So sorry to hear this, and sorry to miss all you guys again...

Just cancelled my ferry ticket... I've got to move house in the week after and I should probably get back to the packing frown

Rob sounded very sad on the phone... and my heart goes out to all the organisers...

Well, thank you for all your work anyways - it was definitely appreciated smile

Many thanks
Clare (and also Will, who was looking forward to meeting you all!)

hug

anyone who wants to meet up with me anyway PM me for my phone number (I'll be in England July 17th-August 5th.)
I'll be staying at Emma's (devilsarmy) in Nuneaton, so anyone living nearby would be great to meet up with smile

Posted:I tried google maps, but it was taking me to random roads..

south coast of England was enough for me to find it: I always forget wikipedia though: I guess that's cos I get told off for using it at Uni

And yes, learning everything on the internet would be awesome! Although I'd probably keep on jumping out at people and offering them porn as a result

If I could ever read everything on HoP alone, I'd be happy! wink

Posted:Jem that could work... There are loads of campsites on the Gower and the beaches there are gorgeous, also if people could book individually we stand more chance of them not turning a large bunch of hippies away.



What if tomorrow I gather together a whole bunch of telephone numbers for a cluster of campsites down on the Gower and we arrange ourselves into groups of 4-6 and book in to the sites separately?

Posted:frown such a shame. To everyone involved in organising the fest, my heart goes out to you. I know how much work goes into these events, and how disappointed you must be.

I have flights booked, and so would be well up for a random meet...

Gower, Wales

One of the most beautiful places in the UK! Its a bit pricey though! However you are right on the beach and it wouldn't be a mission to transport firewood into the sand-dunes each night. I'm sure they wouldn't accept large groups but its an option for a small meet up.

Posted:Fordhall Farm was a lovely place but there are many reasons why we'll not be going back.

But

Thanks to loads of people who rallied to help find us alternative locations we now have a literal plethora of possibilities for next year. Some even more beautiful than Fordhall and Workhouse put together! smile

Gutted. Just. Gutted. A big thanks to all the organisers for trying their hardest to make Play happen.

This was gonna be my only holiday this year and myself, OH and a couple of mates are still gonna have the time off work so hopefully can come along to some random meets if thats ok with folks.

I think this is even more reason for a get together for a hug workshop cos i really need one now
