    July 6th, 7th and 8th.

    This isnt an official meet but more of an open invitation to anyone who enjoys 'amateur' local bands, most very well known in the Scarborough, Whitby and Filey area, and a good time as well.

    if i have an idea of attendees/numbers wishing to attend i should be able to arrange pitches together and on level ground. well as level as possible.

    Camping is included in the admission fee and is on well drained and reasonably level ground.

    click on the websites various link boxes for full details.

    It's my sister-in-law's special 40th birthday party, so no problems next time as she'll probably be 39 next birthday! :BigGrin:

    Looks like a good festival, and I'm tempted seeing as we're now not going to Kelmarsh...:cry:

    It's a good four and a half hours up from Essex though, so we'll give it some thought.

    So it's a definite maybe from us...

    Give me some good reasons pappajohn!

    Steve :Smile:

    well Steve, it's in it's fourth year and the other three were a sell-out before the event so that speaks volumes for the event.
    each year gets better.....security being one point.
    the first two years were a bunch of farm hands walking around, now it's a professional security firm, on the gate, in the camping field and in the arena.
    the sound system gave up the ghost last year towards the end and a new one has been installed so the music is as it should be...loud and clear.
    wide variety of music covering rock, pop, ballads, choir, folk, Irish and they even had a lone piper last year, thats when the sound system went down :Doh:
    food and drink have also been improved with a wider variety of both, including the local micro brewery, 'Wold top'....excellent real ale apparently.
    the sun does shine :Cool:...a lot last year but cant guarantee it this year :Doh:
    the atmosphere is fun and friendly with no trouble.
    only £32pp for 3 full days of fun and music (inc camping)
    and we will be there :thumb:


    downsides are...

    Essex is a long way
    public transport aint so good if you want to visit Scarborough...maybe one bus an hour but not sure.
    nearest proper shop is 3 miles away if you need supplies in an emergency, but there is a garage with shop for milk etc just down the road (3/4mile) and i may be able to borrow the M/C's car if desparate...after all, he is my son in law :thumb:
    no glass bottles/glasses allowed in the 'arena' but nobody checks your bag and everyone takes wine/beer etc
    no smoking in the 'arena' due to the 'straw bale' seating fire risk....but again, everyone who smokes does anyway.

    grabbed you interest yet ? :Wink::Laughing:
