I never knew that Thatcham had a festival, and it was their 10th. I only just happened to click on the NWN news section and low and behold there is was. Obviously very well promoted. laugh.gif

Yes; they probably read what I wrote and rushed out to Thatcham. Next step will be to find out where it is. After that it is easy; they leave to go home. Day completed. tongue.gif

That's why there are still no replies, they haven't found the festival yet - it'll be a late night for some!

If they don't reply in the next couple of years we should be able to presume from that that they are still looking, or died trying.

I have to say, the Thatcham Festival is a great series of events. Most of the events are free to attend and for parents with kids, it's a cheap day out. It's probably not everybody's cup of tea, but you are often surprised with these events. I often trundle along expecting the worst and I'm more often than not pleasantly surprised by what I see.

At least Newbury/ Thatcham is making an effort.

But if you don't look up something you don't know about, you never learn new things! smile.gif

It all sounds very New Age to me, like crystals and suchlike.

I went on a bird walk today... Not exactly the most exciting event I've attended this year, but I did get to see an Egyptian Goose!!!

Newbury Sound has reported that the festival was a success over the weekend with "scores" of people attending - well isn't a score 20? So does that mean about 40 people attended?

Now if Biker1 had gone they would have at least two score and one tongue.gif

It would seem that 'scores of people' means a large number, or a great many. wink.gif

Yea, but they would normally report "hundreds" or "thousands" rather than "20's". Does suggest a poor turnout.

I'm sure it was a great success though, could have been even more so if they advertised the thing!
