Well it was first arranged in here.. first holiday booked for me. See you all in Cambridge guy's. Booyah!
Hi Keith, the beer festival was cancelled by the Elstead Cricket Club thus losing us the marquee, stage etc. Since I found out I have contacted all the players who had signed up and all who have got back to me are happy with the new arrangements I have put in place. It will still be held in Elstead on the 27th Aug, details within a week. I can say that our headline act will be Swamp Train from Switzerland and many more to be announced.
Thanks everyone for your patience.
I have seen the poster for the Cambridge CBG festival but can somebody please tell me others when & where the other two are actually being held? If you google barrel house all you get is details of the 2014 event!
Hi, I don`t want to throw a spanner in the works, but the UK already has 2 CBG events in August, one at the start and one at the end, I did not want to steal any fire from Brian or Barrel House, but I had to have the 6th of August for Cambridge, it is the week after the Cambridge Folk Festival, where will advertise it and also that was the date that the venue was free.
I know that there are people and performers, who cannot come to Cambridge, because they have committed to Barrel House and cannot afford to go to two things in one month.
Can you not do Shropshire in mid-July instead?
You might get more people to travel and come then!
Ok thanks for the info - I should be able to make at least one of them :-)
Not been on CBN for a couple of weeks nearly .... I am confused now , doh! So not 6th August but 13th ? Same venue ? Cheers !
Defiantly sounds like its go to be a weekend to remember or not remember depending on the bear
