Only two months now until the second Moira Furnace festival. Last year's was absolutely brilliant and I know word has spread so hopefully we will have more people and an even better festival.

If you haven't bought your tickets or volunteered to steward, now is the time to do it. http://www.moirafurnacefolkfestival.co.uk/

So...who's going?

Love Lynne

Lots of people we know are coming but most of them are not mudcatters. We've been passing round publicity at folk clubs, 'What's the Point' gigs and the few festivals we have managed to get to so far this year. Suspect ticket sales will be up on last year. Looking forward to playing again.

I believe we've already sold more tickets than we did last year. We now just have to make sure it stays at a nice size and doesn't get too big.

Brenda, sorry I haven't replied to your message yet...I'm told train to Burton and then bus is a good way to get there. Does the bus pass cover trains? I had to ask cos, to be honest, public transport round here stinks so I don't tend to use it.

In case anyone is interested, I spotted a rather nice cottage on the edge of fields in Netherseal (Coupla miles from Moira) doing B&B for anyone that way inclined.

We will be in Burton U Trent dropping off the step son after 4/5 days/nights in Castlerigg Hall Caravan park. Need to find an interim campsite with laundry facilities for Thursday 19 August near Burton or Moira.


Hi Lynne.... we may actually get to meet face to face.

decided to book online via paypal. just easier. looking at interim campsite for Thursday night. Looks like it will be Utoxeter racecourse caravan site.

Why am I looking more forward to Moira than Sidmouth? I will be newbie to both. Think it is because I fear Sidders is too big. Too much to do and I will be disappointed i missed something in favour of something else.

Gosh! You don't look at a thread for a few days and suddenly everyone's posting to it!

Virginia, if you contact the campsite stewards, you could probably camp on Thursday night, though it looks as though you won't want to do that now. We get to meet face to face twice then, cos I shall be at Sidmouth too. I'll be in the Middle Bar, so let me know who you are.

Oh Jillie I'm soooo glad you're coming! You should be able to get tickets on the gate no problem, though booking on-line is easy now we have Paypal.

Tim...I wondered where you'd got to!

Mike Gibson (Cllr) will sing the introductory song from the top of the furnace at 4.00 after which there will be a singaround in the Loft. Then there's heaps on Friday evening: ceilidh, concerts, singarounds and sessions.....should (we hope) be whatever you want to do!)

Yes, there will be sessions in both pubs from Friday evening (I hope..the woodman managed to book a band on the Friday evening last year, unfortunately) and, hopefully, the whole time the pubs are open. I need people to drop in to both pubs and "Stoke the fire" cos the times they are used are too long to have people running them all the time. Besides, I want people to be able to do what they want and I don't want them to get too formal. The only danger of not having leaders is that people will call in, find nothing going on and go away again, so anyone who can and is willing, please go in and make sure things are happening. Two of a Hind, I'm told, on very good authority, that you are good at this sort of thing so it would be great if you could help me. Loosely speaking, I'd like tunes in the Railway and a mixture in the Woodman, but that's not a firm thing.

Love Lynne

I didn't recognise any of the guest list, can someone tell us more about them.
E.g. are they singer-songwriters, traditional singers, or what. Are there any tunes sessions?

Mind you, I don't want to miss any of Whitby, so I wont be going.
Enjoy yourselves, if you are.

This is a something for everyone at a very good price festival. Booked artists include singer/songwriters, traditional singers,a large vocal group, ceilidh bands, folk rock bands, comedy singers and solo artists. Apologies if I've left any style out. There are song sessions on site and tune and song sessions in the village pubs,Ceilidhs on Friday and Saturday night, Morris Dancers, and a Civil War Re-enactment display. There is definitely something for everyone. Some of the acts listed have websites so you can find out more about them online.

Does anyone know when the Festival Campsite opens on the Friday?
(I know people can stay over til Monday morning, which is good news.)

I shall be running Herbaceous Border at Moira this year, so do come along and do some border morris (even if you've never danced before). I've got lots of sticks people can borrow and plenty of spare jackets too - but if you want to play you'll need your own instrument!

I didn't go last year - but it sounds great.

There will be someone manning the campsite from Thursday so you should be ok any time Friday. I will find out this evening when it officially opens and post back.

Also checking out local B&Bs. And don't forget that there is a super new youth hostel just up the road at Conkers.

We still need more stewards and I need a few musicians prepared to commit themselves to starting tune sessions in one of the pubs as well as ones to pop in and play to keep things going

It's all looking good and I'm really beginning to look forward to it

Chris you should be ok buying short-notice tickets. I don't think we're going to sell out in advance! And you would be a great asset to the Shanty session. (And to the whole festival of course)

John that would be great. If I check out when Herbaceous is programmed, can I put you in to get a session going?

Thanks Olga, I think the committee is working on that premise! Don;t know if you're on the actual stewards' list or not.
