UK 2007

It’s time to start thinking about UK Big Road Blues, 2007, and this is a preliminary notice of same.

As the wheels groan into motion (Ian, The “Diamond Geezer”, will soon be knocking them back in a
reconnaissance foray to The Mill) it is pretty certain that the dates will be:
March 9th – 11th, Friday night thru’ Sunday,
and that
“The Mill On The Soar”, Broughton Astley, Leicestershire,
will again be blessed by our presences.

Broughton Astley is just south of Leicester, close to the junction of M69 and M1.
(And only twenty minutes from Birmingham Airport, so the lucky people in mainland Europe won’t miss out.)

The form of the event will probably follow previous years, thus:
(Provisional, because everything changes... )

Friday Afternoon/Evening.
Arrive and register.
(well, it’s what all the posh do’s have, isn’t it, a “registration”?)
Zonk out.... Meet old and new friends in the bar and restaurant....
Comment on weight gain and hair loss… Bit of impromptu jamming...
Busking in the snug...

There will be the usual mixture of workshops, teach-ins, jams and afternoon naps, in and around the main hotel complex...

And in the evening the Saturday Night “Jam And Come All Ye” backed by our old friends “The Mothball Boys”.

A leisurely brunch, followed by the freeze-your-knackers-off photo session in the car park…
And off for another year.

The cost is not yet defined, but will not be much different (if at all) from
previous years.
(See here: ... page_num=1)

Details will be posted as soon as we have firm figures.

In the meantime, so we have at least some idea of numbers,
please e-mail me, as soon as possible, if you are planning
to be there.

I'll look into the financial possibilities.
