Thanks for doing this Tyke.

Don't worry Dave that has all been thought about - the pubs have all the legal bits that are necessary and PRS is sorted.

I've already got one order for a programme - I'm being sent a stamped addressed envelop to post it out.

Anyone who has seen the latest fRoots will have noticed that we are down as having the Peatbog Faeries on the guest list - this must have come from one of the very early press releases when we thought we had but sadly we haven't. We do have all the others mentioned.

Just a reminder - if you know of any traditional (as in the ones who sing the local songs) singers from the Holmfirth/Sheffield areas please get in touch so that they can be part of the Yorkshire Garland Group recording session that Ray Padgett is organising for the Old Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
This is a project established to collate, gather and preserve Yorkshire songs in up to date accessible formats including the internet. It's funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Nationwide Building Society and the Countryside Agency - not the usual supporters of folk music but welcome none the less.

Mick knows about the Garland but we do have other concerts for different areas projected ~ not too sure if he will contribute and I do already have DAT recordings but will not use without his permission

Wendy is already in the know and she is in Whitby too, and she has given info on Tommy Daniels, and Bill was as early as Mick H really

Elliots (D & D) not yet approached

What we are trying to do is record the earliest people first /traditional in this first tranch and then revival singers later and those still alive!!

Believe me we do have a great deal of material to collate etc but very interested in Sheff/Holmfirth first. Lots already recorded but need permission from all sorts of ppl, recording companies and collectors etc

A Holmfirth Folk type Festival in SHepley? whatever next? Seems to me like (assuming everything goes to plan) you lot might be busy agin next year. Leastways you don't seem to have pissed off most of the business folk yet - although if you did p++s off the miserable tw+t from Sids cafe who always winges about dancing in the church "yard" and assumes that the lay by is his private bus stop and ice cream stall, I would be thrilled.
Is real beer still on for the Picturedrome (as mentioned in a post a long long time ago)? T'would be really appreciated, as long as it's not going to be warm or thwaites or black sheep or ........

Am I getting paranoid or losing my marbles or what?
I can't believe that there has NOT been an almighty roar of complaint and dissent about the feature "Folk festival '07 set to move to Shepley" in Wed nights Huddersfield Examiner.

Wake up people! - This is an outright case of mischief and sabotage by a Mr John Taylor which is fully intended to plant misinformation and confusion in readers minds and harm this years Holmfirth Festival of Folk. A festival that many people on this thread have worked their socks off for many months now.

Please note! In this feature it says "The Holmfirth Folk Festival could be on the move...to Shepley!....The long-running festival is taking a break this year but is hoping to be back in 12 months time. Mr taylor said "They're not holding it this year while they reorganise themselves and then the plan is they will come to Shepley next year. They were finding it difficult to find suitable places to have as a campsite and for events because there weren't enough sites available"

For a start MANY readers reading this who are NOT aware of the change this year from Holmfirth Folk Festival to Holmfirth Festival of Folk will not make the connection and will naturally assume that
the whole event is off this year. They will tell other people and those people will tell other people and so on and so on and so forth.
Bad news always travels 10 times faster than good news so word spreads very quickly!

MANY readers will also have not bothered to read the whole article and will have missed the wee bit at the end that says "Volunteers in Holmfirth are holding a three-day folk extravaganza as a replacement next month while the original festival takes a year off."

This does not mention Holmfirth Festival of Folk, the dates of the Festival, just how big this years festival has become and how it compares just as equally with "the original festival". It also refers to a "folk extravaganza". This term has never been used in any P.R for this years festival and again is used to divert and distract and confuse the reader so they haven't a clue what is actually going on.

The reference to "volunteers in Holmfirth" is fully intended to downsize this years event in the mind of the reader and make it appear to be a small-fry event that will have no comparison at all to previous events.

I nearly rest my case, but if you can now see how this article could have caused severe damage to our cause it will have been worth the effort.
It's now DAMAGE LIMITATION TIME!!
Their broadside has caught us in the bows and it could sink us (but I doubt it)
But we do now need to repel this with P.R in The Huddersfield Examiner and all the local papers to put the story straight.
Cath, this is your mission,should you wish to accept it!

