Albury Music Festival and walk

This is a date for your diary! Last year Mike B organised this event and we all had a fantastic time at this completely free festival in the Surrey Hills.
As Mike B is actually playing in the festival this year he cannot host the event, so I'll host the walk before the music.
We'll go on a walk on beautiful Blackheath in the late morning, length will be about 7 miles, then we'll come back to the festival in good time to hear the acts, including of course Mike B.
The start time for the walk will be 11:00. We will start the walk promptly at that time, to be back at the festival by about 13:30.

The festival is completely free to attend - usual meetup fee of £2.00 applies for the walk. You are welcome to come to the walk and festival, or just meet the group at the festival for a picnic and music.

Food and drink: you can bring your own or buy some from the stalls.

Meeting point for the walk:THE SANDY LANE CAR PARK IN FRONT OF THE FESTIVAL. You can park either in that car park, or in the car parks at the festival (voluntary donation for the festival car park).

    Walk was great and not too hot in the morning. Enjoyed the festival - we seemed to all be sitting in small groups - next time might be worth agreeing roughly where the group will sit as it was too crowded to find everyone - didn't spoil my enjoyment - just a thought for next year!

      Sorry about that, the group scattered all over the place when coming back to the festival and people were quite hard to find.

    Hi all,
    the forecast is for another very warm day on Sunday, so please come with plenty of water, sun cream, and perhaps a hat.
    You can buy refreshments at the festival after the walk, but there will be no opportunities to buy food or drink during the walk, which should take about 2.5 hours.
    The walk will start at 11:00am sharp, so we can be back at the festival by 13:30. We are meeting in the Sandy Lane car park in front of the festival. I will be there from about 10:45, wearing a yellow t-shirt, so I should be fairly easy to spot!
    Also, please keep in mind that you will be sitting in the sun during the festival, so again please bring appropriate clothing and drinks for this.
    See you all soon!
    Tom

      Hi Tom, I look forward to seeing you and everyone else on Sunday. Don't be alarmed if you see me walking out on crutches though. I've ruptured my Achilles tendon playing tennis so my leg in is plaster! However, the show must go on and it doesn't stop me playing my guitar sitting down. Mike

    Hi. Is anyone driving down? I'm coming from Welwyn Garden City, Herts, and I could meet you in London or anywhere else that's convenient for you. I'll share the petrol costs of course. Please get in touch or, without transport, I won't be able to attend. :(

      I don't think the festival has any restrictions on dogs. Dog is very welcome on the walk anyway.

    Hi Tom. I would like to know if we are allowed to bring friends to the Albury Music Festival. I might have about 11 people wanting to go as well. Thanks

      Hi Madalena, the festival is a public event, so of course you can bring as many people as you wish. Would your friends be coming to the walk as well? Please let me know that, so we can plan the numbers.

    This was really enjoyable last year, chilling on the grass with a cold beer listening to music in the sun was perfect. Hope it is warm again this year.
