Does anyone know if it is possible to do the fringe only again this year and who we need to contact to arrange camping?

In previous years there has been limited availability of camping places for those doing "fringe only". However, looking at this years online booking form here, the implication is that that is not possible this year (though I may be reading it wrongly). Maybe a phone call to the Festival Office might clear up the situation. The office has now moved to Derbyshire as anounced in the following from the Website.


...................................................................................................................................
Beverley Folk Festival has been making a world of difference for 21 years and will continue to do so in 2005. Chris Wade (founder member) has now formed a partnership with the team that brought you Sidmouth International Festival.

This year's Festival runs from 17 -19 June 2005 and promises to be a great weekend full of concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, children's events and lots more all set in the beautiful Yorkshire market town of Beverley.

Welcome to a new look Beverley Folk Festival, we just know you are going to enjoy it!
Chris Wade & Steve Heap, Festival Directors

Unfortunately, Beverley clashes with the A1 Festival this year, so the chances of there being any Old Time music at the fringe are much much lower. I'll be at the A1 as are many of my OT mates.

The address you gave is Mrs Casey's (Steve Heap)I believe he is now involved in the running of this festival having given up on Sidmouth.

The fringe things at Sidmouth were never "programmed" when Mrs Casey was running it but maybe there is a different policy at Beverley.

Good luck

I got my booking form today and it definitely states that camping is for Weekend Ticket Holders only.

Shame, I really enjoyed the last two years and even with fringe campers there seemed to be plenty of room last year.

They do, however, offer free tickets to stewards for 12 hours work.

My booking info arrived just after I started this thread and it does seem to suggest that they will not allow the camping only that has happened for the last couple of years. Unfortunately to buy weekend tickets would cost us £180 which bearing in mind that having children means you are often excluded from many events seems way over the top. Its also not really practical to steward with kids either. Looks like we may be joining you at Sacrewell then Ray.

There's no mention of the Fringe at all in this year's flyer. There is a public campsite just south of Beverley.

quack here

It's only about 1 mile south of Beverley, on a bus route (service 121 every hour). As Linda says Oombanjo is the chap to ask. Perhaps other Beverley people will post here with any other ideas for cheap accommodation.

I had a fringe before my hair fell out. Played Beverley's fringe festival last year. Appeared at the Oddfellows pub. Chris and Helen have left the pub now so it might not be a music venue anymore.
Also joined in at Nellies and the Sun. Sam Smiths have 'buggered up' Nellies as a venue now. I'm sure Beverley will survive.

It seems the festival organisers have allowed commercial greed to over-rule a festival for the people (Folk Festival). The works at the leisure centre only affect the old car park, the field is not affected in any way, but it seems you can only camp if you buy a full weekend season ticket, which does not guarantee access to all events in any case and disenfrachises those who prefer the Fringe (real festival) to the organised commercial festival. I hope the festival is a financial flop this year so the organisers realise that the festival is for all the people, not for the affluent few.

Has anyone had the opportunity to ask questions of the people running it this year, who is Steve Heap, how come he is involved, if he is good it maybe beneficial to the festival and Beverley as a whole. What has happened to Chris Wade of Adastra is she still involved? I do hope it is not going to be commercialised without a thought for the fringe which has been very successful in the past. Any info anyone?

I spoke to Oombanjo yesterday and he assures me that arrangements for fringe only camping remain as in the last few years. However, there is a general reduction in camping space due to the building work for the new swimming pool, so get your places booked early to avoid disappointment.

I spoke to John (Oombanjo)last night and can confirm what Roger has said. The camping arrangements are in his hands and he will definitely make some spaces available for non - ticket holders. He should be back on line soon.In the meantime, a call to the festival office is probably the best bet, as Roger and Straw legend suggest.

I've just had a reply from someone called Scott at Festival Office stating that there is no camping available, at this time, for people taking part in the fringe.

Can someone please clarify the situation??

The situation is that Scott doesn't know what he is talking about. Oombanjo works for the East riding Council who own the site - he prepares it for use by the FF. If he says there is fringe camping, then there is fringe camping.

Won't see Oombanjo until Sunday at earliest so can't comment on that. He did tell me last Sunday that he didn't anticipate there being any problems with the reduced space because of the old timey people going to the "A1"? festival rather than Beverley this year.

