Well prices of hotels in the area are absolutely extortionate around the £200 Mark for 2 nights is ridiculous we have managed to find one at £90 for 2 nights I wish I'd of known earlier ( my fault ) plus £36 to get in its a very expensive ( which is cheap if you live local )  weekend but looking forward to it sort the other hotels out  please organisers otherwise I'll bring me  box lol

Hi Steve, Not  sure where you have been quoted £200 for 2 nights but I think it fair for us to point out that this event is being held in a very picturesque area called The Ribble Valley - the area is a popular area for wedding venues and The Foxfields is one such venue.

As organisers we negotiated a very special rate per night for The Foxfields Hotel and the venue sold out within two days of us advertising the event - that was in January this year. The demand was such that we negotiated a good rate with another local hotel and that is also sold out too.

There a few rooms available at The Mytton Fold Hotel which is within walking distance of The Foxfields but this is a Best Western Hotel so their standard charges per room will apply.

There are plenty of cheap B/B's within a five mile radius but we have left folk to book themselves and then contact us for passes.

 

As for the passes - you state that it is costing you "Plus £36 to get in its very expensive" - you fail to say that the £36 is for TWO full weekender passes at £18 each.

The event runs from 1pm until 2am on the Friday and Saturday so is effectively two alldayers rolled in to one - the passes are £18 per person for the full weekend (£9 per day per person) or £10 per one day pass per person - how can you say that is expensive?

Pay on the door (if available) is £12 per person per day

 

Also....... we are not sure if you have actually got your passes yet so it could be best to make contact soon before they all sell out - last years weekender was a packer and this year we have had a far greater response.

The event runs from 1pm until 2am on the Friday and Saturday so is effectively two all dayers rolled in to one - the passes are £18 per person for the full weekend or £10 per one day pass per person

On it Larry - passes are selling really well now - last year was a great event, this year sounds like its gonna be far better!

Folk coming from London, Canvey Island, Wolverhampton, Cleethorpes, Hull, Middlesbrough, Scotland, Norwich, North Wales, Kettering, Leeds, Sheffield and Bridlington to name a few places - most local accommodation sold out but there are still a few rooms available nearby!

All the dj's are ready and everything is in place to make this a great weekend - see you there!

Following on from our recent meeting with the management at The Foxfields Hotel................
It is our intention to run a very small "Chill out area" at our forthcoming weekender.
The area will be adjacent to the main reception of the hotel - the area has several low leather settees where a few people can sit and chat over a coffee whilst listening to some VERY "Chill out" tunes. The area is by no means meant to detract from the atmosphere being created by the dj's in the main room and is only felt as being an option for some people wanting to relax in preperation for the evening sessions.
Dj times are as follows:-
SATURDAY AFTERNOON CHILL OUT
2.00 - 2.30 Jem Booth
2.30 - 3.00 John Townend
3.00 - 3.30 Andy Balmforth
3.30 - 4.00 Garry Parker
4.00 - 5.00 Geoff Rhodes

Looking forward to visiting on Friday, unfortunately I'm unable to attend the full weekend but I know it's going to be a cracker. Great lineup of D'Js. Will see some of you beforehand I'm sure but if not, see you there!
