PS I started a rumour about a mudgather on Sunday mroning on top of the tor, hoping someone will take on the organising bit? Last year it was Snuffy, Selchie & me (and Amber & the other Hawker & a lark - who we serenaded with 'The Lark in The Clear air' if I remember correctly - well it was early in the morning!!!!!!

Will the Mudgather on the Tor be a goer? I heard a suggestion it'd be before breakfast which is a challenge for me. Can Catters do chocolate before breakfast?

Hope all is well, positive thoughts {{{{Cats}}}}

Mudgather? Nay Lass, You'll find nought up there but rocks and sheep sh*t! There is a bog gather part way up, though. Would that do?

It looks like my annual (weather permitting) jaunt to the top, is going to get crowded and noisey this year. At least the noise might drown out the sound of my wheezy old lungs.

Count me in for the weekend - but out for anything on top of a Tor first thing in the morning. I'll send my proxies - Jack and Zak instead! Jack will do practically anything for chocolate - Zak musn't have it (being a canine it's poison to him).

Don't on any account - if you value your ears and sensibilities - let Jack sing. Lovely man, can turn his hand to most things - but definitely not a singer or a dancer.

See you there,

Polly

I'm not sure what time catters call early, but I think I was back on the campsite last year before they set out. It was too damn windy up by Widgery Cross to hang around too long.

Cats. On the way back down, I think I met part of your awning going the other way!!!

Seriously. If you're going to do the Tor walk, expect a round trip of about 2.5 - 3 miles and a rise of about 500ft from the ford in the stream (River Lyd) to the cross. It's worth the effort.

cheers

Cats, shame on you!!! I guess you can claim exemption this year because you've been ill - but i've never seen or heard any evidence of your going up to the top of the tor.

Now, the speciality cheese shop in the local town, or back home to feed the cats, or to the florists to buy flowers for the landlady. or back home to get the forgotten Bendigo, or get a spare tankard because Jacquie forgot to pack Brian's ... etc., etc. Yes, you've done all those. Admitted you don't need an excuse this year to get out of it - but you better have a good excuse next year!

What about the 'dog' show this year? Do Jack and Zak finally get to win the lookalike owner and dog class?

Polly, What was that about "get a spare tankard because Jacqui forgot to pack Brian's." I wish!! I was left to drink out of damp glasses all weekend!

Morty, I do early. Catters do before lunchtime. Jack and Zak were on the way back when I set out. Damn, does that man never sleep?

I could be doing the walk later this year, Jessie takes a while longer to wake up now. I wasn't expecting him to be up to it this year at all, but he still seems to be ready to take on the world, al be it at a slower pace than before.

Well someone has to provide all those things that everyone forgets ~ even if it means going back home for them! Now, last year we had to go home as so many people wanted to see the new [very old] house we had bought so we had to have the state visit!! We always go into Tavy to get flowers for the pub and it's a good excuse to visit the Cheese shop and the amazing amber stall in Tavy market! I have been up the Tor before but there's early and there's EARLY!!!!!

No, Jacqui, don't leave him behind - just tell HIM to bring all the things HE will need e.g. his tankard, the kettle to make you an early morning drink, the washing-up liquid and HIS rubber gloves to wash up after he's cooked for you and ... the children, plus the dog to accompany HIS walks .....

You just make sure you bring yourself and your lovely voice.

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!

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

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

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.

... 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.

Neither.

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.

Yep a great weekend, great singing, good friends and too much beer! (same as usual) not as much hedonism and debauchery as promised, but next year we'll really let our hair down for the 10th. The highlights for me were my 2 babes singing a song penned by my eldest, The top of the Tor sing - beer WAS consumed - was it heard in Lydford? The Passing helicopters gave us wide berth, so we guessed we were too loud for them! Barbara singing her American songs was great too. I really enjoyed the recording of the death toll in the songs, perhaps for next year, as it is the 10th we could count the number of times hanky panky occurs and/or quantity of beer consumed - all in song of course!
How about an apropriate song list for the tor walk - The Lark in the clear air has to be one.
Thanks one and all for a great time, good company and fantastic singing, lets do it all again next year.

Sussex Carole, I have searched through all my wild flower books and have been unable to identify that yellow flower you found, the pink ones with fern like leaves are Herb Robert, the other pink ones are Red Campion. The violet was the common Dog violet, but the smaller ones we saw earlier may have been sweet violet. The white flower is Greater Stitchwort. I think that was all the ones we were not sure about the names of!

As Vaughan managed to kill off the entire world twice, that may go some way to explaining how I feel today!!!

Correction to numbers that made it to the top:

Sixteen! Jessie and I were up there on the trailblazing run, and back on the campsite by 9.30 (just in time to miss the noise and the crowds). I was tempted to leave a few chocky bickies up there for you, but not wanting to cause an arguement, ate them myself (it was a pre-breakfast walk). Some of us got to the top last year too - despite the breeze.

A great weekend even though we were late on parade and I was sporting the tankard scar!

In total £329.90, but we have to take the expenses out of that, i.e flowers for the pub, printing etc, definitley in excess of £250, but how much more I don't know until the final bills come in, and they probably won't be in until the end of May. I'll let you know then.

I think Phot should have come and brought the kittens - would have gone well with the baby gerbils!!!

We have had some other suggestions for next year including the Ten Mini Tors... we make 10 small piles of stones around the campsite and people have to walk between them, camping overnight!!!!!

The Sunday nmorning walk and sing on the top of the Tors is already booked on the 'Programme', led by Snuffy. Thanks for this years walk Snuffy.. brilliant.

Thanks to Jacqui and Brian for driving on Saturday night and for all singers and non singers... and, most importantly, thanks to Dave and Frank at the pub, who actually want us back....

Thanks, Hawker. I didn't sing 'Oaks' or 'All Quiet' with you so we'd better have a rehearsal....

If all goes well next week, I might even drop in on my way back, beg a cup of tea and go to rehearsal from yours............

It's a pity I wasn't there, years ago I wrote a parody for a local singer who had a penchant for deaths in songs. I managed to dispense with 329,265 souls.

For all of you who were at the Fox and Hounds this year, I just thought you would like to know that the new Children's Hospice South West, who we collected for this year, has just been completed. It is now being equipped inside and will be taking its first children in April this year. Thanks to all of you who supported us.
