Looking forward to the weekend and the singing in the "Red Lion" with Derek and Kitty.
The old grey cells would like a little prompt for the gathering and start times for the lunchtime and evening sessions.
See some of you there.

Should be another great weekend and the weather seems set fair too!
Looking forward to catching up with Colum Sands at the Mowlem Theatre on Saturday afternoon.

Sounds like a good day, Big Al.
Apart from the big sings in the Red Lion, I am hoping to catch the Railway Gala, during the weekend, and one or two of the concerts.

It's was great to catch 'Bish' depping at a monent's notice at last weekend's Fylde Festival even if I did variously introduce him as Martin Bispham, Mark Billington etc. Oh well, there go my chances of MCing at Dorset festivals - I've already got my coat on and left the building!

That's no problem Clive. Always enjoy the gigs when you are MC'ing.
Many years ago I was part of a duo "Weasels Feel"(it's along story but the band Decameron sang a song 'Stoat's Grope'!) and were introduced at a squaddies gig as "Badger's Bunk-up".
It was great meet up with you too last weekend.

I had a look at Swanage ff and remember old holidays in the south of England as a kid

Trains from Wakefield to somewhere like Poole and then out some 20 odd miles to Swanage accommodation etc

O well maybe hire a Camper if I can see to drive that far ~ just thoughts!

If you are old enough you can use your bus pass - the No 50 goes from Bournemouth to Swanage.

And thank you to you and Derek for running the sessions and entertaining us so well.
The Festival was in near perfect weather and the main concert with Ric Sanders, Vo Fletcher, Catherine Howe, and then Colum Sands, finishing with the Demon Barbers, was terrific entertainment.
The atmosphere during the street parade of over 60 sides, and by the sea, was also excellent.

Brilliant weekend all round, weather was perfect, Red Lion was drunk dry, the White Swan rocked on Saturday evening, We had three fantastic gigs, particularly enjoyed 'East Anglia Sunday' with our friends 'The Larks' and 'Two Coats Colder' played to a marquee on Sunday with standing room only and sold a bucketload of CD's. Well done to John Butcher and all of the team.

The only bad part was having to pack up and make the long trek home on monday morning. Great to meet a lot of old friends and make some new ones. Sorry for those I almost ran over with the mobility scooter.
Hope to make it again next year

I've been checking dates for next year, and it appears that Swanage and Bromyard won't clash YAAAAAY!!!!

So looks like it's festivals 3 weeks in a row next year - the Wail, Swanage and Bromyard. The caravan will be earning its keep!
