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

Since this is a new thread, how about putting all the details near the top, for those who may be interested but didn't go last year?

It's good setting for a gathering- and good people going to be there!

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'll be there. Hope it's as good as last year but I would like to see it extend a bit further into Sunday afternoon this time.

I will probably stay over until Monday morning if anyone else is around.

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.

It was such a good event last year it would be a shame if it did not get off the ground this year.
Please please commit yourselves, the standard was great last year , well worth the journey.

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).

Ah, high winds, yes I remember me big frame tent sailing off like a giant kite at the previous Yorkshire gathering I came to years back.

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

Mrs D,

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?
