Subject: Holmfirth Festival of Folk 2006
From: Cath
Date: 15 Jan 06 - 11:08 AM

HOLMFIRTH FESTIVAL OF FOLK 2006: MAY 5th - 7th
                                                                                
THE SHOW GOES ON!

Now that the director of Holmfirth Folk Festival Ltd has confirmed publicly that there will be no Holmfirth Festival in 2006 some local people have decided otherwise!

A group of Holmfirth business people met last week with local folk music and dance enthusiasts, all of whom are experienced in organising and running events, and have confirmed that the show will go on. They want it to be known that, contrary to some of the rumours that abound, they are running a festival in 2006 because no one else is and for no other reason.

Landlady of The Nook, Sheila Sutton, daughter of former licensees David and Angela Roberts said, 'We were very concerned to learn from the newspaper that the festival wasn't going to happen in 2006 and that the organisers wanted to move it to a greenfield site for 2007. Obviously the loss of income is a consideration but my family have been involved in the festival every year since it started and it is an event that we enjoy greatly. The Nook has played an important role in the success of the festival and it would be a sad loss if it was to be moved out of town.'

The new organising team are not planning to imitate what has happened in previous years but hope that they will be able to provide enough attractions to appeal to visitors and the local community. Already booked for the Picturedrome are The Strawbs, John Martyn and The Peatbog Faeries (tbc), Ceilidhs are planned for Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, Morris Dance sides are booked, The Nook, The Postcard, The Old Bridge Hotel and Carniceria are all putting together a programme of music, children's entertainment is in hand, workshops have already been offered by musicians and arrangements for camping are well advanced.

The Holme Valley Business Association and 42 local businesses have pledged their support and sponsorship has been offered by The Music Room and Pertemps.

The organisers want to make this year's festival a truly community event and further offers of support and help would be much appreciated.

Contact can be made through holmfirthfolk@btinternet.com

As one of the local vicars said, "You can't have May in Holmfirth without having the Folk Festival - it wouldn't be the same! "

Thank God and well done to all involved in reviving the spirit of Folk Music song and dance, not to mention the community involvment in making this date a continuing one.

It does need events sometimes to be brought to a head before simple conclusions are reached

Thanks to one and all who have made their feelings known, and now is the time to rally round in the thankless task of supporting and organising events~ things do happen spontaneously but the frame work and timetable needs to be put in place.

Thanks Cath (see above re anyone wanting to help)

thanks cath - it's good to see something emerging from the mist over the pennine hills - after a couple of months of hearsay, whittering and speculation.

Just hope that people will support your efforts and make this festival a good one. There is no reason why festivals cant run with out all the usual predicatable trappings and plastic arm bands. You just need a willing bunch of folk (a few with talent) and some good space, in which to meet sing, play, dance and drink. Good ale helps and there is plenty in the town.

Fact that the picturedrome is fielding some big names should make it all the better, and draw others in.

I guess the big task now is to let everyone know it is now definitely on as this is one of the first of the season so the jungle drums wont be up to full speed.

What's with the "usual predictible trappings and plastic arm bands" Panurus? From a festival organiser's point of view, I wouldn't want to see all the hours and hours of prep be totally discounted and minimised!

Apart from that, it's great to hear that Holmfirth will be on this year - let's hope that the Folk Festival committee get the same financial and emotional support from the town in 2007!

Great to see local people take action to keep the Festival alive.

Let's hope the local council support them with some funding.

When Sidmouth reverted to being organised largely by local folk the council there disgracefully chopped their funding from around £60k per annum. to absolutely zero.

Lancaster faces an uncertain future too due to a lack of support from the local council.

Local folk deserve more support from local councillors.

I hope they'll get it in Holmfirth.

There will be news on the camping front very soon but if all goes to plan it will be in the site near the swimming baths with security staff and admission will be with some sort of permit yet to be sorted.

There will not be a weekend ticket - it's not going to be that kind of festival.

Concerts at the Picturedrome will have a ticket price just as all events there do throughout the year. The ceilidhs that are planned for Saturday night and Sunday afternoon will also have a small charge. Whether or not there will be a charge for any of the events in the pubs has yet to be decided - it will depend on whether and how much funding is available.

More news as it becomes available.

Sorry to be on a downer here, but I understood that one of the reasons the festival wasn't to take place this year was problems with camping sites and a lack of sufficient B&B accommodation. I know that I've had problems with both in the past here, it's also the (only) place where I've been given verbal abuse by locals for parking my car (legally and not in front of anyone's house - and on the first occasion where the owner of the B&B we were in told me to park it) in 20+ years of festival going. Somebody I know quoted "they want your money but they don't want you..." It certainly hasn't impressed itself as the most hospitable place on the planet with me. Sorry.

