I was a collecting steward for the firs time this year so got to see places outside the Middle Bar. Admittedly that was mostly the Anchor Garden (couldn't go TOO far away!) but I heard a lot of people I wouldn't normally have done. Loved Toothless Mary, and the Mumming afternoon was brilliant. I was impressed byt the fact that, when it started raining, the audience was enjoying it so much they just stayed where they were.

Middle Bar was good (the accoustics in there are brilliant) but it will never be the same for me as it was in the glory days in the real Middle Bar. I actually heard someone telling someone else that the "Top Bar singers" were in the Anchor.

The ASBO tent on the campsite was good in the evening too.

Pity about the rain...maybe better next year?

And I will try and make the whole week this time!

Love Lynne
