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

How true. Never thought I would be interested in fire-staff until I picked one up at the Tapooka stall at Play 2006. Now I am a converted Staffer and am in the process of building my own. Roll on Play2007!!!

No it means some workshops might cost a few pounds depending on what they are. We will hopefully have more than solely object manipulation dedicated workshops, there will be healing, kids entertainments and lots of others that might need a donation to cover the expenses of the workshop hosts especially as this is often their only form of income.

But don't worry, the majority will be free as always thanks to the wonderful contributions made by those who come to PLAY smile

I have the wrong time booked off and may not be able to get these dates as most of the people in my office have put in for their summer holidays already.

*temporary fear reliever*

Having just spoken to Strugz, he's as surprised as everyone else at the new date, especially given as he has an e-mail from Mr Dunc saying it's going to be the 25-29th.

We'll probably find out in a few minutes smile

**OFFICIAL DATES**

Dunc made a boo-boo when putting the dates up (but doesn't hace internet access at the moment so can't change his post).

The proper dates are:
25th - 29th July
i.e. the week before the EJC and the week after Glade (not a bad 3 weeks all-in-all wink )

Indeed you will

*coughs*

It seems that there was a tiny technical error with the date and it is indeed 25th-29th July. I blame the computer and my dislexic keyboard who didn't type the date that I told it to type wink

I should admit the error was my fault entirely, and indeed it is, but if you feel you have to continue to blame Strugz please carry on, he doesn't mind, really, he was just telling me that he likes taking the blame on my behalf so away you go...
