Yeh, think we're going to try it anyway and hopefully use it as a springboard for a few days afterwards in Wales...

It is a good show and I agree that the organisers can't be held responsible for the weather, however, if they're going to host an event which is, apart from the bar, an all grass event then they should have a contingency plan. 2 bales of hay chucked about the place and a token tractor was a very long way from cutting it. I contacted them to ask why they hadn't sent a mass email out to say that the place was a quagmire and apparently that was unreasonable. It seemingly isn't unreasonable to send mass email advertising of the show. Again they said they'd made mention on Facebook but it would seem I had already left home and had no access to it. Nor do I check Facebook for the place I go to every day. I am friendly with a trader who started to call others on the Saturday to say don't bother coming only to find out the organisers had already cancelled many of the traders. So they knew there'd be very little trading. Why didn't the man at the gate, who took my ticket and laughed at me mention the conditions before I drove in and got stuck..twice.
It was just very poor organising, caused damage to my van from all the mud and grit that threw up, the organisers stopped contact with me when I asked for a partial refund (they'd refunded people who didn't come to spend the whole weekend but wouldn't refund me as I stayed Saturday night (unable to move) and left at first light Sunday when I could get a tow). I think they showed themselves as being only interested in the money. Shame really. It's the only show I ever stayed over at.

Do. As said, as long as the weather holds out it is a good show.
