Seaking Towersey 05 - Thoughts Of A First Timer (48) RE: Towersey 05 - Thoughts Of A First Timer 30 Aug 05


Just got home. Overall a very enjoyable weekend but one or two 'niggles' with the organisation.

Arrived early Thursday afternoon and told by the stewards that campsite 3 arrangements were different this year so couldn't park the caravan in our usual spot up the left edge of campsite 3. Parked other side of fence in campsite 2 - only to see caravans being parked in the space we hadn'd been allowed to use 30 mins earlier !!

Agree with comments about showers, have never understood why they can't provide 24 hr facilities on campsite 2. Totally inadequate arrangements now for a five day festival, especially with so many extra people on the campsites. And it was hot !!!

The sound for the Kate Rusby Arena concert was probably the worst I have ever heard at any outside gig anywhere. (Good in the concert tent though, especially for Show of Hands). I suspect it was the equipment rather than the sound guys, it even looked inadequate.

Everywhere seemed to be running out of some beers (and 'Old Rosie') by Sunday night. Do the refreshment providers not look at the weather forecast or know how many tickets are sold in advance ?

Probably small glitches in an otherwise impressively run and overall good value event.

Now I'm off for a bath......