I love the way the local business people have rallied around to give help to the Festival once there was a threat it may not continue.

It was always the busiest and most lucrative weekend for the town. The Co-op took as much money over he Festival weekend as it did over any three days before Christmas. With the honourable exception of the Nook - most businesses could not have cared less when previous directors have suggested they support the festival. I am told it was hard to get them to even take an advert in the programme. One pub owner in the past discouraged pubs from contributing to the festival on the grounds that "poeple would turn up anyway".

However generally speaking the people tend to be friendly. But like most people in tourist towns - they can be a bit funny when it comes to tourists!!

I note that "Holme Valley Business Association and 42 local business have pledged their support". Wouldn't it be lovely to read "The Holme Valley Business Association who have finally after 27 years realised the value of the festival to the town have pledged each of their members will give £100.00 towards the running costs of the festival".

As I have said, The Nook is an honourable exception to this and I am glad Sheila is in the forefront of attempts to keep the festival going.

I'm sorry that 40DL has had problems but there is one particular B & B where I know the owner has caused problems to the neighbours by instructing his customers to park in spaces which are not actually his - I don't know which one you refer to but it might be this very one.
And yes there has been some animosity between the town and the festival organisers but there are historical reasons for that - lets hope this year can put those to rest. The difference is that this year those involved are local, know a lot of the locals and know a lot of the local issues.
As the person who dealt with the adverts in 2004 and 2005 I can't say I had difficulty in getting people to take them. The take up was only limited by the time I had available although, as always, there are a few who don't want to play but they are certainly the minority.

Phew. I was a bit worried about coming out with what I did in what was a first post on the site, I'm much heartened by the well thought out replies. Should I have expected anything else from the folk scene? My first Holmfirth was my first festival as a member of a dance side back in 1982 and it was brilliant. (too many) pints of Taylors pulled by David in the Nook, and we danced in front of the bottle gas store that, when filming required, was dressed up as "Sid's Cafe". For the last X years of course it has been "Sid's Cafe" full time - an admirable bit of business acumen, with it's associated bus tours of film locations - and we have danced outside under the glare of the owners/staff as people possibly blocking their trade. The atmosphere certainly did seem to change in line with the appearance of the tourist traps, and I think "Guest, New Mills" is quite right in their observation of attitudes prevalent in tourist towns, I grew up in one myself! There must be a significant number of Holmfirth residents who don't like the way that the town has developed in this direction. As Cath has said, hopefully this is the chance to look at all this afresh, and I wish them well. Not sure about Mr Happy's "villages with pubes", though.

Even if you are a bunch of grumpy old fat blokes that don't dance much anymore and prefer the drinking ( and hopefully a bit of singing )- don't despair! Have a word with Duggs and I think you will find that this years "Holmfirth Festival of Folk" will be a lot less formal on the dancing side of things.
There will be some set venues and times for dancing but the rest of the time you will be able to dance when you like and where you like and just enjoy the village and the occasion.
So long as you add to the colour and atmosphere of such an event I'm sure you will be very welcome.

just to correct a popular myth - i think you will find that the entertaining outfit that hail from bradford way(??) and have played at both the sair and the nook in the last couple of years are indeed Free Sandwiches and not 3 sandwiches. Think the mis naming started with a badly researched poster produced by the mostly pickled landlord at the Sair.

Last year the band at the nook played in the makeshift shelter in the yard leaving the space inside free for the usual gathering of players.

No doubt the new gang can clarify the arrangements for this year in due course but there will be space for all within the hostelry i am sure !

There are other pubs that will welcome pluckers, blowers and squeezers - even fiddlers over the weekend.

Quite correct Panurarse barnaclepuss (or whatever your strange 'handle'is) they are called "Free Sandwiches", not 3 sandwiches but this mis-naming occured at The Nook and not The Sair.
[so Ron, the Sairs'landlord, wasn't to blame on this occasion!]

They,and I'm sure, other entertainment booked by the Nook will play under what is now a permanently covered yard at the back of the pub.
This works well here and can hold a large number of people.

Like other regular folkies I hope that all the other rooms in The Nook will be undisturbed and left available for the usual brilliant musician and singaround sessions to play/sing their hearts out.

