I'll be there too, not quite sure what duties yet. But if it's anything like the last two Bedworths it'll be a grand weekend to see the festival season out on a high note.
A Gather would be wonderful - but finding a suitable venue this year might be difficult especially if Malc's still frantically trying to sort venues for the official events!

Yes, but Harry's right isn't he? I went there a while ago, and quite frankly, although there were a few good artists on, the 'fringe' part of the Festival was indeed in the hands of some undeniably freakish people. Didn't like it, sorry.

Oh, I dont' know MGAS, windup (most likely) or not, it brings the thread up the list... Has to be A Good Thing.

"Adrian Slump", or "Harry Monk" (weren't they a defunct/bankrupt band? from mid-Wales or the South of England, I forget), anonymous slagging is like voyerism - only satisfactory to certain people. I know loving oneself is a good thing, but don't take it to extremes.

MBS is flaming - MBS (as opposed to Lynne and George) is not even a Mudcat member, at least not under that cookie (I checked), so can't be PM'd.

As El Greko has pointed out, refreshing the thread (even irrelevantly) gets it back to the top.

I'm not fully up to date with the venue problem - I know there is one, because Malc heard in August that the rebuilding work at the Civic Centre won't be finished in time for the festival - but would it be feasible for Catters to gather in the White Swan?

I was going to say something rude to MBS, but, being a nice person, I won't.

MBS, if you follow some of the threads you will find that, by the end, they have gone completely away from the original subject. It's like a conversation...wanders about as the people in it chat, and all the better for that. If you don't like it, don't read it.

Hi,
Just butting in to the thread to say - want a Catters Meet then I'll find you a venue!
Just also to let you all know that the current situation with venues is: Civic Hall refurbishment will not be finished in time (only the main hall will be available so the Craft fair and Ceilidh will be going on in there) Arts Centre next door will be OK so Voices will be there as usual and all the day/evening concerts on saturday, plus we will be using the Arts Centre friday evening. We have the very plush Liberal Club for concerts all day saturday "The All Day Folk Cabaret" with all the main guests appearing during the day (also cheap beer and catering facilities) - fridays main concert will be in the Conservative club, and the Ceilidh in the Ex-Servicemans Club (sorry we can't keep complete political impartiality as the Labour Club has closed down!) We are also using the Fire Station Social club friday/saturday and sunday, a nice room that holds about 60 people and beer at £1.40 a pint and just a few paces from the indoor camping! Childrens events will be in the Methodist Church Hall (opposite the White Swan)- Needless to say the White Swan will remain a hive of activity over the week-end with song and music sessions plus the upstairs clubroom. All venues are within 100 yards or so of the Civic Hall. We are starting to build up the info on the web site but as you can imagine it's been very difficult sorting out venues at this late stage.
Also in reply to "Are there any tickets left" - the use of the new venues has given us the ability to greatly increase capacity and far better concert facilities so we can up our ticket numbers, otherwise we'd be getting close to capacity now.
Sorry to go on - I must be getting excited!!
Malc.

Someone said that Bedworth is not 'the prettiest of towns' (or words to that effect). I wonder if the fact that the festival takes place in the winter doesn't help? No town is at its best in December.
For what it's worth, Bedworth reminded me a lot of Crewe - and, rest assured, that's a compliment. (Crewe is another much-maligned town which many people do not bother to look at too closely.)
And I seem to recall passing a truly delightful spot in Bedworth not far from the town centre with some wonderful old buildings.
From memory, I think they were almshouses or something of the sort.

You're right about Bedworth and Crewe - both honest-to-goodness hardworking towns with no frills.

The Nicholas Chamberlain almshouses in the centre of town were given by an old Bedworth lad who became Lord Mayor of London a long time ago.

By the way saw the Civic Hall a couple of days back - looks like a bomb-site - all adds to the delights of picturesque Bedworth!

MBSLynne, re your suggestion for a Mudgather without singing, just for meeting/chat: I don't see that as necessary, certainly not as something the Festival should schedule. An organised "meet and greet" takes valuable time from the festival schedule, and with many Catters already knowing each other, it would only benefit few.

The Catters singaround serves as a way to not only put faces to handles, but also to hear each other sing or play. If Catters meet at the singaround, they can then step outside for a chat in twos/threes/etc, or agree to have lunch or a drink together, or something like that.

I'll certainly join one, if it's arranged, provided it does not clash with my schedule on the festival programme.

It would also be nice to have instrumentalist Catters joining, not just singers, for a nice mixed session. (Someone else already said that, I am just repeating it).

