Decided to start a new thread. Date is 18th May 2012 at the same venue as last year. Hopefully a few more will come this year and stay into Sunday. We have to move out of the function room for a couple of hours for Sunday lunches but will have a party tent available during that time and can go back into the big room for the rest of the day. Here is a link to Last years thread

Its a weekend of Music and Booze and ……

Not exactly too descriptive there, Leadfingers.


This was the description of last year's do, according to Mrs Duck prior to the event:

The weekend is the 13th May at The White Horse Inn Sharlston Nr Wakefield.
There is camping available on an adjacent field at £4 for caravans and £2 for tents per night.
It is not an exclusively Mudcat weekend so any folkie friends are very welcome.
We have use of the function room and possibly a party tent all weekend and I have promised we will all drink lots of beer. The pub does excellent food and I would recommend booking a Sunday lunch. I am proposing a communal style meal on the Saturday evening with something like chilli and veggie curry with rice.
There will be song and music sessions and sometimes a mix and chocolate.



I'd say that that was pretty much the way that things turned out – and with the "VERY good company" that Leadfingers mentions.

It was brilliant last year and I am pretty sure we will be there again unless disaster or stardom strikes...

The pub is great with good food and well kept beer. The field for camping is next to pub with use of pub facilities. The Ducks and Ducklings did a super job all round. The magic duck-wand was wielded as a means of turn taking in the sessions and the company was indeed excellent. I want to remember my video camera this year, in the hope of immortalising Geoff's rendition of Duelling Banjos!

I am trying to keep this near the top as at present we seem to be very low on numbers and if I don't get a few more names on the list I will have to make a decision as to whether it will happen. I will have to let the landlady know fairly soon in case she gets the chance of a paid booking and turns it down.

Brian is their campervan. We own a double size gazebo that we have used before as a party tent and plan to put it up next to the function room. The main pub isn't really suitable for a session but we have use of the function room all weekend apart from a couple of hours Sunday lunchtime when they serve meals in there. If you have a tent Mr Happy it could prove very useful as another session area especially if, as I hope, we get more numbers. The function room is a good size and last year we ended up with a mixed session and in the end didn't put the tent up (very high winds didn't help).

it landed roof down on the only tiny bit of barbedwire in the field & ripped a big hole in it.

Luckily had me little spare dome tent as well.

That was the pub with the al fresco flush lav!! Tee-hee

I passed around lots of your flyers at our Anglesey gathering last w/end & plenty interest generated, so hopefully there'll be more coming yours from all over.

As it stands, the Chester contingent will be definitely meself & Mrs Happy[Mie] & probably the Gloom Band [2 - 4 others].

I'm photocopying b&w versions of the flyer for further publicity around our local seshes & do's so you should be assured of decent numbers of diverse instrumentalists & singers.

Will there be a possibility for campers to stay over until the Monday?

Plenty of space for camping. At least one caravan club hold occasional meets there.
The following link should find it on Google Maps -
White Horse, Sharlston.

The field to the right of the pub is where vans and tents go - entry via the pub car park.

Quack!

Had a good time at the pub this weekend and they are looking forward to us again this year. Please spread the word to any folk friendly friends mudcatters or non mudcatters all welcome. If everyone who has expressed an interest turns up we should be about 30 - 40 but there is plenty of room for more.
There will be cooked breakfasts available both mornings. Last year we all had a communal chilli on the Saturday. If you think that would be a good idea again? The pub does great food so please support them by eating and drinking loads :)

Hi Jane- I thought the communal chilli on the Sat night was great last year, though I remember at least a few peeps had not realised this was on, so they had eaten in the main pub earlier. So if you need an idea of numbers I count as four ( not cos I eat enough chilli for four, but because I think my OH and our friends who are coming agin this year will probably think the same!)

Geoff; definition of perfect pitch for a banjo is when you lob it into a skip without hitting the sides.

A big thank you to Geoff & Jane for organising a terriffic weekend, to Maddie for keeping the beer flowing and for being so helpful and kind to us when we arrived on Friday weary strangers in a strange land , well it is to us. We really enjoyed the whole thing, meeting old friends, and new. Great singing, playing, laughing, drinking and socialising. Also thanks to Foggers and Yorkshire Yankee among others for their kind words and finally a HUGE thank you to Mr Happy for making me laugh so much that it hurt with his unique rendition of the Ken Dodd song, "Happiness".
PS, had a great time in York too.
