|More of a non-event posting, but Steve contacted everyone involved to say this years show at Rochdale Town Hall was cancelled because the council had double booked the town hall for the weekend. Sheer incompetence from council I think. It has bee blamed on change of management, but how hard is it to maintain a diary of bookings. Anyone involved in exhibitions knows that is right at the top of the list.
As I am doing exhibitions over the previous 3 weekends, I will probably need a break anyway.
Given how many billions of public money is spent on publicly owned buildings, in particular schools and sports centres, I would expect council to have been able to sort it out.
Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.
