skipy Bideford Festival bites the dust (23) RE: Bideford Festival bites the dust 29 Jun 11

One of the last things councils will ever admit is that Folk is good for the comunity & taking the piss out of morris men is almost a national sport. Shops etc. that profit form festivals will rather say they made a 1% margin out of the event than admit that they made a lot more so as not to give any back, they had to pay extra staff you know & then there is the extra electricity! Pubs have to put extra staff on, the fact that they where run ragged during the weekend only just made them break even (Yeh right!) Heard it all before - too many times! The only way fwd. is to be self sustaining during these hard times. For us the "hard times" seem to have been the last 25 years since we started!
