Well, hello hello wave

Woodford Folk Festival is going to be BRILLIANT this year! I've just come back from the Organisers Group Meeting/ Programme Launch totally excited bounce



The site looks sooo beautiful, more spacious and green, and the lineup of acts and performers is just, really *stunning*... 300 different events every DAY!!! for the 6 days; it is the best lineup I have ever seen in my 13 years there (including YES, the Cat Empire!)



AND.... clap bounce2 ubblol bounce2 clap TWO CIRCUS venues: the *Palace* for performances all day, and a brand new space: *Circadia*, in a magnificent spot in the heart of the festival, totally for workshops, including EVERY NIGHT with TePOOKa, other great spinners, and plenty of space and time for juggle!! JUGGLE JAM !!weavesmiley space!!! ubbtickled ubbtickled PLAYTIME at UberWoodford!!





OK is that enough! Get the idea!! Get the tickets organised peoples, or volunteer (plenty of places left) for 5 hrs a day in return for a free ticket...and come on up... it is gonna be WONDERFUL!!

Posted:Now, the second thing is getting yourself a ticket...



This year the ticket sales have been capped... for the first time ever. If you want to come, buy your ticket





Day tix will be released in November.



The prices may sound high but remember it is for 6 days and it is a huge festy with amazing diversity. It's like about 10 festivals happening concurrently.



The other way to come is as a volunteer in which case you work for 5 hours a day and have the rest of your time to play... the application process is all online now, so go for it! (Tilly who does Camp Wardens has a post a few down from this)

Posted:if anyone wants to be a 'Happy Camper' (camp warden) i am managing the volunteers for this department.



welcome the job involves being out in the camp grounds and talking to patrons, most of whom are pretty excted to be there and happy to do as asked.



one advantage of working here (apart from the other marvelous people) is that if you can come up early (i.e xmas eve or xmas day), and don't mind working long hours on boxing day and the first day of the fest, you can actually work the majority of you hours in those first 2 days, which means you get more time during the fest. which means more time for juggle and beerchug

i would love to have HoPpers on the team as everyone i have through gabe are awesome!



you will still need to apply via the volunteers website , but let me know who you are and i'll keep an eye out when i a processing the applications thankx

Posted:I will be there as a non-performing pleb again, and lovin' it. But I will definitely drop by the juggle jam space frequently. biggrin

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Unfortunately It seesm as though our propossal for Woodford wasnt accepted by the commitee. I am however hoping to be part of Te Pooks thing, although We are not sure of entry for the rest of Solar (another 3).
So if any group is looking for 4 professional performers to be part of their thing please let me know. I am really looking forward to Woodford, but cant really leave the rest of my troup out in the 'cold' I doubt its gonna be that!!

I'll PM you! I am going up to an organisers meeting next weekend.. the program is pretty much set but I am happy to talk tto the right peeps about if in case someone drops out...But if there is not a way through being performers and your gang can come up early, then there is always the option of volunteering...remember our housemate Tilly?

Posted:Has anyone got any tips on how to get there?? I'm relying on the ever faithful public transport system (breath still being held.....perhaps I should stop) and my two feet and a heartbeat. I think I need to be there early as I've been selected as a volunteer so I think there's some orientation with that. Any advice would be welcome.

Cheers

Posted:Hey Docta wave
Public transport will take you to Caboolture railway station. There isn't much in a way of bus service prior to the Festival from there to the site (about 25 kms) though there is a shuttle from Boxing Day throughout the Festy. Hitching possible, the road is straightforward, but arranging a lift from Brisvegas is probably the easiest... The Dept Head for whatever Dept you are volunteering may well know who else is coming from your area... and also of course check with them about when/where the orientation is... first shift times etc.
If your orientation is on Boxing Day plan to get there as early as possible cos sometimes there are queues. They are trying to fix the gate system from last year's chaos but I would plan to come early if at all possible, even Christmas afternon if you can get a lift (I am assuming the Vol gate is open then, it usually is. It is NOT open for the general public though!!)
See you in the Circus tent! Or at Piazza Juggle Jam! smile

Posted:Most probably absolutely utterly yes. For a couple of weeks beforehand too.. if you can swing the time off work. Best thing is to apply via the Volunteers online registration.

Meanwhile I'll talk to me site manager mate, OK.



Be great to have you there! hug

Internet service provider person?? as a volunteering job?



There is sometimes an internet cafe set up on site, in past years I believe it has been (volunteer) staffed by students from ...?? If you want to volunteer for any area though, still follow the link a few posts up..



and see you in the Circus space in your spare time! You too Dexta... a long journey!!

Posted:I've just come back from the Woodford Festival Programme launch, and organising group meeting and there is quite WONDERFUL news about circus spaces! There will be two big spaces.. one Big Top called the Palace, with performances, AND a second, called Circadia...which is dedicated for all day playspace, workshops and juggle jam!! A childrens focus in the day, and at night...te POOKa and everyone who wants to come play!!!



It is located in a most perfect spot... right in the middle of the festival, on a big beautiful space that was the site of lots of ceremony and sacred dance at the Dreaming festival earlier this year. I stood there tonight with the huge circle of trees all around and saw shooting stars and said YAY!!! Everything I wanted for this space has been given! Thanks programmers! Thanks everyone who will come to play!! Thanks stars and trees!!
