A couple of questions please for those who've been before.

We were going to take picnic chairs and coolers full of beer and food - is there a long walk to the site from the car park? Can we set our chairs up near the main stage and leave them there all day, occasionally visiting the other stage and the stalls etc?

The popular country music showcase is now in its 17th year, and with a little bit of luck it could soon find its way into the Guinness Book of Records.

Organisers have teamed up with the Grand Theatre, which is staging a brand new country music comedy called Rhinestone Mondays in September, in a bid to get a record number of people dancing to the same musical track simultaneously at a country music festival.

The record-breaking attempt will take place on Sunday (July 24, 2011) at 3pm, and revellers will be encouraged to get up and dance along to Achy Breaky Heart and the Steps number one 5,6,7,8. Leading the bid will be Rhinestone Mondays cast member Shaun Williamson, best known for his role as Barry in EastEnders.


Oh dear - think I'd rather go on the Saturday now!

We are having a great time and so far really enjoyed it. Serious question though what is the etiquette withline dancing. The wife went into the fenced of area and asked 3 people how they do it and all 3 ignored her. Is there an etiquette?

We had a great time on Sunday - weather was fabulous, and the music was pretty good too. The line dance world record thingy with Barry from East Enders, however, was a good time to go and get something to eat!
Strange that your wife was ignored. In my experience, dancers are usually friendly types and willing to help. Is she a complete novice line dancer and wanted them to teach her, as that is not as easy as it may look? Having said that, ignoring somebody is not the right reponse!

to be fair my wife persisted and apart from being a beat behind as she was following everyone else, she really likes the idea of line dancing.
