My chair was returned via Essex Girl, thanks Pete.

I am sure the Bass are not under my caravan. If they were under a caravan I wonder if Caspar found them??

Yes it was good, but not as glorious as last September, after which people just did not seem to want to go home and were still onsite Sunday afternoon.

Hi folks what a great Knockholt? it was some what over shadowed for me due to my mothers serious illness at the time. but I still enjoyed it,and dont remember much of it. but I do remember some excellent singers and players. I was told I was outragious on the Saturday night by a female friend I cant imagine what I done or was doing? still I have heard no more about it so it couldnt have been that bad?
Shifting those bogs by the method used was clever? I wonder if the Egyptians did it like that. Bloody Par-larva
Richard Bridge I recall seeing a blue chair by the bogs located at the Dead Oak copse centre field. I dont know about armless I was legess at the time alloy frame dark Blue? If we locate the Marquee near the headge we can secure it to one of the Oaks for future safety?
Oh by the way I lost Two Sea Bass I intended to cook on the Fire. Lord knows where they are now, Where I left them and what they must smell like by now,

Great photos Royston! Also looked at your sweeps pics and saved the ones you took of us on the Pigs Ear Stage. Didn't notice you there.Secret of a good photographer I guess. As regards the marquee, good idea to move it to the shelter of the fence. After our awningcollapsed at Broadstairs we bought huge pegs and holding straps that claim to keep a plane on the ground. You've seen them at Knockholt.

Richard, Colin contacted me yesterday and he has a chair that is not his, the description fits yours, blue with no arms. He was going to drop it round to me but I see that Linda is going to Aylesford at the weekend so if you are also going I'm sure it could be arranged for you to be reunited with it there. ps Thanks again for keeping my wine chilled on Saturday.

A semi-pro marquee fellow I know puts HUGE metal stakes into the ground (rather like the main ones that Knockers used to use on the superseded military tent), very close to the principal uprights, then runs a ratchet lorry strop over the top at each end, close to the support poles so that the long-ways poles are not in significant bending. Pretty well nothing will lift that off.

Oh gosh Royston I'm so sorry. As I said it could have been much worse. Glad you liked the punch It's amazing how pissed you can get on just lots of fruit juice which is all I could taste ;-) Must be the natural fermentation of the fruit. Please note I hold no reponsibility for peoples actions whilst under the influence of my punch.

We have decided to relocate the marquee to the fence area where we were camped, to give it some additional shelter from the wind and hopefully that will help. We are also going to buy some thick hessian ropes as guys instead of the nylon stuff which in actual fact tensile strength wise the rating was supposed to be sufficient but there you go you can't fight nature.

Richard would like to speak to in a proffesional capacity. I will PM you.

Great weekend (my first), I really enojoyed it. Big thanks to those who cooked up the food and to Debs for that truly lethal punch! I have learned that it is a good idea to have a caravan (Richard's)and a car (mine) to each side of the tent so that the free-range marquee can be stopped before coming right over the top of you. The marquee did flatten the front of my tent (no permanent damage) and were it not for the caravan and car, things could have been quite unfortunate. All's well that ends well...

I am not a professional photographer by a long shot but the photos from the weekend are HERE feel free to have a look and download what you want, cheers!

Oh, yes, if anyone finds a BLUE square canvas chair with no arms (designed to have no arms) it's mine and although I could find a similar green one I could not find my blue one and it's much better for playing guitar in than my sort of round-ish ones and I'd like it back.

Knackered my arse Woodsie, you mean pissed!

It's such a shame the lunchtime playing and singing does not happen anymore, but weather not suitable this time.

Royston has some killer photos and I expect a link to go up here in due course.

I liked the wet song session - was it Friday? The guitars largely stayed in cases (even mine) and we got some cracking unaccompanied singing from all quarters. But my favourite (until I had to go early to bed to be early to rise as stated above) was the Saturday. One of Annie's songs was a real gem, a very traditional sounding one.

I saw some people more pissed than ever before!

I am now back from my circular tour to Burbage Wilts via Orpington station (twice) and colelcted my wardo from the field a couple of hours ago.


For future reference is it possible to get a couple of lorry strops over the marquee onto really big stakes? I've seen commercial operations anchor marquees like that.

Well that's another memorable Knockholt!

What a great week. Shame about the marquee doing a ariel nosedive across the field that must have been one helluva gust of wind considering it still had 2 large gas lamps still attached to the roof struts. Fortunately not too much damage and repairable we hope. Thank god it didn't land on someone or their tent.

Fantastic music Saturday night, great harmonies. Thanks Richard B for sorting out my Mandolin, and my present it was much appreciated.

Roll on September. What you gonna call it Woodsie? Autumn Almanac, you did forsee the breeze ;-) Sorry about having to wait for the AA but the old bus got us home eventually.

Just got back - Pat's van broke down at Orpington, so we waited for the AA. I enjoyed Wednesday and Thursday nights and Friday & Saturday afternoons. Too knackered for the night sessions Fri & Sat. The beer was great at the Tally Ho - the food was terrible and overpriced. Pity about the rain and wind on the last night - looking forward to September - There seems to be a bit of confusion about the date - I will put it on the website when a committee member confirms the date.

Afternoon all, barring any emergencies I might actually make it to Knockholt this year, for the first time...if you'll 'ave me? Errm, the only thing I'm puzzled about is the Thursday night event. I understand that it's a kind of communal cook-up, but I don't know what to bring. Sorry for this lack of imagination but is there a "Knockholt 101" or can someone take me in hand and/or offer some sagely advice?

Hi All,

Thought you would like to know that Mick went to the field this evening and took the marquee and other various essential bits. The grass has been cut and The wood has been delivered. The toilets are arriving tomorrow morning. We will keep the home fires burning at the TB Wednesday night and look forward to seeing you all on Thursday and over the weekend.

Sue and Mick

PS Casper is looking forward to all those unattended bangers so beware!
