@DJ - because i wanted to know, that's why. As far as I am concerned the info that the BBC sent me should be in the public domain and without me or anyone else having to ask for it.
So, here is the email address that the sender of the BBC info used. BigWeekendEnquiries@bbc.co.uk I post that should any of you wish to contact the BBC and find out for yourselves (but ssshhhhh!!!!!!! be sure not to make the info public!)
Re catering - I've just had info about this sent to me by the BBC. Would love to post the info on here but there is a rider at the bottom of the e-mail saying that I can't disclose its contents!!!
More info about how to get to/from Powderham here http://www.powderham.co.uk/transport-guide
So depending on where they live it might be Shanks's pony, the train (but remember what I have posted about the time the last train leaves Starcross!) or the number 2 bus.
Trains - note this from the above website. The length of time it takes to walk from Powderham to Starcross (20mins and I guess that's on a good day when there are no crowds), the approx time that the last set will finish (22.00hrs) and the times of the last trains leaving Starcross going in a westerly direction. Sat. 22.36 Sun 22.29

I've been told (by TDC) it is the BBC that can answer such questions as: 1. the names and business addresses of all those who will be offering catering facilities 2.the process by which these caterers were chosen 3.What costs they have each had to pay (and to whom) to be able to trade at the festival
@FB re names of catering outlets. Have you tried asking someone at TDC for that info?
