Who, What, When in Wye

The lovely people at Flying Monkey, organisers of Wye Fayre, have offered us a weekend pass for the whole family in return for me being Blogger at Large at the event.

Which needless to say will give me very great pleasure!

In answer to the questions some people have asked, the Fayre kicks off on Friday 6th July.
If you come on the Saturday, you pay for one day only and can still camp at no extra cost.

Prices are £45 per adult for both days, £25 for one day only.
13-17 year olds are £15 and under-12s are free.

It's shaping up to be a wonderful weekend.

What do you mean you're not coming???
Don't you want to be able to say in years to come,
'Ah, yes. Wye Fayre. I was there at the beginning ...'?

Click here to see and hear some of what you can look forward to.

And in case you're still not convinced, take a look at this:

WYE FAYRE, our perfectly-formed 5,000 capacity festival takes place on the 6th-8th of July 2007 in the Kent countryside, one hour from London. We've got a stunning line-up of established and up-and-coming international bands and artists with all the festival trimmings you'd expect and plenty more you won't be expecting.

Electroacoustic Club will host The Bimble Inn (as seen at Glastonbury and last year's End Of The Road festival) and there'll be a towering outdoor main stage, the Far & Away Stage, set in 'Dingly Dell,' and The Stage With No Name (the singer-songwriter tent). The Brixton Therapy Centre will have their own big tent, where you can be massaged and generally 'healed' and there's the ingenious 'Play' tent, where kids can entertain themselves, whilst DJs entertain their parents. There are real ale and lager bars, a wine bar and even a converted camper van bar serving cocktails and champagne. There's also great food and ice cream.

Best of all, after the main stage shuts down at midnight, the trees become lit up and the whole site transforms into an after-hours arena of alternative entertainment, including films, Penned In the Margins poets and impromptu acoustic performances by some of the headliners. There are separate fields and acres of space for camping and parking, including a dedicated family camping area, as well as rooms to rent for those of you who aren't happy campers.

Rooms to rent! Ah yes. Now they are talking.
