Congratulations and well done to the Bull's Head.

But don't forget that other Folk Extravaganza, The International Day of Dance in Longford Park, Stretford on Sunday 4 May.

And, more to the point, the Barn Dance on Saturday 8 March with Madcap at St Matthew's Hall, Stretford to raise money and awarness about the big day, Oh, and only £5.

Went into the website out of curiousity and thought it was excellent. I particularly enjoyed reading about 'The History' as I was one of the regulars in the early days at the Crime View, and went on wonderful weekends to Haweswater with the gang (in my youth of course!!)

I'll pass your message on, John...one day you might be over on a visit, perhaps?

Floor spots as well, Steve - - in between booked artists and performing in the very same room...it's all very cosy.

Ali...glad you liked the site - - Bernard Cromarty, our webmaster, will be delighted. I didn't know you used to be an OD regular! Years ago when Pat ran the Cross Keys the group I was in, Tim Bobbin, did the residency there when she was on maternity leave.

Look forward to seeing you all...

PS. - - Big Bad Bob...let Pauline know what you thought of Taggart and Wright..she likes a bit of feedback. Missed 'em myself - - I was on a 'sicky' but I believe they were very good!

Thread jumping hey, so that's what I do, sounds good fun. I was doing a bit of that but I was also moving Harry's thread up to the top. Sometimes us Brits get a bit lost on Mudcat.

Ok, while I'm here I might as well mention:
Chorlton Folk Club
Thursday Nights
South West Manchester Cricket Club
Ellesmere Road
Off Wilbraham Road
Chorlton
Free admission I think and very tasty hand pumped Hydes bitter.

The Barn Dance, supporting Friends of Longford Park International Day of Dance Sunday 4 May in the Park, was a great night. Music by the fantastic Madcap, calling by Ray, who is truly brilliant.

Thanks Harry

I'm aiming to be there around noon to start shifting furniture, changing lightbulbs and so on, though we hope to get underway with the first singaround at about 1:30pm - earlier if enough turn up! We expect to finish around 11:30pm each day, so there's value for money - a pound an hour on a weekend ticket!

The way the singarounds work is each person gets one song, and can either stay seated where they are, stand up, or go to the 'front'.
We write floor singers' names on a list as they arrive, which becomes the running order for the singaround. It's much fairer that way.

When it's time for a guest to do their first set, the singaround stops, to continue where we left off after a short break when the set is over. After the guest's second set we have a longer break to allow guests to sort out their gear... then we carry on singing until the next guest is ready to start.

If you intend to sing, make sure either myself or Pauline has you listed! I will be running the singarounds, as Pauline has enough to do selling raffle tickets and looking after the guests! John will have enough to do keeping Pauline's beer coming!

We usually have a 'per guest' arrangement, but Pauline or John would make that decision. I suppose I'm saying 'yes'!

Better to get there early, though! It's more fun that way! If you need directions you'll find them on our website (see above for the link).

Everyone who has been to an Open Door Extravaganza, be they guests or 'punters', has commented on the warm, friendly atmosphere - in fact, Dave Jones (of North West Federation fame, far too big to have been in the Monkees!) was completely bowled over at our last Extravaganza by the way we have our guests and singarounds in the same room, which results in everyone mingling socially rather than being segregated!

All our usual regulars expect to be there - Archie Tawney, Brian (the Pub Prop Man) and his wife, Cath, Maggie, Steve, Phil, Bob, Iain, Harry (Harryoldham), Sara, Pauline, John and me. We also expect to see others who visit less often such as Norman, Graham, Yvonne (Diz), Helen (HelenJ), John Routledge... erm, ever noticed? Once you start a list like this you start to panic because you just know you're going to miss someone out, and they'll get upset and take the huff!! Ho hum!

So... be there! Or be somewhere else...!

The look on Harvey's face was a picture when it dawned on him how many 'catters were there - I made it thirteen, including Harvey. In a few days time I hope to make the rest of the photographs available; in the meantime, you can see some of them by clicking the link.

I'm sure with a bit of planning we could organise accommodation a little better next time. It's just a shame my great big house is such a tip... maybe I could clear enough space for four or so... don't hold yer breath, though!! The daft thing is there are rooms at the Bull's Head itself, but the owners aren't making use of them.

From our point of view it was really good to see so many new faces. We have a nucleus of around fifteen or so regulars, plus others who visit occasionally. We had thirty or more in the room most of the time, so we are approaching the time when the Extravaganza may well be self-financing!

A very enjoyable first class day on Sunday

The guests contrasted beautifully and there were many many highspots in the singarounds.

Harvey Andrews was the final guest and it was the first time I had seen him give a full performance as opposed to a "Meet the Artist" type of event.

His songs really are very moving and thought provoking in equal measure. Great performance Harvey

Congrats to all involved in the Production
