Great British Folk Festival
« on: July 03, 2016, 02:49:39 PM »
Not sure what I've let myself in for, but we've booked for Skegness Butlins in December :-\  Never been to a Butlins before but they have Donovan, Lindisfarne, Bob Geldoff and many others performing over the weekend.  They also have real ale so if the accomodation isn't too great I probably won't notice

Hands up, it was great fun.  We were upgraded to a two-bedroom apartment, which was fine, and enjoyed some excellent live performances.  I've never been a fan of Geldof (indeed we only saw him because the other venue was too full) but he put on an excellent show.  There were one or two acts that weren't to our taste but far more that we really enjoyed.  If you get the chance to see Holy Moly and the Crackers or Mad Dog McCrea live I would recommend them - both great live acts that got an admittedly ageing audience up on its feet and dancing!

Glad you enjoyed it Wynne our friends in the UK often book these long weekends and enjoy stars of yesteryear performing.
