After last years being cancelled at short notice it was great to be back in 2017. The organisers have improved the event through weeding out modern rubbish stalls and suiting areas to help the public. The reduced number of streets being used did not lead to over congestion and made the experience very enjoyable. Perhaps not as many trade exhibitors as previous years but still a good range and hopefully next year the numbers will increase again.
Still a brilliant weekend despite the downpour on Friday evening which killed off browsing the canal area at tea time.
Great atmosphere early evening, which at times sounded like a good natured students rag week!!
Security pretty obvious and reassuring, we didn't see any incidences of unruly behaviour at all.
If feeling flush go into the converted convent on the canal, now a luxury hotel, for a coffee or beer to revive and marvel at the architecture, a great mix of old and modern. Otherwise loads of fixed price eats and modules frites to keep you going.
Very reasonable prices on the stalls and sellers provided to discount, especially on the Sunday. Take a shopping trolley bag to save having to return to the hotel too often.
Well done the organisers, see you next year!
