Fat Skeleton Blues & Bikes Weekend 2015


Published on 12 November 2014 by Gill


Cabourne Parva, North Lincolnshire 17-18-19 April 2015

(£20pp) Campers & Caravans £20/Weekend Cars £5/Weekend

Venue: Again the venue will be the Cabourne Parva site near to Caister in North Lincolnshire.

Dates: The dates of the next event will be 17-18-19 April 2015.

Important Change: The site is now licensed for larger events which has made changes to the rules and regulations that the local authority has insisted on. Also thanks to some thieves who came and stole from tents in 2014, we have decided to employ professional security who will patrol throughout the weekend. The new rules mean that all camping will be in the larger, but more exposed, field. Campers will not be able to take their own alcohol onto the entertainment area. To cover costs of hiring professional security the price of camping will be twenty pounds per person. Motorcycles are free. A surcharge for camper vans and caravans will be ten pounds per vehicle. Cars will be charged at five pounds unless the driver is disabled and can prove this. Dogs will be allowed, but must be on a lead at ALL TIMES as this is a working farm. (Glass bottles, beer, wine glasses etc. will not be allowed, again, as this is a working farm).

The Bands: The better news is that the bands that have been booked to date are as follows:- ZZ Tops, The Bonnie Mac Blues Band, (Whose singer Sheila has just been inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame), Half Deaf Clatch, The Dave Thomas Blues Band (ex. Blond on Blond), The Gypsies, Old Dog Jackson, Blues Boy Kings, Dave Simpson, Ska Finger. More to come as they are booked so keep an eye on this website. More news as and when we have it. For more information please ring Tony Nightingale on 01507 527835 and for trader enquiries please ring Mitch on 01522 869407. This event is to raise funds for the National Youthbike Charity. If you know of any person or band that plays good blues and wants to get exposure then please inform them and ask them to contact me. I would like to talk to acoustic players.Fat Skeleton
