Assuming we can find the office, OK.

What mudcatters are coming? We know who we will likely see at Whitby, but not who comes to Fylde. We will be in Mudcat tee shirts most of the time.

Penny Dreadful office is in the Marine Hall foyer, to your right while you are collecting your tickets. You will also want to meet Alan - he's a prolific songwriter, and some of his stuff is in the DT. I'll make a point of introducing you.

Thank you, Stu. I've known Bread and Fishes from Jacqui and Bridie in the early 1970s. I did not realize the others were his. We will look for you - you will be in the office most of the time? And I'll tell Dick about the ale. I'm one of those silly people who doesn't like alcohol.

I'll be there Saturday Afternoon till Sunday afternoon I hope. I may be staying with Dick and Sue if they are in the two roomed tent (long story!) - If not I will be kipping in the car or on a sofa and will have a spare camping permit! Should know by next week.

Wouldn't dream of missing it. One of my favourite festivals - a long drive it may be for me, but always worth the trip. See you there
