thanks for coming everyone, was crazily busy, hopefully we addressed all of the issues of the first event.  There were some mega bargains to be found too (i ended up buying someones entire stall near the end).  See y'all for the next one

Putting the stalls down the corridoors was a poor idea, I was expecting stalls in the basement (as last year) and in the main hall to increase capacity rather than just cramming them down the sides.

That said I will be there next year, thanks.

Problem with that as with last year was the large amounts of heat and it being too packed. At last this way it was more spread out and you could view everything you wanted.

we had to remove the basement room this time at a late stage due to things out of our control, but i think it worked better, it was a pretty horrible room to be honest :-)

I'll just disagree. Did two runs around the corridors and unless you were willing to elbow your way in, you could not see the stalls.
