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

Posted:Ok guys, i can tll you what i know about working tickets:



*this is the current situation, but it may change*



The last couple of years weve given out alot of tickets to people to help out, what we have found is that some work thie ass off, others just sit around, we even have people who buy tickets that do more work voluteering than people supposed to be workng there.



Im not whineing here im just want eveyone to benefit who puts the effort in.



So, this year everyone will buy a ticket........



Those of you that want to work can, you will be assigned a few jobs a day, if there all done you get refunded smile



This is the only way we could see of doing this to make people efforts noticed and rewarded fairly for stuff they do.



Any questions or complaints please call.........erm... Dunc wink



(or the rest of the play team)



ubbrollsmile



i hope that clears anything up.

Can I come down a couple of days early to work off some of my ticket before PLAY proper gets started?

So many times I wanted to borrow someone's baby for isolations.

And one kid remarked how I was wearing the same shoes as his mum! (Hey Froggy! biggrin)

There always seems to be telltale signs of practice anyway ... wink

No, really Sparklygreenfire, children aren't a problem- infact its probably a kids paradise- run around, throw things, be silly. Thats what all the adults are doing most of the time as well smile

Well, I know my son gets well into his spinning when he's surrounded by it...he's grown up around Strugz for a start, he can't watch him without wanting to play. He even has his own miniature doubles which (I think) were Strugz first attempt at making staffs? Correct me if I'm wrong Mr Strugnell? They're tiny...just the right size for Aidan to play with. He loves it, got quite good at it too...he just needs to pick it up again now the weathers back!!
Aidan is on one of the first Vids that were available for download on Soton fire site...can't remember which one tho?

I really enjoyed getting there first last year and helped set up, and going near last and helped take stuff down. It feels like you're getting double the festival! It's awesome smile

P.S- where's the dvd? wink

Posted:he did indeed Neon, bless him. I took both my boys last year (aged 5 and 12) they bloody well loved it. the only time we had tears was when we had to leave. I was very nervous about taking them as the idea of me and my two boys in a tent miles away from home scared me with the usual fears us parent have of " what happens if they play up"etc
they didn't infact i didn't have to tell them off once for the whole time. they kept themselves busy and within sight and had loads of fun.

are there going to be family tickets? i can not remember if i have asked or not
