I've seen the video before - don't know who the man is who's laughing, but obviously he's some kind of sadist. Case for the NSPCC there I feel!

Many of the evaluations indicate how strongly people feel about the quality of the singing and singarounds at Saddleworth - several have told me that they are some of the best in the country. Maybe they equal those at Cleethorpes Geoff T?

Right back in the early days of the Festival, I wanted it to be a "singing" festival, so enlisted the help of many friends - including Mo and Joe, Geoff Turner etc. - but I'd also like to mention (and thank) the Shellbacks for their contribution to making this happen. It's so sad that they've finished now - or will have at the end of Hull weekend - so thanks very much to all of you! I hope you come back next year anyway and carry on the singing!!
