Hi John! Would be fab to have a MudGather at Shrewsbury, but I'd need a venue & time programmed in by the Festival Organisers so that I could get one off the ground in good time. Maybe next year?

Failing that I'll be around collect and distributing hugs to all that want them & probably will be found in or around the beer tent *grin*

Safe journeys everyone!!

It's down on our (performer's!) schedule as a "pub session" without further explanation...

Hi Robbie

You can easily buy a youth ticket if you call the festival office.

You can also buy one on the festival weekend whichever is easier.

Yes all three gates will be open at 10am. Choosing the best one for you depends where you want to camp. But it's my guess you will be waved into the next available entrance so you may not be able to choose a gate.

Les, if you still haven't received you programme give me a call and I'll check it out for you.

Thank God the trend was altered at Cropredy 2007 - absolutely perfect and maybe too hot for some! Here's praying for Shrews.

Last year I downloaded the tune book for the tunes workshop. I think this is a brilliant idea. I feel a bit of cheek for complaining but .......................... the Adobe files gave a very small and sometimes unclear page when printed out. Not really a problem at home but difficult to use in a group in a field in the festival.

and .............. here I go again......... rather a lot of Irish tunes? I love them all but I cannot play them as well or as fast as they are played in Irish sessions. Any chance of a more English based tune book and workshop? How about The Boat Band - even though they play a bit quick for me?

Fantastic festival excellent workshops.

The set up team leaders will be on site in seven days time. The task is to build a small town in four days. And the stewards in that team work all hours to make it happen. And you only ever see smiling faces. For me it is one of the best parts of the festival, I can't wait to get started, see you all there, and thank you in advance.