As a footnote: The Holmfirth Folk Festival is suggested to be held in Shepley next year ".... because there are plenty of fields away from the main centre of population....venues under consideration so far are two marquees in local fields...." (quotes from The same Hudds Examiner article).

What? Are they really serious? Can they really be serious?
They are having a laugh surely! I've just had a fit of laughing....sorry!
The Holmfirth Folk Festival in Shelley? The Shelley Folk Festival?
The Holmfirth and Shelley Folk Festival? ..and where the hell is shelley?

I think the festival is in your safe hands next year folks.
And long may you reign.

I couldn't agree more with you about the timing and intentions of the piece in the Examiner which is also going to be run in this week's Express I am told.

However all is not lost as the Examiner will be running a sizeable (I am promised) piece on Friday about the Jake Thackray Exerience which has been prepared for some time and will run a feature some time in the week running up to the festival.

The Express will run the usual detailed piece with associated advertising next Friday.

A few letters to the Examiner from people like you Soldier Boy wouldn't go amiss so that people can see that it isn't just the usual suspects involved in this.

Thanks again for all the support on this forum.

Well, that was a lovely piece of misdirection by the Hudds Examiner! Glad I wasn't the only one Who thought so Soldier boy. I tink Cath's right, we should let the paper know our views. It should be pointed out that a Shepley festival may or may not be a good idea, but that it would lose the character provided by Holmfirth, and apart from the campsite, would have very few facilities... proper comfortable venues, places to eat good food at reasonable prices, banking facilities, etc.

Well the Holmfirth Folk Festival had posted its intention to look for a Green Field site in 2007

Beverley Festival had ideas to go to the Racecourse I believe the year before they didnt have one

It is I feel an idea to make the Festival much bigger and move way from a Peoples Festival and away from Homfirth pubs

But is that what everyone else wants?

I dunno

And only today someone was looking on the web for details and found the "other" festival's web-site. Didn't notice the "2005" date, and was suitably confused. I guess you've thought of this, but is it possible to ask the "other" festival to put some sort of explanation and link to the 'ickle volunteer festival?

If only Hamish!
They have been resolutely telling people that there is no festival in Holmfirth in 2006, despite the fact that they knew that we were doing it.
What they mean is that 'they' aren't running one this year so therefore it doesn't count.
We made it clear from the start that we were only doing it because they weren't but it looks like they have come out into the open and shown that they had no intention of coming back to Holmfirth and what they want is a bigger festival.
Well good luck to them is all I can say - and to the people of Shepley because I don't think they have found the answer there.

On a previous subject of P.R and promotion for the HFofF (especially since HFFLtd are now mischievously misleading people into believing that there is NO Festival this year!!) where are all the posters promoting this years event?
I've seen very few on my travels, yet would have expected to have seen them all over the place:
e.g:pubs,clubs,hotels,entertainment venues,libraries,schools,
supermarkets and convenience stores,newsagents,chip shops,post offices,butchers,bakers and candlestick makers.....
Another good eye-catcher to make sure all the locals and passing traffic know about it is to put up those signs at the side of busy roads in and out of the area that carry the message on signs spread about 20 feet apart. E.G: "HOLMFIRTH" >> "FESTIVAL" >> "OF FOLK" >>
"5,6,7 MAY 2006". This will mean getting permission from The Council or Highways Dept or Police etc and having time for the application process so it may be too late now,or is it?
Most of the marketing I have seen (excluding features in the press) has been to see both sides of the HFofF Flyers blue-tacked to walls in pubs etc. This is definately better than nothing at all but they are very busy with information and do not stand out very well.
So, back to my earlier question; where are all the posters?
Were enough posters printed and if not, is it possible to get many more printed and distributed?
You are going to think I'm a right moaning minnie and I apologise. I know that a hell of a lot of work, by a valient few, has gone into making this festival happen.
If there are more posters and you want them distributed please let me know via a P.M and I will be happy to help out.
I just want this years Festival to be an outstanding success.
I also want to ensure that misleading propoganda put out by officiado saboteurs of HFFLtd is not allowed to succeed by keeping people away from the Festival because they have been wrongly led to believe that there is no Festival this year.
Every piece of promotion and marketing that lets people know what a great Festival has been put on for them this year is a pointed stick in the eyes of those who would rather see it fail, or preferably, not take place at all!

