Title: Is it just a rumour??
Post by: Barbara on Friday, February 21 2014 02:44PM GMT-1
Are BH performing At Butlins Big Folk Weekend Skegness this year? I've been for the last couple of years, great bands each time, if you don't mind queuing to get in, I think I've got used to that!!

I know the feeling!  :o

Skeggy, eh? I went a few years ago. It was sort of okay. Great music, of course. Bit of a hike from Swansea mind you, although I could break the journey at Leicester. Hmmmm.......must have a think.  :)

Hmm - we normally go somewhere warm at that time of year to celebrate my birthday - Skeggy - well I'm not quite sure that qualifies!

I have it on good authority that it's true!
Vivienne, it's usually very warm in the venues, but cold whilst queuing outside!!

Just out of interest - who else is on? (allegedly!)

I have been twittering Butlins for days now, and they say that the don't have any bands confirmed yet. We have found out about BH just by chance, a certain little bird let it slip to someone I know at Cheltenham last week!
But at the moment it is all 'hearsay' I would have been going to Butlins anyway.

Well I'll wait and see who's actually on before making any decisions!

Good thinking Vivienne, but it was a certain person who had a birthday this week who mentioned it!

It would be very funny indeed if they played Butlins. Talkawhile's pet trolls will be apoplectic!

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Just looked up the dates. We are going to be somewhere warm then! Last year one of morris musicians went and, on my recommendation,  discovered Edward II. He said he couldn't keep still - the first time for years!

The advert in the back of Mojo definitely says Bellowhead appearing - first act announced. I can't post you a scan as the function isn't working.

So who's going to be brave enough to go and post it on TAW?  ;)

Well,... According to JB,..BH had been booked for the Friday night, but Butlins had cocked up on the dates, so now not sure what will happen, watch this space....

I've booked this now, since more acts have been confirmed - including the Full English, Salthouse, the Young Uns and lots more!

It'll be great to see you there Maureen! It's only cold when queuing, it's warm & cosy inside the venues! We go every year, love it!!
