A friend of mine was down on Saturday and commented that it was dead, more so than a quiet weekday in the past. Not many Rib Manufacturers on show either..

Going on Wednesday. Mrs NSS got the tickets with her Tesco Clubcard points. Not sure if that's a green light from her to upgrade, or just a bit of RIB teasing :-(

Anyone going tomorrow, Friday the 23rd?

Spent a good day there on Sunday with the family, but am going back tomorrow to spend a bit longer on a couple of things the family would be bored with.

Lunch time beer anyone?

Nasher.

I also went on Saturday, and it really was the quietest I've ever seen it, although I expect the news at the end will be record sales, record attendance etc!

As one exhibitor said to me, "we're doomed"!!!!

The attendance figure quoted to me was 20-25% down on last year, which was down on the year before that.....
