Great news that it looks as if the SFF will be as popular as the last couple of years - hopefully they'll be able to find room to host it in between the never-ending rows of vines springing up all over the island and decimating Sark's Eco-system........

A festival without a field.

Never mind asking for local musicians better ask for a decent local field or two, first?

I suspect as a long term fan of the Festival, the Sarkese will have to gain the SEM's permission.

They still haven't even booked all the acts for the 2013 event, and still it sells out!

There's a bit of a clue here as to what Sark might be doing to fill up with visitors all year? I don't think this lot are coming to admire the vines, pay their respects at Castle Barclay, or wave at the brekkiecopter, are they?
