Subject: (UK) New Bridgnorth Folk Festival?

While searching for something else, I found references to a new Bridgnorth Folk Festival- either 28th September 2013, or 6-8 June 2014.

As this is the first I've heard of it, I'd like to know more- who's organising it, etc?

The website mostly says 'info coming soon' but says it will be a 'small traditional festival' for which they are currently booking performers, morris dancers etc, and that it will be held at Hilton outside Bridgnorth.

I loved the original Bridgnorth festival and am hoping this could have something of the feel of the old one.

Anyone out there know any more, please?

Sounds interesting! I went to the Bridgnorth festival some years ago; I think it was 2002. It was one of the best festivals I've been to.

This sounds good, I'm up for it. A small and decent traditional festival sounds just the job.

Shall I bring chocolate Hilary?

Just had this from fb:

Just to update all the folks who don't already know. The Folk Festival is not happening this year unfortunately. The festival site has pulled out and we are left without a venue. With a bit of luck we will try to arrange something for 2015 so watch this space. Sorry to all those who were looking forward to the return of a Folk Festival in Bridgnorth but things don't always go according to plan.

A bit more facebook snobbery. Facebook is as good or as bad as you want it to be, I find it very useful as do most performers.

Was very sorry to hear this and thanks to Mr Happy for the heads-up here as I don't do Facebook myself. Here's hoping that the Organisers will be able to sort something out for 2015.

Shame that they haven't bothered to add a smidgin of that info to their website yet, which is where most people will go to find info.
Their website still says they are recruiting, and tickets will be on sale in march.

Guest Silas,

How do you understand snobbery about fb?

Noreen,

Yes, I agree, they didn't bother to tell anyone about it until I asked.

I've asked why on their fb page, here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bridgnorth-Folk-Festival/122070177964754

'No answer' was the stern reply!

Well mr happy, its just a case of technophobia I suppose. People refuse to join facebook because it is a popular medium. There is a lot of dross on it, 90% probably, but its very simple to filter out the shite and use it as a brilliant communicationtool. But some people - well, its like a badge isn't ut - "I'm not on facebook" - bit silly really.

I've been on fb a few years.

I didn't imagine I was being snobbish in any of my allusions to it - its not perfect, but then what is?

I think we are misunderstanding each other. I find facebook incredibly usefull. Most people who use it for communication, particularly giving information to large numbers do too.

Some people won't use it and then complain that no one tells them anything that is going on.

some people have a farcebook account and use it only for access to certain specific things (since redundant). It ain't snobbery it is called "getting a life".

I am amazed by the number of people who reveal their birthdate on the thing, give their phone number so humungous organisations can spam them. Then wonder why they get identity theft.

As for announcing festival dates, I would posit they have been negotiating with more than one option and left it to the last possible moment when all options are dead. Then felt a bit deflated. Part of the reason I don't sit on committees or organise. Except my websites where I have total control. I applaud those that do try to organise things. AND Bridgnorth is the best place to organise it. IMNSHO
