FRINGE EVENTS:

A large programme of events is scheduled  
from 8pm on the Thursday evening, Friday afternoon and all day on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 10am.
 
Over 130 performers will take part in a       variety of events including workshops in -   instrument training, (harmonica, guitar,     ukulele  and fiddle), songwriting, voice
training, poetry, dance displays,  
singarounds and singalong sessions.
                                                          The 'F' Factor Talent Showcase' and 'Late   Night Extra' music sessions will ensure 
you  are never short of something to do                                                
 

CAMPSITE:
 
The grounds of the venue are made up of   many sports pitches and therefore there 
is a ban on walking dogs or allowing
them to roam free.   Unlike in previous
years there will not be a dog-run on site.
The campsite is enclosed and bordered by
the lovely Stanney Woods. The woods
are 
ideal for walking dogs.
 
Toilets and showers are available inside 
the main building with portable toilets on the campsite and a number of water
points.                                               Hard standing is available for motor homes and large caravans.
 
 
SCENIC COACH TOUR OF WIRRAL PENINSULA:
 
In previous years an inviting coach trip around the Wirral peninsula (with         commentary) has proved very popular.                                                                 The festival committee has approved this   venture again and, on Friday afternoon, a   coach will leave the festival site and tour     the beauty spots of Wirral.                                                                               Tickets need to be booked in advance         using the booking form but please ring ~ 0151-678-9902 ~ first to check seat     availability.     First come, first served.
 

FOOD:

The Members' Lounge is also the place to
dine and there is no need to leave the
festival site to cater for your culinary
needs.  A good selection of real ales and
an extensive low priced food menu is
available.
