Just got back n have to say I feel a lil disappointed. Fields was very lumpy/bumpy with grass up to my knees (before it got flattened by other vehicles/people. Didn't see any "free" kids activities (face painting, pony rides etc), as advertised on the web page, the "proper plumbed in toilets" was porta cabins, neither did I see any showers (not even from the weather luckily enough) and a few traders, mostly selling nothing of interest to me. Doubt very much I'll go again.

Hi Ritch, i know the organisers and will feed back.

Would reply a little - still thought the field was 100% better than last year as was lots Sheep mess last year - unfortunately the original venue was not available as the owner has concentrated on car boots and didnt want anymore shows.

Agree re Kids stuff, the Pony rides were around Saturday but did so little trade they decided not to bring them up Sunday (Only 1 child had a ride). Shelly the organiser was let down by child entertainer, the Lady at the Bouncy Camper was face painting instead but dont know if it was free or not.


SHowers - again balls up.

Toilets - to be fair a plumbed in Portacabin with electricity and a Boiler for hot water is pretty much a real loo -a lot better than the portaloos at Camperjam.

Traders - they lost 2 parts and a conversion traders to the rearranged VanWest and yes, to many crafty ones really as only saw 1 conversion company and about 5 people in the Autojumble on Saturday.

Thought the music saturday daytime was good and the kids absolutely loved the Park, Skate park and basketball/football pitch.






Guys, all feedback welcome and will be fed back as is as they are doing a post show meeting in a weeks time to try and get next years better.

My own feedback at moment is mainly about how little for kids really.
