Hi Yvonne, I've just checked the Banbury 'Ride a Cock Horse' Folk Club & unfortunately they're closed on Wednesday 10th as they'll all be preparing for their Festival. Sorry! Not sure about any others I'm afraid as I'm not local to Banbury.

Richard: The camping on the moon is supplemented by the minibus which does the rounds all weekend and is free to ticketholders which is a fantastic festival service!! Actually, the Hanwell Fields school is fantastic as a campsite with excellent facities & brilliant late night sings!! Well worth getting a ticket I reckon!! Anyway, you could always pop a pushbike in the van & sling a guitar over your shoulder.... couldn't you?

Kitty, Derek, Henry, and the Ducklets - Brill!!

Chris - you're booked, excellent!!! My name is up in lights too but only to run the MudGather I'm afraid *sigh* You'd best not be clashing with the Gather as I for one want to get along for a listen!

Now Jane, what sort of a question is that?? Does a bear.....?

Anyone up to bringing a prize or so for a MudRaffle? Proceeds would be to MudCat of course!!

Thanks for the DVD of the party, it's brilliant! Richard seems to have a real talent for film making and we loved all his little comments on it.

See you there

Brill - Capella are booked too (you really mustn't miss them) & so is Gilly Kemp (wuzzle - voice like an angel!) and looking at the guest list it's going to be hard to get to see everyone at the Festival - will try hard though!

So, who's bringing chocolate to the Gather? Anyone creating new delicacies for us to try this year?

After all, I'll become a pensioner that weekend so no more late nights, excessive drinking etc. Early to bed, and all that!

I'll be there. I expect to be running 'Herbaceous Border' from 4.15 outside the Mill - which probably clashes with the Mudgather. (Couldn't find a time for the gather on this thread)
It also probably means, Mr and Mrs Scarecrow, that I won't get to much if any of your songwriting workshop and you won't get to dance or play with us. Pity!

Latest news: Gather time should be around 3.30 - 6.30pm in the Town & Country Club on the Saturday. Hopefully Sue and her Herbaceous Borderers (this means you, AnnieCat & bubblyrat) will be able to get along and join us either before or after the dance sessions - we ought to be able to revive the weary dancers with Chocolate *grin*

Cllr: not sure what your timings are for your mixed session (presumably in the Reindeer) but as the Gather spans 3 hours, maybe you'll be able to get along at some point!

Geordie-Peorgie & the Lovely Shirl: we're ganna miss ye Man, can ye not pop in fer a bevvie? (apologies for the dreadful accent)

Mr & Mrs Scarecrow: We'll do our best to warm up the Town & Country for you and will try to clear up the remaining Chocolate before you start the evening Sing - it's a hard job, but someone's got to do it....

Seaking: I recall there being some hardy folks in tents at Hanwell Fields last year, but I have to say the indoor camping would probably be much more comfortable. See you early in the weekend for a quick Heron!

Phot & PoD: So glad you'll be at Banbury & hope you'll get to the Gather. Late night sessions at Hanwell Fields last year were fantastic!! The stewards seemed quite happy with the way we conducted ourselves (everyone was happy) & so hopefully it'll be the same this year. Brilliant acoustics in the hall at the school as I recall - or was that the Port? (ah yes, Bonecruncher - we'll be suitably equipped)

Fee Lock: Glad you'll be coming to Banbury, you'll have a Fab time, excellent dancing at this festival!! Accomodation at Hanwell fields (take a look at the information page on the website) is wonderful but I wouldn't call the distance to the town hall walkable from there, but then I'm not even fit enough to dance! But fear not, the free shuttle bus for ticketholders should be operating till all events have finished so there shouldn't be any problem for you getting back to the campsite at Hanwell Fields after the ceilidh.

Hope you're all collecting your Chocolate & Raffle Prizes!!!

Now that's what I call a program, wonderful!!! Well done to Merek'n'Dary and all the Banbury Elves, a lovely bit of organisation *grin*

Ok, so the Mudgather starts at 3.15 (ish if I recall last year) and it's preceded by a Fabulous Big Sing and followed by Ann & Dave's song session. Looks like the Town & Country is the place to be. But look at all the other things to do & people to see.... How are we going to be everywhere at once?

So CatsAll, we gonna have a MudRaffle, proceeds to the MudCat? C'mon, anyone able to bring a white elephant or so? I'll bring a few bits & pieces & I understand that the lovely Sechie - (RS) will be on hand once again to help keep the raffle in order *grin*

Petal of Florist: how lovely to see you here Girlie, looking forward to seeing you again at Banbury!!

Yes Hils, am already having to breathe into paper bags a couple o times a day to cope with the excitement over Banbury.AND, have chosen my fave food to cover with CHOCOLATE for the mudgather (does 3 visits count as a mudcatter??)Glad Chris is getting his Heron out for you, can me & my friend come & watch?And why is it that every time I pass a crystal shop I still find myself plastered to the window by some kind of magical magnetic force, are you SURE you've taken the batteries out of that box?

Fee, are you a Banbury virgin too then?Look 4wd to c-ing you there.Are you camping or indoor?They'll be able to tell us manly outdoor campers by the slight blue tinge & the chattering teeth, methinks.Never mind, CHOCOLATE will cure that... Kaz

Mudgather = chocolate covered stuff (singing, hugging, drinking, raffle etc)
Late Nite = stuff disguised as cocoa (singing, hugging, drinking, cheese & biscuits, no raffle)
Sorry for any confusion *grin*

Ah Petal (of Florist) good to see that you're really getting into the spirit of the chocolate enrobed goodies (still gagging with Jane's radish idea), looks like you'll make a fine MudGatherer. And as for watching Chris' Heron, we may even let you do it blindfolded!!!

