I thoroughly enjoyed what is alleged to be the last ever GBFF . Favourite act was Oysterband. I loved seeing for the first time Mitchell,Kulesh & Pfeiffer .
Not a bad act was seen . I have a full collection of GBFFs , never missed one ,never had a bad one .
Gutted if it is the last

Was very sorry to hear Skeggy was ending as had enjoyed some great weekends there, but as we have just moved back to Lytham this news couldn’t be better.

One of the benefits of GBFF being held at Butlin's was the convenient accommodation and food hall. Never been to Blackpool Winter Gardens. Do they have similar facilities?

Not at the Winter Gardens as it is purely an entertainment complex. Plenty of hotels and B&Bs close by though. I suspect the shape of the festival will be quite a bit different. Quality places to eat are limited - need to go out of town for that.
