Allow me to be the first of many to point out that SIN is around everywhere, and easy enough to find, if you believe in that sort of thing.
However, I think you wanted SINGing, not SINning, so good luck. Where are you located, or were you just looking for something to talk about?
Blessings,
Barbara

But seriously folks..........

I'm desperately seeking w/end folkin' about events that cost next to nuthin'- don't begrudge payin' reasonable amount for capin', etc.

Number of issues involved here:

I enjoy singarounds & music sessions & want to indulge meself & chums in these during forthcoming sping/summer/autumn season, but because am not into attending 'Guest' events, resent paying out extortionate amounts for w/end 'official' folk festivals, where I/we have no intention of attending concert venues, but merely wish to join kindred spirits in sings & tunes.


Anybody have info on 'unofficial' / fringe events as described above?

Thanks in advance,

Mr H

I'm always looking for these sinarounds, no seriously I feel exactly the same about festivals and very few will allow you to camp without buying a Season Ticket - it's worse for me as the driver/caravan tower isn't so fussed about going to festivals now and would go mad if we bought him a ticket he wouldn't be using. I'm looking for camp sites - with fishing but near enough for me to get to the singarounds. I think Beverley have a fringe festival and that some camping space for fringe 'people' - cheap but not free. Yes Barnsley is good - Buntingford Winter Sing in November - Murph's do - search on the Norwell Happening it's 28th May weekend.

It looks like Cleckheaton caters for some camping only tickets. If you do find any more in the North/Midlands please let me know.

Good Luck                     Carol

I'll certainly post all I get to know, cos it's my intention to visit as many fringe or song & music (no guests)w/ends & fests as I can this & coming seasons.

Also, I aim to find camping concessions at big, guest fests, so as to be able to attend the fringe events of those.

Up to now, my free/ almost free folking calender is:

May 14-16 Wheaton Aston FF, Staffs

May 14-16 Fox & Hounds, Bridstowe, Dartmoor

May 1-3 Mudcat Eurogathering, Hull

May 6-9 Holmfirth FF

May 21-23 Mudcat Yorkshire Gathering

May 28-31 Chester FF (I steward here-so get free ticket)

June 11-13 Bishops Castle FF, Shrops

June 18-20 Middlewich FF

June 17-20 Beverly FF fringe

June 18-20 Alcester & Arden FF

June 25-27 Dent FF, Cumbria

just returned from superb w/end's folking about+ camping at only £1.50 per night at 3 Stags Heads Inn,Wardlow Mires, Derbyshire.

This event is on every Sat nite but seems pretty well pot luck who turns up.

We went down as group of 3 & another of our chums arrived as well plus another couple from Saddleworth, so the Sat afternoon outdoor sesh was brill, then the evening in the pub sesh with 4 very strong real ales including the most appropriately titled 'Lurcher'- a black rich & fruity beer at 8%!! + several local singers & musicians.

Camped in farmers field next door to pub- basic facilities toilet,washbasin, water tap- but all very clean.

After packing up on Sun morning, we were tempted back for more 'Lurchers' & songs in the pub in the afternoon.

A most pleasant experience & we'll certainly go again sometime soon.

Thanks to contributors above.

Our most recent w/end jaunt was to Audlem Bagpipe& Hurdygurdy Day[Sat 6 Nov] but we couldn't camp cos there was a bonfire & firework display on the field & tents prob would/ve melted!

We're currently researching the Cotton Arms at Wrenbury [near Nantwich] which has a 365 basic campsite - water+ toilets, to see if they'll accommodate musicians/siners etc.

We've also been the 3 Stags Heads, Wardlow Mires, Derbyshire recently - another 365 water+bog+washbasin[cold water]which has a freeforall sesh every Sat nite & will also accommodate any other nights as well.

Realistically we're seeking w/ends away within striking distance of Chester-i.e. up to 100miles radius away.

Anyone got seshes/sinarounds Fri,SAt etc?

If you want to have a really good time you must attend folkmob's camping weekend at Knockholt many mudcatter's attend the twice yearly camp - no entry fee just £4 a night per tent/caravan for the farmer. So if you share lodgings it works out fairly cheap.
