This is from Simon Care over on the BBC board a short while ago...

Hi,
I have just been talking to Jo Heatley, one of the organisers of Folk on the Water, at Saul Canal Festival.
She has just informed me that the entire event has been cancelled this weekend.
This is due to most of the site being underwater.
The entire bill is being transferred to 2008.
Check their website for more details.

Cheers

Simon Care

Just checked the website, those photographs are devestating, lets all hope they can pull through this <<<<

Here's the thread concerned.

Bugger, again. I could walk to that festival. Red wellies since you ask. I was all set to man the Glosfolk stall. Still I have enough on my plate inventing a suitable barrage to deflect water and then another to tank the front door on Joy's farmhouse. This was unprecedented in it's severity. But the warning is there. It ain't gonna get better. Festival organisers need to look to their sites and plan.

More global temperature means more evaoration and there is a lot of surface area of water to evaporate. Where does it go? And how long can it stay there? Who'd a thought it would try to fall in big dollops in localised areas? East Europeans - maybe. Residents of Lewes, Boscastle, Lynton and Lynmouth - what was it that history was saying?

Oh.

Yes, I remember arriving in Lynton & Lynmouth on what so happened to be the 25th anniversary of that disastrous flood.
The weather on that day seemed determined to stage a repetition.
I bought a nice yellow anorak.
I know about Boscastle but what happened in Lewes?
(Shame about Saul festival though).

Flooded Harvey's Brewery?
Good grief, that was disaster on a grand scale.

Yes but they only lost the finished batch on the ground floor.

They were back in business fairly quickly and the batch in progress (on upper floors) was later bottled and sold in bottles as a commemorative ale.

Can't remember what they called it (I had several and it was quite potent.

One of Sheffield's finest boozers (apart from me that is) - the Kelham Island Tavern - has had its cellar flooded. Fortunately they managed to rescue some beer first.

Might have been Carole.

I know it had a very tasty but very strong (in ABV terms) and wasn't around for long as only the one batch was made.

I'm not sure what difference 'Guest' or 'Consistent Name' makes to the point of this thread. It was merely to inform as many people as possible about Saul, in case they had made arrangements etc.

I apologise Joe, if this caused problems.

Having nothing better to do at the moment (how sad), I've got the MH show streaming.
Really informative to hear him announcing the Saul line-up for this weekend.
Smoothops have really got their fingers on the pulse, haven't they?
Two days after they zapped the link on the F&A website to the sad news that Saul was drowned off, they have failed make this small but vital amendment to a pre-recorded programme.
Be it on their own heads if peeps turn up anyway . . .

The organisers of the Two Rivers FF are offering a weekend wristband to refugees from Saul at a £10 discout - £25 instead of £35.

A phone number & contact name is on the web page.

Looks like a good weekend :)
