Never mind. Come to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Folk Weekend instead. Free camping. There's a pub over the road. Singarounds Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, and a concert with Steve Tilston Saturday evening. Bar by Great Heck Brewery.

Sutton upon Derwent near York, Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June.

Arrived back home safe & sound (& weary)last night. A big thank you to Geoff & Jane for organising a terriffic weekend, to Maddie for keeping the beer flowing and for being so helpful and kind to us when we arrived on Friday weary strangers in a strange land , well it is to us. We really enjoyed the whole thing, meeting old friends, and new. Great singing, playing, laughing, drinking and socialising. Also thanks to Foggers and Yorkshire Yankee among others for their kind words and finally a HUGE thank you to Mr Happy for making me laugh so much that it hurt with his unique rendition of the Ken Dodd song, "Happiness".
PS, had a great time in York too.
Jon & Fred

Many thanks to the Ducks (especially Maddie!) for another excellent gathering. I went up for the Saturday and had a great time; heard some brilliant songs & tunes, and met and/or saw again some lovely folks.

Good music, good people and (I assume, as I'm not a beer fan myself) good beer... what more could you wish for?

Ready for an early night after a superb weekend; many thanks to the duck tribe for making it all happen. Thanks to everyone who made it such a relaxed, inclusive and friendly gathering. It was great to meet peeps I've known by their Mudcat presence only, and other folks who ain't on here.

It's been brilliant.

WE had an excellent weekend. A good turnout of friendly and talented people.
When we departed at around six this evening, there were a handful remaining another night before moving on elsewhere.
Thanks to all who attended, even if it was only for a short while.
Quack!

Had a brilliant day on Saturday, thanks to the Ducks and all present. What a good song by a duckling and she serves a good pint as well. Thanks for making me feel comfortable.
Good musicians including violins, squeeze box, auto harp, bongos and even the banjos were great. Can't make Sunday, work to catch up on, see you all next year and some before I hope.

Will be great to sing with you again!

Geoff; definition of perfect pitch for a banjo is when you lob it into a skip without hitting the sides.

Jane; Dry field, moist pub = right way round.

Only one more sleep to go!

Probably right Gerry. Can always arrange to come and collect you before we start drinking and cabs are readily available later.
Chilli has been ordered and the pub will also do cooked breakfasts if there are enough takers.
