Thread Name: Knockholt September 2011
Subject: RE: Knockholt September 2011
Everything worked out absolutely excellent cost wise.
A excellent event and the weather was good. I think the event dates should not change?

Keeping this event to June and September is a must other months should be ruled out because of clashing with other events. It was great to see folk I have not seen for ages and good to see Newbies who have never been before and who voiced to me how they throughly enjoyed themselves and with out doubt will be coming again in June 2012.

This is a different event to Pigears and sweeps whereby time tables rule the event.
Knockholt is simple Its because of this very reason the communal side of Knockholt and the gathering of folk around a simple fire with no over amenities then two bogs and a Marquee for bad weather that make the event so unique.

I favor this event to all the others that I attend and that includes folk clubs sweep Pigears and pub gatherings. although I will continue to support my clubs and attend other events they do not = Knockholt. Those FOLK who missed the event through illness hopefully your make it next June.

For those who opposed the raised costs then you simply missed a great event.
Your cutting your noises off to save a few quid.
Well done to all singers players dancers and poets and readers.

A superb Knocholt well done everyone.