Richard Atkins
Seaking
Herga Kitty & Derek (what name did we decide on?)

Main course and pudding, all in one!
I prefer Jim's suggestion of whiskey liqueurs.
Not much good at sweat cookery but I will try hard.

Whiskey Liquers Jim? Do you not mean Whisky Liquers? And of course that would depend on whether you're drinking whisky while you're eating chocolate *grin* Unless you fancy bringing some along!!

So glad you can come Em, don't let Jude's allergic reaction stop your imagination Girlie!

And please, (safety notice) if anyone coming to the gather has an allergy, please check what's in the chocolate goodies before you start scoffing them!!

Colyn dear, it seems that vegetarian is situation normal for chocolate enrobing. Mind you, an American Catter did once suggest chocolate coated salmon.....

Am turning my ingredients on a twice daily basis *grin*

Geordie-Peorgie & The Lovely Shirl: So sorry you won't be able to come along, but what a wonderful time we all had last year meeting you both, you're Catters Born!!

Newsflash from the Website:   POSTAL STRIKE

Because of a postal strike we are holding on to tickets purchased during the past week at the box office for collection on arrival. As far as possible we will be contacting those people who have bought them to inform them of this. If you have not heard from us, or your tickets have been held up in the post, please come to the Box Office and they will let you have your tickets if they are holding them or re-issue them if necessary. Directions to the campsite are available from the "Information" page.


That's Merek'n'Dary crossing the T's & dotting the I's for us (aren't they just lovely) hope they remember the tin of Choccies for the MudGather *grin*

MudGather (Saturday 13th) reminders:

All Welcome - not just MudCatters!

3.15 (ish - the Big Sing runs away with itself) till 6.30 for Stalwarts - do drop in sometime!

Place: Town & Country Club - at the Wetherspoons end of town (on the way to the White Lady which is well worth a look) & marked on map on website & program. Has access button on main door - you're welcome to press it. Otherwise go around the back to the car park, the door will probably be open for Smokers.

Smokers: please keep an eye out for wind direction so the smoke doesn't all come into the Gather - Thanks!!

Please bring Chocolate (Just checked the fridge and all seems to be well!!!!) & Raffle prizes (even white elephants) if possible!

MudRaffle - draw at about 5.30, leave your ticket with a trusted friend (??) if you can't be there at the draw.

Please let me know if you have to be somewhere else so I can divert the MadCat to you - and remind me if it looks like I've forgotten - my memory or lack of it is world famous *sigh*

As most of you will know this is a programmed event, but is non-ticketed. As with all Festivals the fringe is extremely important, but please do support the Festival proper (ie. buy a ticket) if you can!!

Not long now - really looking forward to seeing & hugging you all again - Safe journeys everyone!!

Merek'n'Dary - thanks very much for putting together and running another great festival!

MGAS - thanks very much for putting together and running another great Mudgather! Well attended, considering how many Catters were performing at other venues at the time.... just about enough time to accommodate all the performers and the raffle. (We've told Wuzzle that the perennial raffle prize is to be returned by next Banbury at the latest, though it may be recycled next month at Bedworth.)

I'm just so sorry to have heard today that the Town and Country club (which has been such a very welcoming venue for the Banbury Mudgather) was burgled last night.

Many thanks Kitty, glad you got home safely!

What a lovely Gather it was, and yes, JUST enough time to get around everyone Once!! Seems crazy for a 3 hour session, but we did have a fair few Catters & Potential Catters turn up. As we were coming up to Draw time I was scooping up Catters who still hadn't sung and didn't manage to get MalcBedworth & Gill to sing before they had to leave for duties, for which I apologise profusely. I hope I didn't miss too many others, more apologies if so. Can't believe I didn't notice the sultry Blonde by the Bar at the start, I'll never live that one down....

Thanks so much to all who came, and stayed! Boy, was there some talent in the room *grin* Oh, and lots of chocolate (hurrah)!! Did everyone enjoy the 'dog-poo' lookalike?

The MudRaffle raised £88 which I'll transfer into MudCat funds asap. Thanks so much to everyone who brought prizes & bought tickets and especially to my Right-hand Partner in Crime, the lovely Selchie-(RS).

I'll pop the register on here in a couple of days when I've caught up with other stuff.

Awful that the Town & Country was robbed that night!! I understand that the cash from the machines & pool tables was taken & that the thieves vandalised the place too. Hope they get what they deserve. Our Hosts were Fabulous & looked after us all really well on the Friday & Saturday, even to the extent of providing free food - as they did last year I recall.

Major thanks to Merek'n'Dary and all their hard-working Elves for another Fine Banbury Festival, keep up the good work!

BTW, I managed to mislay a denim shirt (pale denim with an off-white corduroy collar, designer label on the inside) at Saturdays late night sing at Hanwell. Colin didn't find it on clear-up so we figured someone might have picked it up to pass on to me, anyone any ideas?

I will really miss coming next year (can't really dodge my daughter's wedding, though).

I know we'll all be meeting up again at Crediton or Miskin, , or Chippenham, or Sidmouth, Dartmoor, Bideford ...
