Looks fabulous, but alas we always have quite a few people staying every Easter so unlikely we'll get along. Definitely worth going to if you can!

I was born and grew up in Ellesmere Port, went to The Jug O'Punch Folk Club at The Princess Hotel on Princess Road, Helped to run the Penny Farthing Folk Club at The Travelers Rest on Ledsham Road with Russ Dumbill and Andy Chrimes and started the Bag End Folk Club with Ken & Barry and then Dave, Jen & Lesley at The Princess. Left the Port in 1974.

Liz & I know live in Manchester and play with the Beech Band:

Songs & Tunes with The Beech Band

I never thought for a minute that Ellesmere Port would have its own Festival.

Well done you plotters, planners and organisers and all the musicians and folky supporters. You are doing a fantastic job!

We came home today to avoid the Bank Holiday traffic - it was a terrific weekend with lots of wonderful singing. Many thanks to Derek and Julia for all their hard work!

Really enjoyed the weekend. Fascinating venue for a festival and it seems a shame that the future is looking bleak for the continuation in the present form.
I agree with Kitty that Derek and Julia deserve a great deal of praise for their toil and labour. (Good to see Kitty press-ganged up on stage on Saturday night).
