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 first saw a version of that many years ago on a clip from Saturday Night Live, and you're right, it can be cooler, I remember the SNL guy doing a lot more climbing around inside his costume so as to really confuse where you thought his arms and legs were (well, either that or he was the most completely awesome hand balancer ever.. either way..)

Got me... Maybe that's his real act, he's hoping to win "America's got (publicity hungry wastes-of-space without any) talent" with his removable-lens glasses act...


A wise man once said: "You have two ears and one mouth, therefore you should shut the censored up and listen" (though, to be fair, he might not've put it _quite_ like that..)

Posted:UCOF's explanation of "It's most like a penguin bar. But the biscuit isn't as dense. Making it much better for drinking with"
That pretty much sums them up.
They are Australian, made by the oz equivilant to McVities. Unfortunatly they are quite hard ot find over here and are only available via 400+ Sainsburys stores as well as on their website if they deliver to your address.

Posted:Yes, yes, a tim tam eating workshop!! One where you bite the opposite corners off them and drink coffee through it, then eat it quick before it collapses in a soggy chocolatey yummy goopy mess.bounce2
(did I just ruin the workshop by giving away the secrets?)

Or substitiute port for coffee. mmmmm.
Best done with double coat tim tams, which I have never seen over here.
Pity sainsbury's doesn't stock mint slices. ubbrollsmile

Posted:Sainsbury's only seem to stock the Original Tim Tam's
My fav are the Caramel ones, but agreed the double coat work well with everything.
I quite like using the love potions range with wine as well ubbrollsmile

And no you didn't just ruin the secrets of the workshop, although that is the general content of it. biggrin

*note to self*
Must write to Sainsburys and tell them that they need to do something about improving their tim tam range.

Posted:That would depend on what you want to do. The BGG is laid back, in a field full of hippies. The EJC is full of very serious juggling types that can't look down any more due to all the hours of practice they put in.

Mojojo, the Love Potions range only came out at the start of this year, I think it's a limited edition range. But they are really nice.

The double posting above was actually an accident. I thought the first one didn't go through.
