Getting in to Shrewsbury shouldn't be too much of a problem but getting out will be a nightmare on the by pass. It's the Onslow Park Steam Gala on the Sunday and BH Monday, one of the biggest in Britain. The by pass is always chocka after that, so with the folk traffic as well...

No I'm sorry but we didn't give anyone a lift that weekend. Would've if anyone had asked, but your benefactor remains anonymous.

I'm sure that any camperperson would have done the same.
Following on from Bridgnorth, we've just had a great weekend at Faversham hop festival, and that's it for the season for us. So it's time to regress to normaility until next year.

The Old Rope String Band tribute was amazing. The standing ovation at the end to someone who was only there in spirit was very moving - and a big boo to the four people in front of us who didn't stand up. I was also pleased to hear that they are starting a four piece group next year - the New Rope String Band perhaps?

Superb weekend. Sorry to have missed the Old Rope String Band tribute but just had to go on the last steam train to Kidderminster.

Great to have the winners of the "open mike" sessions open the Sunday evening concert in the school hall. Shows what undiscovered talent is out there. I hope they keep this one in for next year.

Everything seemed to go smoothly (apart from the slight hickup of the non existent water in the ladies showers on Friday morning) Campsite facilities excellent (One up on Towersey eh!!)

Stewards and organisers all deserve a pat on the back and whoever does the workshops - full marks for the "heartstart" one. Very informative and one of us just may save a life one day. O K, so it's not folk but folkies get heart attacks too!   

Looking forward already to Shrewsbury next year.

Well, just bac from my first Bridgnorth experience.

It was fantastic, just sorry that I didn't find it sooner. Will definitely be at Shrewsbury next year in the hope that the same friendly, easy-going people will all be there.

Have to pick out the music/song sessions run by Ian at the Hollyhead. These sessions were just so good; Ian was in control but in a real easy-going way. Eveyone got a chance and everyone got the same level of praise and encouragement (cunningly disguised as verbal abuse!!).

There were lots of instruments (I counted 11 different machines on one song - including oboe, tuba, guitar, citterne (I think), mandolin, flute,etc etc.....

But solo unaccompanied singers still got their fair share of floor time. It was brilliant.

So were the Shanty/Wilsons sessions, Show of Hands and Colvin-Quarmby. Where do you stop.

A brilliant festival.

Thank you.

Pusskat not well so two full tickets wasted. However plan 300 mile day trip for sessions and the last Steam Folk Train on Saturday, cant miss that. Shame to miss The Old Rope String Band though. 8.00 Marquee Saturday. Joe Scurfield was the life leading the band .Pete,Tim and Joe`s sweetheart Rianne will do a fitting tribute with a little humour as well ,but such a sad loss of talent.

Mrs Lemon is expecting to be there, not sure if for the whole weekend but I suspect that is the case. If you want a bit of sport just ask her about the songs wot they write about her lemonade (there are several - the brew is so famous).

There is a designated area for disabled campers - ask at the gate, it is just downhill of the gate - less walking to the bus & school buildings.

AFAIK the station bar don't welcome singers. The first year I was there we had the Thursday bash, and the regulars didn't like it. And it has never been back. But if you are walking, the trot to the Castle is not that much further anyway.

I have always opted for the ceilidh on the Saturday but the "Folk Rattle and Roll" is always oversubscribed on two venues and sold-out completely by 6pm. A definate DRAW. But then so is the way Alan and Sandra run the festival. They are folkies first and business people second.

Maybe, in the fullness of time, they will have a river-boat shuffle, not sure how big the boats are that high up the river Severn.

If memory serves me right, there is a festival bus that goes into town every 20 minutes or so during the day and evening. (If it doesn't serve me correctly then last year I got on a local service without paying).

The bus timetable is usually in the programme. Hope it is still running as it IS a long walk up that hill. Lots of venues at the school though, so even if you don't make it into town there will be more than enough to keep you busy the whole weekend.

Check out the "open mike/showcase". If the tent is still in the same place you can listen to plenty of new talent while you're waiting for the bus.

No - I'm far from perfect and Yes - I did have my tongue in my cheek when I made the comments about "rotten" singers.

