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

Posted:Ugo - you can go to the venue section of the play website, and there is an interactive Google map that you can use to find your way, i will be updating this in the next few days to link it directly to google maps, and so you will be able to get directions via car from your house.

is the play bus shuttling from brum anyone know?


 Written by: play website

Unfortunately there are no major train stations around Market Drayton, so if you have decided to use public transport you will be pleased to hear that we have arranged for a PLAY BUS to make collections from Wellington Train Station in Telford (which is around 17 miles from PLAY).

Wellington Station is on the main Birmingham to Shrewsbury line and it takes around 40 mins from Birmingham with trains leaving every half hour.
The PLAY BUS will collect from Wellington Train Station on:

WEDNESDAY ~ 4pm until 10pm

THURDSAY ~ 8am until 6pm

FRIDAY ~ 8am until 6pm

Return journeys at the end of the festival will start at 9am Sunday morning until 4pm Sunday afternoon.

NO BUS JOURNEYS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON SATURDAY

that help? smile

Posted:not really tongue

you can borrow his driver's license wink

or you can just tell him the truth - you're gonna be in a field full of hippies for 5 days and they don't use credit cards because credit cards are a way for the big corporations to control the world.

(or just ask one of the organizers about it, but i like my methods better)

Don't worry about it, just bring something with his name on (a letter or bill maybe) and the order number and you'll be fine. Maybe a screen print out of the confirmation email if you have access to a printer? That would be more than cool with us hug ubbrollsmile

Posted:ok, so just had a thought about the whole 'smoking laws' thing: If a bunch of people (on their own initiative) set up a bunch of gazebos so they could smoke inside in bad weather, would that be ok? (as long as it was nothing to do with the organisers)

on another note, I've added an offer to do a facial hair/dressing up workshop, as if any of you really needed an excuse!
