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!

I know. He is such a girl. He may have just been having a moody (this happens often) so I will talk to him about it again later. I would just go without him but I really couldn't cope with that right now, so it's his decision.

As for suggestions- no idea. There are obviously legitemate reasons for not having showers on site. Personally I am happy as long as there is running water.

I think I need to remind this man how often he has been to Glastonbury/Reading festivals......

Thanks Sym.



Would it help if the Pirate Fairy Crew offered a wet flannel washing service?

Imagine a few tutu and wing clad Fairies with eye patches armed with wet sponges and flannels, washing over the slightly smelly/dirty Play festival goers as they stand in a paddling pool of cool water. Kind of like a valet car wash but for humans. 50p a wash over ubblol Any money raised to go towards the NSPCC/Amnesty International/Greenpeace or some such charity.

What could be better on a hot day than a cool rinse followed by sun drying? ubbrollsmile

Ahha. But I've already done that this week already. And doing it again would mean expulsion. Which I can't afford to stuff. Mostly 'cos my 'rents would break my legs as many times as feaseably possible.

Yay!

That's not such a bad idea. Why not set up something like that to raise money for the farm . . . ?

As totally up for that as I would be we'd still have to find a way to dispose of the grey water, unless you all don't mind sharing one sheep dip?? wink

Posted:If we were to use only Biodegradeable soap and we poured the grey water down the sinks that you say will be there, is that not ok?



I know biodegradeable soap isn't a total solution , but I don't see us washing people over in a paddling pool being any different to people washing up dishes with normal washing up liquid or having a strip wash in the sinks you will provide.



I don't want to cause an argument about it though, so if you say no go, we won't do it.

Posted:Skully, It's more to do with the amount of water that comes from the showers. Even a low rate shower used up 2.5 gpm, so trying to get rid of over 6000 gallons of water a day is the hard bit.

The sinks will have a drain that goes in to a ditch. It's not going to be 100% organic, as (most) washing up liquid isn't, but it'll be a very small amount.

I don't see that your idea will be a problem - just keep an eye on how flooded the site gets wink

I think it's a great idea, and you should go for it smile I'll try to set somewhere aside for you smile
