Really surprised to find no mention (as far as I can see) on TAW of this since it was announced a couple of days ago.

On August 15th, Fairport's Youtube channel will be hosting a streaming event including the entirety of RT's and Fairport's sets from 2019 and more besides to be confirmed, concluding with Meet On The Ledge at the appropriate time of the evening.

I know it isn't the same as having the actual festival and I know it isn't live but it is an excellent gesture from the chaps and I am really looking forward to it.

It is indeed! I intend to plonk myself in the garden to watch, to get as near to the experience as possible.

I'll be watching for certain. And seeing how Richard lives in the NY area now, I'll be able to verify if the Rain God myth travels with him  Wink Grin

I was thinking of inviting the neighbours round and have them pitch a shelter between the TV and my seat for extra authenticity. Angry

No, no , no you have to be lined up by yer garden gate ready for the countdown and chariot race to your fav spot. A red faced partner, wife, child should follow up behind picking up various sundries that leap out of yer chariot.

It should end with a smile on yer face and a bellow of *sorted*.

Hire a portaloo and have it installed a few hundred yards from your garden to be used for the duration!
And also one of those wind machines they use on film sets!

I sat through the whole FC set last year - once was enough.

I suppose I'd better get cracking on a tasteless tipple for the Toast.

Hmm, if I make the usual (c.70cl) amount, I can have a glass at Toast time, then the remainder...

no, I won't drink it later in the evening...

... can continue to ferment/fester until 2021.

(I will test it early enough to come up with an alternative if it turns out to be TOO nasty - i.e. anything like that Dracul firewater I brought last year!  Roll Eyes )

Any thoughts on having a virtual collection this year (eg via justgiving or similar platform)?  Or should we wait until next year and donate double on the field (when money MAY not be so tight for some)?  We may need a bigger hat?  Wink

Just realised there's a separate Toast topic. Esteemed Moderators - please feel free to move this if desired...  Smiley
