up and away, and home before dark on Sunday.
