That was great, thank-you to those who organised it. As others have said, good to see last yearís set close up.

I loved the tour of the field and all the t-shirt pics, spotting TAW people...but I am sure I saw one TWICE! (shame we didnít get round to the t-shirts ourselves).

We ought to have a thread of photos from tonight in our various gardens and things . Night all †Smiley

I couldn't watch last night, but I've managed to see most of it this morning. Great to see the sets and the messages. Well done to all who organised the toast etc.

I was fourth one up in the t shirt show. I got covered up pretty fast, though Grin Grin Fez

Don't forget to give your tents a good airing. They'll get mildew from yesterday morning's drizzle otherwise.

My son came round to see us earlier this afternoon. If things had been 'normal' the two of us would have been driving home from Cropredy today. It's strange to think he was 4 years old when we first attended the festival and now he's 40!

Sat in the awning down Devon flicking between Scott Doonicans Cropredy special and the Cropredy Connection, great night of entertainment finishing of with that wonderful version of MOTL. I even got to pack up the caravan this morning in the rain, just like being there!

Thanks to the chaps for a great gig and to Johnny Gale and Nev Bull  for making the connection.

PS does anyone know what the "interval"music (played at the beginning and between video clips) was?
Sure I've heard it before, but can't place it.

Some parts were definitely an instrumental arrangement of  Pink Floydís ĎWish you were hereí ...not sure if that was all the way through, nor by whom it was performed.

Just watched the Fairport set from last night again (3x if you include being there last year) and itís still superb -  all of it (well except maybe Peggy singing Polly on the Shore but, hey I can forgive that seeing as how good the rest was!)

We enjoyed every minute... starting at 2pm in the garden with friends, music, BBQ,
Laughter, chatting, memories and moving indoors later where we toasted and drank and watched avidly,
The whole day and night was just a very special substitute, thanks to everyone that worked hard to bring this to us...

We will never forget it and what a wonderful party we will have on the field next year!
