How about a weekend meet up once a year with some playing, workshops, tuition, real ale, great food etc
Maybe some face painters and fire/sword swallowers - don't forget the kids and Health and Safety? I did outline planning for a festival once, it was a nightmare.We need to find someone who would be interested in running some jazz workshops etc.
Plus we would need a venue with accommodation a bar and a hall.
A holiday park out of season would be good
We would have to make sure they had some decent beer in stock
I wonder if I could get a brewery to sponsor it
I know a couple of breweries who might be up for that sort of thing
