    At the weekend I went to this random event, held in Regents Park, London... there was no DnB there, hence why this thread is in the waffle section!

    If anyone went, what were your thoughts?

    There were some random events going on such as:

    Goose herding
    A knitting tent
    Maypole dancing
    Morris Dancing
    Ferret racing
    Free Yorkshire Tea
    A Human Fruit Machine! :banana:
    Also, a double decker bus serving Pimms!

    The music was pretty good, not many famous artists, but Ben Westbeech made an appearance on Sunday (vocalist for Number 1 / Get Closer)...

    :thumbsd: or :thumbsup: ???

    May I add that I had a spiffing old time getting sunburnt surrounded by 200,000 people! :mad:

    No, only on the Saturday, I wanted to go on the Sunday as well to see Ben Westbeech but the missus wanted to go shopping... :rolleyes:

    Was good all the same... I had the chance to go and buy some vinyl!

    I saw 'Stomp' on Saturday evening as well, probably the best thing I've seen in my life! (A musical with no words/operatic singing... instead people make some wicked rhythms and melodies with brooms, bin-lids etc.)
