Subject: Knockholt Autumn Leaves 2012

Date: 09 Jul 12 - 12:51 PM

Knockholt Autumn Leaves this year is 5th to 9th September.

The 7th is my 64th birthday and NOBODY had better play that damned Beatles song.

It appears there will probably be changes to the charging structure to (probably) flat rate £8 per head per night with no unit charge and no size of unit charge.

back in 1975 when I was rehearsing a band with my old (now famous) mate Mick Jones, one of the songs that he insisted we did was "Birthday" by The B-/-:-;-(s in those days he played bass he liked the riff!

£8 per head seem a much fairer pricing policy - especially for us loners Ho ho ...

Looking forward to it.

Its getting close to that time of year again and I am surprised there is no Knockholt thread up yet,
So I have taken it upon my self to put one up.

What is the situation with the Marquee Re the poles being bent after it took off and crashed down back in June , do we have a Marquee or not because if we do not I have a very large tent that can be used that could accomodate folk its a 6 birth. if we rip out the sleeping compartments we could get at least 10 people in it.

I have messaged Joe Offer and asked him to remove my Knockholt thread. What I cant understand is I serched for a excisting Knockers thread solely because it is usually on Mudcat by this time of the year and RB starts it and I could not find any thing in the search Bar.

There again I have not been firing on all six these last 6 weeks so its probobly down to human error (mine) anyway I have taken several readings and I feel my mind is now quite sound????

What is the news of the Marquee. after it took off back in June and came back down to Earth in pieces ? do we have a Marquee?

"Autumn Leaves" as a title has been used before! When I was one of the organisers I chose a different name each time, trying to keep it related to song names or booze i.e. Autumn Almanac, Forever Autumn, Autumn Stone(ings)Moon In June, Summer Breeze etc - come on let's try and be just a little more creative!

Gorgeous weather, smashing company (for the most part), great music, gallons of Pimms, excellent feast on the Saturday. Hats off to Sue and Mick, and Pat and Debs for the organising.

We got nowhere near to burning all the wood so we have a head start on the wood for next June (date not fixed yet).

Costs covered with some to spare so the farmer will get a benefit bung to keep him sweet, and depending on how many turn up in June cost per head may be capable of being lowered.

Dave and little Dan thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are asking about other folk things.

We also had a brilliant Knockholt, it was great spending time with everyone and the weather couldn't have been better. Lovely to see the young ones enjoying themselves too, let's hope they come again.

Nick contacted us and asked if anyone has mistakenly taken home his green folding chair the make is GELERT. When Mick went back to the field yesterday to clear up it wasn't there so maybe everyone could just have a check.

We have asked the Farmer for Wednesday 19th June - Sunday 23rd for next years camp and he's agreed those dates so only nine months to go - fingers crossed for more sunshine.

We are trying to figure out a way at least approximately to pre-estimate numbers. As it stands if we get the same sort of numbers again the price could go down and if we get many more we might need another loo but the price could still probably go down. But if the forecast is bad and no-one comes it could be a disaster to fix the price too low.


We are sort of idly kicking around the idea of getting people to make advance non-binding indications of likelihood of attendance and duration - perhaps somehow via the existing annex pages on the Folkmob website.


Open to constructive suggestions.

I'd imagine it would be a tricky exercise and mostly dependent on what some term "The Wevva". I don't have too much experience of Knockers but I do know the weather makes a diference, right up to the last minute. Would be good also if the communal meal wasn't quite as variable. I certainly intent to be there for em all if work schedules allow, regardless of the elements.

Where was Nick sitting? I have only the chairs that were mine (three of which broke) but if we know where he was it will narrow down who is likely to have seen his stuff. I bet the phone and knife are in the cupholder of the chair.

Exactly who was Nick anyway (I had a good Knockholt too)? Best way to identify him to me is by what guitar he played - or is he the friend of Richard from Brighton - small and bearded?

I think he was near Gaynor and Martin, he was wearing a hat, he sung Jim's pirate song, he's about 65ish and has an American accent - he's the guy who thought he had your lamp from June and you're probably right about the knife and phone being in the cup holder - it makes sense.

I was at folkmob last night and Nick did not mention a thing about chairs or mobiles,I will see him tonight and make enquires.after all there is a possibility they have turned up?

It also appears that Liam was on the field long after every one had gone. seems his behavior was bad enough to piss off people who would normally show concern to a person who they know has no menas of transport in regards to getting home. It appears Martin took him home in the end. The only reason Martin was there was he had taken a stroll to Down and had a sleep on the way back hence martyinmet Liam at 6oclock.

I understand Liam was sitting in a chasir when Martin got back to the field at 6. Liam did not have a chair when he arrived he arrived with a tent and a tin of baked beans and that was it , after spending all the previous monday night prior to knockers telling him what he would need? Martin stated to me Liam was sitting in a chair when he took him home. That does not mean it is the chair in question but it does seem rather odd???????

That could be the mystery solved then - Martin said that Liam seemed to have quite a lot of gear when he took him home - which sound rather more than just one tent and an empty can of beans. As you say it might not be the chair in question but maybe you could mention it to Nick when you see him tonight Pete.
