GUEST,SteveG Hull Shanty Festival 23rd 24th July 2011 (126* d) RE: Hull Shanty Festival 23rd 24th July 2011 15 Jul 11

Re camping and accommodation. The town docks around which the festival centres are right in the middle of a large city. There are no schools with field space or suitable open spaces to hold organised camping with facilities.

However for future events we could look at, with the council on board, other possibilities. For instance there is a huge tract of waste land that used to be St Andrew's Dock, which might be used. This would involve campers having a pleasant stroll into town along Riverside Quay passing the ships in Albert & Wm Wright Dock, no further than the walk from Whitby camp site into Whitby.
St Andrew's Quay has several eateries and all the council would need to put up is some security, bogs and mobile washroom.

Hope the festival goes well and that the weather stays fine. I will be there in spirit.

If anyone asks why the Humber Keels aren't there, rather strangely they're holding their own event at South Ferriby Sluice the same weekend. Hmmm. Some joined-up thinking needed here.
