And I'm free! (well, Libran anyway!)

We're there with the Roaring 40's. It's a great weekend - only problem is I always arrive back home with no voice (to Geoff's relief) and a hangover following the copious amounts of wine.

See you all there,
Ali

Bad news......   

The three Mariners Landlord has had to put a block on any singing during Thursday day other than at 4.00-4.30pm when the "show" goes out! - scared of the PEL Police? as his license does't start until Friday.......

so don't turn up for a sing during the day on Thursday there as it won't be going ahead.......

The BBC Blue bus WILL be there and everyone is welcome to pop in have a play on the computers/internet or try and stump Chris with a PC problem (Not PEL PC....)

NB. NO SINGING................. Till FRIDAY.................. DOH!!

NNB This has NO EFFECT on the festival proper just BBC cover on Thursday.

Edain... et al

The bus will be at The Three Mariners from 10am

- Normal show format:

Maria will be doing interviews during the day (I've put her in direct contact with Scolds Bridle and Red Duster) + pre recorded material, The Bus will be giving access to the internet plus IT advise all day - during the day there's usually 3-4 very short broadcasts - saying whats going on... and advertising the 4pm show - at 4.05pm the show goes out with recorded and live interviews etc....... during the programme there's a 3 or 4 min break for traffic news.....

Jan Lardner - co-presenter of Lancashire Drift will have her show on Thursday night 8pm (Radio Lancashire) which is also dedicated to the Festival and will be there over the weekend with Ken wearing Chantey Cabin hat with a great range of CDs (even though she hasn't any of ours!!

So come along..... we'll get up there at about 10.30-11.00 am and see if there's any objection to sessions in the pub (I can't see any problems but you have to ask!) and hopefully it should be a nice day.....


Pete

Just read the bumf on Lancaster Maritime.. Any pub music sessions? Or is it really singers of shanties with out without recognised sailor/shanty costume? If there are "fringe" sessions I will make the 140 mile round trip...Thanks.

Just for info - The Radio Lancashire BBC Blue Bus is going up to Lancaster on Thursday 17th April - and would like to do the whole programme on a music basis - Maria Felix Vas (the presenter) would like to interview people, record music etc, for the show - the bus will be at The Three Mariners, Lancaster for the day with a transmission going out at 4.05pm to 4.30pm - why not pop along and see the bus (surf the internet) have a chat with Maria - and sing a shanty or two.... get into the festival mood early!

Pollywogs and Shellbacks alike!

Pete - sorry for the re-pete but there's two freds

a bit difficult when the fringe locations (pubs) are used as Festival venues. I don't fancy trying to start something fringy in a pub when Johhny Collins is performing there!

I know what snuffy means, but isn't a 'fringe' supposed to be 'fringey'. Perhaps you shouldn't expect it to be organised for you? Isn't that the idea?

Lancaster .... being held on a Bank Holiday is a 4 day event.
Not all artists are booked for all four days many are booked for just two - so there is lots of variety.

Parking can be a problem on Friday and Saturday but Sunday and Monday there are OK and lots of people with campers park (and sleep) along the quayside.

There are a variety of venues, from smoky, noisy pubs to posh hotels and a cracking arts theatre.

I only manage 2 days (usually Sun/Mon) but always enjoy myself.

Pro:
It's free
There's lots happening in the pubs, as well as concert venues

Con:
There's no camping nearby - you have to do B&B or travel in
There's no fringe to speak of - it's basically "shut up and listen" in the pubs, rather than singarounds.

I've enjoyed it previously, but I'm giving Miskin a first try this year (hope it's more "fringey").

WassaiL! v

Not really Mr Happy, there is a press gang that roams around by the museum area (and the odd batch of mummers). There are many venues, most of which are free entry (I think only the museum and the final night do are pay for but could be wrong there). There are sessions in several pubs and some outdoor performances behind the meusem and in the town shopping area itself. I've been many times and enjoy it every year.

i guess its the usual sort of stuff- a lot of stout & middle aged teachers, social workers & architects dressed up like old time fishermen, some with 'captain' caps on- bellowing out shantys interminably one after the other! 8-)
