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!

It was my wife (Bel) first ever proper object manipulation wink fest and she's now hooked due to the friendly nature of you lot (give yourselves a pat on the back) and she even learnt a few new tricks.... (not those sort of tricks!!!)

thankx

Posted:woooooooooooooooooooooooooo...........................my god, well over 250 posts....................not going to even try to read them all so sorry about that.



what can i say thats not been said already..........................thanks to dunc, sym, jo and george. thanks to all tha wicked people i met over the 7 days i was at play (sorry, i met so many amazing people it's too much to list)



personally i think a special thanks shoud go out to all the "behind the scenes" crew.............pixi productions, bassline circus, the chocolate tree and sencory solutions.



i'm soooo sorry i have no energy to thank all the people i've met and made friends with over the time i was there, if i met you and you remember me then i'm sooo glad to have met you and hope to see you all at other events and next year at PLAY 2007:D



i cant even begin to thank sharn enoughg for the lift back to cambridge....................sorry i didn't have enough money to chip in for petrol but i'm sure when our paths next cross i'll sort you out in some way wink



dunc and george................what can i say...................thank you so much for the invite, meeting you and family, sym and jo..............possibly the soundest people i've met in a long time.



simta and eddy thanks for the help setting the stage up. biggrin



what else can i say.......................everyone i met was amazing in more ways than one............pigeon, vixen and froggy........you gave me the biggest and best hugs the entire event right when i needed them the most hughug2



blu, mynci, lilmiss and baby lee...................sorry i didn't get to spend more time with you and get mashed up but there's always next PLAY wink



len and P and the kids....................wicked to meet you all, matt (asena) and Co (can you tell i'm so tired i cant remember much) was great meeting you all.



i think the biggest shout out should go to dave the farmer that even contemplated letting one of his fields out to a bunche of "dirty stinking hippys"ubblol and to the sound and stage crew plus ALL the performers you did a wicked job biggrin



i really hope to see some of you soon, weather it be a free party or somewhere else, your all wicked and possibly the safest crew i've met in a long time cool



dunc (polarity) mate................you are the safest, smartest and generally soundest bloke i've had the pleasure of meeting hug



to all the "blaggers" that turned up to help just to get a free ticked then do [censored] all for the rest of the event (you know who you all are) SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!spank

I hope you all feel better soon. Remeber to drink lots of fluids. Dehydration is usually the thing that makes you feel like you are dying when you've been vomiting. Dioralyte is the way to go for rehydration.
