Location: Maenporth Beach



Accomodation: Tregedna Farm Campsite (the other one for those of you who attended Falmouth 1 or 2)



Duration: Thursday evening - Sunday evening



Attractions: A beautiful beach, (hopefully) glorious weather, a big feckin fire, more beer and smoke than you can shake several large sticks at, and a bunch of lunatics playing with fire.



Throw in a few workshops, the obligatory 8 mile hike, and yer talkin' heaven.



For those who have not attended a Falmouth event before, there are videos of the last two here and here.



This may well be the only Falmouth event this year, as us Cornish types will all be going to the Play Festival in August - and recommend that you do too!

Im not sure Falmouth Town is closer to the site, the only reason why we are getting off at falmouth town is cos Mags has offered to pick us up Jon, supposedly his house is a few miles away from the beach, whereas i reckon falmouth docks would be closer

Falmouth Docks are the other side of Falmouth to the campsite/beach that we are going to, thats why you wanna get off in the town! smile

When i say "pick you up" i mean, "walk the 100 yards from my house to the station and meet you". We'll get a lift out with Brad in his motor. smile

You do NOT want to go to Falmouth docks, it's smelly and nowhere near the campsite. I can be reached on 07929 611696 if anyone gets lost or owt, but i'll be off to the site about 6pm and probably wont have any reception from then on.

I will however have a huge amount of ganj. Huzzah!

Rock on poiples, see you all tomoz.

Lack of money, due to the little money I had having been spent outside of my control, means I can't come to Falmouth. Completely skint and really gutted about not meeting people for the first time, Cantus and Firepoise in particular.

I just packed.....there is no space left for anything and I already think I have too much stuff. I can't fit the bubble machine in....... and I might have to take out the face paints....... I'll have to wear my wig and wings all the way....... why can't I learn to minimalist pack? Thank god I'm not camping or I'd have to hire a trailer for Sarah's car!

Skully's making me wanna go out and get Wild stuff to bring to dress up in and I'm usually such a minimalist packer (too many nights working away) and we've only got a minibus for 12 HoPpers eek there's no way it's all going to fit in with toys n tents n shizznit. Ah what the... you only live once. I hear Affleck's Palace calling....

Minimaniac - Cornwall is somewhat further than Swindon!!!!

Spanner, was looking forward to meeting you cos you know The Scientist n Trippie Hippie - maybe another time huh?

2 MORE SLEEPS!! *note to self - Go to bed early!*
