Blimey! It takes a maximum of two minutes to walk from the beer tent to the toilets. There are more toilets on the showground than probably many other festivals in the UK. Having said that some of them are not well signed and it is something we will get better at. The toilets are probably pre war but most work fine. The West Mid Show has 25,000 visitors over the course of two days and the toilets seem to cope pretty well for them.

Someone said (can't remember who) that there were no more showers than last year and that we had promised to provide more. There was one extra block of showers which provided an increase of 30% for exactly the same number of people as last year.

Thanks for the suggestions for artists for next year. We are definitely approaching two of them.
