Probably a silly question from a Newbie to F&H, but is there a kitchen in the bunkhouse that one can make a cuppa in come morning? And if so, can one put milk in a fridge?

Coffee is Vital first thing, especially if there's a trot up the Tor in the offing :-)

It will be really good to see you there, Scooby! Yes, the pub does really excellent food, everything from a bacon roll to haute cuisine. Dave, who used to be the chef, now manages the pub and is keeping up the good food tradition. And if all else fails, I'm sure we can find you something in our camper... and that brings us straight back to hedonism and debauchery!!!!!!!!!

Neither. We charge you £5 for entry for the whole weekend[accommodation on top to the pub] to cover the costs and what is left, along with what goes in the glass when Jon and I sing on Saturday night goes to the childrens hospice. In the course of the evening we will sing and pass a glass around, sking you to put in the price of what you are drinking or whatever you want, and that's what goes to the kids.

... I didn't mention it earlier because it's not something we shout about, it's just something we do, but amongst all this frivolity and 'not what people would wish from small festivals', we have managed to: keep one of the Dartmoor Rescue Landrovers on the road for a year, brought a little girl over from Chernobyl for a life saving holiday, helped raise the money for a teenage boy with severe cerebral palsy go on a sail training ship, helped send a profoundly deaf girl on a cycle ride across Peru, contributed to the work of Rapid UK by raising money for the toys which they pad their boxes with for the children in the areas they send their rescue teams to, helped equip a classroom in a school in Angola, adopted two rescued donkeys and this year we are going to try and raise some money to donate to the building of a second Children's Hospice for the South West [the present one helps 200 children a year and there are about 600 more on their waiting list...] Even more reason why you should come.

Hi Guest,
Yes Jon and I do 'organise' the Fox and Hounds. As others have said before me it is a very small weekend when people gather at a very small pub on Dartmoor, which loves having us there, to sing, relax, and generally have a good time. There is no pressure on anyone to do anything, there are no guests, no performances. There are people who come hundreds of miles to this because it is something which grew from a need ~ somewhere to go purely to relax and sing. If people didn't want this then they wouldn't come. They do, so there must be a need for weekends like this. What it is not is a festival. We book the pub, tell them we are coming, let people know they are very welcome to come and if they turn up we have a weekend and if they don't..... well, we've never had a year yet when there wasn't anyone there. Why don't you come and see for yourself. You ~ and everyone else ~ are Very Welcome.

Guest. I'm not sure what you believe the F&H weekend to be. If you are suggesting that this is a closed shop restricted to the small number of people who have posted here, then you are mistaken. If it was, then it would not be advertised on a public forum.

It is, as has already been said, a weekend of singing, and as such welcomes people interested in singing. The fact that there has been some banter here amoung F&H regulars does not detract from the standard of the singing, and good singing does not stop people from enjoying themselves.

Festival? I think you were the first person on this thread to use the word. However, it does go on my list of festivals every year, and has done since it started at it's old venue someteen years ago. I wouldn't keep driving 200+ miles for a weekend that wasn't worthwhile.

Polly, there are rumours and there are RUMOURS!! That was well below the belt!!!

cheers

Brian

Happy May 1st Guest, congratulations for noticing that some people have posted more than once and that yes, Cats is the organiser. If you read the first post, by Cats, the organiser, you will see that it is not so much a Festival as a weekend of song. To me festival conjures up a weekend of music song and dance with other stuff thrown in for good measure. A weekend of song is errrr..... A weekend of singing. If you want to morris dance all weekend or play the banjo till you are blue in the face, then this may not be your kind of weekend, but it is fun, friendly, a superb venue in the heart of Dartmoor, and I have in the past been witness to some fine singarounds and singers at Fox & Hounds, coupled with the great company I have always met with, I think the description does not breach the trade descriptions act and I'll be there.
And as a small observation , several of the people who posted here also posted to the Miskin thread and were there - an 'award' winning festival - 'nuff said

For those of you getting a bit worried about all this, it isn't really that bad. We do have some exceptional singing along the way, the landlord loves having us there and the beer and food are excellent. The pub is on the edge of Dartmoor and is only a few minutes off the main A30. The pub has its own campsite as well as a bunkhouse and hotel rooms. Next year will be the 10th birthday and they put it in the diary last year!
See you all there
