We recorded 925 visitors to the festival with a good geographic spread across the East Midlands and further afield.
I was a good event and we will be having talks if we can do it again all next year. As they say watch this space.
Thanks to all our sponsors and we hope we can count on you again next time.
As we get close to closing time the Rutland Morris have pranced
And the D’Ukes have uked, beer is cheaper £2.00 a pint and free entrance; you have gone to heaven if you came and sadly to hell if you missed us.
Only 75 mins left, still time
We had a good night last night with “Uninvited Guests” easing us into the evening.
We have lost a few beers but there is still a lot of great conditioned beers and ciders available.
