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

Hey, spotted (and purchased) at Beckton Sainsbury's... Caramel tim tams!



You, are a star. But Beckton is a bit far to travel from Manchester though, just for Tim Tams.



Dale, the dreaded Tesco appear to do caramel Tim Tams.

Posted:Jo - spooky, that's exactly what i've done wink

Workshop list... I've timetabled...*goes away to check*...44 of the 68-ish that are happening, but this will probably change as I need to know more things for certain, for example whether we're running workshops Weds afternoon or Sunday (Probably not is the answer).
Also - i'm already running out of slots, and this is with up to 3 workshops running at a time, anymore will just get silly smile

But hopefully, this'll all be done by the end of the week (by when I should have 90% of workshops confirmed) and i'll stick it up somewhere for you all to look at.

Mynci - Blackboard won't even fit Thursday morning on at the current rate. I'm looking into other ways of displaying all the info - I want to have more than "Juggling : 1pm" on show...

Posted:I just found Caramel Tim Tams at my local Sainsbury's.

Len and Mech, thanks for leting everyone know about that. I had never seen them over here before so contacted Arnott's themselves who said they were available from over 400 Sainsbury stores accross the country. They made no mention of other stores in Britain that you can buy them from.
As Tesco's is nearer to me, will check them out tomorrow smile

Posted:hay guys, girls and everyone. I haven't been able to find a list of the stalls that there will be at Play. I was looking to see if there was going to be someone selling monkey fists and ball chains. I broke mine a while ago and still haven't got around to buying new ones. I really want some for Play but i think by the time i buy them from here, HOP, it will be too late. anyone know anything to help me?

teehee, all this searching and offering of tent spaces, someone should invent some silly tent games, like i dunno, tent tag? something to involve swapping tents on a regular and completely random basis... biggrin wink ubbrollsmile
