Posted:Hello everyone and welcome to PLAY FESTIVAL 2007!!



Please forgive me for the lack of info, I have no computer to use and it'll be a few weeks more until I'm able to update it more often. I'll come back and put more up as and when I can.



Hopefully most of this info you'll have gotten from our newsletter, if not sign up to it on the website now! www.playfestival.co.uk



We had a wonderful 5 days last year and can only say that 2007 will be even better!



Thanks to everyone who came last year and who gave us feedback on what they thought of the festival, we've taken all comments on board and hope we can make the festival one that you'll enjoy even more than the last.



The dates for this years festival will be Wednesday 25th - Sunday 29th July and we will be at the same venue, Fordhall Farm in Market Drayton, Shropshire. The tickets will be 35 in advance and 40 on the door, that will include most workshops, 4 nights camping, the shows and other entertainments during the festival



We have lots planned for this years festival, more areas to play in with the emphasis on getting everyone involved, we will have a proper go at the world record after last years attempt didn't go so well (although it does look awesome on video!!!) and of course the usual abundance of workshops to keep you all busy in the day.

We'll have two stages this year, the main stage/tent and and nice little caberet tent, a solar powered cinema, a PROPER bar & food tent and a few more folks selling the stuff you want to buy (even if you don't realise it yet! heheh)



New for this year will be the PLAY HOP Amateur Performance of the year. It's a little competition we've come up with that can be entered by anyone for any type of performance. No more than 4 minutes long with a cash prize for the winner and the chance to feature on the next PLAY DVD. As you might guess from the title the event is sponsored by HomeofPoi.com (who have proudly given us the prizes for our games over the last two years). More details will follow soon...



The DVD of last years festival will be out at some point, probably exactly at the time we plan it to come out wink Focusing more on spreading knowledge to learn the arts than the last DVD and we're sure it'll knock your socks off!



If you want to contact us about anything please email us at one of the following addresses:



info@playfestival.co.uk



comments@playfestival.co.uk



volunteers@playfestival.co.uk



traders@playfestival.co.uk



If anyone wants specific footage from last years festival please wait until after the DVD is out, Strugz & co are busy enough editing the full thing to start making cuts for people! Thanks smile



As my internet access is sporadic at best till my pc is up and running, I might not be able to reply to email straight away, if you want to talk to me about anything call me on 07814 018091 and if you don't get an answer LEAVE A VOICEMAIL!



Keep checking the website for the latest information and we'll send out newsletters as often as we can.





hugs & smiles



Dunc hug

Suggestion/solution: Bouncy only inflated from the late morning to early afternoon, ie before people get too drunk?


ubblol
Dude, have you been to Play before? Chili Vodka for breakfast anyone? wink

The bouncy castle will come with its own staff anyway (who we'd have to pay for) - and they'd be the one letting people on (or not).

Now a ball pool... biggrin

Job of the Bouncy Nazi to ensure everyone gets their quota of bounce, innit?

Also, come on, the kids aren't going to LIVE on the castle for the whole festival! I reckon the kids'll be better-behaved than the "adults" when it comes to safe and fair bouncy fun.

Also also, stop giving the PLAYmasters more reasons to NOT have the bouncy castle already!!

This years staging and lighting is going to be different from last years so "yes" would be an answer wink

while it's up, have a Bouncy Nazi making sure that no-one goes on the bouncy castle with shoes on or in a state of intoxication, on pain of Dave? wink



Also, to make sure no-one goes on after they've eaten, or they'll get indigestion.

Nobody wants a vom-covered bouncy castle.

probably doesn't matter and is too late if they're "off the press" already, but 'diabolo' is spelt like that. you might get some hardcore spanish christians come and sabotage the festival if you spell it 'diablo'.

That's a terrible idea - it'd be a maximum of 5 minutes before it becomes subject to a hostile takeover by contact jugglers who stand in it for the whole festival balancing balls on their faces tongue


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Damn you Rory!! Revealing my plans!!

I vote for ball pool. Not ball Poo. Or a bald Paul. nor even Pool Balls. They're just silly ideas.

Durbs, get a real Job. *slap*

Gotta love ball pools ! I remember one that was 4' deep and got a few people in trouble as it became a groping pit. 6th Formers + Alchohol = Nortyness.

Posted:how about one of those inflatable multiactivity centres you can get, with a ball pool and a bouncy area and a slide and such?

You can get dinky ones from argos for kids or there are HUGE ones for adults, that'll please everybody.

And it would mean we could just slide down and knock the contact jugglers flying if they started hogging the balls.

Maybe we should just have the bouncy castle for one day - at the weekend preferably - to limit costs and noise, and one day of bouncy castling should have only a fifth as many disasters as five days.

And if we want to bouncy on that day we can just not have chili vodka for breakfast, but i guess that would mean planning or thinking which is not the strong point of Play!

Posted:If there is a bouncy castle, and let face it, there better be, otherwise it will be entirely pointless to go to play wink I will personally make a sign that says:

On the Bouncy Castle:
No Kids
No Shoes
No Hard Toys
No Sex

That will make it more fun for all those deserving of being on a bouncy castle: ie: US!

WHy are there no two storey bouncy castles? It's not fair!
