Well... I'm sorry we got there just as Tom and Barbara's session had ended. Would have loved to do that one. If there's enough people to warrant more than one singaround... and it seems there were. Then please keep them going. The overlapping concert must have had an effect, as many of the singers that I know would want to do both. So, as Richard says, please keep it in, but slot it in between sessions.

We certainly enjoyed our first time at Tenterden. Thanks to all the contributors in the singarounds we were involved with. We got the one train, it seems, that didn't have an audience - but heigh ho, we got some practice done. Really enjoyed doing the Short Sharp Shanties concert, and thank you for the reception it got - it's always nerve-wracking taking something out for the first time. Hope we'll be back!

Stormalong - you must have been in teh sings that I wasn't - I was Caxton with Brian Peters (followed by guerilla session) Fri and on Sat Woolpack for Tom and Barbara and later Bob and Kath. Woolpack was slow to start but very full by the end of Tom and Barbara. Bob and Kath's started pretty full but not rammed, and then dwindled, but we had a cracking after hours (small) session at the end of it. Given that I think a lot of people no-showed because of the forecasts and the field was not very full of campers, I think it held up well. I think staying doubled up would be good - some thought to be given to overlap.

Thanks to Alan and co for another great festival!

The singarounds I attended were all well supported, but I've been wondering about those I didn't attend given the doubling up this year. As far as I know from talking to others they all did well except when they had to compete with the not-to-be-missed Short Sharp Shanties concert.

No dramas from everybody who left today, all got off and out without a hitch (pardon the pun).
The weather gods played fair in that at least it rained at night rather than on Saturday for the dancers, and the line up was top class. An excellent festival and congratulations to Alan Castle, the committee members and the hard working volunteers.

IMHO Tenterden has always outranked Faversham - historically and currently it has had an excellent range of top quality folk musician guests, and usually excellent song/sessions - for example in the 8 Bells and a more formal "club" upstairs with Bob and Kath until alas the 8 Bells was lost to the temple of mammon (or is it gammon?).

It is a delight to have the Woolpack back - the beers in the barn were excellent and the acoustics there absolutely fantastic (and the portaloos there were constantly clean and well lit once turned on).

English weather in October will always be a gamble, but for the most part the drier section of the field was OK. Maybe an arrangement could be made with the local AWDC - a display of 4*4s and on-tap-towing - or a "clearway" along the very crest into a higher section of the hard yard and mandatory sensible parking - vans pointing DOWNHILL herringbone fashion off the crest so on exit they turned north (ish) towards the tree then came back along the dry crest.

I think Tenterden has taken over from faversham as the place to go in the autumn. I remember days at tenterden when the only sing arounds were the ones we started. Much better now.
We did sweet 16 after your 4X4 =16 Girl Friday. I'm not sure people realised the reason.
Also - well done the PA people. Made my fiddle sound really good.

We had an excellent time.... once we had managed to get there. Completely missed the lunchtime sessions,due to traffic holdups. Wandered down the High Street and met lots of friends coming out of Tom and Barbara's singaround that had just finished. Enjoyed fish and chips lunch, and a bit of shopping, then caught the end of the concert in the marquee. Spent the evening at The William Caxton . Sang 4 x 4 for Dave Earl, The Fox, and The Mauretania. Enjoyed hearing everyone else's songs too. Think we may be camping next year to avoid missing so much.
Thanks to Alan and his team for organising it all.

Hi all,

Please note the entrance to the camping field will be as follows;

Go over level crossing and then turn right through the big iron gate BEFORE the entrance into the railway car park. Continue past "the old forge" and a couple of industrial units. You will see our campsite banners and signs on your left along here. When you reach the parking spaces on your left beyond the wooden fence turn into the field and you can use any of this top section where it is dryer. Hope that is understandable.   Portable toilets and water tank (not classified as drinking water) will be near by.

Fascinating. The Weather Outlook and Metcheck are showing Wet Fri and absolutely biblical Saturday (Metcheck predicting nearly two inches of rain on Saturday, mostly in the morning) but the BBC and The Weather Channel are showing at worst some light rain Friday and the rest mostly nice.

I have eaten almost all my tame cheese and will soon have finished the untamed versions. Since they were bought for the blessing this is probably a blessing. But I do have some Pimms and some lemonade and and kiwi fruit and lemons and cucumber and will get strawbugs and lime. I will get ice from supermarket on any day the sun comes out for long enough.

There is a rumour that the Bard has bought his local supermarket dry of the important runny breakfast ingredients.

I think awnings may be essential if the wind will permit...

According to the BBC weather elves it will rain on Friday but a big golden orb will appear in the sky on Saturday and again on Sunday.

Cheese purchased for 'Campsite cheese workshop' includes: French Chaource, Reblochon, Spanish Manchego,some 'Cave Aged' Wookey Hole cheddar and a very nice smelling piece of unpasturised Brie.

The Bobbing Sausage factory has also been in production over the weekend so all members of the travelling breakfast club should probably try to eat healthily this week in order to compensate.

The weather WILL be great! To prove it we have booked some ground protection mats, like they have on building sites, for the entrance to the field. They will be delivered Thursday morning. We have also appointed a Minister for wet weather which guarantees a drought. Seriously I've just looked at the field and the entrance is much improved as the Railway have done some work on the drainage and ditches and the farmer has cut the grass. Look for the banners by the lower entrance.

There has been a couple of changes to the programme as Jim Causley is unable to attend due to ill health.

Otherwise mostly going to plan.

Good to see a Wiltshire contingent coming as my grandmother's family came from Overton near Marlborough and some still live around the area.

See you all soon.

Wevva sites still lack unanimity but the odds are improving of most days being dry and sunny with temps of up to 19 degrees (Celsius). One site is giving Sunday morning as wet, one is showing some drizzle most days. The other two I use are saying mostly dry and sunny.

Yes, there are many. Look in programme (on website). Most days two to choose from from about noon to about 1430 and then another two to choose from from about 8pm to about midnight. Sometimes there are three. Most are in the Woolpack, the Caxton, or the Vine but there are also tune sessions in the White Lion.