So, I wouldn't worry too much about losing your space if you can't get it booked immediately.

Well Im back on line,I'v had to have the, not so old thing gutted and rebuilt. I got a phone call from the new organizers yesterday and was asked if I could go to a meeting on thursday 24th, however at the last meeting (the one where Chris introduced the new team) It was agreed that there would be a reduction in the number of fringe places this year as a result of the stored soil on the field. What was agreed was that any fringe tenting would be on the mound at the side of Hodgsons and any caravans would be in front of Hodgsons I requested 18/20 spaces hopefully this should be enough as most of the old timeys will be at the A1. I will confirm after the meeting tomorrow.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it the fringe that kept Beverley going a couple of years back? The same is now happening at Sidmouth in that the fringe is happening, along with concerts too. I just hope that Sidmouth doesn't forget in a couple of years time the same as Beverley seems to have. I really enjoyed Beverley last year by the way, as a ticket holder to boot, but I think festivals should remember that the fringe is an intrinsic part of it. I didn't go to every concert, and indulged in the fringe on a few occasions. Lay on enough camping for all, and of course charge for it, that way everybody is happy and all will promote the festival.

Is there still any chance of an old-timey session Oombanjo? This has been the highlight of the last 2 years for me, but with Nellie's out of the picture and most people at the A1 it's not looking very hopeful. Also the ticket prices seem very high (can't remember what they were last year), I know people who might be put off by this as they spend at least half their time on the fringe so don't do all the concerts.

John B, you are quite correct, in fact there was no commercial festival a couple of years ago, only the 'Peoples Voice' festival which was all fringe, I enjoyed that year emensly. All things considered I don't think i'll bother with Beverley this year, check the link at the bottom of the page, Priddy looks "Priddy Good" to me later in the year.

I wont jump in the deep end on some of the comments above. On the positive side, the number of fringe spaces has been reduced this year only if the soil from the building of the new pool(the area of a football field)can not be removed in time to re-turf the area,The meeting set for today was postponed as the new team were snowed in. A new meeting will be set, I will keep you updated.The opening friday night sesh will be the same in hodgsons ,the sun is still onboard foresters and the beck area are back on, the tiger and odfellows have yet to be approached, monks walk is on. Up to now the only change on the fringe is nellies who have said that, as long as the music is not organised it can happen BUT only on the folk weekend( not for me. humpfrey can ... ....... !!!!! If there is a call to carry on with the old time sesh this year I will find a venue, It could be Hodgsons in the afternoons, with Les and Mags doing the evening to late sesh. As to the price of camping on the fringe, it is not yet set but will be around the same as last year 6 or 7 pound/ night, and to big mal, the fringe is PVF. Dont jump ship yet mate. Cheers Oombanjo.

Bums on seats festival then . Concerts with tickets make money. The audiance clap brill. More bums on seats more money. Shame they dont sing or play to contribute as those on the Fringe do.   Shame The Fringe seem to be fitted in . In my view the fringe make a festival worth going to. However they dont fill the coffers with dosh,but they are just what agood festival needs. AND THEY SHOULD BE THERE.

If Steve Heap is involved nothing is for free. Business-like and professional but only if it has profit.

Chris Wade always had a professional aproach but I remember her in the White Horse Ceilidh band and impromptu French dancing in concerts - in short - a participant.

I ebnloyed Beverley festivals but I may not return, distance is a factor but I like my Folk - folk - not entertainment.

Its Tuesday pm I have another meeting set for Thursday re the removal of the soil. I should be able to give you an update Thursday pm.
However, irrespective of whether the soil is removed or not there will still be places for the fringe as this concession was given by the council after PVF. What we have to decide, with the interest of both the fringe and the festival is how many places. See earlier thread re placement of tents and vans.

I just has a feeling in me water that you're about to go the same way as Broadstairs - no fringe, no camping without a season ticket, no campsites nearby, guaranteeing a monopoly for the organisers...just has a familiar sound to it. Don't participate, just pay up and keep quiet.
Don't let the buggers get away with your festival brethren.

The fishing lake south of Beverley has camping spaces and cabins to rent. Its about 20 minutes walk from the Foresters, 40 from the festival site and the Sun. But there are two taxi companies in Beverley and it would only be a couple of minutes by taxi. Think its called 'minster lakes' or something like that.
