If breakfast is on, then I'm up for it (not sure about Richard), but if there's not enough people to warrant it, I don't mind waiting till lunchtime!

Right! ... time to get down to some sorting out.

Looks like the Norfolk contingent's a little reduced, but still half a dozen or so coming. One couple are staying at mine, others in Brin & Linda's house.

Alan, have you done anything about a caller for the Ceilidh yet? We probably need to make sure we've got one. Any callers coming? The core of the band should be there, but I haven't confirmed with anyone. Shouldn't be any fuss getting a scratch band together, though. Also ... is there somebody to run all the sessions?

Mark wanted to know how many people were wanting breakfast on Sunday morning. Perhaps people can indicate that here. I'm assuming those people kipping on his floor will be buying his breakfast (!?)

:-)

G-P

I'm reminded of Jake Thackray's story of how he and Mrs T celebrated the departure of their last offspring to leave home by making love in every room of the house!

Snores are one thing - bedsprings another!

Right

One of the things that Mark needs to know (landlord of The Bushel) is how many people want Full English Breakfast (and a half) on Sunday morning. If there's enough demand, he'll ask his chef to come in special (otherwise I'll probably be cooking it).

Wonderful info Ian, am even tempted by the 'dossing down' option - with airbed of course. Would this be available for the Friday & Saturday nights or just one or them?

Breezy Dear: many thanks for your nomination, but I would only offer my services as a last resort really, they're very well organised as far as I can tell!

Some options for accommodation for the weekend.

1) Dossing down at The Bushel (limited numbers).

Mark has a room which he is happy to let people use free of charge. Bring your sleeping bag. Let me know if you want to use this option.

2) Hotel (Bed & Breakfast) in the village.

The Three Tuns has rooms available from £39 (single room) and £49 (double room) for the night. The room with the four poster is £69.

3) Hotel rooms outside the village.

The Sleep Inn at Baldock Services (Radwell) is a couple of miles away and does rooms from £50 per person.

4) Caravan and Camping Sites.

The Caravan Club site is at Ashridge Farm, Ashwell Street. There is also a Camping and Caravanning site at Loves Lane. Both require you to be a member of one of the Caravanning or camping clubs (see details).

5) Other options.

If none of these options are suitable, there may be others available. Please contact me via the number on Alan's website.

:-)

OK

Here's a link to the previous thread

Most things are now in place, you can download a poster and the programme from the Folkmusic.org.uk website

John Grey has volunteered to moderate one or more sessions - any more volunteers?

Still working on a caller for the ceilidh - suggestions welcome.

We may substitute another session for the advertised workshops, more anon.
