Yes it is a pity, but I know Simon has had a lot on his plate!!!

Well Nigel I've just rung the Lord Hill and they said Simon Cartlidge made an inquiry but never confirmed the booking so it isn't on! What a disappointment! I was looking forward to something happening in my neck of the woods for a change. Oh well.

I was thinking the same thing

Can anyone confirm the Market Drayton Blues Festival is going ahead next weekend? The Lord Hill pub has no mention of it on their Facebook page.

Do you have a phone number for the Lord Hill?
Comment by Simon Cartlidge on August 12, 2016 at 3:37pm
Hi Nigel,
Unfortunately the brewery have picked this weekend to do some renovation work in the cellar so Roy & Shaz decided to postpone the Market Drayton festival until 17&18th September. It'll be at the Lord Hill on Shrewsbury Road in Market Drayton on that weekend. There's loads of space available for folks to play or set up stalls or anything. Stall spots are free, just let them know in advance so they know how many to expect, turn up and set up. They're there from 9am so they say folks are welcome to set up whenever they like, yet again just let them know in advance so they can make sure the door's open.

Some asked how many people came, was busy all day, by evening they were paced in like Sardines

Big thanks to everyone

Just want to say thank you for arranging yesterdays live stream to StumbleCol. I managed to cast the whole event to my TV except for an hour or so when the meds knocked me out and I had to sleep. Really enjoyed it all and on the big screen it felt really immersive. I couldn't tell how many came to the event. Was it a big turn out? Thanks again StumbleCol. Awesome job done.
