I have heard nothing about the weekend OTHER THAN the weekend of the 26th will be the St Peter's School Fete and the Aylesford Festival will be the following week, start of July!!!!

Seems like it is a complete screwup and the locals know nothing about either!!!

Correct Tam, I washed my hands of the whole event.

However, Bishop Gundulf will be at the King George v in Brompton, near Chatham on the 26th which is Help for Heroes Day. All folkies are welcome to attend. Also, there is the Four Pub Beer Festival which NEEDS folkies and Morris Dancers.

Link to the thread for that one is here. Please spread the word.

See you at Linda's BBQ or at one of the above or at Knockers!!

Cheers

Kev

Well done to all concerned. The hospitality at The Bush was ace, and it was nice to see the locals enjoying our session(s). It's very handy for the campsite/carpark. We found the alleyway leading straight to the field. I would counsel against moving the festival date though. At present it clashes only with Leigh Festival. Moving it to the following weekend would clash with Rainham Folk Day, and Danson Park Festival. We are going to both. Also, were thinking of camping next year.

While Kev is busy thanking everyone else, I think it's time to render a large dose of gratitude to the man who runs himself into the ground every year to make this happen.

I have it on good authority he was nearly seven feet tall before he started wearing his legs away.

Kev, Thanks mate.

No, really.....THANKS!

Incidentally, Kev, I had a nice chat with the man on the PA rig on Saturday - a very reasonable fellow once it became clear I was a fellow anorak (I was fascinated that he was running C-Audio amps, not modern ones, although his Turbosound speakers were state of the art - we finished up agreeing that switch-mode power supplies can cause scratchiness) - and he was clear that he was promised a certain wherewithall to do his job properly and it did not arrive.

You can ONLY hear the PA rig properly, to get the sound right, from in front of it. So he wanted a little waterproof tent sufficiently back from (ie in front of) the stage and central between the speakers so that his expensive toys would be safe and dry there if it rained, while he tweaked the sound from there.

I'd have wanted the same.

Hi ALL!!!

Left the field at around Seven last night!! Am home now and going to have an early night!!!

Thanks to all of you that attended the weekend - sounds like you enjoyed everything that we organised and equally, what we didn't!! Any suggestions for next year are always welcome.

Special thanks to The Bard, Don, Bob K and our own Hoff for keeping the singing and playing going throughout the weekend, both on the field and in the new home of folk at Aylesford - The Bush.

Thanks to all the Morris sides that attended. Great to see Skinner's Rats, Jez Gold and Norcsalordie over both days.

Thanks to the Val and Lynn and all who contributed to the fine selection of food over the two nights.

The Scouts and their legendary burgers were on top form as usual.

HUGE thanks to all who helped with stages, marquees, security fences etc etc - ESPECIALLY if you helped to take it all down on the Sunday night!!!!!

Finally - The Committee - Simon, Mark, Gareth, Neil and myself. It is a BLOODY big job getting Aylesford running each year - it is a pleasure to work with a team of dedicated and professional madmen during the year, and I look forward to doing it all again next year.

AS FAR AS I KNOW - it will be the last weekend in June as usual - BUT - I did pick up on a possible date change for 2010 which MIGHT - MIGHT see it a week later.

I will let you know AS SOON AS I KNOW!!!

Thank you ALL!!!!

See lots of you at Sidmouth and then Fav and Knockers - all the best to you.

Kind regards and best wishes to each and all.

Kev

Plus we all forgot: The Bush is a damn site closer to stagger back to campsite. I did enjoy the pleasure of a cooked breakfast,without cooking....Kev can you ask if they do a delivery service, that would certainly place Aylesford on the Folk Map.

Hi MIck

See above for the Saturday night debacle at the Chequers.

Next Don turned up there to run the Sat PM session and was told that the rugby was going on the telly and he could like it or lump it, so he wisely lumped it - at which point we decided we would not be back!

Had a fantastic weekend - thanks Kev for you organisation and thanks to Val and Lynn who provided both food and alcohol as well as a hospitable place to have our get togethers. Really liked The Bush as well - was pleasantly surprised that the locals at the pub - a lot of them younger people - really seemed to appreciate what we did and I also noticed a lot of people walking past the pub on their way to and from the fete smiling when they heard us. Also, the beer in the Bush was scrummy and cheaper than the Chequers!!! Can't wait until next year.

Four hours driving got us back to Nottingham safe.. What a fabulous weekend after a one day visit last year, it was definitely worth the weekend camping. I have a couple of video's I may add on Utube. However they will have to wait until I return to london.
Once again congratulations Kevin on your organizing for a wonderful weekend.

The Bush want us back next year, Friday evening Saturday, and Sunday.

It's a much nicer venue, and all of the bar staff spent what break time they had outside listening to us.

Highlights for me included some gritty and wonderful new material from Bob Kenward, a lot of inspired harmony, and a feeling of being welcome.

Book me in again for 2010 Kevin.

Just back. Well done Kev for all the organising. Obviously your word with the bloke whose mate lives upstairs worked, as we only got rained on once (but hell did it rain then).

Shame the landlord of the Chequesrs turned out to be such a plonker but I heard that the outside session at the Bush was excellent, and I certainly hugely enjoyed the evening sessions on the field in the Gong Scourers enclave.

I cannot imagine why but a huge amount of alcohol seemed to be drunk and there were some very poorly looking people some mornings.

I may well put up my small awning as it doesn't need to be 'nailed down'. We'll see.
