    Dissertation Survey

    Done but as MJP says a bit wishy-washy.

    The line up is getting better by the day. https://www.cambridgerockfestival.co.uk/
  4. Done. Good luck but please come back and post a summary of your findings.

    Ticket For Life is very simple. You agree to buy a ticket each year (unless you choose to cancel the agreement) and pay by monthly instalments. In return the price you pay is the price of a ticket in the year you buy in. So, even if ticket prices rise year on year, you are still paying the same as when you signed up. The plus point for the organisers is that they get a certain, guaranteed steady income stream which helps their cash flow. The possible downside is that you are agreeing to buy a ticket before you know who will be playing - but that's not uncommon with quite a lot of festival Early Bird deals or with the Glastonbury approach. But if it's a festival that fits with your general tastes you can usually be sure that there will be a few gems amongst the bands and enough variety to keep you happy. If Glastonbury offered a similar deal I would have bitten their arm off years ago.

    WHERE Sorry that this is turning into a collection of Grumpy's Goners, but a delightful ditty.

    Come on children. Each to their own. I've been a Wychwood goer for many years and signed up to their Ticket for Life scheme a few years ago. Why? Because it's a delightful festival with a varied line up and will usually include a few acts that I will really enjoy. Bill Bailey a couple of years ago remains one of my all-time festival highlights. But for me festivals ceased to be about headliners a long while back. It's about a chance to chill and meet up with old friends and enjoy a few days away in my caravan. Now if that makes me an old fart, so be it. Wychwood ticks those boxes for me and it's also a relatively short tow of my van. It's also a good start to the festival season and a chance to check out all of my festival gear. If it were 200 miles away I probably wouldn't be so keen but people choose their festivals for a wide variety of reasons. As people have said so often about Glastonbury it isn't just about the line up.

    The Joke Thread

    Plan G - Nursing Home Plan Say you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you. So, what do you do? You opt for “Medicare Plan G”. The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Plan G) and one bullet. You are allowed to shoot one worthless politician. This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the Health Care you need. Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are all covered! As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now! And, who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you they can't afford for you to go into a nursing home. And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it. And now, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any more income taxes! Is this a great country or what? Now that I've solved your senior financial plan, enjoy the rest of your week.

    Things that ur happy about

    France 19- Wales 24. What a team talk that must have been in the dressing room at half time. And I bought tickets today for the Cambridge Rock Festival. Double result.
  11. Got my tickets today, so July festival sorted. A long tow with a caravan but run by nice people and worth the haul.

    In theory we all had an equal chance to get tickets for Glastonbury but some had better computers and connections than others. Is that a pecking order or just luck?