If this happens in 2006 and no amplified bands are booked to play inside the pub (this has happened before and it was disastrous to the wandering army of musicians looking for somewhere to settle down for the night) then The Nook will be THE place for all musicians and singers to gather and meet up over the weekend.

As someone who has propped up a cramped corner in the Nook during many many festivals - I wholeheartedly support not amplifying any music up in the Nook during the festival. The Nook is what the Lobster used to be for Redcar and the Tiger used to be during Beverley. Don't elbow the musicians out. No festival is complete unless there are loads of people wandering around with cases going between session and concert.

Congratulations to all concerned for getting this off the ground.

Some good artists - though personally I shall be looking forward to the sessions.

One small complaint - the cartoon on the front of the website. Long-haired guitar player with his finger in his ear. Longhaired mouth-organ player. Broken window/mirror which I fail to see the significance of. Two dogs drinking?

Seems to perpetuate stereotypes and male ones at that.

Surely it is possible to do better than that!!

Many festival goers are women.

Me for example.

Love Jane

I am a female folkie and I always sing with my finger in my ear.Incidentally, everyone has their fingers in their ears when I sing as well.
I always wear my hair long.
And there seems to be a profusion of cracked mirrors wherever I go.
I dont own two drinking dogs but I can eat two taties more than a pig.

seems it is a long story - and i dont know the details !

but basically it is an old cartoon drawn by a reknown artist and was based on sessions at the nook which has always been at the heart of the festival

so was probably drawn when men had long hair and women stayed at home and drank sherry at xmas

sure no offence intended towards female folkies or even elephants - all will be welcome

There is a private camp site on the same road anyone know of his attitude to the festival goers?

Now to reply to Ray's queries.
There will be singarounds somewhere but as yet the location isn't finalised.
The Bridge will be used but not on Saturday night as they went ahead and booked a private function some time ago when they were told the festival was off. But the function room can be used on Friday night and there will be some sort of singing session in the bar on Saturday night after food is sorted - about 9 pm.
Sessions are likely to be in the Nook as usual.
All the finer details are to be sorted but, don't worry, they will be posted as soon as we know.
The campsite further down towards Huddersfield is not very big and doesn't tend to have many tents I don't think but it could be worth asking as I don't think they are anti-folkies.
Things are coming together nicely so we will keep you posted so that as soon as we know - you will!

Ray didn't ask about licences but the venues have the appropriate licences as they already stage performances of live music. PRS has to be looked into.
Afraid the Peatbogs are not on - arrangements had been made with one of the group which were not approved by the agent so I'm told. Events in venues being sorted in a few days.

On the ticket front - most events will be free apart from those at the Picturedrome, Cragrats and the Saturday ceilidh - there will be no weekend tickets or day tickets.

I have just this morning suggested that a link for ticket sales would be helpful but in the meantime you could contact the Picturedrome web site on www.picturedrome.net

This must be a U.S.P ( unique selling point ) for this years Holmfirth Festival of Folk. Sell the issue of good full-lungs of Holmfirth air. No matter smokey pubs and venues, all comers to the festival will benefit greatly from the healing and heady air of the valley. My God it's the new Lourdes !!!
Bits of lungs can be coughed up but it won't matter because they will heal and repair.
I can feel a God thing coming on and am convinced this festival will be blessed above and beyond all others.

Why else we would find a new housing development at the end of the valley professing on the sign that 'Rural is the new urban'. I don't understand it either but the houses therein are commanding a price of somewhere near 1/2 million I think.
But don't worry you will be able to enjoy the festival for a mere fraction of that cost.

Yes Raggytash, the Free Sandwiches are the same band that turned up at the Sair on our folk day. You left a short while after they started playing so they are probably not your cup of tea.
They will no doubt be playing in the covered yard at the back of the Nook, so won't disturb the more sensitive and serious-minded folkie souls happily accomodated inside the Nook.
They are definately not your traditional "folk" band but they are wonderful fun and great to join in with and also dance to some of their zany, foot-stomping, east european melodies.
Folk festivals are about all sorts of traditions and influences and I personally very much welcome this great diversity and choice.

As promised here is the latest information.

The Campsite at Sands was confirmed yesterday and will cost £5.50 per person per night and prior booking is strongly recommended as there will be a limited number of spaces. There will be a small number of plots for caravans and camper vans. Booking is through the Holmfirth Information Office on 01484 222444.

Tickets are available now for the gigs at the Picturedrome.
The Strawbs (support John Senior) on Friday night for £12, John Martyn (support John Smith) on Saturday night at £22.50 - going fast! The Doonan Family Band (support James Cannon and Spotlight Kid) on Sunday night (price tbc) will close the weekend's festivities.
Contact 01484 689759 for tickets.

