Posted:Hi guys,

It's Southern Lights 2009 announcement time smile

Firstly, the dates are 12-14th June.
We have a new site on the grounds of a beautiful stately home in a little village called Kimmeridge on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, we know that very few of you will have heard of it so we have organised an electronic map!

There is so much happening and the best way to keep up to date with what's going on is to check out our shiny new website at www.southernlightsfestival.co.uk

We will endeavour to answer questions and comments that you leave for us but the best way to get your questions answered is to use the contact page on the website.

Have a wonderful winter and spring and we'll see you in SUMMER!!!

From all the Southern Lights Team

Posted:The show was really good. grin

Maybe a little short, one or two more acts perhaps, but the quality was outstanding.

Wes knocked everyone's socks off, Tim looked fantastic and it was a great act, and Rob's was also great.
I like these multi-prop acts.

Posted:Thank you for a lovely weekend all, I think I am recovered due to my lie-in this morning, but the sunburn is a dead give away that I spent way too much time frolicking and not enough time being responsible, which is perfect. Awesome site, the view was amazing!

hug

Sunday morning was one of the best of my life.
Being woken up by Monty Python songs, opening a tent to blazing hot sunshine, a beautiful view and a field of smiling friends was awesome.

This again next year please grin

High
far too many to list, so I'll stick with the one handed 4-peg bomb onto G's hair on stage in the renegade

Low
was there one? yes, sadly there was, with two not very happy friends. I love you both.

Goal
Do good shows, make people happy with games and warms-up. Check grin

Crush
Wes. of course.

Bane
cutting my hand on a broken aerial at the start and therefore not doing nearly as much juggling as i would have liked...



in general; absolutely awesome, and much fun was had, in a fantastic place. good job guys.

Posted:Sadly, I'm pretty rubbish at words but I would like to thank everyone involved for helping Southern Lights evolve into the beast it now is. We're going to have a couple of weeks off and start with the planning for next year, well, by a couple of weeks off, that means I've only spoken to Si 5 times today as opposed to the 20+ times a day for the last month or so!

We are really proud to have heard so many nice things said about Southern Lights but it's nothing without the support of everyone involved.

Our crew were absolutely stunning and we are so pleased to have learned the lesson of delegation.

The villagers have shown some great support for Southern Lights so things are looking good for remaining at the same stunning site which I'm sure everyone enjoyed.

One last thing...

Please could people upload photos to our flickr account so everyone can see them?

Our address is www.flickr.com/groups/southernlightsfestival

Thanks again everyone, you rocked our world
