There has been a reduction / withdrawal of external funding for the event. Despite that, and unlike some other local events held in Hanley Park that do still get a chunk of funding, it was free entry to ALL areas. Donations were welcome with the ‘blue buckets’ touring the site.
The mix of funfair, trinkets, clothing, sweets, bar and food stalls seemed to be well balanced. The food stalls seemed to be particularly busy, more so than the bar.
