It was a bit misty at the park first thing but the sun soon burnt through, the attendance looked better bolstered by lots of public enjoying the sunshine, the bus held up ok although no records broken but the commercials were almost eliminated and they once had quite a good turn our, there are more truck events these days which sees them going to dedicated events rather than joining the buses. There were a few shown for the first time in Manchester, certainly a good mix of age ranges, friendly as ever and frustrating as the usual herberts get in the way when a whole lot of people have been on a spot for ages then someone walks straight in front and sets up plus walks out towards each passing vehicle, there must be pills for that sort of behaviour as nothing else seems to work. Sales were just about tolerable and probably the worst at the event since the last great wash out but as its local overheads aren't so bad.
The number of stands was much less than normal but that did little to help matters. I couldn't walk very far without stopping for chats and I was gone a while as Mandy was trying to contact me as she needed to go to the you know where, anyway we survived the days and met lots of friends and regulars. Last night I did finish making both York and Harrogate DVDs so adding Heaton Park later, all are on our shop and I loaded the latest list at the end of the week. Photos from todays event.
