Looking good at the Cricket club Sarah, hope the CD launch goes well

The short stagger from Cricket club to camp site was of course the start of the Wibberley Wobberly workshops, and start of the scars now adorning knees, back and head (no damage there then!)

if the moon shines bright then the path is well lit, if not take a flippin torch and a walking stick and stear clear of the heavy

Beware traffic wardens, they're targeting the festival. We just had our first parking ticket in twelve years when we popped into the Co-op for some milk. He'd nicked most cars in the row. They normally wait a few minutes for regulars, not this weekend obviously.

Mally, there is plenty of room for camping, the site at sands is huge. Not sure if you can pay the stewards when you get onto the campsite you will probably have to pop into the festival office in The Old Bridge Hotel and get your camping pass there before going on to the campsite.

Quite right Guest Banjiman, top festival indeed!

Everyone seemed to be having a great time and I am always amazed how much this festival attracts people from all over the place.
Once the rain stopped early saturday afternoom (thank goodness) folk seemed to be drawn to the town like a magnet and the whole place was buzzing and heaving with every street/venue/pub/hotel/eatery full to the rafters all day(and all night)long!

It felt like the whole world had turned out to enjoy the sun, the spectacle and fun and just come out to have a good time in Holmfirth.

This has to be good news for all ardent folk followers, the brilliant organisers and volunteers, local business and commerce and residents and visitors alike.

Just very nice to see so many happy faces turning out in their masses to make the most of this special event and spending freely at a time of national austerity. So it can't be all that bad can it?

Majic. Can't wait for the next festival in 2012!

Very well done to all the organising committee, stewards and volunteers. Job well done.

Many thanks

Chris

Had fun but it was very noisy where I went - which is OK I guess. Mostly the Nook and Elephant. But find a nice quiet Postcard early evening which was fun and enjoyed some tunes there.

The Cricket Club was pretty much a bona fide festival concert on saturday, and even though it was free, despite constant comings and goings the audience was enthusiastic and even, occasionally,attentive!
The Pilgrims Way did a fine extended set.
Sorry I didnt make your Elephant session George, but I was on around 10.30 and I couldnt come up with a good reason to be walking the streets of Holmfirth in 6" heels in a monsoon - so I stayed where I was.

No I didn't know that Tyke, very sorry to hear it but I suppose it comes to us all eventually.

It was difficult to find a good laid-back singaround this year.
I think it was because so many pubs were heaving to the rafters, especially when the rain drove everyone inside on Saturday night, and the additional Open Mic at the Elephant and Castle.

Still, everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves, locals and visitors alike, so it were a reight good do.

I did find a good singing session eventually however upstairs in the Cricket Club on Saturday night once the concerts had finished. It was very late at night till early morning (very near 'dawn chorus' time when I left!)but it was worth staying up in good company and the songs and backing of the exceptional 'Young 'Uns'. Brill!

Chris
