What a fantastic weekend of folk music at the Bude and Stratton festival. But behind the scenes there are always the committee members who work tirelessly throughout the year. Thank you all!  Hilary Truss Daniel


Huge thanks to Liam and Kate for the children's workshops in Bude Primary School, is there a chance of including  Stratton and Marhamchurch schools next year? It was lovely to see the kids dancing on Bark House green and enjoying the workshops in the Rugby Club. Simeon Haslett

Just back from Bude & Stratton Folk Festival - what a wonderful weekend. Made lots of new friends, sang loads, tapped our feet - even danced... life is good. Now, what was I supposed to be doing this week? Ali Rowe


Back from a lovely 2 FULL days at Bude folk festival with friends and acquaintances I hadn't seen for a while. Sunday's evening singaround went on until around 1.00 - it was tough getting up for the repeat journey next morning to make the 9.45 am workshop. Jackie Oates was great as usual and I tried the beginner's Uke workshop and actually managed to play 3 songs. Phil, Gerry and I surprised ourselves and performed a blues song at the survivors "concert" without any rehearsal - and it went OK. Mike and Barbara's "Return to Lyonesse" was exquisite. MUST go to bed now -shattered. Lorraine Rooke

... a perfect Bude Festival weekend.  Andy Jackson


Song-tastic weekend at Bude Folk Festival. Enjoyed my solo gigs and ace performances by Jackie Oates and Jim Causley and the many other singers. Also greatly enthused by the Cornish song-writing legend that is Roger Bryant- and have got another his songs I will pinch. Geoffrey Lakeman

... a wonderful few days as part of Bude festival.   Loved all the concerts with exceptional varied line-up.  I especially enjoyed the music Hall - having seen a few in my time I reckon this one was very well planned and executed.  Loved the location and the warm friendly atmosphere.  Saw lots of old friends and made new ones.  I can't wait for next year when I am going to bring a bus load of friends with me!!!   THANKYOU ONE AND ALL!  Anne Lamb
