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

Personally, I thought it was nice not having much stuff on Weds and Sun as it gave people time to mix, mingle, play and do whatever.




Seconded. The first thing I did on Wednesday after I'd put up my tent was go around meeting people (and what nice people they were too smile ) but if there had been stuff on I might have been inclined to do that rather than make friends.

I missed the renegade on wednesday night. I was gutted. I was up at the firespinning area supervising the fire marshal. Damn inclination towards safety of others...



me being one of those "nice people" biggrin if i'd have known that renagade was on wednesday then i prob would have went... and if i didn't join you watching the funny fire marshal ubblol

yes mike.... it was to do with you! it was all to do with you! lol

Don't worry about it.. Mech claims to have no memory of anyone at all ever, if his many and various "who the **** are you?" posts are anything to go by...

Ok after just (well this morning) coming back from EJC in Athens....read all those posts (with a couple of micro-sleeps between)

Was a fantastic festival! Took me a day or two to adjust from the Glade, but by far the best Play yet!

Thank you everyone for everything! hug

wait, pinknigel.... were you the one with the bird kite???



Nope, soz.. I believe that one was Mark T's (beardy chap, did the acro with Abby in PHAPY).. My kite was (is) quite a bit larger and has 4 strings instead of a stick, making it mucho fun in as much wind as was blowing across that field...

Flexifoil currently have a bunch of special edition pink kites. I know I'm just going to have to have one or several.. Just as soon as I've justified the couple of hundred quid price tag to myself...

i belive you mean the Punk rage, they are really nice

nigel, you might want to think about this as a chance to move up to a more powerful kite, like teh rage, still a pulling (engine) kite, not a lifting (jumping) kite like the blade IV, but it is more pull, and more fun especially if you wnatto get into bugging....and thats always fun smile

It is the punk range I'm thinking of.. Blade's not an option, it seems, since the punks aren't showing up there (I guess the "limited stock" ran out...), though those would be nice (I'm more interested in getting off the ground than things with wheels right now..), so it'll probably be some stackers...
