Since the Mudgather at Banbury was so good and we are all looking forward to TWO at Bedworth, would it be a nice idea to organise one for Sidmouth 2005 as well? There should be loads of us there.

Lynne,

The pub on the corner of Dove Lane is handy for The Anchor and The Newt so perhaps a Mudcat drop-in might be an idea or would music and song in said pub break a long standing tradition.

Are Anchor people allowed to say the name?

I know mention of the Anchor calls for a fine in the pub I am thinking of.

Yes Dave, it's ok for MBSers to say the Dove but not ok the other way around...as I have cause to know...I spend half my time outside, spinning round and spitting! And unfortunately music and song are frequently perpetrated in the Dove these days. I'm not sure, though, that it needs to be a sing. There are plenty of those around (we hope!) The reason the Dove used to be a music-free zone was so that everyone could go and meet friends and have a natter and a break from music if they needed it. Sounds like a good idea still.

Mike...you didn't invite US!!

So...sounds like a good idea then?

Well lynne if the idea takes off there may me some new faces in The Dove if I were to put my head round the door (as I sometimes do) between sessions.

However we see a lot of these guys anyway - the bunch at Cllrs (semi) open house for example and a number of other MBS mudcatters so it may all happen naturally.

I'd have thought the obvious Committee member to take this up would be Tony Day. After all, those Catters who turn up will be the ones who have voted with their feet to make 2005 a good festival, not the ones who just made negative comments from a distance.

Will there be chocolate? Or should it be fudge? Or possibly even a Mudcat cream tea?

New Land Rover? Bloomin' show-off. I'll be there with very old Land Rover (if it's stopped leaking oil, it's probably empty). Probably only able to make the first half of the festival, though - so if the MudGather's at that end of the week that'll be grand.

Lynne - the Dove is STILL non-music. You have had to turn round three times widdershins and spit for less! It is a haven of peace and tranquility (or at least, it was!) - and the only pub where you can watch a test match without interference!

Perhaps a mudgather in the top bar at the Scottish Place?

I think anyone who's looking forward to being at Sidmouth next year and is working to make it an enjoyable event would be pretty hacked off at some of the negative comments being posted to other threads.

Alanww asked a question and I answered it. Tony Day happens to be the Committee member responsible for co-ordinating singarounds at Sidmouth 2005. He's also a member of Mudcat who is still posting info to the appropriate threads when there is positive info to post. I would expect him to appreciate that anyone who wants to attend a Mudgather in Sidmouth next Folk Week has a positive reason for attending. (I think he might even have enjoyed the previous gathers if he'd been there, because all the other MBS Mudcatters did....)

So if we want the Mudgather to be a singaround with chocolate it would make sense to let TD know....

I e-mailed TD. He thinks a Mudgather is a good idea as long as it doesn't clash with the Middle Bar sessions, so he is inviting suggestions for where and when.

From the above posts I reckon it can't be Thursday afternoon (singing in the sea, probably followed by DG&D) or Friday (Vectis will have gone to Broadstairs).

The Balfour is a bit of a trek - it was OK for late night sessions if you were heading back to the campsite afterwards.

The Volly will be in use for the lunchtime "in the tradition" sessions as usual.

Terri (Morticia),

So you don't think a blast of sea air, thermos of coffee, paraceamol, or a hip flask full of your favourite tipple will cure your hangover.

Failing that, if you are using Cllr's accomodation again, take a bottle of something up there and stay drunk! :-)

Mr Greenhaus,

Firstly it will be in Sidmouth (I thought that was clear enough)in Devon!

As to when, a lot of us will be there for a weekend in February and know exactly when so I suppose there was no need to be that specific.

The original proposition from Lynne was for "The First Week In August" which has a very specific meaning to us.

We know what it is all about and those who don't won't be involved.

Sorry if there has been a breach of etiquette but it was a bunch of friends chatting among themselves.

Dick's right.

We shouldn't be parochial. However, as far as I know, Dick goes to Whitby when he comes to England in August (in the week running up to the last Monday in August), and hasn't so far had the opportunity to enjoy the Sidmouth experience (which runs round the first Monday in August).

Just because the management of the Sidmouth (hitherto International) Festival will be different next year doesn't mean we shouldn't have an international contingent. I hope that we will see old friends again, and welcome new ones, between 29 July and 5 August 2005. And anyone who can make it for the 18-20 February reunion weekend.

