We are very saddened to hear of the death of

Pete was a master accordionist, a founder of the Yetties and a good friend of the Festival.

 Rest in peace mate.

IMPORTANT

It seems that quite a number of people (performers, traders and others) have applied by writing to whatever email address they can find, via a committee member or even via ex-committee members. While we admire your enterprise (and are flattered by our apparent popularity) please don't do this as it makes admin a nightmare and does not give any advantage. Every act gets listened to and selected on merit - there are no shortcuts. Similarly, stalls have to go through a vetting process because we have to get a wide variety and be mindful of what local traders are selling.

Please wait and reapply when the new web site is up and running in about 2 to 3 weeks.

Thanks for your forebearance.

Dear friends. I am told that this year's festival has been "The best ever".

Praise indeed. But we could not have done it without a brilliant committee, splendid artistes, Excellent sponsors, great publicans and wonderful friends. Most of all, I want to thank you, our public, without whom it would have been pointless. So thanks to each and every one of you for supporting us this year.
I look forward to seeing you again next year.

Nigel Canter, Chairman
