    Just one point, though... I think it's worth remembering that Cranage is the only show I know of that has FREE ENTRY and parking. Normally, you're looking at 15-20 to get into a hi-fi show, with sometimes parking on top of that (if it's in a city centre venue) - and then the food and drink inside STILL costs a fortune!!

    So that should be taken into consideration when assessing the VFM of the Cranage Hall 'package', where they're clearing making the event commercially viable, by profiting from food and drink sales. That's fine in my book

    Me and Mrs. Pony have booked online for this year's show, looking forward to it.

    Something occurred to me recently-It seems a shame that you could be standing next to someone you've enjoyed forum banter all year, and not know them from Adam. For your information, I'll be the one with the arse cut out of my farah trousers, exposing my Inspector Gadget tattoo, and the missus will be giving one of her teddies an airing
