Posted 17 May 2011 - 10:38 AMso my stewarding shift times have arrived, the visi-vest of power is being aired and re-rhinestoned, and the campervan list is now at page 3 :-)
I'll be working the Big Top (Welsh Accent, sparkly visivest, hairs in assorted colours, dances like a fool - come and say hello!) ... but I can't see anywhere who will be playing where and when?
Does anyone have such information please - it would be nice to know who I;ll see in the line of work
Posted 17 May 2011 - 12:31 PMBig Top ????!!!! - worked there last year - BEEN PROMOTED to the Main Stage this time round.
I think we'll have to wait for our 'complimentary' programmes to start planning who we'll miss!
Posted 17 May 2011 - 12:50 PMLine-ups and rumours page on here gives the best idea:
Bands run from 5-11 Friday, 11-11 sat/sun. sets are longer than at most festies.
I'm, err, stuck in the campsite - that said, I have some very fortuitous shifts....ps is there anyone on here NOT a steward?!?!?!?!

Posted 17 May 2011 - 04:29 PMGeo, you're right - it seems this Forum IS frequented by Stewards Only.
The other day I got a letter from Wychwood (did everyone else??) asking if, as a previous paying punter, I'd like to buy 2011 tickets. That was 3 weeks before kick off !!!
Doesn't bode well for the attendance does it - perhaps it'll be stewards and artists only..................
Posted 17 May 2011 - 04:33 PMthanks for your replies guys -
marooned - I missed last year due to having smashed my ankle to smithereesn, but worked the Main Stage for the 2 years before that - I don't mind where or when to be honest, just glad be back on my feet and back at Wychwood ... :-)
geofelgie - looks like a likely set-up to me ... will inevitably miss some that I want to see, but usually that means I discover something new that I fall in love with ... it's all good! :-) ... campsite is not so bad, theres usually lots of friendly people offering refreshment to a weary looking steward surely!
hope to say hello there ... x

Posted 17 May 2011 - 04:44 PM....yeah, the THREE of us ought to get together and cause a CRUSH......
Posted 17 May 2011 - 08:27 PMIt's not all stewards, although I was nearly working! We are 6 adults and 9 kids, plus we know of at least another 2+2 that are coming that are not working. Still not a crush, but it'll be alright I'm sure!!!
Posted 17 May 2011 - 09:10 PMI'm going with my family of 7 + my niece, my brother in law, and my girlfriend. Should be packed.

Geo, you're right - it seems this Forum IS frequented by Stewards Only.
Not all ... I'm a regular punter (with family in tow) - I'll wave from the crowd.
Posted 18 May 2011 - 10:43 AM....great, as long as there are 20 or so we can boss around - I've been practisin' all Winter!
Posted 26 May 2011 - 01:10 PMDaughter and I are on the Main Stage Friday night Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

When is the site map released? When are the set timings released?
Can't imagine the site map will be much different from previous years - there's not much room for manouevre, nor much need for change.
Rough timings is a matter of working back from the 11pm curfew on the Headliners...
The anticipation is rising fast in our household - 6th Wychwood for daughter and me, third for wife and granddaughter, and first for 10yr old Granddaughter's friend.
Looks like the waterproofs and wellies may be needed this year though. In 20 days on site since 2006 I've only been properly rained on once.
Posted 27 May 2011 - 10:37 AMSorry Banana Co, just realised this is your first year so references to no change aren't a lot of use.
The festival is small though, so you're never far from anywhere. You could have a look on Googlemaps (other mapping websites are available) the campsite is contained within the racecourse, the festival is pretty much all in the area which is covered by white marquees on the day the picture was taken.
Or just pitch up on the day, pitch your tent and have an explore - you'll be wandering around like a veteran within an hour or so (as long as you ddon't get distracted by the beer tent...)
Posted 27 May 2011 - 08:59 PMWe've only ever been rained on once in our 4 years, that cloudburst last year!! I think there was literally a very light shower one of the other 2 previous years, but we are talking 3 minutes of nothing if it was even that much. Hoping the weather streak will continue this year.....

That was some cloudburst too, first test of the rain catcher in the tipi, seemed to do its job as intended.
Forecast is looking good, quite hot according to the Beeb website weather.