And we need one of us to step up and take it on. MGAS did a grand job at Banbury, but she might want to sit back and relax this time. Volunteers/suggestions?

So sensitive El Greko! It would be nice to sit back & enjoy, though running the Banbury MudGather was a pleasure apart from having that cold!

If no-one else steps up I'll take the reins again, so I guess the answer is 'Yes please Malc, Saturday teatime sounds just right!!' We can works things out between us over the next few weeks & I'll bring the Blow-up Cat. Anyone got any choccies????

Agree it would be good to have more of a 'mixed session' with more instrumentalists, are we really predominantly singers?

Subject: RE: Bedworth
From: GUEST,Noreen
Date: 22 Oct 04 - 06:14 AM

To try and combine the 'getting to know' bit with singing together, how about each catter introducing themselves before their bit, perhaps saying where they're from or whatever? That gives others a handle for a chat later when time allows. I liked seeing all the 'new' catters at the Banbury meet, but would have liked to know who they were!

Just a line to say the Mudcatters Meet is now programmed in for 4.15pm to 6pm in the (very nice)upstairs room of The White Horse, a new venue for the festival just a few yards from The White Swan, so it's easy to find! The venue will also host the Folk Club session from Noon to 4pm. The pub will also welcome singing in music in the spacious downstairs lounge throughout the week-end.
We are at last able to start shaping the events list and running order (as we've got some venues to put the events in now!) and hope to have the working programme on the web site by sunday evening - click here for link. I've assumed Kitty & Hilary will play the hostesses with the mostesses from what they've been saying, and the festival will provide a box of choccies to get you going (although we might eat the purple ones first!)
Cheers!

Dave4Guild & shortybrenda (Dave Bennett & Brenda Hart)

Leraud (Lynn Heraud & Pat Turner)

Buddug (Vicki of Trefor & Vicki Willams)

Am gonna be off-line for a few days, but hope to get access again before coming up to Bedworth. Can someone please figure out a time for the Friday upstairs in the White Swan meet? It seems like after 9pm is the first time mentioned.....

Sorry I haven't had time to list names of Catters coming to either the Official Gather or the Unofficial Meet, but it'll be good to see / hear you all again at the weekend!!

If I don't get back on the Cat before then, safe journeys all & don't forget to bring the most important ingredient apart from yourselves - Chocolate!

When you're feeling down, the best way up is chocolate.... the chocolates with crunchy celery centres, provided by Lynne at yesterday's Mudcat gather, were really rather good. As was the singing.

Many thanks to Malc for programming the session, to Morty for doing most of the work running it, to Madcat and Piddling Pete for realising that other people's fingers would do the walking for Jack to keep the singing going. And to everyone who sang, and/or brought chocolate.

Hi Everyone,

Great session at the White Horse in spite of Bedworth Town Council trying to blow up the town centre (well it sounded like that). Nice to see Mudcatters in person - but can we have name stickers next time so we can work out who is who as I only caught a few names.

Looking forwards to the next one (hopefully without the French Market so we can find a parking space).

yeah it tasted nice but we'll be staying away from that provencal chicken if it's there another time. It upset both of us on Sat Afternoon/evening & was still making it's presence felt on Sun. & no it wasn't overindulgence in alcohol as on Sat by the time I wasn't stewarding I was starting to feel uncomfortable & the beer was going down very slowly to the point where I gave away the last one as I just didn't want it.

What a great festival, with some fine singarounds in particular. Shame I missed the official gather, due to hosting commitments elsewhere throughout the gather period, but we managed to get a nice alt. gather going on Fri evening and at least I caught up with some of you over the weekend at various places.

Bedduth, The Day After: – I drove back from the Festival with a song in my heart. Bedworth was SO fantastic – the asbestos threat rendered the Civic Hall unusable, the rail-less steps were a mountaineering challenge and the one-way system around the town must have been designed by a sadist – and yet whatever obstacles they faced, the organisers kept smiling!
Thanks, Malc, for all your unflappable and efficient gaffership. It rubbed off on the punters, too – there was an overwhelming ambience and feeling of general goodwill to all persons.
Sorry about my persistent cough – I've been sucking Vocalzones until I'm blue in the face. Pat Spoons and Splott Man both picked up colds in the past week and I didn't want to be the odd one out.
Oh – hope you arrived back safely, SM and PS. Was Scooby on the train? The M50 was closed and I - like thousands of other drivers - endured queues, a slow detour around the Herefordshire countryside and then more queues. I drove back two hours late – but Bedworth made it all worth it. What a delightful way to spend a weekend!
