Vital Questions,
After the very sucessful Mudcat meet at the Jug in Chapel Haddelsey, Yorkshire, UK in May last year(2001)
1 Is there a Yorkshire Gathering at the Jug again this year?
2 If yes, When,? Dates please, 3 If Yes How do I put my name down/book etc to attend? 4 Who is the contact/organiser,?

As I recall, someone (who you know too Micca!) told me that The Jug was threatened by a change of management or something and that it may not happen this year. But that's just rumour as far as I'm concerned. I don't know the details.
Let's have the facts from someone who does know (eg Geoff the Duck and Mrs.Duck etc?). If its on let's know the dates asap, so we can schedule it in our diaries!

Don't mind the wind nor the rolling sea ...

I do believe Mrs Duck is organising another one this year but I don't know the dates. Last year it was two weeks after the German gathering so it might be the same this year.

There is certainly going to be a gathering this year and its already in a lot of diaries for the 24th May. The new owner of the Jug is looking forward to it. The weekly sessions at the Jug have continued and are still well attended. The field at the back has been reseeded and flattened so camping will be even better and as well as the two bar areas there is now a lounge room with sofas which I think Tig has bagsied for at least one session of story telling! I haven't yet queried with Paul about the possibility of a marquee but in the event that it is not available the extra space in the field could allow us to pool some awnings and create our own space. The food and beer are still excellent if a little dearer than under the previous landlord so it should be a great weekend.
I don't think there will be a ceilidh this year as most people seemed happier staying at the pub but I hope that there will be a good balance between song and music sessions especially if we have the weather we had last time.
Look forward to seeing as many as possible there. Let me know if you are coming and what amount of space you'll take up (camping that is). There are one or two B&B places and I will search the archives and post tel. nos. etc.

For those of you who haven't realised this is the week BEFORE the Bank Holiday which has been moved as Mrs Queen has been on the throne for ever such a long time.

Yes I have bagsied the Snug for a story session. You'll see why when you get there.

Paul is a smashing landlord and Jason is still there!!!!

I'm sure that Mags and I will be there. We would love a lift but we might be able to manage by public transport. It's a bit of a pain with instruments, though.

It's a shame about the ceilidh, but I don't think that, as a group, we're committed dancers. Last year, I think we had more in the band than there were on the floor! But I did enjoy the playing.

So, provisionally, that's two of us and a medium-sized tent.

Will this be a weekend gathering again? Wife and I have rescheduled our ill-fated September 2001 trip to May. I believe we fly into London on the 17th for a week, then move to Thoresby, Notts. for the following week. I know we're scheduled for the Chelsea Flower Show on the 23rd and I'm pretty sure we travel on the 24th, so I doubt we'd make it to the Jug that evening, but Sat and/or Sun would be definite possibilities.

Bald Eagle, I hear ya, but the tickets are already purchased. Besides, you'd have to sell tickets for the comedy act if you expected to get me on a dance floor (or any other dance surface for that matter). But I'm sure the music will also be better, so I'll eagerly plan on attending.

Sapper, Selby regularly takes his boys in especially during holidays and they are a similar age. The sessions are on Wednesday from about 8pm.
No, Gillie, no T shirts involved unless you want to organize a separate event. A see how much custard fits down the boxers could also be amusing!

I think it was tuesday by the time we all went home, well the ducks and I and tig and badger...but I cant remember...Can I reserve my spot for the huge tent of mine again. Who needs a marquee...mines a six man tent, although there could be three of us this year. my house mate cat has just joined..catsPHiddle, and were trying to get chris to join aswell. personally i think he just wants to snuggle up with two gorgeous women!!

Jason has left the Jug....hurrah!! young catters are welcome, look at the flock of ducks that attend!!

the jug is still going strong. the foods top notch,especially the paté and toast, and the whitby scampi....can't beat it. and the beers still grand!! If you really must, there's john smiths and fosters and all that rubbish, but there's still all the real ale aswell.....and the cider for grail and gail!! Are we kidnapping grail again?

One thing though, Gillie, I'm not carrying the magician back to the caravan again with no help...he's a foot taller than me almost!! someone else can...or he can stay in the marquee.

Dave, r u bringing spot with you again?

Micca, ur not camping next to me again, u snore!!

We'll be travelling from across the river, or maybe in the river if the rain keeps up and we get flooded. we live in gowdall now.

Our little darling Chris will drive us to the jug for the weekend.

Will the "arabian folk dancing" be going again this year? I propose Les must join in rather than just watching this time!!

