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

Oh, I dunno about that.. I mean, there's all kinds of possibilities... "Just got up stretch", "dancing to that awful "reach for the stars" song", "the y and the a from the YMCA dance", "my favoured team has just gained an advantage over their opposition", "I am a player on a team and I have just gained an advantage over our opponents", (for the cultured) "5th position", "lead singer in a metal band receives crowd adulation", "me, me! ME! I know the answer Sir!", "you threw that frisbee right over my head" and many others, there could easily be an hour's workshop right there..

i was thinking more about rouge as the memebr of the x-men i would far preffer



sor a start, she would power up from storm, so that we had the weather control. However she would be able to absord bother power to bring with her, for example, she could gain that of cyclops eyes, and so provide fire for the weekend for us.



she could take speed from another so that she could help avoid accients, wolvereens claws, to help in cooking, and to help in any set up, she would not be worried about egtting cuts or thorns in her.



strength from the tin man, to set up the stage.



come on think bigger wink

... now what do you do at a spinning festival full of X-men... there'd be no room left for proper spinners like... um... nah...can't think of anyone at the moment but there are definately some out there maybe not in THIS thread ubblol


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

wolvereens claws, to help in cooking



<geeky pedant/> Wolverine's power is his super-quick healing, she wouldn't be able to steal his claws</geeky pedant>

(ok, I admit it, the "</geeky pedant>" never really happens... )

eek

*pours death from pre-opened can all over Mech*

Actually, my favourites come from both sides of the Marvel/DC split, so I'm not really too bothered. Just don't insult Batman again wink

I wouldn't worry about the weather - Play'll be awesome regardless of the weather smile

mate

batman is as gay as they come, for a start he has style, and finess, also he is a drama queen, and loves to over act

secondly everything he owns matches, and accessories perfectly!

he belt matches his logo, his car matches his hat, his hat matches his boots, his plane matches his car

come on the guy know fashion, and he is UBER gay

and yes i would say this to his face, i know who he really is
