Just dug the tickets out to put on the packing pile.  I assume the 2020 camping sticker will be honoured  Grin  I was early enough buying in 2019 to get a car sticker too, which is also dated 2020.  Not sure if I'll bother putting that one in the window though.

I wouldn't miss the toast for anything. Its an important part of the pre Cropredy ritual for me to concoct a safe but weird beverage. Each year I try for a distinctive taste. Only the year it was based on Carvonia and Camp Coffee mixed with rum was it truly repulsive.

I've trawled all the available weather forecasts.

All agree it will be 27 and mostly sunny on Saturday , one (accuweather) is alone in forecasting a 40% chance of an isolated light afternoon shower.

Its OK.

You are underestimating the Thompson effect.
How many forecasts have factored in that very important element??

Ok everyone…..LISTEN UP (please). Amethyst has posted in the relevant thread, but I thought I’d highlight it here.

THE TOAST. It’s an important part of Cropredy for many…including fundraising for TCT…..and we’ve our Adrian to remember this year too.

Have people been making their own drain cleaner to bring? What’s the vote on the time - 8.00pm clashes with RT

Who is going to make the toast?

Collective ideas please……


Hi Diane, (and Amethyst) as long as DV doesn’t insist on me testing his concoction before we all congregate, I’ll be there, sadly no Josh as he is elsewhere this august.
How about 7:30 straight after Matthews Bateman experience?

Edit just seen in the toast thread that time and toaster have been sorted. See you all at 7:30 then  Fez Fez Fez

Any chance of a new board (or whatever you call it) for Cropredy so we can have separate posts on different subjects please?  Tiara

As I shall be driving to and from the Tuesday warmup and thus unable to have a few pints, I thought I'd have my own warmup for the warmup...

Will there be a sanctioned radio broadcast of this year's festival?  If so, will the broadcast be accessible (live and/or in an archive) via the Internet?

Radio Oxford are broadcasting Cropredy from 6pm to 1am and I believe it's accessible worldwide on BBC Sounds.

In reply to an earlier post re faded tickets: Mine have been cosseted too but I've just noticed one is part-faded (the bottom one of a stack of 6, in the original envelope, in a hanging file, in a filing cabinet for 2 years - go figure!).  
A bit late for an exchange and I reckon the barcode is still readable but I'm bringing my ticket purchase confirmation email just in case!

Good point. I've got my "croucher" but 2 hours on it may be a bit much...

Peggy told me that Merry Hell were not booked because they have too similar a following to Fairport's and would not therefore put many on the gate.

I don't accept that as true , but its what he believed at the time. If Gareth wants to see how popular they are then he needs to be what will be one of the hundreds unable to get into the Brasenose Garden next Thursday

As for stridently expressing politics....Jewel in the Crown anyone?


Merry Hell are what they are - they wear their hearts on the sleeves and their lyrics are explicitly 'of the Left'.  I'm not suggesting this is related to the bands/organisers politics, but, well, eh, know (some of) your audience, I suppose...(sadly).


As others have pointed out…….many wear their political hearts on their sleeves. Try listening to Martyn Joseph as well….

Folk music has ALWAYS had a ‘Leftist’ leaning.


I just ignore "leftist" drivel and utter "rightist" drivel!!!

We’ve bought a couple of folding camp chairs for the field but we don’t intend to lug them through our 12 days of Scottish travels after the festival. If anyone would like a pair of “only used 4 days” chairs let me know and we can meet up Sunday…..

Also we are coming into Banbury by train mid-morning  to early afternoon on Wednesday if anyone else is going through Banbury around then and would like to share taxi costs into Cropredy let me know.

It’s hard to believe it’s only a few days away….we’ve booked airfare and hotel accommodations three times now for this festival. I haven’t let myself get too excited thinking everything could be canceled again at the last minute. But we are definitely on the other side of the pond now and so looking forward to being back on the field!
