TICKETS UPDATE 11th April 2006

==============================



TICKETS ARE NOW ONSALE!! bounce You can follow this link to the online Shop to make your purchase. If you buy a ticket with the forthcoming DVD you will get a 3 discount. Please note that the price of 25 will only be valid until the 13th June









Finally, we have a venue for play biggrin

Thanks for being so patient, the location for PLAY is now confirmed as being at Fordhall Farm, Market Drayton, Shropshire. TF9 3PS



The gates will be open from 10am Thursday 22nd June until 6pm Monday 26th June (yes that's FIVE days biggrin ) and will cost the princely sum of 25 in advance and 30 from two weeks prior to the festival. The tickets will be on sale from Sunday 2nd April right up until the event. The ticket price covers all facilities and events once onsite (bar, food & drink etc excluded of course) all workshops, the show(s), the childrens creche area etc etc etc



A beautiful organic farm set in the countryside (although 5 minutes from the town of Market Drayton) that will make for the most wonderful setting for this years (and hopefully many more) PLAY Festival.

(Please visit the Fordhall Farm website, they need to raise 600,000 by July 2006 to stop this beautiful fertile place from becoming yet another industrial development, if you can help their cause please do so hug )



It has great links to the M6 motorway via the A53 and for non car users we will post all info about the local transport situation asap. There isn't a train station that's particularly close but we will be laying on a PLAY Bus to make collections to/from the station as often as possible to help everyone out. There may be a very small charge for this (ie a quid or two) to cover the cost of the driver etc.



I will keep this post updated and of course keep your eyes on the PLAY Website and forum for the most up to date information.



If you could keep your questions in the PLAY Forum we'd much appreciate it as it will help us keep some control and ensure we answer as many as possible. It'll save Malcolms badwidth a little too.....



Hope to see you all there!

Posted:My brain hurts frown

Sorry to anyone who I drunkenly giggled at in the early hours of the morning (Meg - I have a vague idea that this comment should be aimed in your direction).

I've learned many silly things and pretty much nothing constructive.

The whole weekend is a bit hazy but from what I can piece together...

Will - Congratulations on realising who I was on monday morning wink
Chris (dub) - Hope you're feeling better dude.
Strugz - Next year I guess you'll be leaving the driving to someone else wink
Cole - Hearing you telling the people in your workshop about Hugo's inverted stall trick made me laugh. I still cant do it! That boy is not normal.
Ravehead - good to meet you man. I'll be seeing you in a forest some time soon no doubt biggrin
CrazyHippyChic (I think) - I'll let you guys know when I'm in Stoke and sort stuff for a big manchester bbq smile

A general big thank you to everyone that camped with us.
Same to everyone who didnt.

Posted:I would list a whole bunch of thank you's but I feel that may take too long and I'd maybe leave someone important out and that would never do.

I do want to however want to say a few words about the crew that worked so hard before, through and after the festival.

Thank you Dunc for coming up with the idea of Play and for setting it up. hug

To Sym I want to say thank you for all your hard work and for all your diplomacy that smoothed over a few raw nerves. You made the best of things even when plans went a little bit off the rails, so much so that I don't think most of the people attending even noticed. That's a sure sign you were doing a lot of things right. hug

To Rossco I want to say, way to go with listing, timing and sorting out all the workshops. Not an easy task I'm sure. Thank you hug

Matty B I don't think I once saw you sitting still the whole weekend. You worked like a carthorse from start to finish. It didn't go unnoticed. Thank you. hug

To all those people that donned a yellow crew t-shirt (too many to mention by name) and helped out, Thank you! You cleaned toilets, cooked food, collected rubbish, lifted, carried, built, dismantled, piped in water..... etc. All of which I thank you all for doing. Without you people there would be no Play. grouphug

Gayle and Neal, huge thanks for setting up the stall, running it and making being around it feel so chilled and so much fun. hug hug

Jon you know all I need to say to you ubblove hug Sorry you missed the football kiss

Mech... No perving on my Nieces ubblol Sorry hun, I just couldn't resist. kiss It was so great to finally meet Soph. She really is as gorgeous as you have always told me she is.

My last thank you is to all the people that I had fun with this weekend. To all you people that came to hoop with us and play games Thank you! I hope you all had as much fun as I did. Keep spreading the love of the wiggle!!! hug

Roll on next years Play!

what an amazing few days!! :-) had the most awesome time down at play and im definately coming back next year..! thanks to all who taught and generally inspired me over the days of workshops and shows, and lots of uberly-fluffy hugs to all those i met and bounced around with, especially the cool peeps i met for the first time :-) i ache so much now from excess cartwheeling and flipping with staffs but i have so much new stuff to be practising so it's all peachy ;-p

one thing would make my overall rating of the fest go from 99.9% enjoyment to 100% and that would be if anyone has got home and realised they have an extra staff or one they picked up by mistake.. its an extra heavy contact staff, metal finish with pinky/purple stripes going diagonally up the length of the staff and only twice-burned wicks so in pretty good condition.

it was put down for a minute before the start of the world record attempt and cunningly vanished so guessing someone borrowed it and forgot about it. if anyone has it please can you pm me on here or on the play site and let me know, for that thing i'd travel to china so dont mind coming and collecting it and seeing a new part of the uk :-) reward is set at a pack of chocolate muffins, a pint and a hug..

that aside, play was amazing and i'm already looking forward to next year!

peace n pineapples
