I spoke to Mike Raven last night - the Market Drayton festival will not happen this year, but he is putting on a one day festival at Loton Park on Sunday 6 October as Rob said.

The format will be workshops in the morning, concert in the afternoon and a dance with cabaret in the evening.

Guests include Mike Raven (naturally) with Joan Mills, Steve Tilston and John Neilson, Harvey Andrews, Taggart and Wright, Murphy's Marbles, Vital Spark West Gallery Choir, Kicking Alice. The band for the dance will be Skillet.

Loton Park is owned by Sir Michael Leighton who is a poet, so we can expect poetry to feature in this event, with Sir Michael himself and Gladys Mary Coles who is president of the Mary Webb society.
