The bar was organised (used in the loosest term) by EBM, Event Bar Management, A company I could not recomend to anyone.

The bar's were a complete fiasco, totally mismatched to the clientele.

The "beer tent" in the traders area was a mobile trailer bar.

The staff were not communicative to say the least, if your staff resent the customer, you are in for a loooong weekend

I had to settle for cocktails and forign polish mead schnaps like, in the tent

well a tractor was essential, but VME got out of the field unaided :D - but as for having to move a fully constructed siege wall on the Friday - never again! thanks comitatus! also, arenas with a static fence, no second rope line and audience standing on a roadway, brilliant, with no one from the organisers to speak to

well that'd have had us cancelling the show anyway.

no second rope.... no insurance....
