I'm running lunchtime singarounds (with festival guests, including Keith Donnelly, the Alan Bell Band, Anne Lennox-Martin)at Chippenham next weekend - in the Cause centre (non-smoking venue).   Hope to see some Catters - even though it coincides with the Admiral's big sing a few yards down the road.

Chippenham weather forecast from a website is now offering Showers, Light Rain, Scattered Showers, and Showers, for Fri through Monday. I'm just wondering how we will know when the Showers stop and the Scattered Showers or the Light Rain begins?

Anyway, it all sounds decidedly damp. Just as well there are plenty of nice warm halls and pubs for us to congregate in!

Showers tend to be heavyish and shortish lived. Light rain can go on all day. It did yesterday.   And the heavy showers. Crosby was mentioned in the national weather reports yesterday as the wettest place in the country. Apparently we had half an inch in an hour or something.   Most of it seems to be in my car. :-(

Comments on Chippenham Festival 2003?

I went,danced, played, sang, ate, drank, met lots of nice people and had a really great time.

Weather was dampish - but tolerable. Narrower range of entertainment than Sidmouth - but then, who who else has that much? Fish and chips not as good as Whitby - but Cornish pasties far better. some excellent real ales at reasonable prices (for Southern England.)

Highlights?

Excellent programme of concerts (had to miss some favourite performers because of other commitments, but those I did hear were all first-rate)

Lots of good street dancing to watch

Great crack in the Old Road Tavern (particularly the French music & dance session in the barn on Sunday night).

Super late ceilidh with Heckety and Gordon Potts

Wonderfully anarchic late-night singaround/session in the campsite ablutions block

Would recommend it to anyone as a first class festival.


Wassail!

Super weekend, as ever. What I like about Chippenham is there is so much going on there is always something to do. OK there's so much you have to compromise but it's all advertised and listed in the programme. You don't have to have private knowledege to know where things are happening.

Barring all that doing and me being very unwell I would say 'You all missed a damnably good weekend chaps and chapesses!'

I really enjoyed the weekend, and heard some great singing (including Mrs Lemon and Schantieman). Of Islands and Oceans was very like a Voices concert at Bedworth, MC'd by Johnny Collins, with other vocal contributions from John Connolly, Dave and Anni, Steve Jordan, Roy Clinging and me. (Venue fantastic acoustically, but hard on the bum on account of the seats being pews.)

Thank you James, Debbie, Geoff and Caroline (and Caroline's sister) for your spot in the Cause Centre singaround on Sunday.

Sorry I didn't manage to catch up with Mike of Northumbria (or Hexham Morris). When the sun shone on Monday morning I watched the percussive dancing near Butter Cross, and was really impressed by Footnotes.

LTS - there was an impressive range of shaky fruit and veg on offer. I thought the aubergine and carrot were just weird though.

Hovering Bob's right though - there was just loads of good stuff. I just hope, Cllr, you and Carol can make it next year.

Ms Lemon - I sampled your product on several occasions. It was always pleasant, but a real life-saver after dancing in the parade. Incidentally, it was me who obtained a Swiss Army knife for emergency repairs to your lemon-crushing machine. I trust it's fully recovered now - hope to see you again at Sidmouth, and/or Whitby.

I think it has something to do with the Banks being on holiday. So why was the National a week before Easter?

Mr Red

Sometimes the National is a week after Easter, sometimes a week before. And very occasionally, when there's FMD, not either.

Some of the guests at Chippenham (eg Boden and Spiers and Roy Clinging)performed at Chester as well. Not quite as daft as the year that Collins and Mageean performed at Chippenham, then Cleethorpes, then back at Chippenham.

Next year's Chippenham will be 28-31 May 2004 (and the National will be 26-28 March).

hello folks

This is Julian, currently the displays organiser at Chippenham.

Thanks for all the good comments about the festival, I will pass them on at our wash-up meeting.

Generally the weather was good, it was just Sunday afternoon that was slightly disrupted by a bad shower but compared to '77 a mere drop in the ocean.

Old Pull and Push hold the record for distance over the weekend a few years back now though. They did Chippenham, Chester, Cleethorpes and then back to Chippenham for Monday evening. Now that is either stamina or sheer stupidity. I'll let you all decide.

I'll see some of you at ALcester and at Bromyard. And I hope to see all of you at Chippenham 2004.

Cheers

Went down for the day yesterday with mairi. A good lunchtime sing with the Admiral and Pearl, then did unusual (for me) things like watching dance displays, strolling round the town, eating, drinking Ms Lemon's lemonade, etc.

The evening sing at the Three Crowns seems well established now. I heard it ran till 3am Friday, and yesterday's was still going strong when we left at 12.30. Lots of Mudcatters there - alanww, my guru always said, Richard Atkins, Merrick (without Dairy), JudeL, John Henry.

I didn't have to look for Jeff Warner, because he was one of the booked guests in my Sunday singaround - the others were Hanging Johnny.

Had a very busy time at Chippenham but the schedule allowed me to see some of the Friday night concert including first on Keith Kendrick, Ashley Hutchins' Morris On Show (I get a mention on the Great Grandson of Morris On CD for assistance with Derbyshire Morris), and then Brass Monkey - shame their trumpeter Howard Jones is not well.

Paul Bridgewater at Bridge Violins lent me his nice red double bass for a couple of workshops on Monday morning and then sent his interested customers to see us.

Signed my name on the Mudcat visitors list at Ms Lemmon's emporium.

Got to see some displays, notably Jennifer Hill the clog dancer and Sister Act on the arena. Good stuff.

Lastly called into the ceilidhs later on, mostly for a drink, too knackerd for anything else.

Didn't get to any sessions, perhaps next time.

Chippenham 2004: my thanks to all of the following:

to the festival organisers for doing a first rate job – and doing it unobtrusively

to Chez Nous Catering for their excellent on-site food and cheerful service

to Mrs Lemon for her refreshing brew, always dispensed with a smile

to everyone who watched and applauded Hexham Morris Men's performances

to Allan, who gave us a top hat which he no longer needed

and to all the charming ladies who danced with me at the evening ceildhs.

Apologies to Herga Kitty for not attending any of her lunchtime singarounds – unfortunately I was dancing, preparing to dance, or recovering from dancing at the relevant time.

All in all, Chippenham 2004 was a very enjoyable experience (despite the 7 hour drive at either end). I'd recommend it to anybody, and look forward to returning again soon.

no, BIGmrC, I'm not Lisa, but yes, I do know her slightly. I was not at Chippenham long this year, but enjoyed some of what I saw, and managed to get out of the rain just in time on the Mon!
