Bickershaw . Lancashire .U.K.
Friday May 5th to Sunday May 7th 1972.

Pre-festival publicity puffery. part 1.

"We're going to set a new standard for this and future festivals "

     Hmmm, yesssss indeedy. To be charitable I suppose one can say that the intentions were good, but the reality was somewhat different . Thanks go to Mick Etherington for providing me with copies of the pre-festival publicity screed which actually bears about as much resemblance to the reality of the festival as a rancid halibut does to a well thumbed copy of the Kama Sutra .
