That's good value for that line-up I reckon.

I thought so. About half the price of a Saturday ticket for Cropredy, with a much more interesting line-up.

The fact that it's two days before my birthday is a quite convenient too

We have been for the last few years, and it has always been great fun. Last year we had a party for our 25th wedding anniversary there, with a gazebo, and family /friends turning up when they could and going when they had to. It was perfect for a mixed bunch of people - and we were extraordinarily luck with the weather!

Making inquiries regarding maybe taking a stand there next year. Need to expand into large country type fairs with large footfall rather then the traditional Craft Fair. Has the advantage of listing to great music all day too.

Yep. Good music, good food, hopefully some sunshine and all only 30 minutes from my in-laws where we'll be the day before.

Mo made an inquiry and looks like we will be there selling and demoing as well. May be able to do a 'have a go' as well as my insurance covers me for tuition. Worst scenario would be that we have a great day out so can't lose. Anyone else going?

Inquiry was supposed to be for next year but it looked so good and the organiser was full in the craft tent but said she would love us to come this year if we could supply our own gazebo. Hope it doesn't rain our Gazebo is a little frail

Hope to see some of you there and put faces to names.

And we (Mo and I) will be there. Had a great time last year, both enjoyment and financial. Pop over and say Hi if you go. Let's just hope the weather is as good as it was last year.

Yep, it was rather last year.

Hope to see you there, it'd be good to finally meet another DS'er.

I am demonstrating and doing 'have a go' sessions as well as selling so you can't miss us LOL. Next to the potter apparently.
