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

lazy angel you know its all about dinner from a tin and waiting for the best part of an hour for it to heat up on the unbelievably crap camping stove - that's what i'm looking forward to

Posted:hmmm.. better off using your stove to make lots of tea and coffee... or cup a soups. Or cheesy beans ubblove

yeah, it saves sooo much time going to the stall. And the organic stuff is yummy!

Oh yeah and don't forget the elderflower and brown bread ice creams in the farm shop in the hot weather!

Posted:oh yeh the farm shop! forgot about that. i bought a really large, not so nice tasting bottle of the orange and carrot juice last year - it just tasted like earth with a hint of orange in the aftertaste. i tried to palm it off onto other people but they were having none of it! in the end i drunk the entire bottle really quickly for a pound... and then almost threw up. the pound was handy though! thanks steve wink next time the cranberry!

It is done automatically, so that we can track your order as can you.

The only think you will pay for on the website is the things you buy. the rest is footed by us.

Posted:Definitely no PLAY for me This year.

My little sister is getting married on the 28th, and on the 29th I need to be in Germany.

Maybe next year.

Posted:Well, as I'm sure the smokers amongst you are more than aware, the new smoking laws come in after 1st July, and these will obviously affect Play.



The main issue, will be that no smoking will be allowed in any of the marquees.

The only exception, is if we roll the sides of the marquee up (notice the "if"!) in which case (bizarrely), it becomes a "non-substantially enclosed structure" and is thus exempt.umm



If we are inspected, which could well happen bearing in mind the people who check our licensing are also those checking the smoking laws are being upheld, and people are caught smoking in places they shouldn't, Play festival gets fined 2500 for each person breaking the law!. We run on a very tight budget, and a couple of smokers could potentially put us out of business frown

Also, the individual gets fined 50 (and boo'd very loudly).



So please, PLEASE do not smoke in any enclosed area and obey all No Smoking signs.



Also - as all smokers are being forced outside, please use ash-trays and bins provided, we don't want a circumference of butts round each of our tents.



Thanks for your understanding.
