Play Festival - 23-27 July 08 [CANCELLED], Wales

Anyone else heading to this one, seems like a good'un if a lot of people are up for it. This is the only thing I can almost definately say I'll be at with school finished and all the rest of it. It isn't expensive either :)

Any takers?

It is with deep regret and much sadness that we announce PLAY Festival 2008 has been cancelled due to bad weather over last weekend during the Workhouse Festival. The site is no longer habitable and will remain so for the next 8-10 weeks at least.

We have searched high and low for a new venue but at such short notice we have been unable to find anything that is compatible with our requirements, also as we are now (Wednesday 9th July) within 10 working days of the event a new license cannot be arranged in time to ensure the festival takes place on the original dates and remains legal. We have contemplated postponement but to re-arrange six months work in such a short time just isn't feasible at this point due to other peoples commitments.

We thank each and everyone one of you who have contributed to this years festival; be you a ticket buyer, volunteer, crew member, trader or performer. Your heart felt messages are a huge help for us getting through this difficult time. We will be issuing refunds as soon as possible and the shop is now closed.

On a brighter note, we are planning to hold one or two smaller events later this year and early next year to raise funds towards 2009's festival. If you have any suggestions for location, events or anything else feel free to get in touch via the contact page.

Funty, I just booked my train ticket breadbin.  £12.50 to get to Stoke and back to Bristol, getting there Monday, coming back the following Monday, all gooood.

On another note the rolecall seems something like:

Myself
Funty
Dunc
Alex
Leo (finally)
Andy
Hathaway?
Olive?
A late entrant in the form of Chiok

No doubt some other forumites I'll meet for the first time.

FAO Leo, Fight The Bear are still negotiating playing which is all good.  I'm hoping the live music is a bit more prominent than I think it might be. 

Oh yeah there'll be some 10am Tai Chi which I'm more than up for, hangover or not.  I'll see If I still feel the same closer to the time.