CragRats will be promoting two concerts over the festival weekend and tickets will be available from them on 01484 691323.
The events are Waking the Witch on Friday night and On Again, On Again, an evening of the songs of Jake Thackray on Saturday (subject to confirmation.)


All pub gigs, folk clubs, sessions and workshops will be free but please be prepared to put your hand in your pocket to add a contribution to the collection bucket towards the expenses of the artists who have generously offered their support and services for free!

big relief to get the site confirmed after so much speculation. with this in place and together with the ever expanding array of artists listed on the web site the holmfirth festival of folk should be a good un'

I was driving through Holmfirth and took a look at the camp site.

I will be honest - I wondered if the site was going to be secure.
Can I get some reassurance on that?

And how many places will there be? It looked like there was plenty of room to me - but it is hard to tell once cars and motorhomes and caravans are on the place.

It just seems odd to me that the original festival was called off this year partly because of inadequate camping/available B&B's in the town and here we are with the old Sands campsite back and available. All I can assume is that there are other, deeper issues here?

In reply to Guest and Neutral Observor - there is a footpath which skirts the edge of the football pitch at Sands and it is this pitch area which is where the camping will be.

As to the camping and B & B facilities now being adequate - just let us say that we are trying to cut our suit according to our cloth and planning a festival that the town and its facilities can accommodate rather than one that is too big and then complain that the town is too small!

If camping for tents is on the football pitch where will caravans and camper vans be accommodated???

Caravans and campers will be to the left as you go over the bridge as far as I know and vehicles will not be moving around on the site. If you see the earlier message from Holmfirther it says that cars will have to be unloaded and moved off the site. It might be a bit inconvient but as the space is limited it doesn't make sense for cars to take up space unnecessarily.

All I can say is that there is a considerable amount of interest and tickets are selling well. It isn't my gig but I do know how much the show costs and with the capacity of the Picturedrome (which is smaller than the Irish Centre as I remember it) then I don't think it's unreasonable.
But Alio and John Martyn Fan have two choices! There will be other things happening which won't cost a penny so there's no financial excuse for not coming.

Each to his own liking I think. Good luck to the John Martyn gig, I cant afford it and will probably be in the Bridge anyway for a good sing!

I visited 'The Sands' this am and found that the camping area used last ~ adjacent to the swimming pool has been flattened and has a football pitch in place.

There is also a basket ball area which is fenced in and a small kids play area.

Other than that little different to what we had traditionally come to expect

Hopefully ? cars/campers/caravans will be parked on the swimming pool area car park although there is a reasonable amount of room but had quite a few cars on this Sat at 1030am

Not sure where tents envisaged and where the fencing will go, but presume that areas around the football pitch will be utilised the river was quite 'busy' this am and no one wants anyone drowning

The area you are talking about, Ray, has been a football pitch as long as I have lived here which I won't divulge here! The basket ball and skate board area are relatively new.

The camping area is the other football pitch (as it was before I'm sure) which is over the bridge to the right of the area you are talking about, near the sandy parking area as distinct from the tarmac car park by the baths. It is the pitch that is nearer to Holmfirth and next to the Cricket Club.

Campers and caravans will be to the left of this pitch down the side of the river where the Caravan Club vans go now. The swimming pool car park would be pretty full at 10.30 on a Saturday morning as there would probably be a couple of football matches on but by May they should be all over.

Cars will be parked away from the camping area to ensure that all the space is used for tents rather than vehicles.

I do hope this has cleared matters up rather than caused more confusion - I'd draw a little picture if I could.

And if you were in Holmfirth, Ray, why didn't you call in for a coffee?

Hi Cath

Ok so area is not that closest to the swimming pool, but that over

the stone bridge and camping in the old area around the perimeter of

the Football pitch next to the cricket club/bowling green

No football matches on this Sat am that I could see

Made a special trip after my usual walk this am and before Sat snooker match scheduled for 11am in Barnsley!
So sorry I didnt have too much time ~ do I have your phone number or adddress?

Anyway cleared things up,I hope a bit!

The football field next to the swimming pool always seemed to be on a slope, maybe something to do with the beer!!

Yes you've got the right one but it's on the field as far as I know, not the perimeter.

I wish I'd known there was no football as I'd have taken the dog down! It's usually too crowded for us.

