G'Day,

Although I am not a regular contributor I do occasionally check things out on the Mudcat and as I saw this thread I thought I'd say hello as I will be over in the UK on a small tour and will also be performing at Bromyard. So please feel free to introduce yourself.

For more information you can find me at:

Hi Bromyard organisers! I haven't received my tickets or esoteric bits of paper entitling me to tickets yet. Even though I sent my request to you a while ago. Should I be worried?

Noreen, There are usually morris diplays in the town on Saturday and Sunday. Plus there's informal sessions/sings in most of the pubs all weekend. You can have quite a good weekend without ever going onto the Festival site.

LIFT FOR ROD SHEARMAN'S SISTER

Those attending Towersey FF will know that Rod Shearman's ashes were scattered along the road from the festival site to the Barn at the Three Horseshoes where he enjoyed singing. It was therefore a very emotional weekend and one I shall always remember. I know that many Mudcatters attended.

His sister Greta Alexander was one of his relatives who attended and it was her first folk festival. She enjoyed it so much that she also plans to come to Bromyard FF. As she is not online, my reason for making this posting is to ask for a lift for her from Herne Hill in South East London where she lives. Alternatively, if that is not possible, she says that she can get a train to Worcester, arriving around the Friday lunchtime/early afternoon. (I would give her a lift from there myself but I will already be at Bromyard by mid morning).

Please can someone help? Her telephone numbers are 020 7274 6638 (home) and 020 7277 1374 (work). Thanks!

"Here's to the friends that I've yet to make ...!"

PS I've duplicated this posting on the Towersey FF 2001 thread.

Don't know about unnacompanied but in my opinion The Rose and Lion has the best beer (Wye Valley)and has good sessions in the bar and in the barn where there is a bar. Contact Dick Dixon on 07831 890905 or from Fri 21st at the Festival Office on 01531 670593 about when you can put tents up from past year's I think from about midday.

Looking forward to more singing, dancing and merriment, with friends met and unmet.

Its always nice to meet up and sing with good friends. I enjoyed that most of all but I also enjoyed:-
the morris dancing (particularly as it was the first time my son had danced with us for at least a year);
the singing in the Hop Pole on Sat and Sun during the day, along with a local group "Compost Heap" (after the two tubas had been persuaded to leave!);
a nice barbeque hosted by Derek and Mary Droscher (who run Banbury Folk Club); and
the very late night (drunken!) singing in the food tent.
