Thread Name: Hull Shanty Festival 2012
Subject: RE: Hull Shanty Festival 2012
I was at one of the meetings with Pete H when Brady promised to back the Shanty festival and was talking in glowing terms of increasing the budget and how it would be great to get back to something like the original format. All of the other council people there were nodding and giving approval to all this and our suggestions re inviting some of the boats back and even providing something towards the boat expenses. What a shambles! All of this should have been done and dusted 8 months ago. Needless to say I'm withdrawing my offer of help and sticking with Mick and Pete.

However, I don't see why we shouldn't still run a low budget local event in the Maritime Museum and Ferens Art gallery like last year, with the help of Yorkshire Garland.
