Something Else in the Dean 2018

Recommended Posts

Due to lots of reasons this years SEITD will be the last...... in the Dean...... Gail's other SE's will carry on and hopefully something new will also happen.

Tickets are going fast so if you fancy being at the last ever SE in the Dean do not delay. https://www.tickettailor.com/all-tickets/1162/b307/

First bit of line-up has also been released.

Huge shame.  Lovely festival in a good location and close to home for me.  Already got my tickets for the Campfire, Hobofest and SEITD.

Is there anything that can be done to keep things going?

Gail and the landowner have worked hard to keep this years events going and managed that - sadly there is nothing that can be done bar removal of those who like to complain.

I am sure she will find a site somewhere, though not in the Dean, for future events. I think the Campfire sessions will continue though as they are unplugged.

Thanks for the information Nobody Interesting. I've been torn about whether to get tickets for this or not. In fact, I'm still torn. Going to have to make my mind up soon though, before tickets run out.

Go for it Yog.  You'll be welcome to call round to my caravan for a glass or two.

Hello grumpy,

You'll never guess what? Me and the misses decided that we would 'go for it', as it may be the last year that they can hold it at The Elton Mazes. So, about 10 minutes ago I booked two tickets, and got the ticket confirmation email straight away. When I went to put that email / ticket in my Something Else in the Dean folder on the computer (for I have such a thing) I discovered that I already bought two tickets for this years festival last October - Doh!  What a plonker!  

I've emailed another friend who is going to see if he wants me to hold on to the two extra tickets, or whether I should contact Gail to see if I can get two of the four tickets that I have put back in to the pot. He has suggested that I hold on to them, so will do so for now.

So grumpy, it does look like I'll be going to the ball, after all (forgive the rhyme!). And one more thing, I'd be delighted to hook up with you at your caravan for a couple of drinks and a chat. Then you can come to our campervan for a couple of drinks and a chat. Then we can go in to the festival area, for a couple of drinks and a chat! Seriously though, I do look forward to meeting you (and your caravan!).We've talked for long enough on here, so it would be good to meet up in person.

Great news Yog.  You can show me yours and I'll show you mine (motorhomes and caravans that is). If you've got a couple of spare tickets in your pot Gail might allow you to swap them for her Campfire Sessions or Hobofest earlier in the year.

Hello Nobody Interesting,

I've really got to limit the amount of weekends that I take out this summer, as we are proposing to earn some income over the summer months / weekends. Whether that comes to fruition or not, time will tell. However, I looked at Gail's site and saw Hobofest and thought to myself 'that sounds interesting'. The only thing is that I don't know anything about it. Is it similar to Something Else in the Dean, or is there a marked difference?  :)

It all held in the camping area with a smaller arena next to the tents and vans.

Friday night is a simple round the campfire session night.

Saturday has 2 stages with music alternating all day.

Sunday has some acoustic music and the Hobo Olympics - which is another way of saying lots of drunk adults playing silly games and laughing lots.

Thanks Nobody Interesting. It now turns out that something else has cropped up, which means that we are going to have to take time away in Mid to late May now. This means that we no longer have the 'freedom' to take more time off. Oh well, never mind, maybe next year. Thanks once again for the reply though.
