First of all this isn't a moan, just an observation.

We've just been stewarding at Warwick and were on the main marquee for the final concert which was incidentally brilliant.

As it was the final concert we had to clear away the litter at the end. What amazed me was the number of leaflets left on the seats. We were carrying them away in armfuls and putting them in the recycling. One seat I came to had twenty leaflet son it.

Printing glossy leaflets is not cheap and I'm wondering if the expense is justified by the result of increased attendance at gigs as a result. We sometimes do leaflets around our local clubs but normally go round at the end of a night and collect those not taken. If we leave them at a festival venue we'll normally collect any not taken at the end.

Is there any evidence that so many leaflets produce any results - how many of them actually get read?

If I put leaflets out like that, I gather up any which aren't taken afterwards. It saves the stewards a job, it's kind to the environment, and it saves the cost and effort of printing new ones.

Festivals have recycling policies ow but they need to engage their punters more

Leafleting seats seems to be far more popular these days. As a punter I don't like it, I a quite happy to look at a leaflet rack and decide if there is anything to interest me. As a steward its a bloody nuisance as most are still there at the end of the evening, some resuable, some recyclable and some soaked in beer.

One plea from a steward and occasional barman - please don't screw the wretched things up and stick them in your empty beer glass!

I have to plead guilty of leading people on into thinking that leaflets are more important than they actually are. I will always glance at leaflets left lying round at festivals and might take one even if there is only the vaguest chance of my following it up. I almost always take one if they are handed directly to me at a session. I put them into the zip pocket of whatever instrument case I have at the time and then promptly forget them. A year or so later, when I am searching through some music or lyric sheets, I find a collection out of date leaflets that finally make it to the recycling box.

I used to accept leaflets handed out in the street, whatever the subject, and then bin them after a quick glance once I was politely out of sight of the distributor. I now decline them but sometimes wonder what offers I have missed, even though I know that I would have been unlikely to take them up.
