  1. PSB vs PSB

    I saw Public Service Broadcasting last night in Leeds- great gig, really enjoyed it. Regarding the other PSB- still love them too- their set at Glastonbury in 2010 is 1 of my favourite ever Glastonbury sets.
  2. Park and camp question

    Thank you
  3. Football 17/18

    Strachan has quit/left by mutual consent http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41598733
  4. Park and camp question

    Thanks Chas- would you say it was worth the extra?
  5. Hi there Just been told from WOMAD when enquiring about something else that early birds will go on sale 15th of November. Thought folks may want a heads up
  6. Park and camp question

    Hi all Planning a return to WOMAD next year and looking into the Park & Camp option. Have any of you used this- I just wondered as we are going with friends and want to camp together do you get allocated a spot or is it just take your pick when you arrive?
  7. Favourite venues

    Brudenell is on my list- great venue Before I moved to Leeds my favourite was always the Barrowlands (and still is though not been in many many years) but when I moved here I really like the Apollo in Manchester. Sadly missed is the Cockpit in Leeds
  8. The Gaming Thread

    Yes- I do love that site- unfortunately often ends up with me buying stuff that I don't need!
  9. The Gaming Thread

    We are now getting around to buying a new console and TV to go with it- for the kids honest! Will hang fire until Black Friday and am planning to get a PS4 (not the pro just the slim) In regards to a TV- I know from a bit of research that lag is important (i.e. it being low) and was after any recommendations for some in the budget category and 43" size. Ta very much
  10. Family friendly festivals

    Agreed- we loved it last year We did Deershed this year which was good in some ways with tons for the kids today but in my opinion didn't last long enough- only had 1 full day as you arrive Friday and leave Sunday
  11. New site layout

    Not going this year but looks like the whole fairground set up as changed- my kids really liked Carters but looks like they're not there this year and the rides are spread out a bit more around the site too.
  12. Got any gigs coming up?

    Yes- I was at it last night in Sheffield and was excellent. 5th time I have seen them and as good as always. Also went to Thee Oh Sees in Manchester on Wednesday night for the 1st time and thoroughly enjoyed that.
  13. Helping out after the festival ends

    Yes as others have said- there is the option to stay on afterwards litter picking- and there are normally signs dotted around telling you where to report on the Monday. You would need to re-locate your tent to Tom's field. I have done recycling crew many times but never stayed on afterwards (there is no the option on the recycling crew to do that if you wish) but I have heard it is pretty hard work- hands on knees making sure every last fag butt/small bit of litter is picked up. Though I would imagine that element doesn't happen immediately as they'd need to clear the bulkier stuff 1st and all the rubbish/tents etc. that those that don't follow "leave no trace" leave behind.
  14. Good quality and large pop up tent - recommendations?

    Yes- they do tend to do sales as they did it with last year's model https://www.decathlon.co.uk/air-seconds-family-4-xl-freshblack-inflatable-tent-4-man-id_8357358.html but think it would probably be after the summer so will be keeping an eye out!
  15. Good quality and large pop up tent - recommendations?

    I had that one for last year's festival and it was great in a lot of ways- not least the blackout lining. I did find with only me and all my stuff and the lack of porch a bit of a pain- especially as I am quite tall. May monitor the price of this inflatable one and see if it goes in a sale sometime https://www.decathlon.co.uk/air-seconds-family-4-xl-fb-id_8384154.html
