 All music & song is unamplified & purely acoustic]

 All welcome - come on down - it'll be brill!!

Message from Leon Girke, landlord of Sportsmans Arms pub, Denbigh Moors:

Good afternoon.

Feel free to arrive anytime on Thursday 18th April.

Park where ever you like, the ground should stay dry if the weather stays as predicted.

The pub will open up midday Thursday, and food will be available Thursday evening.

We will stay open day and night through to Monday night.

You are free to leave whenever you like after then (or before obviously!)

As long as the field is empty by the end of day on the Tuesday.

I will be leaving the doors to the rear of the pub open for those who are camping to use the loos.

Couple of further notices:

Please take all your rubbish with you. This is mainly because we are only allowed one rubbish bin and we are unable to make a disposal point as the winds can be very strong up here and rubbish gets blown around everywhere.

Dogs on leads at all times. This is very important, as there are lambs everywhere. Even if you know your dog won't eat the lambs!

We still have some pregnant ewes that may lose lambs if they get scared!

The blue stuff....Not sure what it's called but please can those
wanting to dispose of waste please not use the blue stuff.
We have a septic tank so the organic stuff only please.

We're really looking forward to weekend and catching up with all you guys, we really hope the snow stays away this year, but even in the middle of summer it can get a little nippy up here at night, so don't forget a nice warm jumper!

I will open the doors to the pub early each morning so you can warm next to the fire, and for those of you wanting to stay inside Osh will be round selling his bacon and sausage butties.

Diolch, Leon, Sam, Osh, Bea & Reuben.
