This will, as always, be a complete blast and if you can do so, please do come along. Wendy and I and our friend Jayne will be the mad stewards, along with many sane ones, helping you all around the site.

Im seriously considering this one but can anyone tell me what goes with the Wednesday and Thursday ( 5 day ticket) ? Not sure about a 5 dayer with restricted holidays off work ? What a fab line up . What a superb audience. ?

On the Wednesday there is an excellent barbecue and Morris dancing. A good chance to meet up with friends, a bit like the Pavilion meet up at Cropredy.
On the Thursday there are a lot of smaller acts playing and general sessions at the bar.

Thursday's music last year started at 11.00 a.m. and went on till 23.00 p.m.  A brilliant day.  There are also some lovely walks to be had in the area.

I am hoping we get to this one next year.  Oysterband and 3 daft monkeys, means my missus is interested. The only questions my wife has is "what are the toilets like?, and can you park next to your tent?"

Hi, to those who remember us (and hi to those who dont) been quiet for far too long, had a busy year moving from the midlands to glorious Pen Llyn, thats the pointy bit of the Snowdonia Coast in North Wales. and getting to grips with our first property renovation, pleased to say thats all done and dusted now, money's in the bank and we are looking for our next project.
We decided not to do Cropredy this year but have done the Wintour and the Spring tour (at a small local venue that was fantastic), we are, however coming to the New Forest, We booked it when it was first announced, Ralphy, Reg, Merry Hell and more, it was a no brainer but with no campervan or caravan we are roughing it at the Premier Inn, will be there sometime Thursday to star sampling the produce, Bonus is, Angela is happy to be on taxi duty. looking forward to meeting up again. cheers for now from a rather wet Cymru. Mark and Angela
