The 'unobtrusive percussionist'


« on: January 08, 2020, 11:37:57 PM »

Although this is only 45 mins from us we have never done the whole fest , just gone in to the town for the , very good, fringe events.
This year the fest has moved to a new site in the town , next to the castle.
Early lineup looks good and early bird tickets go on sale on 14 th Jan.
I think we may give this a punt this Yr.
A 5000 people ish fest but the town itself gets really busy with free events.

It's close enough to me to daily commute Cheesy

I don't know the reason for moving site (it generally sells out, so unless they're looking to increase numbers, I can't see the temporary structures on the new field being any better than the fewer structures on the old site *plus* proper theatre & other school buildings on the old. I guess the school has probably out-priced the festival.

Chris, Their blurb just gives , ‘closer to town and more accessibility’ as reasons for the move.

Article in local press gives development of original school site reducing area available to festival  as one reason for relocation.

that's quite likely/possible - I wonder whether they'll still use the school theatre? It's not far to walk from astle park - certainly only about the same as into the town itself

Yep, that makes sense. Thanks Steve.
