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

I'd guess that's why.



Guy has a long running feud with the Mortgage Bankers Association after an unfortunate incident with their board of directors, some spaghetti and a greased fork.

Honour demands they make Guy pay for what happened so he'll be spending at least half of his time at Play fending off the waves of ninja they send after him instead of going to workshops.



Oh, also, I think Play is being organised for the last weekend in July again. I'm sure I've read that in some other thread, but I can't remember which one.

Posted:ubblol Bov, I wish it was your version: it sounds a lot more fun!

in fact that would be a Masters of Business Administration frown

I get three weeks off in easter, and one week at the end of august...

unless I get creative with time when I'm supposed to be studying...

I guess I'll have to see where I am at that point in the year: It could be possible to make the friday evening (read early morning), saturday and sunday

Still, without a date, it's all academic shrug

Posted:can we answer that question in a week or 3? by the end of february.... we're just discussing whether we actually have the time to make PLAY happen this year, and to make it better for all involved.

a lot of the infrastructure is in place, so if we do go ahead, it'll all happen quickly, don't fret. I hope you understand why we need to take our time to make the right decision.

Posted:if play does go ahead and I have to do even two shows... then it won't be a practise festival for me and I'd much rather do some work. Volunteering on the gate / being a bitch / organising in some capacity / filming / heavy lifting / shouting at people etc... work like that you know?

3 shows + 3 workshops + 3 days does not make for a relaxing festival, so I'd rather go the opposite way and go all out on the 'not-practising' side.
