St Albans Health Warning!
Thurs 24th - Sun 27th April 2008

By Maureen O'Brien
Posted Sunday, March 2, 2008




There's a very good chance that those who miss out on this year's St Albans Folk Festival will be kicking themselves for a whole year.

This could result in serious self-injury requiring medical attention.

This can be avoided by simply following the instructions below:

1. go to the website and check out the reviews and pics from 2007 [last year]

2. note the closing date for early bird ticket prices

3. book and pay for those CHEAP tickets that will give you unbelievable value for a weekends entertainment

4. start preparing your "camping equipment", instruments ...

and "fortify yourself" for a mammoth 4 days of fun

this may actually require that you undertake a fitness preparation program such as:-

  • doubling your daily alcohol intake in the weeks leading up to the fest;
  • forgoing 6 of 8 hours sleep per night for at least a week in advance;
  • limbering up your tonsils with frequent bouts of racous singing.
5. tell all your friends and make up a 'party of pals' to join you for an entry into the Chorus Cup [huge prizes here to be won!]

.......................It's been far too long since we've seen you [at least a year!!]

.......and we want to see YOU at this festival!

We've planned a huge program especially for YOU ........with all your favourite bands like;

Wheeze and Suck Band; Mothers of Intention; Jim Stubbs Backing Band;

Hot New groups like; That's That; High Fidelity; and

Special feature artists like: Fred Smith; Andy White; Penelope Swales;

PLUS multiple workshops, dedicated session space and times, Poets Breakfasts, Folkie Karioke,......AND MORE!!

We'll be expecting you.
