I don't mind that. Well and truly had all its indie kicked out of it though.

Cool. Don't need to bother with this one again then. It will likely sell but I do wish they went back to their earlier line ups.

Much better than last year’s effort, not sure I’ll bother though.

I'd go on the Sunday, but we are away so a decision is not an issue.

Still a bit shite really.

What's it like getting away from there on the Sunday? 

I really want to see Grace Jones, but would need to get back to Paddington by 2330 thanks to the sorry lack of late trains at weekends.

You should be fine (and Grace Jones will be good).

It has finished at 10:00 on the Sunday the last few times and then it's only around a 10 minute dash down the hill to Lewisham station. You can get to Paddington in under 45 minutes from there (really!), with trains every 10 minutes to London Bridge (it's Lewisham - Lon. Bridge - Baker St - Paddington.)

Brilliant, thanks.

I was just checking train times and ....

"Travelling to the ONBlackheath festival? Lewisham & Blackheath stations are closed on Sun 14 July,  so please use Maze Hill station instead to reach the festival."

You couldn't make it up.  What a way to treat people.  🤬

Maze Hill is fine, it’s only a short walk to the common.

Another one I’m keeping an eye on for cheap tickets seeing as it’s only 15 minutes walk from my house.

Yeah - that's shite, but you'll still be fine. 

As HJ said, It's not much further to Maze Hill (it'll take about 20 minutes and it's downhill to the station) and they seem to have plenty of trains on. Also, Grace is scheduled to finish at 9:45, so you won't need to miss the end. Hope she's still on good form.

Grace will start and finish late. And be brilliant.

It's what she does...

What a fucking ballache - I was thinking of picking up a couple of tickets for Sunday as well. Now it's a fucking nightmare from Denmark Hill, so think I'll skip it. Pity, would have been good to see Grace.

How can something billing itself as a family festival only allow you to take an A4 sized bag in. That will surely be a disaster at the gates.

Stupid rule. All because they can't be bothered to check people's bags properly in this age of terrorism.

And OnBlackheath have massively screwed up by not advising Southeastern on the dates for this year to stop them from running the engineering work that weekend. 

What a mess.

And no re-entry!  All those local people wanting to take their little kids home and come back later.

Maze Hill and Greenwich really aren't that far away plus they're both downhill.

Like 10/15 minute walk?

I've just looked it up and unfortunately it's not on the same line as Denmark Hill and quite a diversion to get there, when one of the big positives was the convenience for getting to the site. Thanks anyway!

It's what she does... 

That sounds all too likely. 
I don't want to miss any of Grace's set, nor do I want it to be marred by worrying about missing the last train.  So I've decided to play safe and drive to Reading as there are plenty of later trains back to Reading, so we can saunter back to Paddington without any pressure.  It's a PITA, but it's a solution.