I've been thinking about the comments about ticket prices. I've added up the cost of individual tickets and if you go to every concert it still comes to less than most festivals charge for weekend tickets.

Raymond,
Christine & myself have been raising moneies for the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat for years, each year we have a session, put on a supper for donations, hold raffles, collections, turn people upside down and shake any loose chaneg out of their pockets, remove socks checking for pound coins secreted between toes, rifle money belt stitched in corsets etc etc
We have, over the years, with the able help of very generous friends raised over £5000. The Runswick Bay Boat is NOT sponsored by the RNLI who pulled out in 1977 saying Runswick could be covered by the Whitby lifeboat (Oh you there ! keep doing the doggy paddle, lifeboat will be here in about 1/2 hour)
Since 1980 the locals have kept their own inshore rescue boat, working in conjunction with the RNLI and HM Coastguard, we got involved in fundraising about 10 years ago and have been at it ever since, come and join uss on the 11th, I know your arms are short and pockets deep but we can help with that .... honest !

Can i just say to those of you out there that have been following this thread that I have had sight of the flyer for the festival and it really is looking swell. We should shortly have 7000 leaflets to shift, so if you are able to bung them out to poeple who haven't heard - pls let Cath or me know how we can get them to you.

Credit should go to all the gang that are sorting this out - they have managed to achieve most of this in less than 8 weeks - starting with a few bookings at the picturedrome we now have a wide ranging list of turns, ceidihs, dance sides, sessions, traders, schools workshops and showcases, campsite, major sponsors, and lots more besides - it really is fantastic.

Cath, especially, has done really well to co-ordinate a lot of this info - the web site gets better all the time and is looking really good now - the word is out there and more offers of help and performers still come in

In the words of young Mr Grace (from are you being served)

You're all doing really well !

It shows the folk community can really pull together and pull things out of the bag when they need too - pls be sure to tell your mates and make the festival a date

P.S Panarus B I can't make the Runswick Bay rescue boat do on Sat 11 March 2006 at Milnsbridge socialist club as I will be in a more northerly place with some good drinking fellows, which bye the way, includes your good self - Doh!
But the Runswick Bay do is an important gathering in the folk calendar for a wonderful set of true folkies. It is therefore essential to get the new Holmfirth Festival of Folk Flyers to this event so we can entice them to the Holmfirth do. So either leave a bundle at the Sair for Raggytash to pick up or pass a bundle to me and I will get them to Raggytash.
P.S Can I say hello to Muppet in despatches? - Hello Muppet !!

Glad to inform evryone that Tyke is now safety enscounced in the secure unit at St Luke's Hospital and after an initial contretemp is now being force fed his medication. This will ensure that he will be ready for supervised visits into the community, hopefully before the Runswick Bay do. Only one small cloud on the horizon, Tyke was MOST upset when we had to deny him the sheep (gold velvet collar no less) that Jones the Shepherd had sent him. He does get very emotional were sheep are concerned. Jones my old friend, please in the interests of Tykes health please do not send any more, you know how attached he gets to them. The one you sent is happily grazing on the hospital lawn, (out of sight of Tyke, we don't want him getting aroused)but we would be grateful if you would collect.

Cheers

Raggy

Soldier Boy I will gladly dish out fliers for the Holmfirth Festival of Folk (getting back to the trust of this thread) Can you drop them in at my house, I'm not likely to be up at the Sair before the 11th

Cath please don't get me wrong. I was not taking the p... out of Johnny Spitfire. I actually think he is a great guy and I love him to bits. I was not joking about awarding him his RAF wings. I did this last year in a sort of formal ceremony in the Nook and dozy rozy was a witness. I had some authentic 2nd World War RAF wing flashes/badges in my posession (don't ask me why). They meant a lot to me but I had no real use for them and decided that the Spitfire Pilot should be the deserved and proud owner. Now he has his wings he can fly the sky at will and long may he reign.

Hiya Cath
Good news. Just rung the TIC and got my name on the campervan list! So it looks like Sandy & I will be coming.
The TIC lady said she would ring back to confirm in the next few days - after her boss has got back from holiday.
BTW I couldn't get through via the email address given on the website (ie holmfirthtic@kirklees.gov.uk), as I got the message: mailbox unavailable [SMTP Error Code 550].
Have you yet decided whether any pubs other than the Nook (ie the Rose & Crown) will be hosting music sessions & singarounds?

