The 'run up' to Fylde FF started last night with a concert on board the trawler Jacinta in Fleetwood docks, with Spitting on a roast, Earthbound Souls, Scolds Bridle, and the Alen Bell Band.
Various evening events 'til Thurs when the festival 'proper' starts with Bernard Wrigley in concert. Hope to meet some 'catters' over the weekend. Weather forcast looks good.

Ron

Really looking forward ot this. Are you hosting the singaround folk club on Thursday night in the Steamer as per previous years? Always found this a great way to start the long weekend.

Looking forward to it.
Hoping Camellia will let me do a couple in the North Euston at Friday lunchtime and likewise Dave Jones at the late night Boston tea-party!

LYRIC

It was Summer
On the lake hung a golden haze
It was Summer
It was one of those endless days
so we talked
through a field of clover
and over a sheep-spun hill
and it seemed it would last forever
and it did
until..

came the evening
we swung on a garden gate
it was heaven
you were seven and I was eight
and we watched the stars suspended
walking home down an apple lane
me and rosie
a doll..
a daisychain..
on an evening that would never come again

(Spike Milligan)

I won't have to fight my way through the smoking infants on the steps of the Gasworkers Club this year. I think the venue has ahem, been retired! Aye, it's the bright lights of the North Euston and the New Boston for me and my wardrobe! I think the weather is set fair too.

Your charismatic MC-ing will always brighten up any dreary venue!
Looking forward to catching up as always.

Ah, will miss the gas worker's club - something cultishly edgey about it.
Certainly a unique venue, 'available for christenings, receptions and funeral wakes' if I remember the poster correctly (or combinations there of)! When I saw it omitted from the draft programme I wondered if it had gone the way of so many working men's clubs.

Unique is the right word Myrtle's Cook. I'm sure it's still operating but I guess representations were made about its suitability in recent years. I might just have to check it out as it's not far from the Wetherspoon and I have some vouchers to use.
Mind you, the British Legion upstairs hall took some beating, certainly with regard to the backstage facilities! The sign up there said something like "all guns must be checked in on the desk" - I'd like to think that was a spoof as the Wild West decor reflected its use as a C&W venue but I was never too sure!!!!

We had a great weekend and were disappointed not to be able to stay for the Survivors session tonight. The caravan site left a lot to be desired and there were quite a few parked along the prom because the space ran out. We had to wait for people to leave before we could get out this morning. Still, that didn't spoil the weekend!

The North Euston ballroom!

You are definitely upwardly mobile, Clive.

The N.E. ballroom is a delightful venue, very Jane Austen and Nigel on sound was as ever, a faultless man to work with. Maybe the lighting could use some extra frills and touches but all in all, it's quite majestic. Some exciting performers and the New Penguin English Folk Songs presentation orchestrated by Brian Peters was exemplary - Bella Hardy just gets better and better.
Don't you meet some lovely people too at Fylde?

We were on the second 'overflow' caravan site and had lots of room, not squashed at all. Apparently, there was plenty of room on the camping site also. We had a fabulose weekend as always. Thank you very much all who helped organise the festival.

We couldn't get to the New Penguin show in time.

Instead we went to Jim Savile's talk on Cicely Fox Smith, with illustrations in song by Margaret Walters. And very enjoyable it was too.

Dougie MacLean was the headliner on Sunday, but still found time to play fiddle in the session in the bar.

I agree about the North Euston ballroom, a great venue.

Ah the gasworkers club, well it was looking a bit tired and spartan upstairs and the ceiling was giving way in places. R.I.P

The New Boston. Anyone else agree that it is way too small and very hot in there, yet gets allocated some good artists. I didn't go in there this year because of the heat. Organisers think about another venue please.

The Festival was as good as ever thanks to Alan and his team.
I only went on the Saturday but well worth a days ticket.
Good to see Mike Harding there, and Clive was as Lively as ever.
Dave Jones with his Jokes about his shirt size. and some GREAT MUSIC AND SONG.

Long may Fylde continue.
