Good luck with the festival. I've never been able to get there but have heard loads of good things about it.

We were performing at the festival and what a great time we had. This was our third year there and the weather was the best we have known, as Scott the organiser said what a way to celebrate the festivals 10th anniversary. Even got to see Show of Hands and as usual meet lots of nice people, seemed to be a lot from Derbyshire there this year, we felt at home!

I got my CD, a grat mix of artists.

I put this on the beeb board but it is probably off being moderated somewhere.

I had a great time

The Lifeboat fundraising Concert was brilliant, I saw you for the first time Tom on Friday in the Anglia Court. Great songs very clever, I loved the Branscombe Bay one, I am taking my own bike round the TT course in July.

The rest of the Festival was superb to, highlights were The Spikedrivers and Lark rise and a stonking set from Tanglefoot, and of course the best ever F on the P weather of all the times I have been.

Due to unfortunate circumstances I missed Truckstop Honeymoon, please someone who went tell us how Mike and Katie were and did they go down ok?.