Great stuff.
I've passed on your problem with the web site link to our computer boffin.
The Nook will be having sessions + the usual Free (or 3 depending on where you come from) Sandwiches.
There will be a Folk Club in the Old Bridge function room on Friday night and we thought that would be enough space for singers as people will still be arriving. Currently Singarounds are likely to be in Hervey's on Saturday afternoon and the Old Bridge Bar on Saturday after 9pm after the food is finished.
That's all we have pencilled in for now so please feel free to make your suggestions.
For the moment Hervey's is a likely spot for more singarounds. We are told by the landlord that the Elephant doesn't want anything programming in but we have been advised that they said that last year but welcomed those that went so enquiries will be made there.
We hope to use the upstairs room at the White Hart but I have still to go and talk to the new landlady. We want it for a performance of Jake Thackray songs on Saturday night and probably Silverwheel on Saturday afternoon. Whether we want to use it for informal singarounds I don't know?
The Postcard will have a band on Friday night and Saturday night but I am advised that it is not a good place for singarounds as it is smokey.
So that's where we are at the moment but please remember that some of this is still in the formative stages.

Just a quick up-date to say that Tyke is starting to respond to his medication and we've managed to get him out of the nice jacket (the one that fastens at the back)He is still concerned about the welfare of the sheep that Jones the Shepherd sent him, which still hasn't collected Jonsey boyo. All being well we may be able to get him off the high security ward before too long, but first we'll have to stop him setting of the fire alarms (twice today already)and then we'll be able to start his sheep aversion therapy Picture of sheep electric shock to genitals, works a treat in most cases. This is our third attempt with Tyke and we are concerned he might be starting to enjoy it. Anyway mustn't carry on too much, Patient confidentiality

Tyke Update

Sad to report the Electro-aversion therapy we prescibed for Tyke has has an unusual effective in as much as it seems he is being highly stimulated by it, he actually looks forward to the nurse (male) attached the electrotrodes to his genitals and flicking the switch. He still responds in a most positive maaner to images of sheep as well. This is not the outcome we anticipated so we are looking at other methods (castration is still an option) of curbing this peculararity. There is of course the option to let him move house to Marsden where such behaviour is commonplace.
We may be able to allow him to the Runswick Bay do but he will have to be accompanied by at least two male nurses (of considerable size) and strapped into a wheelchair, for his safety as well as that of the local Ovine population. Alcohol is not permitted so please if you attend the do, on no account try and slip Tyke a drink, it will only serve to delay his recovery.
Finally if anyone see's Jones the Shepherd could they please ask him firmly to collect his bloody sheep from the hospital grounds the lawns are damned near threadbare

We have made it clear all along that the reason we are doing this is because the other team decided not to for this year.
The reason for calling it the first was to make it clear that it was different from the other, not for any other reason - after all if we can't use the name or the logo it is the first of a new kind.
There is nothing at all sinister about it.

Am I to believe that a Douglas Bader inspired morris side is needed to re-enact the battle of Britian through the medium of country dance?
And may I suggest that someone has the job of designing a costume that the legs fall off at a key point in the dance, thereby ending it abruptly.
Sticking out scarves and squeaky voices would, of course, be madatory.

Can The Holmfirth festival of Folk Committee form a sub-group ( like the one dedicated to organising the dance sides ) to organise venues where informal/fringe singarounds and musicians sessions will be welcome.

You do't need too many - infact three good accomodating venues with the right sort of session rooms and ambient atmosphere will probably be enough. These nominated venues should be clearly known and recommended to festival goers before the festival.

This prevents the all too common scene at festivals where you see droves of minstrels and singers aimlessly wandering the streets looking for the seat of happening - where it's all going on.
But the trouble is there is often too much wandering and not enough happening. Like ships in the night passing each other and never meeting up at the port!

"The Nook" is the obvious main venue ( so long as there will be no amplified groups inside the pub itself!) and other nominated/recommended venues should also be willing to put their hands in their pockets and sponsor the Festival, in return for all the extra revenue they will make from the folkies coming through their doors and spending full sessions there.

I see from the Festival flyer that Ray Pagett, a regular contributor to this thread,is listed with all the artists. Does this mean that Ray is doing a solo spot in the programme or is he M.C'ing some Singarounds or both? Either way that's good news.

And finally, sorry to ramble on , but will some musician sessions and singarounds be organised on a formal basis and appear in some form of festival programe scheduled to occur at set venues and times ?

Because other events are listed in the flyer like folk Clubs and workshops etc I am presuming that there will be an official festival Programe. I don't think this has been mentioned before so can someone please confirm. Many thanks.

Right record putting time!