What I should have said is how wonderful it is to have so many fine singers and musicians occupy the steam train and how sad it is that my own singing voice is so rotten that I have to stay in the station bar drinking their fine range of ales.

Sorry if I offended anyone. I actually think the steam train full of singers and musicians is one of the things that marks Bridgnorth out as a Festival - it's not something you find at many (any?) other Festivals.

I like Bridgnorth. I like the Festival. I like the town. I like the steam railway. I especially like the railway station bar.

The Festival may move to Shrewsbury and I hope it retains its very friendly and relaxed atmosphere but personally I'll be sorry to leave Bridgnorth and the preserved railway behind.

Looking forward to the weekend and I'll happily buy Kampervan, Guest Ian and RWJ a pint on the platform.

I agree with Guest Ian, although we might hope that Mr McFall had his tongue in his cheek when he made those comments.

Anyone who has the guts to stand up and sing or otherwise perform deserves a little respect.

I'd rather have a night of mixed quality live music than listen to a pair of speakers.

If you don't like the performer who's on then just wait a couple of minutes and there might be someone you like.

Looking forward to a great weekend.

The campsite is on school playing fields. Washing and showers etc at the school.

Some events are in the town - long walk with steep hills up and down to get there, but much (most?) of it takes place in the school or large marquees on the playing fields

Sorry to hear that it is the last on the current site. I, too, liked the steam train - I always went all the way you know! To Kidderminster, that is. Book tickets early - missed out last year as left it too late.

Excellent fish n chips just down the road from the pub in Kidderminster.

Back in Bridgnorth, take the cliff railway from High Town to Low town just for the Hell of it. Or you CAN, if you want, do all the steps. On second thoughts do the steps down and take the railway back up - much more sensible.

Particularly looking forward to meeting Nicole and John (Cloudstreet) again.

Where do I find the frying person? And is the lady with the brilliant lemonade stand going to be there?

I've persuaded Sue's brother and his wife to attend for the first time, so it had better be a good one - last time I spoke to them they still hadn't sorted out the camping, 'cos they didn't realise it wasn't included like Beverley.

Like Elfcall I'll miss the steam railway at Bridgnorth.

I always liked the 'Folk Special' steam train. You could sit in the station bar and wave as the train drew out taking with it all the rotten singers and musicians who you were glad to see shunted down the line for the night while you got happily sozzled on decent beer.

Bridgnorth has been a damn good festival in recent years but I can't help thinking the attractive town and specialities like the steam railway helped make it what it is.

There must be a risk that the special atmosphere will be lost in the move to Shrewsbury though I suppose the same rotten singers and musicians can still be loaded onto a punt and rowed down the river for the night.

THE venue is the Castle near the er um castle. If you drive up the side of the hill it is the first pub on the left.

English sessions till you get fed up and then they might play Horses Brawle (In the key of GG) - English for 400 years. Thursday bash in the Castle is the only one that works. Be there or be - er - ...

I will be escorting a little old lady Thurs night - be prepared - she is no shrinking violet.

I am sure other venues have sessions - like the Shakespear but Thurs I know of no other. The grapevine may tell different but look in the Castle first.

Punky - you can always find somewhere to park O.K. without paying a wicked fee.

I just drove into the front of the school grounds last year and parked on the grass like many others. Nobody charged me. Nobody towed my car away.

Unlike at Sidmouth the local populace don't seem so determined to bleed visitors dry at Bridgnorth.

I'll be there and am looking forward to it, I've been going to Bridgnorth since 2000 ( I think?) and have loved every one.

The campsite is on the school playing fields so it's lovely and flat, and well equipped, there will be sessions near the food stalls 'after hours' each night, and in addition to the session room on the school site, there are a couple of pubs that have sessions over the weekend (unfortunately I forget their names, but I know how to get to them!)

The move to Shrewsbury for next year looks particularly exciting, as most of the people I meet up with at Bridgnorth are from Shrewsbury (including Dan the fiddler discussed here (message 8/8 @08:48) ) and it has a number of session-friendly pubs (including the New Year's Day session at the Loggerheads)

Look forward to seeing you all there in a week's time (oooohhh! Only a week to go!)

Vince
