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:I'd be tempted to email them ( in the polite 'are you aware...' fashion) , you're an established name as the Play festival for a three years now, and though their name is written differently (probably stands for PLymouth: ArtsY festival or something daft) it's obviously said the same so...



They may not care, there's quite possibly no legal issue (it being a common word), but on the other hand they may consider changing simply to disassociate themselves, as you, being established and ongoing won't be changing..



[edit: Ah, I see you've rightly formed a new thread for the legal thing : http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/show...5/o/all/fpart/1 ]

Posted:i'm having a problem ordering my ticket.

when i get to the "choose a shipping method" page i don't have any options, and i can't continue to finish my order.

my guess is that it has something to do with my address being israel and no shipping methods are avilable for israel?



EDIT: I checked it, I changed my country to UK and i had shipping options.

so how can I order my ticket then?

Posted:ubblol garthy just wants to relive the naked hot-tubness that was apparantly at the firegathering - well annoyed i missed that! but i can imagine it getting pretty grimey seeing as that was three days and this is five - i wouldn't wanna go in on the last morning *shudder*

neon - stock cubes? i dunno about you but i know i don't smell of stock cubes, even after five days of not showering. unless that's your normal smell... a change of shower gel is maybe in order? tongue hug

Posted:Not just you alone, but imagine 5 days of multiple hippies, all sweaty and grimy after day-long spinning, in and out of the tub, it's bound to all start stewing.

Or you could just say it's a meat tenderising process...