I understand that Sean Cannon is on at the Picturedrome on Friday, Iam not sure but I think tickets are £7.50 pp (check this out)St Pats night

Colcannon are a superb Australian band who toured last year, one of their musicians will be touring with Eric Bogle again this year, i believe


Projected is a recording session of Yorkshire Traditional song for The Yorkshire Garland db an initiative brought about by a small lottery grant (fuller information later) awarded to Steve Gardham, Mike Parsey and myself.

This to take place in The Old Bridge on Sat pm of the Festival between 1pm and 4pm ~ to date Frank Hinchliffe's son Roger and Gordon Hoyland (Sheffield) expected to be there and probably Ken Hinchliffe

An article to be put in the Holmfirth paper invites local Holmfirth trad singers to attend and maybe sing (free session for all interested parties)and also be recorded

The Friday night Folk Club is to be hosted by Barnsley Folk club regulars, such as dave Bottomley and John Platt and I hope to be there too (check out the H Fof F web site too)

I dont expect to be doing a solo spot except where I take my place as usual!!

Hello Wonder Woman here and most certainly not in LA - I have made it through snow, ice and gails to the furthest outpost of this realm.
Anyway Peter and Ray seem to have answered most of the issues over sessions and singarounds.
Every effort is being made to do just what Soldier Boy is asking but it might not be possible to have three entirely dedicated venues because there aren't that many that want to be involved that won't have something else programmed in. We are very conscious that we don't want to have every hour of the day filled in every pub to the exclusion of informal, spontaneous events.
The Nook will be a session pub most of the time, Hervey's will be available for Singarounds we hope for at least some of the time. We are led to believe that the Elephant was welcoming to folkies last time despite saying that they don't want to be officially involved and they will be sounded out again shortly. The White Hart is up for concert spots and may be available for informal things downstairs. The Postcard has acts on Friday and Saturday evening and things are still in the planning stage for Saturday afternoon.
The Victoria along the valley a bit is up for grabs as they welcome anything all weekend. Anyone willing to take on sessions of something there is welcome.
As Peter says the programme should be available for Easter, all being well so bear with us please.

Taking you to concerts and now allowing you access to a PC, isn't it difficult to type with that special jacket on, what with it fastening at the back and all that, or are you dictating so the nice nurses type for you. You really shouldn't excite yourself by going on about sheep you know, the nurses said that you weren't responding to the ECT

You take care of yourself old boy, the nurse's really do know what they're doing and with a little help from yourself will get you back to your old beligerent self

That Tyke is a very naughty boy, he is giving my staff a considerable amount of problems, he is not responding to treatment, he gets VERY excited when he has his ECT, in fact he gets VERY excited before he has it. In 35 years of nursing I cannot recall a more difficult patient, he is rude, he TOUCHES my nurses in a most inappropriate manner and asks them to make bleating noises. We have taken him out to concerts and allowed him use of a PC under supervision, when not under supervision we caught him looking at www.swedishsheepinnursesuniforms.com and other such sites. He may not be allowed to use the PC if this behaviour continues and we may have up the voltage.

People were asking about sessions and pub stuff some time back before all this sillyness about sheep and damsels started so here's the latest plans.

There'll be the usual sessions at the Nook all over the weekend augmented on Saturday night when Free Sandwiches will be playing outside. It is likely that young, local group Off the Rails will also be there at some point.

There'll be a Folk Club on Friday and Saturday's special afternoon recording session of local traditional songs and singers at the Bridge overseen by Ray Padgett and friends from Barnsley Folk Club. On Saturday evening Dave Cowan will be leading the singing in the bar once everybody has been fed - starting about 9.00.

The excellent upstairs room at the White Hart will be the location for an afternoon of music from three Sheffield acts - Silverwheel, Paul Pearson and Treebeard on Saturday. On Saturday night we will celebrate the songs of Jake Thackray with the Jake Thackray Experience, a very talented group of singers coming from all corners of the country to entertain us.

The Postcard will have 'turns' on Friday night (Spotlight Kid), Saturday afternoon (Crinkly Sox - who might let you join in as well) and Bay of Biscuits on Saturday night. If there are people who want to have an Irish session the space will be there on Sunday afternoon.

Hervey's Bar is available all weekend for anyone who wants to go for a sing. Mostly it will be informal but Dave Cowan will be in charge on Saturday afternoon.

The Elephant and Castle is also available all weekend for anyone who wants to go to sing or play will be made welcome This might be just the place for George to take up residence when he's not busy doing something else as he tested them out last year.

