Good luck to the organisers but not for us. Location, accommodation costs, parking...

Think we might make the effort. Decent line-up already and it's a bit closer than Skegness Also, based on our one experience of East-Coast Butlins, the accommodation, however it might pan out, has to be an upgrade, that's for sure.

When looking at accommodation, may be worth looking down the coast at St Annes where hotels likely to be better value/quality. Decent bus service to centre of Blackpool. Also far better places to eat and drink in Lytham and St Annes

Cara Dillon has tweeted today that she has pulled out "owing to unforeseen circumstances"

That leaves a huge hole in Saturday night unless they bring someone else in

Apparently, Louise & Chris Regan are doing a second set on Saurday, so a) saving money & b) not giving us equivalence of Cara.

Words will be had.

No, he’s playing Isle of Wight on Saturday and the Brook on Sunday.

Steve Harley's new year message on his website probably explains a lot....

2023 has not exactly been an annus horibilis for me, as the first half was often magical, with some great nights on stage with Barry, Oli and David. And the full rock band in Holland and Belgium, and Denmark….out there, on the road, that’s where I come alive.

The second half, well…cancelling Live dates is heartbreaking. I’m aware of the stress and financial strain it can place On you.

But I’m fighting a nasty cancer. My oncologist is pleased with the treatment’s effects so far. It’s tiresome, and tiring. But the fight is on. And thankfully the cursed intruder is not affecting the voice. I sing and play most evenings
