Subject: Blitherscrum Folk Festival 2015
From: Vic Smith
Date: 30 Mar 15 - 08:12 AM

I am still struggling to find the date of this year's festival.
I know that there is a complicated formula for finding it. You have to add the ages of the last five prime ministers when they came into office - that is fairly simple - but that has to be divided by an astrological date; the square root of the date of the last time the Sun was in Uranus. I have tried the calculation several times and each time the festival date works out to be the 7th weekend in June - and somehow that does not seem right.
Can anyone help?

That would make it the 2nd. weekend of Julember! Clashes with The Lamer Bush and Pot Bellied Pork Scratchings and Real Lager Festival of course.

It will fall on the mid weekend beween the Umpteenth of Septober and Octember the Nerth.

I must remember to check with Matron to see if I am eligable for to be let out for that weekend.

I'd appreciate a lift if anyone with a car or a tandem or a wheelbarrow knows where and when it is.

Wheelbarrows are NOT allowed at Blitherscrum. In case of rain, rollerskates are supplied, but you can't park them next to the tents. They have to be underneath your sleeping bag.

They were allowed in the past.... I can remember a family of six sleeping under a wheelbarrow.

Vic, did you remember to recite the incantation as you whistled the national anthem of Bolukstan ?

If you do manage to get to the festival why not pop over to Upton Ogood and visit us at the Medieval Gas Stove Museum located in the C16th century smokeworks.

Good luck.

Stanley tried to remember which national anthem to whistle and suggested it might have been Outer Borgrovia. I told him "That's Bolukstan"

Does anybody have an accommodation list for Blitherscrum. The last time I went I took pot luck and ended up in a very bizarre place. It was full of half naked women wearing leather thongs and carrying whips around with them.

Some very strange blokes in there as well. One of them was down on his hands and knees while one of these women sat on his back asking "Who's a naughty boy then?".

I kept my bedroom door locked that night, I can tell you.

What if it didn't exist asks Harmonium Hero? Would it still be on the same date? Would the same people not go? We need to know these things...

Bounty. So that's what all the cries of "austerity!!!" were about. I thought it was just a few locals indulging in a bit of sado-masochistic rumpy pumpy. That would also explain why one of these guys was called The Chief Whip, while the others were just ordinary whips.

I clicked on Vic's link, and, apart from a strange sensation in the nether regions nothing happened. Comments please to Blitherscrum Borough Council c/o broadcasting house.

If Vic Smith is giving you strange sensations in the nether regions I doubt Blitherscrum Borough Council would be able to help.

Blitherscrum Borough Council did once have a Vic Smith-Inspired Nether Regions Strange Sensation Advice Department. In fact, I was employed as an advisor by them at one time. However, like so many other services that were once considered essential - Citizen's Advice, Home care for the disabled, libraries, doctors' surgeries, schools, hospitals - all have disappeared from Blitherscrum in the government cuts of the last five years.

New event for this year: Samba Drum Rolling. Competitors each grab a Samba Drum, take it to the top of the hill and, at a given signal, roll it down the hill and chase after it to see how many pieces it's in after hitting the pile of bodhrans at the bottom. There isn't a prize; just the joy of competing, and the appreciation of the crowds.

HELP!!!

I've just woken up from the mammoth drinking session that ended last years Blitherscrum. There's no-one else here and the gate is locked so I can't get off the campsite.

I need to get home and find a clean pair of socks so that I be ready for the 2015 festival.

Has anyone got a key ... or a clue?

Some friends and I would like to resurrect the old Whitby Live Kipper Dance, famous in these parts in the 18th & 19th Century. We've found old manuscripts showing the steps but are struggling to find live kippers (round here they eat them, bit like their young). Can anyone help.

I hear that the river Blither which flows past, and sometimes through, the Blitherscrum camp site, houses some rare species of eel.

Dunno whether they can do the kipper dance, but man, you want to see them dance the conger.
