Subject: Hull Shanty Festival 23rd 24th July 2011
From: ossonflags
Date: 17 Mar 11 - 05:56 AM

Yes folks I am pleased to announce the Hull Shanty Festival is going ahead. Not in its official form with money from that naughty Hull City Council, but a home grown one with collaboration of local buisnesses and Publicans from the Minerva, Ruscadors, Fruit market, me , Shanty Jack and Les Ward.

Therefore it will be on a shoe-string budget with up to 10 named acts being paid basic expenses and possibly some accommodation, food & drink.We have been advised that there will be room for campervans and some budget B and B.

We have agreed to call it The Hull Shanty Festival 2011.

It will be a two day event with main venues being the Minerva for singarounds and a separate room for musicians.There will be an open air staged area outside Ruscadors with spots acts inside and out.An informal meet and greet at the Minerva on the Friday night hosted be Les and Maggie
Fruit to get sponsored real ale bar
Exhibition of Coble and keelboat at fruit and possible workshops in Humber street area

To avoid any confusion I have been appointed to handle and coordinate arrangements for acts/ performers spots etc. so I would really appreciate people getting in touch personally with me to arrange a spot for you. If you pm me I will send me email details phone etc. I have been in touch with a few people and will be contacting many more.

Friday evening meet and greet at Minerva 7 - 11 pm

Saturday Evening concert at the Fruit a new venue seating 200 tickets to go on sale (about £7 each to be confirmed) 7 - 11 pm 5 x 45 minute spots, licensed bar this has to be pushed in order to get the cash to pay the main acts reasonable expenses (I am expecting therefore £2-300 per act minimum for the 2 days) if the concert is a sell-out another one can easily be arranged on Sat or Sun evening at Ruscadors for up to 120 people or in the Minerva for 50 theatre style! The acts move round.

Everyone needs to be aware this is being done on a very, very limited budget so there will be no big fees around but we will appreciate any help that can be given.We will be trying to defray costs with raffles and bucket collections.

I think that it is about it for now, I will keep everyone updated on progress to date

Thanks Geoff. I think that publicity is the main thing at the moment so any help/suggestions in this area will be welcome.

And thanks Rog. We will have a fairly constant singaround throughout the weekend (including spots from the festival guests - a format always used by the Hull Shanty Fests, thanks to Shanty Jack). We will also have the famous Saturday Night Anti-Shanty to give less emphasis to the maritime theme. At last I'm free to promote the Anti-Shanty without feeling that I'm running down the Festival and my (now former) employers! We would, of course, be delighted to see you.

Mick - typical YP, not putting the date in, but at least they had a contact phone number for potential sponsors.

Have put the good news out via Facebook and asked friends to re-send to their own contacts. Liam Robinson, who does a regular folk slot for Radio Lincs is keen to get involved and has asked for an email contact, so have given him yours, and have asked if he'll publicise the event on his radio show.

Mick,
Ann Berriman has put into progress the possibility of some singing on the Saturday in the Maritime Museum. They are up for it. I've emailed the details to Les who will hopefully pass them on to you. As you know I'm not available that weekend so I've asked Ann on behalf of Yorkshire Garland to co-ordinate this, as she's relatively local.

Thanks for that Steve;No, Les has not informed me of tha. I have Pmd you my email for the future.

Anne and Paul have been in touch and I am delighted we can feature this as part of the festival.


As you all can appreciate with something like this there is a lot of information/misinformation and enquiries flying around.

Because of this, and to avoid any confusion, the committee has asked me to coordinate this info and to give everyone a gentle reminder to send any information/ enquiries about the festival directly to me.We have now posters available get in touch with me and I will forward to you.

We are in the process of getting a proper web site sorted so when I have that info I will let you all know.

If you have'nt got me details I will send them to you.

We are very pleased with the progress and organisation of the Festival and I will give a full update on me return from Holmfirth.

We are holding a fund raiser for this festival at the Portland Hotel Hull Thursday 12th May.8.00pm. Tickets £5.

A lot of Hull club and variety artists are giving of their time to support us as well as me and Mr. Fronull .......still some tickets left

A proper update in a few days.
