If you want more responses, Sally, I would suggest that you start another thread with a title something like "Winter Festival at Bishop's Castle?". I do not think everyone will be looking at this thread now ...

Thanks all for your lovely comments. It was fun wasn't it. Jan's van left today after having help from the local kids to advertise her next gig; Ashby de la Zouche. Lovely name that!

Oh the tails I could tell about things that happened over the weekend. We had a great 'usual' session in the 6 Bells Sunday evening too. It was the usual 2nd Sunday in the month 'do' and it was great fun too.

Looking forward to the photo's Mr R.

Still say the first page should be the info page. If there is a technical reason for it not being so there is a technical fix. See how cresby.com does it for one solution.

Might be a good idea not to have to click to get the info.

I always reckon that good websites say what they are on the first page, right at the top, to catch the curious, or uncommitted. The whole point about not knowing where BC (apart from Shropshire) is that it tells you it is a sleepy little town far from suburbia that is not overrun by commerce. It has two real ale breweries.

and two real Shropshire lemonade purveyors. So good they write songs about it.

There is a ceilidh which I probably won't be at - torn muscle (ceilidhing). But I have just finished redifying the crutch!!!!!

Wow Hawker, what can I say? The singaround isn't that far from the campsite, about 50yds. You can just turn up it should be ok. I do hope the op goes well and that you feel up to the long journey.

Sal,
I am having a knee operation on the 7th of June and may not be terribly mobile, if I can persuade KB to drive all the way there and back we would love to come, but I will have to see how I feel..... are the pubs a long walk from the camp site? Do we have to book in before or can we just turn up?
I have it on good authority that it is worth the journey from Cornwall.

Life's hard. We have very little money to spend on the things that we enjoy. I asked a some people at the big folk festivals what they like and dislike about the events. They dislike paying a lot of money to camp, and watching concerts they're not really interested in, when all they really want to do is go to the pubs and join in with the sessions and singarounds. This gave me an idea. What about organising a fringe without the main event. So here it is; Bishop's Castle Folk Weekend. This is our third year; the last two have been very successful.

An event that is inexpensive, and a chance to sing , play and tell stories and poetry. An opportunity to step outside of life for a while and have fun. I know that if you join in and sing with lots of other people it's very difficult to feel unhappy at the same time.

So if you enjoy singing in the bath or when washing up, this event in Bishop's Castle on 11th, 12th and 13th June is designed for you. The folk weekend is a throw-back to the days of music and song while drinking ale in your favourite pub. We have both English and Irish music sessions, and singarounds too. Come and stay on our campsite. (£12.00 per adult, Free for kids under 14, for the weekend) Leave your car and have fun in this pretty little market town on the Welsh border. Listen and join in with the old songs and music that will echo in your mind. Chorus songs to swing your pint pot.

This is a weekend to take advantage of all Bishop's Castle has to offer. Real ale brewed on site, good food in the pubs and restaurants, swimming pool, interesting shops and the songs and music of Old England.

Do you like folk/rock ceilidh music? We have it on the Friday night at the Three Tunns Public House. (£6.00 per adult under 14s free when accompanied by an adult). We present Ardvaark from Coventry, returning by popular request, because they are a brilliant ceilidh band that must not be missed.

On the campsite Jan's Blackboard Van from Cornwall will be entertaining the children, again back by popular demand, with weird and wonderful imaginative things to do. You can paint her van any colour you like, it's a big blackboard! Her labyrinth and sausage socks will boggle your minds!

This year we've asked local historians Mike and Terry, (who run a free open Rhyme and Tell session on the 4th Sunday of the month in the Six Bells) to run a session for us. So come and listen or bring your stories, poetry and prose and join 'The Winged Word' in the Town Hall, along with craft stalls from England and Wales in our Trade Market. Come and relax for the weekend.
