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:Thank god I didn't say anything else. I was hammmmmmered beyond belief. I spent many years not drinking and being the designated driver all the time, only recently have I been drinking again - as of yet I haven't learnt not to text or surf the web whilst drunk ... gets me into lots of badness.

What I meant to say was - Only thing to beat it (A bouncy castle) are those inflatable sumo-suits. They're like a bouncy castle you carry on you !

But ... sumo-suits AND a bouncy castle ? Oh, that be all sorts of non-sexual body slamming fun !

Great, now I have the mental image of attending play to see Transformers, Battletech and various anime Mechs all giggling like children on a bouncy castle.

Not what I needed. Get out of my head you silly images !

there's no need to worry about mech - i can handle him... or he'll use it as a way to seek revenge... i'll have to keep my staff in hand at all times methinks... he's not so happy that his sunglasses don't sit on his face right anymore ... cool... ooooops


but anyhoo, i'm thinking i should set up a poll to see who else wants a bouncy castle - research is part of campaigning right?

You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

nope as in me, spanner, i had also forgotten about that photo, oh well, the more worrying part for me, is that no one is paying attention in the background, maybe that means that people have finally gotten used to me being weird.

Chuckney - about losing live's on a bouncy castle, yes you are right, ppl would... so well done!

Tastes like purple - GFY wink you smacked me in the face, im going to [censored] in your pillow this year wink (i would have last year but coudlnt be arsed to find your tent wink)

Dunc - about [censored] time...i have been waiting an age for the dates, going to book them off this morning.

strugz - got problems with the photos call me, its important!

people of all abilities will be at Play. Some will be soo good you'll rub your eyes in disbelief, others will be beginners. It's not all about showing off and looking good. It's about learning new things and having a bloody good time! biggrin bounce