Ok..suggestion. 4-6 one afternoon, so avoiding clashing with any of the other sessions. Possibly Tuesday afternoon. The Volunteer may be an idea, or the garden of the Swan perhaps? What does everyone think? Once we've decided we can put it to the 'management' and probably get it as a 'programmed' event.

Swan Garden would get my support (it's a place that a lot of us MBS people migrate to anyway)

I agree time between 4 & 6 seems best.

Early in the week for those not staying all week would be best so Tuseday would be good.

What you say Lynne leads me to believe you may have read something somewhere else (deliberatley cryptic but probably decipherable to other interested people)!!!

Getting back to something sensible...

Now that local councils have responsibility for licensing public houses and the 'two-in-a-bar' rule no longer applies, can anyone tell me whether The Anchor, The Volunteer, The Bedford et al have received their new licences yet from East Devon Council?

Will the Council be as strict on enforcing licensing regulations in public houses as they are threatening to be with the arena, campsites, marquees etc.?

First and second time Mudcatter, I think Sherlock was probably addressing our resident GUEST troll, not you. You're question, however, would probably be better put on the "Sidmouth information" thread rather than this one, which is only about the idea and possibilities of a Mudgather at Sidmouth 2005, not about the festival in general.

Well Bud because of the interference of the Twit it has been suggested that the details of this proposed gathering would be better discussed elsewhere.

The MBS (Middle bar Singers) people contributing to this Tread will know where to look for further information and any non MBS types thinking of attending the gathering can use PM or private e-mail to one or other of us.

Lynne,Kitty,Phot,Cllr,Morticia and the rest I hope it is not presumptious of me to put out details of what has been suggested by the "Bench".

Manitas. I think the lights went out with the departure of Steve Heap and Mrs. Casey Music who organised a brilliant 'farewell' festival in 2004.

The people planning Sidmouth 2005 really only want a few pub sessions in The Anchor and a few dance sessions in chilly church halls well away from the town centre. That's their choice. They never liked the 'big-name' concerts in the Arena and the Ham Marquee or the noisy concerts in the Bowd. They frowned on 'professional' folk singers and musicians and hated the way Sidmouth had grown to be THE festival of the year.

So let's leave them to host their own little gathering of Middle Bar Singers in 2005. The rest of us need to start looking to 2006 and finding the funding and the professional organisers capable of re-launching the REAL Sidmouth festival.

Which is just what they want! The Middle Bar Singers, the Radway Musicians,the morris dancers and the social dancers ie the doers can carry on as they do each year, there is an event acting as a placeholder so that venues don't get booked out for something else, at least two pubs and a few cafes get more revenue than normal but there are so few of them that it should become obvious whether or not the other traders need the income generated by the festival. Everyone should be pleased!

The Pavillion cafe bar sessions finish at three, and it is a rather civilised venue - and also warm and dry if the weather choses to be more thunder and hailstones than balmy breezes and a few fluffy clouds.

If it is available next year it might be wise to consider as either first choice or first reserve for bad weather.

I have decided to be in Sidmouth so have not been reading any Sidmouth threads for some time - I am not sure what is available.

Dear Guest speakers,

This thread was to be about a Mudcat gathering in 2005 your information,news etc can be addressed to the other trhreads but:-

1 Yes 2005 will be an "interim" thing but everybody is also looking to 2006 and onwards.

2 If you read the latest newsletter you will see that there will be more than the pub sessions and the Wurzels in 2005.

3 The newsletter also indicates how far the Steering group has got regarding funding, licences etc.

4 The Steering group have a wealth of experience between them and know what they are doing and what is going to be required.

Sorry - late entry to this thread. Where is the "Scottish place" ?: sounds like I should be there. Could it be the "Balfour" as there was a certain Balfour in "Kidnapped" by RLS? Will it bring me years of bad luck as for actors who forget to talk about the "Scottish Play" and actually say M*cb*th??
Re Hymns: we had a "Gospel song session" on Sunday morning at a recent Scottish Festival which went down a treat with everyone, most of whom had probably not been to church in years. Just an idea??
Hope to get down for some of it, though restrictions on Annual leave may preclude this coming year. as mentioned in another e-venue (MBS)
