  1. Yet the government won’t back the industry’s request for insurance backing. But fingers and everything else crossed we get there this year.
  2. I’d guess that in the same way “normal” festivals are waiting to see if there’s a possibility of a return to pre-pandemic normality, this kind of event will be waiting to see if there’s a void to be filled.
  3. I’ve been going for several years and echo the previous reply that it’s a great little fest and good value - without being cutting edge! Our kids are 7 and 5, so last time they were 5 and 3 - but we’ve taken them from when they were babies. Never been a problem, there’s a chunk of the kids area set aside for babies - play, feeding, nappy changing. The crowd is fairly decent - can get a bit raucous later in the evening but nothing uncomfortable. Loads to do away from the site - you’ll probably know it’s a fairly steep walk into town. To sum up, I’d say it’s almost an ideal festival fo
  4. Festivals will charge you to use their electricity as part of the pitch fee, or through metering useage. The bigger barrier is serving alcohol. Festivals have their own bar contractors, as a general policy will not have any other vendors offering alcohol in general trading and food outlets... Smaller, grassroots events may like the idea of something a bit different/nichey.

  6. Well at least you’re not leaving it ‘til the last minute. Poor answer options on multichoice and very broad definition questions.
  7. Budget of £150,000, that doesn’t go far these days. Totally unrealistic to get anything like the line-ups they’ve been putting on in recent years with that. But they won’t draw the numbers they have been getting with any less than a line-up of a similar status, which means their food and drink rake, merch sales and car parking fees will be less as well. Must put future years in doubt. Simple way would be to follow Bingley Live’s approach and sell bargain basement tickets to recoup some cost. If they maintained the kind of line up they’ve become known for, and charged £20-£25/day, they sho
  8. Why would you put that line-up out and not put tickets on sale until March?
  9. I was at Paul Simon. I hated it, was just too big. Had a feeling it wouldn’t be his last show when I bought the tickets on the day they went on sale, and so it proved to be. Fortunately I am going to the final New York show. I thought James Taylor was perfect for the early evening sunshine, though the set was samey throughout.
