it was indeed a fabulous weekend. Too many highlights to single out. Great to see old and new faces.

Just got back in after post folk fest wind-down. Beer, sausage sarnies, cakes, tea, coffee and chit-chat.

Thanks to all concerned: artists, organisers, stewards, MCs and everyone.

Special thanks to Jamie and Glenn at the Red Lion (le Rouge Kitty) for providing a great venue, green room, tea and coffee and lotsa Black Sheep.

See y'all next year

Gerry :-)

PS. Hipflask Andy, write that song!

Mrs. Duck,
Gonna bring your autoharp in the soft case? If so, come and make yourself known at the Rose & Crown at about 1400 hrs, I'm playing there with my two good buddies, Tony Martin & Tony Aked for the afternoon session.
I'm bringing my Keith Young autoharp and you may like to take a look at it, and a play on it of course.
Best Regards,

Well done to those who have sorted out an alternative campsite on the west side of town and running water etc. Stalwarts one and all!
The festival Office told me that this campsite is roughly the same distance from town as the one previously used on the east side of town and of course regular shuttle mini-buses will run between the campsite and the festival office. Good stuff. Well done folks!

Selby - it's about 15 minutes walk into town, but there are 2 minibuses running from Friday which go on late. They drop off at the festival office.

Not sure what time they are running until, but full details will be in the office on Friday.

The town is small - takes me 'bout fifteen mins to walk from one edge of fest to t'other - so once you're in the middle of it - it's just minutes in any direction to it all.
I allus park in the backstreets on the outskirts - walk in.

and some of those "P" signs are a bit cofusing on the map. The one at the bottom of Ash Grove has space for two cars and the jolly golfers might not be too keen on a load of folkies descending on their space.

Latest news on campsite - water and lavatories now arranged.

Snozz has created this improved map for Flash Company, for which thanks, Snozz.

The previous map had developed a spurious arrow thanks to Google, which you should ignore : more haste less speed.

Parking is ok in Otley - There are 8 carparks, most of which are free. Be careful if you park on a street though - check for parking restrictions - there are usually traffic wardens in town. Use the map link from a couple of posts up to view where the car parks are.

Congrats indeed!

Please could folks spread the word to as many others (as many other forums etc) as poss - that'd help combat any 'it's off' vibe that may have filtered out.
I'm just about to put it on TalkAwhile, Longdogs, a myspace bulletin (which will only hit my signed up 'friends' - there are others out there with similar but diverse lists) and our own band's email list (once again - I know there are others out there with their own) - please spread the word.

The arrow in the original map was an artifact that only appeared when the link was followed.

I've done another map showing campsite location and festival office.

Festival Campsite

I was told by one of the organisers last night that there *should* be water available - Yorkshire Water are trying to sort out a tap from the mains. I'll post confirmation of this if I get an update.

There will be the usual shuttle buses to town all weekend.

AFAIK the new campsite (field) will take tents, campers and caravans. We were looking for a site that would take everybody rather than have to have split sites.

Hopefully Yorkshire Water might come to the rescue re. running water.

If I get any more news I'll post up here

To: Guest Wheatman, I was wondering about that, because I used to live very close to the new site, and the area is on a hill on the north side of the town opposite Otley Chevin. I would guess that it is part of the Grammar School, in which case there will be levelled off areas.However, I do not know if they will be available for motor-caravans and caravans etc. Hopefully the website will give out more details SOON.

A new campsite has been arranged.

It is on the other side of Otley from the usual campsite, on the river side of the A660 between Otley and the A65 junction. Here is a map http://tinyurl.com/3d45s9

The site will not have running water, so please bring plenty of drinking water and containers.
