A little under an hour of Saturday’s show left and it’s starting to get a bit quieter now. Thanks to everyone that has paid our stand a visit today.

A lot of people seem to be returning from the food court after lunch now and our stand is getting busier again!

Here’s one we took earlier – team Festive Lights before the doors (floodgates) were opened and the public arrived.

Quick update for you: we now have two stands! Another exhibitor has dropped out at the last minute and we couldn’t leave a stand undressed, so we’re adding lots of coloured trees, lights and even some Christmas figures.

Another stand update for you – screens have been added along with some graphics.
