OK, it's official insofar as we've got our airline tickets (we still need to get our passports!) My dad's cousin Bill and his wife are bringing Reynaud and me to Middlewich!

We're looking forward to meeting some English mudcats, and catching up with those we've already met on this side of the pond!

Hi all
camping = £5 / night the site has showers and toilets and we will be running a shuttle bus at a small charge to take people to the festival venues. Yes you do need to book in advance.
Daystar are doing 4 performances two on Saturday and two on Sunday
yes the Horse boating demo will be back, definitly on Sunday and hopefully on Saturday as well.
Horseboating dem o for those who want to know involves tacking up the horse in preparation for pulling an unpowered narrowboat in this case its usually the tar boat Gifford, which is usually based at the Boat Museum. On the Monday after the festival the horse will be pulling Gifford along the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union canal to Nantwich.

Sorry its a long winded reply but for some reason i can't get on the Mucat site during the day

There is, of course, nowt wrong with Bedford (or Luton for that matter).

When I was a young youth I had many happy holidays down south (based in Welwyn Garden City, actually) and well remember spending hours watching the gliders on Dunstable Downs.

Of course, in those days, all this was fields....

We're aiming to get there by that method Paul, quite looking forward to Heartbreak Hill, we haven't done it for a few years. Quite a doddle really after the likes of Hatton!

We've never made Middlewich Festival, so are really looking forward to getting to a festival by water. The last one we nearly almost made by boat was Wheaton Aston, which we didn't realise existed, & we arrived on Sunday night as everyone was going home!

Andy mac said: "For those not in the know (Martin from Barton!), Middlewich is a delightful small town in Cheshire about 25 miles south of Manchester and the same distance north of Stoke-on-Trent. It's a doddle to find Jcn 18 of the M6 and turn left."

But by far the best way to get there is straight up the Trent and Mersey, through Harecastle, and down Heartbreak Hill.

Hi Martin
Yes there's camping and a shuttle bus runs from the campsite to the main events field, this being a central point for the whole town, which is just taken over by the festival. Alternativley if you have a boat you can get to us by canal and moor up in the town for the weekend and really be part of the festival.
Luton?? Bedford?? are they down south

Thanks very much chaps. Is there camping? There are many Bartons. The one I speak of is Barton Le Clay in Beds. Sandwiched between two delightful Towns, one goes by the name of Luton and the other Bedford. Have you heard of either?

What would Middlewich be without the traditional friday night with the Middlewich Paddies and the Family Mahone?
So as usual the British legion will be packed to the rafters on Friday night.

From what Josher says this year looks as good as last. I came to Middlewich for the first time last year and have to say it is one of the best festivals on the circuit. I'll definately be back.

For those not in the know (Martin from Barton!), Middlewich is a delightful small town in Cheshire about 25 miles south of Manchester and the same distance north of Stoke-on-Trent. It's a doddle to find Jcn 18 of the M6 and turn left.

There are numerous sessions and singarounds both those organised by the festival and those that seem to spring up everywhere on an ad hoc basis.

Where is Barton by the way? Never heard of it!

Andy, Gloucester.
