Good thinking: Bob's site says he's there on Sat 18th and Sun 19th. So that's Bob and me will be there that weekend.

(John R: I think Ali had considered the following weekend, but opted for the earlier one for reasons which escapse me now.)

I think Ali spoke to the police about the problem this year so i reckon they may be a bit more attentive next year.

Maybe look out for one-another aswell.

Never really bin too much aggro in previous years so that incident this year shouldn't be allowed to spoil what is a fab festival eh ?

Hi everyone, and Happy New Year!

The dates are July 17th to 19th, and artists booked - apart from Bob Fox and Hamish - include
Eric Bogle and John Munro
New Rope String Band
Strawhead
Triban
Hissyfit
Askew Sisters
Gene Burton
John Prentice
Stanley Accrington
Barrie + Ingrid Temple
Zoe Mulford
Copper Kettle
Better Late

Hopefully the campsite won't be a problem. The police were very concerned about the incidents and did prosecute. I got apologies from the Inspector - my phone call to ask for them to come down to the site and informing them of the potential threats was neither recorded nor acted upon.

BUT there is a problem. Due to work and family pressures (my parents are 88 and 93 and very frail, and my daughter's just had her 4th baby, so I'm supporting them all and working through the night at the moment) I've pulled out of doing the artists now. So the committee are meeting on the 15th of this month to decide if they can go ahead with the few festival with the few people left to run it. I'll come back to Mudcat as soon as I hear their decision.

Love
Ali x

Ali I am sorry that you find yourself in this position and clearly family comes first

Help on the day should certainly be in evidence and jobs that can and should be delegated need to be identified by the committee

Priorities for the festival need sorting asap

Once the committee have met no doubt further info can be made known?

All the best for 2009 to all!!

Thanks Linda and Ray.

I think my leaving was the last straw as the committee were dwindling, and the artists / programming etc is such a huge job, if not a difficult one. I've enjoyed every minute of it - I've worked with such lovely people (including yourselves of course).

Anyway, we'll see what happens on the 15th - fingers crossed.

We decided to have the festival in 2009 - just to make sure that the trophy comes to Yorkshire!!

Seriously though, the Festival is going ahead. I won't be doing the artists stuff as I've got too much on, but I'm finishing off bits and pieces and letting the artists know who the new contact is.

I'll still be doing the weekend desk, and they've asked if I'll MC some of the main concerts as I go to quite a few festivals MCing now - so that's lovely. I'll be staying as Festival Director until the AGM in November - after that, I don't think the new committee feel a Director is necessary.

So I'm off to start on the Running Order now - thanks for all the lovely messages and enquiries. And the website should be up to date very shortly!Watch this space!

You're right Andy, the Saddleworth website is unusually lagging behind with detail this year. There's less than a month to go now, after all.
Soldier boy - (and hey, please let's not stoop to name-calling) my intention in posting originally was to spur someone into action to get some more information out there.
Too many festivals are leaving it very late in the day for getting a decent level of info out on the website (not just because of funding uncertainties, which we can all understand) and as a result are probably losing out on attendees simply because not everyone can make important decisions and arrangements (things like accommodation, getting time off work etc) at the last minute.