Take a camera and say you're the press John!! We should have the marquee again which will be particularly useful early evening when they are still serving food in the pub so we can have a good session in there without skewreing someones spud with a bow or something. Unfortunately if Jason has now gone we may not be able to do the barbeque this year but as there is excellent food available in the pub I'm sure that won't be a problem.
I've ordered the good weather so we'll have no more talk of floods Jez!!!!!

Remember,Jez, that Hensall didn't get flooded last time, apart from a 2 foot deep patch downhill from me at the crossroads when the beck back-flowed with all the water from the flood plains. Mind you, now that those who "know what they are doing" have channelled it into a culvert and filled up its channel...

Les, since Val has left there's no cow pie any more!

By the way folks, I had a letter from Syd and Val last week, and their new enterprise is to be called "Chews and Booze".

Sadly since I refreshed this thread earlier this evening I have been informed that the landlord has been making musicians feel very unwelcome in the pub on the Wednesday session and therefore I will not be organising the gathering this year. This is not to say it will not take place but it is looking unlikely. Apparently musicians were asked not to play as people were in the bar eating (8.30ish) The diners were not approached to see if they had any objections. The landlord had already intimated to me that gatherers would not be welcome in the pub until food was no longer being served ('they don't want violin bows in their ears when they're eating')and when I pointed out that many may well be eating all he could say was that they aren't there every day!! I don't think he realises just what a profitable weekend it was for Syd and Val last year but I can't go ahead with organising an event where we are at best tolerated and at worst left out in the cold! I understand some people have begun to talk about holding the event at another pub but I have not been party to those discussions so unless someone else takes up this the Yorkshire gathering is off.
Jane - feeling very sad and let down!

I don't know if this is any use but in September I went along to a little 'do' in 'The Legendary Saltersgate Tavern' at the hole of Horcum...near Thornton le Dale. The Landlord there was VERY welcoming and I am sure would welcome such a gathering...he does B&B...very good grub and has a good campsite (free) with a barbeque...a fantastic spot too in the Yorkshire Moors within sight of Fylingdales. I don't know how to do clicky thingys but I'm sure a search would find the details..

The beer at the Legendary Saltersgate Tavern is also excellent. This is where it is (I hope) where it says 'PH'.

The Saltersgate is an excellent pub for a gathering. The only problem is that it is not in the most easily accessible spot for those restricted to public transport. I have seen New Year in on at least two occasions at the Saltersgate, and it has sufficient rooms for singing sessions, music only sessions and a mixture to take place without one interfering with the others.

I sure hope something will happen on that weekend, as I was looking forward to meeting numerous UK Cats. The Jug was an almost ideal location as we would be staying only 40 miles away. If it's further away from us, I suspect I'll still plan on making it, even if only for the Saturday.

I note The Jug's website still touts the Wednesday evening sessions and its large contingent of Mudcatters. It also makes mention of the number who attended last years do. Seems if they're becoming less 'music friendly' they might want to change their website.

Fingers crossed, everybody, the landlord at the George & Dragon, where the session is now held on alternate Wednesdays, has expressed great interest in hosting the gathering. There is a piece of land adjoining thr pub, which is owned by the council, but has been used by the pub for events such as fireworks etc. and provided they have no objection to our using the land for that weekend, the gathering will take place on the weekend before the Jubilee bank holiday (24/25 May) as planned.

The George & Dragon is in West Haddlesey. Heading North on the A19 from the M62 , you would turn LEFT instead of right at the crossroads near the Jug. It is about a mile down that road.

Is there a separate room/bar for a tune only session, or is it a Kim Howells nightmare? Don't get me wrong, some of my best friends are folk singers, and I think their musical proclivities are equally valid as straight musicians, but I wouldn't want it to get round that I partake in any singles song orgies.

The George and Dragon does not have separate rooms and was not therefore our original choice. However whist it may lack some of the facilities of the Jug it more than makes up for that with the welcome of Graham and Wendy the landlord and landlady. They are 100% behind us and will bend over backwards to make it a successful weekend! We will all have to be sensible about the song versus music thing which I wish didn't occur. To make sure everyone has a good time I intend to be a bit bossy (so out of character) and will appoint people to wear the hat and take charge of various parts of the weekend so there will be singarounds, there will be sessions but for a lot of the time (especially in the evening) there will be a mixture whether that is in a floor spot situation or just see what happens. Anyone who has visited the Kingston in Hull will know that this can work so long as people are prepared to let it.

The problem with a ceilidh as we found last year is that apart from those playing in the band most of the others at the gathering were not interested. If it hadn't been for the two local morris teams invited to swell numbers there wouldn't have been any dancers.
