Review from God is in the TV
Butlin�s plays host to some 55 music festivals every year at its three English seaside resorts of Bognor, Minehead and Skegness. Promoted as Butlin�s Big Weekends, these specially-themed events � from rock, blues and soul to decade-specific parties � may not appeal to those with more discerning musical tastes, but there can be no denying their continuing popularity. Butlins welcomes nearly half a million paying guests every year to these huge jamborees and the income generated from such events now accounts for more than 35% of the leisure company�s annual business.
More than 6,000 of these visitors make the annual pilgrimage to the Great British Folk Festival at Butlin�s in Skegness, routinely filling the resort to its capacity. Now firmly established on the British folk calendar, the event returns this year for its ninth edition, taking its customary place on the first weekend in December. And once more it has put together an excellent line-up drawn from the world of folk music.
It is difficult to believe that 47 years have now passed since five young men from Tyneside appeared on the Old Grey Whistle Test and played �Fog On The Tyne�. The man who wrote that song, Alan Hull is sadly no longer with us, but his spirit lives on here in the current incarnation of Lindisfarne featuring both his son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm and the one remaining original member of the band, Rod Clements. It may well veer uncomfortably towards karaoke Lindisfarne at times but the crowd absolutely love it, everyone is � eventually � up on their feet dancing and the Geordie folk-rockers bring yet another hugely successful Great British Folk Festival to a triumphant close.
