We are dragging the old tintent there for the duration and expect chill out :cool:
It'll be our first time there so any advice serious or otherwise most welcome :p
@Regy53 - is this the correct section or should it be moved to Vintage and Classic (like me!) :geek:

Are you fed up with the pipe organs starting at 8am yet:LOL:
Camped 2 years ago - you've got lucky with the weather, must be like the costa del Dorset down there.
Getting round the show by Saturday obviously means you havent spent anywhere near enough time in the beer tents!

Horrible clumsy old thing :ROFLMAO:

Anyone need a quick hitch 🤔
Auto jumble is much smaller than usual 🤷‍♂️

It a munual hitch. Pick up the first pin with the fixed bit and the other bit rotates round the other pinand is held in place by a retaining pin and a wedge. Okay, but no tolerance of dirty pins or hangers not being made perfect.