Well let's get back to Holmfirth 2006. I decided to have a birds eye View of Holmfirth last night. I flew over at about nine with the aid of Google Earth it looked to me like a great place to hold a festival. Lot's of Pub's, Restaurants, Shops, and Wine Bars a Market a Cinema a Swimming Pool. All that within a stones throw of some beautiful country walks. My thanks to the people of Holmfirth for letting us visit and keep Traditional Music Song and dance Alive in 2006. Oh did I mention two theatres, Fish and chips Shops and Café's, Curry Houses I could go on! Tour Bus Museums Art gallery, and an Ice Cream van. If I missed any thing out The Tourist Information can answer all your questions.

I have to say that we are valiantly trying to get posters out but it is right that we probably don't have enough - there is a subtle plot to photocopy some more. We ran out of flyers some time ago but there are 10,000 out there somewhere!

We have had lots in the local press and more is to come next week and the week after.

On a very positive note - Sheila, Carol and I went to the Open Mic session at th Sculpture Lounge last night where several of the festival performers were performing and it was an excellent night. James Cannon is brilliant, Ged Farricy was very good as was John Senior and the bit of Bay of Biscuits who was there was hilarious.
They meet every two weeks and I would recommend it highly!

Having just scanned through your material regarding the forthcoming festival and I must comment on the brillo idea to paste a PDF on the web for the programme - so much easier to read than the previous format.   Why wasn't this thought of before?

I wish you all well for the festival - ignoring some of the gitches experienced on the website or was it just poor communications between committee and website constructor - hope you get everything together in the future as you obviously know where you are going.
Rupert

The market Hall has dissabled toilets at Hollowgate level.There are no toilets at Huddersfield road level.The Corner House Cafe has a step up into the cafe and there is a dining area to the left with no steps. Its waiter service so one would not need to negotiate the steps..There are no dissabled toilets however there are some accross the road [10 meters]..The staff at the cafe will assist should the need arise.The White Hart 1st floor level access is from the rear of the pub on Daisy Lane, there is no toilets of any kind at this level but there is toilets downstairs but no dissabled toilets, should the need arise use the public ones opposite the cafe again 10 meters from the front of The White Hart...Carniceria has a 2 inch step and then its level all the way to the dissabled unisex toilet.The Nook has a 6 inch step to get in and two further steps of the same size to get to the toilets..there are no dissabled toilets.Le Caveuxe has a flight of steps to both levels from the road and no dissabled toilets.The Picturedrome has level access from the front, but now there is step to get into the seated area of about 3inch..there is a dissabled unisex toilet.The Old Bridge Hotel has two steps to get in at the front,however to the rear of the hotel there is another access point with no steps..There is no dissabled toilets..Herveys has level access and dissabled toilets...............For all our attention..The festival office will be able to assist and advise anyone that has a queerie of this nature..At the moment St.Johns will be providing first aid, however they do need a place at ground level that they can call theirs' for the weekend..I am hoping that KMC market poeple will let us use their office at the front at Huddersfield road side..But on the day the festival office will have a pointer by then [I hope]

I'm afraid it won't be going on the web site Tyke!

You have no idea what it has taken to get the timetable on in a format that is correct and readable and I daren't ask for any more changes now!!!

As Rupert noticed, the timetable is now on the web site as a PDF which should come out as an A4 so you can cross check what is on at any particular time.

I'm afraid the Elephant wasn't confirmed when I did it and there isn't room for another venue on the chart (and still fit on the page) so we will just have to make sure that people know through another source. And besides the Elephant is supposed to be an unofficial venue so it shouldn't be on should it?

I hope that all makes sense - I've had a busy day singing Sacred Harp music in Kegworth - wonderful stuff.
