    So who else is camping rather than van-ing?

    I'll be camping. Got to get Hello Kitty out and see if she's serviceable but if you see the pink wonder, do pop by for a chat.

    A bit of a long shot, but does anyone have or know anyone that has a spare vehicle pass for sale?

    Ha with a very large degree of flexibility on the meet time and keeping in mind mobile signal is pretty rare there :D

    Given it's 23dom's send off on Friday, I had in mind that might be an appropriate day. Festivals are one of the few times in a year I drink booze so I was going to raise a pint, or similar, to him then.

    That looked weirdly-worded on a re-read :oops:

    So let's clarify : Main Beer Tent (opposite Pallet Stage) at about 1 pm on Friday, I'd suggest! :) :D

    Anyone of a certain age that used to go out partying In london late 90s/early 00s maybe interested in Mark Sinclair doing a retro Pendragon set at 10:30 on the outdoor pirate ship. Quite excited for this trip down memory lane!

    Ah I have a table booked in at Cheezy Vinyl at that time. I take it the Meet at Acko's Bar will be going on for a few hours?

    Got drunk yesterday in a pub with rich! and friends, and was persuaded to buy a bearded ticket :D

    Look forward to meeting you all and drinking beer. I assume there are some bands on and that, too, probably.

    We picked up our tickets (plus van pass) :) :) from our friend Andrew who we were drinking with at the weekend -- he'd ordered some early birds for us back in February, as we were away and out of internet access the time that early birds went on sale.

    And I quite like paper tickets!! Old school etc. :D
  21. sojourner

    sojourner Where's me readers?

    I can't commit to meeting up cos I don't know what times I'll be compering yet. I DO know however that I got a spot in the spoken word tent, 2.44 - 2.55 on the Saturday, if any of you fancy heckling me ;)

    I won't be doing political, OR loved up - not enough time to fit everything in, so I'm going for mammograms, shouty ranty, a lovely person, and then more shouty :D

    chainsawjob : Martin Ashford's our very good pal! His knowledge of festivals goes back decades! :cool: :cool:

    I've just been packing, not much left :)
    I have a short six hour day tomorrow :D , festivaldeb finishes work early too, and we'll be off to Hereford for the evening -- we'll be staying over there tomorrow night (Weds) to break the journey.
    Obstacles permitting :hmm: we should be onsite, set up and wandering about by mid to late afternoon.

    The obligatory BBC weather link (I've used Lichfield) -- and for now, it looks pretty positive! :) :cool: :D :p ;) :thumbs:

    See various of you round and about site, and at the main beer tent 1 pm-ish on Friday.
    Stig -- we've not forgotten your other beer needs either! ;)
    We hope to sort that out in our shop for general supplies in Hereford on Thursday morning :)
