Maybe next year if there isn't a big event in the other building there won't be the queue at the van in any case so it won't be a problem. .
Unless it's raining cats and dogs.

No doubt about it, an indoor caterer would suit most people, but again, it is what it is and we may be bound by using the venue's outside van.

Alas to say myself and my friend Steve were unable to attend because I got stuck down at my sister's with the dreaded G. but I'm hoping to attend next year as a stallholder with a number of my completed repair projects, and free copies of however much of my (still in progress with another twenty chapters begun!) T & M Theory and Repair Book is complete by then, will be on offer on CD for the taking!

Items will be priced in large friendly "Radio Constructor" style diagram lettering!

Most exhibition type venues do insist on their own catering facilities being used. There are lots of commercial, regulatory and organisational reasons to do things that way, even though organisers and attendees would prefer more independent caterers. This problem often occurs at Camra local branch beer festivals, which are usually held in places like town halls or leisure centres. The catering facilities are often inadequate, and the food offered is inappropriate and expensive.
