What a weekend, I only intended staying there the Friday night, but didn't leave till 5PM on sunday!!! arrived about 8PM fri, traffic on motorway terrible, find site, and wander around, one medieval tented encampment, one farmhouse and converted outbuildings (bar, toilets,basic chairs and tables), and a 'normal' type campsite. The bar/long room has sixty od people in it, and I find someone carrying a guitar, a girl with an accordian, and a banjo player, and Ms Lemon.
The noise level was high, chatter and laughter, the instruments almost made it, I tried a couple of loud ones... v.difficult crowd...the noise level went down just a tinge when we did a spot. We were only sitting around a table at the bar end of the room, and soon decided to sing to ourselves... after a few drinks we finally tried 'Wild Rover'.... amazing.. they joined in up to 2 tables away!!

Finished the evening chatting with Ms Lemon,and a couple of renactor types, decided that it had been wise of me to put the tent up when I arrived... well, at least I could stay to see the battle!
Next day spent the morning chasing up the people I'd met the night before, walking around the encampmemt (battle wasn't until 3)asking questions, looking at equipment, watching horse display, archery and so on. Well, watched the battle re-enactment... they were going for it! Beautiful hot sun too!
some heavy action and odd moments... two groups locke in bitter hand-to-hand, well, long pole with pointy steel thing against other pointy steel things..... then someone drops his sword. and 'enemy' guy , stops, picks it up, and hands it back,,, fight resumes!!

As they come off the field of battle, I wander around asking more questions about their armour, why they do it, how they got started,where are they from..etc... talked to pikemen, mounted horse, armoured swordsmwn, archers... even the 'wimmen' left back in camp.

Find two other people idley visiting, they were WW2 renactors , talk of machinery and bang-sticks and stuff, and decide to stay over another night and see it all again.
That night in the long bar it is 'after WW2 war film night', so basically there were 'yanks' , a guy in white dinner jacket and flippers. 15 'vietcong', an arab terrorist , Cpl. Klinger resplendent in white feather boa, helmet and rifle, several female 'mash' doctors and nurses, and even I took part, wore my black USArmy trousers & flying boots(normal attire), a USArmy camo shirt and bean-can hat, (stuff I had in my boot!).. everyone thought I had come as Castro!!! -lots of drinking, there was a blues band playing, talking about battle earlier, some people had played 'too hard', mistakes made..etc. Go back to someones tent for a cuppa tea with a german paratrooper his mate , and a mash doctor and a bottle of schnapps....... about 3AM I am wandering back thru the medieval camp, odd fires, lamps and things burning,no people.... very errie.... and I hear a girl singing...folk songs!!!!....... track her down to the last group of tents, and find four people around a fire. ask if they mind me joining them, and me and the singer try to remember the words to songs!! Around dawn we break up...

Up with the lark at 11, it had been chucking it down for at least 3 hours, really heavy, didn't rain for the rest of the day.. watched the battle again, talked to other renactors some more, swapped names, contacts, bought a nice lidded pewter tankard... and finally went home!!
So, you didn't miss anything !!!

It's not Sealed Knot. Mostly every other group tho. And Devilstick Peat.

I agree it would be an absolutely great place to have a folk festival and I know the owners of the farm, who are also the organisers of this event, are up for it.

It is also great fun, the beer is good, the facilities basic but excellent and the battle, the stalls and the general ambiance is wonderful.
Hopefully a crowd of musicians getting together to sing and play on the friday evening will add to the atmosphere.
There was a little talk at one time that this place might be a good venue for a new folk festival.
Any one interested?

Sorry we can't attend, but just out of nosiness, is this a Sealed Knot event?
We attended a local Sealed Knot event in the summer and found it fascinating. We commented at the time that a folk session would not go amiss at these events.
Missing your lemonade already - wish the weather was as hot as when we were sipping them at Sidmouth

Tee hee!

The sesh will be in the cowshed/bar. It's a converted farm with most of its features still intact. Loads of food, beer and authentic clothing! IT IS AN INFORMAL SESSION/SINGAROUND honest!

Spread the word, I'm hoping some of the Boat Band will be coming.
Tim, phone the telephone number on their web site and ask about your caravan. I think it'll be ok, but I'm not the land owner/organiser. (x)

One day, after many years of succesive battles, there will only be the folk singers left, to sing about the battle, those who died, the widows left behind and the horrors of war.

Will it be obvious where to go for music once we arrive onsite?

"tell the gate keepers that you're musical entertainers" - it is still an informal sessions/singaround isn't it?!

I worry too much...

Just a little reminder...

Friday 22nd Sept, Near Market Drayton - 7.30-8.00ish? Blore Heath is about 3 miles north of Market Drayton on the A53, the Loggerheads Road. Try this if it works in your browser

http://www.bloreheath.org/reenactment.php

How much does it cost to get in?
Adults: £6.00; Children (6-16): £3.00. (children aged 5 and under free). Price includes entry fee and parking. If you tell the gate keepers that you're musical entertainers for the Friday evening and ask them about camping for the wkend.

Mention the lemonade lady has organised the musical entertainment for the Friday evening, that should be ok. It's just a session, I'm trying to introduce some interesting folkie thing to the re-enactment world.

Looking forward to seeing you.

No just soak up what the others are wearing. Actually there are stalls at this event selling wonderful re-enactment stuff. The battle is brilliant with cannon and horses and blood, sometimes real blood! Fashion shows for the ladies and fighting for the chaps. Sexist? Moi?

Loads of camping Mr Happy. And it's not at all expensive. An amazing w/e, honestly..Devil stick Pete, Battle horses and wonderful trade stalls and brilliant costumes. All very authentic.

Strawhead are too expensive and there isn't much money to be spent. Thanks Louisey we will value your imput. Sussex Carole you are a gem. We could book this venue and have a really good folk fest sometime. Actually, if I was lucky enough to Fast my Hand to anyone, I'd like it to be in Blore Heath. Trouble is no one will have me :(
