I know this will please Jane and perhaps a few others!:wink:
Middlewich Boat Festival..
£10 is great value (£8 for students etc.), I think I'll be heading down there..it's only 40 minutes away from me, thanks for the info Linn! :cheers2:
It will indeed please me and I can usually drag about half a dozen along to Middlewich and it is always good value Shaun
Where exactly is Middlewich? Does it have a station? Wasn't it the place that had the cuckoo, as in the book by John Wyndham (I think). Or was that Midwich...?
I think the nearest train station is Sandbach, I don't recall a train station in Middlewich itself. It sits between Northwich and Sandbach and has a lovely stretch of The Bridgewater canal running along side it. Junction 16 of the M6. Top little festival also featuring June Tabor, Chris & Kellie While amongst others. Can't wait cos my Mum just lives down the road, so I have a comfy bed after the general drunkeness associated with my good self at a Nick gig.
wouldnt Winsford station be the nearest? Like most of this bit of Cheshire it knows very little public transport
As we're rapidly approaching the Folk n Boat, anyone able/willing to help get Nick's appearance here publicised, please get in touch. Ideas appreciated too - the more the merrier (I'll be:biggrin!
I will give it some thought
- and then some would be good!
Have those who are near the area seen/heard much about it as yet?
If anyone has access to forums /MySpace /Facebook / other usual suspects - ! - please spread the word about the festival and Nick's playing there if you can.
And all you boaters, make sure you catch support Neil Brophy.
Grr. Won't be coming to this - I'm at the Enterprise Inland National Championships in Bassenthwaite. Wish me luck everybody...!
It was a good night last night, met up with Roydan which was good, I wasn't driving last night so ventured quite deep into the Stella zone :cheers2: and then the JD zone, Nick was on top form as usual, and it was a great atmosphere with the streets full of boating enthusiasts!
Good to meet up Shaun, it was a good laugh moving that table closer to the front. Bit of a blessing getting the front row, my mate Milesy has blocked ears or something. I thought the bass from Nick's guitar would help blast it out.
Just a shame about the gabbing going on. The guy heckling in front of me attempting to impress his son deserved a slap. Not that I'd promote violence at a Harper gig of course.
There's always one at every gig eh! (or 2 or 3) I don't condone violence either, but a quiet word round the back often does the trick..:biggrin: :11:
Maybe see you at Arley Hall Roydan, me and Bob will be there! :sifone:
And little ol' me too! :thumbup1:
Arley Hall and Gardens in Northwich, sounds like a plan.
I too will be at Arley Hall - we need to make some lists of whos going where