The Victoria, a little further out of town towards Holmbridge, is also keen to be involved and would welcome anyone who wants to go there.

You certainly can.
It's the Yorkshire Garland Group who have been established to collate, gather and preserve Yorkshire song in a number of up to date accessible formats including the internet - I quote from the information that Ray has given me.
Typical traditional singers who represent the style are/were Arthur Howard, Will Noble and John Cocking and Frank Hinchliffe and his son Roger.
Singers from the Sheffield area have already been invited and singers who have anything to offer or who would like to take part or be in the audience should me on holmfirthfolk@btinternet.com or contact Ray Padgett, who is co-ordinating for the Yorkshire Garland group on 01226 284927.
Hope that helps.

A Saturday Night Whitby Endeavour type sessions in the Elephant sound like a great idea to me. We had a lot of fun in there the year before last. I blame Raggyarse, Dave O Dee Day, Dozy Derrick and a few more miscreants. I do remember the regulars in the Elephant who kept insisting on buying rounds of drinks for the Musicians. However my memory is a bit hazy I can't remember if we went on strike to stop Raggyarse singing the Flower of Scotland or to get someone to buy a round of drinks so that we would let him sing it. So put the word out and lets try and recreate the atmosphere. Anyone else's is up for the Elephant Saturday night? I get Ken Stocks down there and Marie Blackburn.

I have noticed that on your website you have a picture that shows the Doonans, however I am slightly puzzled as to why John is included in the group as to the best of my knowledge he is no longer alive. If I am correct and he is singing with the Celestial Seraphic Choir couldn't someone provide a more recent picture? Oh but what a coup, if another picture is to be believed that you have all five Strawbs - yes, all five singers I've counted them - they all appear in a picture on your website or is this another heavenly oversight.

By the way I really do think you should be congratulated for this new venture. I wish you well.

As Tyke has added a link to the holmfirthfestivaloffolk web site we really must get the stuff on the web site corrected!
Believe me we are doing our best but something keeps getting in the way which I can't go into here for fear of prosecution.
Never fear, the programme should have started to roll at the printers today and will be out for sale on Friday this week so we will have the definitive information in there.
So don't get too excited about the Holmfirth Coral Society - you won't be expected to go deep sea diving for coral.
And don't expect any of the turns to be performing in the pubs from 8pm - 12pm because they won't be, more likely 9pm - 10.30 in the Nook/Carniceria and 8.30pm - 10.00pm in the other pub venues.
And expect to be charged for the Saturday night ceilidh with the Red Parrots because it isn't free.
And make sure you get your tea because Sheila won't be serving free sandwiches at the Nook on Saturday night - but Free Sandwiches will be playing there!

I would like to support what Uncle Bulgaria said from a day or so ago.

I don't want to do the school marm bit but it is proving a bit frustrating to get accurate information out through the web site and a bit soul destroying when we hear from people as close as Meltham and Honley that there is no festival this year.

Press releases have gone to all the local press and media, posters are going up and 10000 flyers have gone somewhere! There's even a big banner over the Hospice shop in the middle of Holmfirth

Please do all you can to pass the word as far as possible. Tell them there are still camping places available, the weather is on order, the programme is out on Friday and there's loads of stuff to do that will only cost you your beer money and a contribution in the collection bucket.

If anyone out there would like to help a bit more than just turning up please drop me an email to holmfirthfolk@btinternet.com

It's a poor and declining thread when people have nothing to say and gust keep adding banalities or mono-trash to continually "refresh".
If you've nothing to contribute that makes sense and adds value to the forum shut up and let it fall off the page with some dignity and respect!

Thank you Soldier Boy - just what I wanted to say but daren't!!

Anyway the programme is now collected and available from tomorrow at the Tourist Information Office and the various festival venues and sponsors around the town.
If perchance Sheila hasn't managed to get them to all the sellers when you rush in to buy one your best bet is The Nook/Carniceria.
If anyone tells you they aren't there tell them Cath says they are - 7 boxes were offloaded there at 5.30 Thursday afternoon.

I don't want to be a party pooper but I'm going to see if I can start a new thread so that people who want information or to offer help or throw money our way don't have to trawl through quite such a huge list of messages.
I'm going to try and do the blue clicky link thing but, bearing in mind that I'm still new at this game, I might do it wrong.

Good on ya Cath. What Cath really means (but is too polite to say!) is so that people.....don't have to trawl through such a huge amount of c**p to find the bare bones and get all the facts.
This thread has lost its thread so many times there is no thread and it's now threadbare....so it's time for a new thread.
