Cindy has listened to your feedback and some of you had problems buying tickets online last year, so we have changed our ticket provider. The new system should be operational on Tuesday. Sorry for the delay. Who will be the first to buy their early bird ticket?
Cindy has been working really hard today, finalising tickets for their release on Sunday and she has come up with a VERY SPECIAL OFFER!! My lips are sealed, but there is a limited offer that I know you are going to like xxxx Watch this space xx
We promised you the tickets would be on sale and they will be. Some of you have experienced problems with our current ticket provider, so we are working hard to provide a new one. Look out for our early bird tickets xx
You may think that Cindy has a well earned rest in between LFest and L Festive, but she also runs www.stanstockevents.co.uk. This weekend she is organising a camping and party weekend for 60 people at her family home. It is like a mini festival with family games, music, bbq, Country walks and lots lots more. She also organises weddings, stag and hen and big birthday parties. You name it she will organise it. You can even bring your own food and drink. Cindy loves a party xxx
Which was your best bit?
I met up wih Cindy yesterday, she was buzzing. She had just had a meeting with Spring Out organisers, the company that coordinates the Cinema and Arts programme at LFest. Lots of good feed back and fresh new ideas for next year.
Cindy was also talking about her ideas for L Fest Events, such as wedding and party co ordination, also a new Stanstock Festival in 2014 and L Fest Del Mar in Southern Spain in June 2014. Phew!! So many ideas......l look forward to helping with planning and business development xx
Wow just spent the weekend at Farmer Phil's festival at Ratlinghope with Cindy, Laurie and (some of the time) John. My first impression was OMG I am so pleased that Cindy didn't go to festival before organising L Fest, it was a shambles! !! The stewards on the gate wreaked of booze and didn't look at all professional. L Fest staff are not allowed to drink with their L Fest T shirts on. Then we found the loos to say I was shocked is an understatement! I felt sick and quickly moved to the next one which wasn't any better and this was at the beginning of the festival.
We watched Beth Prior who was fantastic and enjoyed the accoustic stage. John had had enough by about 6.00pm and said he would pick me up later. I enjoyed spending time with Cindy and Laurie. Cindy was on a roll thinking about Stanstock 2014!!!! Developing a new entrance and which date would be the best. She decided on the 4th July, so watch this space. .......you heard it hear first.
At about 8.00pm the electricity failed we waited about an hour for it to get fixed, but by this time it was raining cats and dogs! ! I decided to call it a day, so Laurie and Cindy made bacon butties and we called it a day.
I can't believe that it is now the end of L Fest. It has been amazing and today has been very imotional. The comedy was funny albeit a bit risky!!! Cindy closed with a very imotional speech and struggled tp finish it. It is now 1.52 am and I am very tired., good night xxxg
What an amazing first day, over 1000 women came rushing through the gates. Some had been stuck in traffic for hours but the Crew were there to give them a very warm (very hot) welcome and help them with their tents.
The atmosphere was incredible, the venue was fantastic I think it must have been built for L Fest! !!! Cindy opened the Festival by welcoming everyone. The crew entertained with a very 'enthusiastic' dance which was given a rapturius applause. I popped in for 10 mins and I was bursting with pride to see Cindy so confident on the stage. The evening finished with a firepit session thanks to Fish and friends. Now this is where it gets a bit vague:-( I remember singing 3 of my favourite songs!!
Anyway must go now. Going back on the gate in 30 mins . My son Gareth has come over from Denmark to help and I don't know how we would have managed without him. Also it is lovely to spend time with him. I could write loads ....... but one proud Mum has to go to work xx
All packed up ready to go. I don't know how Cindy stays calm but she does, and she thrives on creating the biggest, lesbian festival in the UK. There are over 1, 000 women getting ready to descend on Uttoxeter Racecourse tomorrow.
5.00 am a beautiful sunrise, the birds are singing, (feathered variety only!) Lots of work to do, but we will be ready. Now where did the ticket scanner go? Please form a queue at the gate until we find it xx
