WOW, what a weekend that was! So good we're still buzzing with the events of it all.
Great Concerts, great Sessions, brilliant Guests, wonderful outdoor happenings, terrific Harmony Singing throughout and lots of Visitors and Audiences to lend support.
We had folks in the Village from Australia, Tasmania, South Africa, the United States, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Canada,and from all four home Nations, and all of it for FREE!
The weather even held fine until this morning as everyone was leaving and the promised rain and winds finally arrived in the early hours.
We had many more Concerts than last year and all the Venues were very busy indeed, most of them having an even mix of Sessions/Singarounds and Concerts with Audiences packing Venues out until late Sunday night!
Local Traders and Venue Hosts were well pleased with the turnout over the 3 days of the Festival and Performers and Audiences alike had a wonderful time.
Many new friendships were forged as well over the weekend and some promise of new Groups and Bands is surely on the horizon for next year?
Many, many thanks to all who contributed their time, efforts and talents to make the Festival such a success and our most heartfelt thanks to all the Volunteers and Stewards who ran round like maniacs to pull it all together.
Dates for the Festival Fundraiser next year are February 26th & 27th so get in early to strut your stuff if you would like to help out and raise more funds for the Festival proper, the dates for which are:
30th September to 2nd October?
We hope you all enjoyed your Festival weekend as much as we did and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
