Hi, We've done a 'sorte' of the local B&Bs and there are two within walking distance and one within a 2 minute drive. There's also a sort of shuttle which runs runs from that B&B for a very small charge. The local taxis company charges £10 return but it is a 6 seater. Anyone wanting to attend but hasn't got a tent/caravan drop us a line as we've got a very reasonable deal with the B&Bs. Bookings are coming in steady so if you're wanting to attend please don't leave too late. Don't forget you can pay by credit card if needed. Check out Facebook group Rock Ridge Roundup for further details.

We are also now taking booking from any stall holders wanting to attend. pricing is very reasonable, and includes full entry into marquee and enetertainment. We are sorted for food stands but any other trade stalls are very welcome. We are expecting a good turnout and the audience should be a good mix of dancers, listeners and westerners. If interested please give us a call on 01207 529233 or 07982 005429. Thanks Kevin

Website for Rock Ridge now up and running. Check out www.rockridgeevents.co.uk Also one change of lineup. Howard Brothers have had to cancel. We have replaced them with Chasin The Wind trio, from Scotland. Some of you remember Richie as lead singer from Hillbill Deluxe.

Rock Ridge this year will also feature a fully stock draught beer/lager bar. previous years have ran with a bar serving cans/spirits only. We've purchased a fully equipped outside bar for this festival. We are also seeking a deal with a local real ale brewer, so expect to have a good selection of cask real ale on tap as well. Prices, as always at Rock Ridge, will be very reasonable, as appreciate if on site for the full 4 days your bar bill soon mounts up. There will be a selection of keg beer/lager and cider, local real ales, spirits, soft drinks and even tea & coffee. Keep a check on FaceBook group Rock Ridge Roundup for future update. Bookings forms available from website www.rockridgeevents.co.uk or main page on this site

While attending one of our local C&W clubs last night one of the guys mentioned that he'd heard Rock Ridge has been cancelled. Don't know why and where these rumours start from, or whose behind them but I can confirm Rock Ridge is DEFINATELY ON and NOT CANCELLED. This will go ahead as planned end of July and we've even started to look at the bands appearing in 2014!! Please be assured this will proceed and those booked will have a great festival. Still places left as well so please give us a try, I'm sure you'll have a great time. Thanks Kevin

Less than 100 days to Rock Ridge now. Deposits of £20 per person still being taken up to end of May. Also offering a £10 discount to all you authentic westerners, subject to you setting up camp in the Western Village. Strictly authentic camps only, no modern tents/caravans or cars in area. Also just finalising bar prices now. Looking like John Smith's £2.20 pt, Carling £2.30 pt, Guinness £2.50 pt, Cider £2.30 pt. Branded doubles £2. Take the bar prices, and the full weekend cost of only £60 (including camping) then got to one one of best value festivals. Fantastic line-up, all under one large marquee. Check website out for full details of lineup and booking forms. www.rockridgeevents.co.uk
