I'm sure the question on everyones lips is....will they be using milkmen again this year, or is it time for the Avon reps to step up?

Invite some local primary school orchestras. That should do it.

I'm sure the local takeaways will drop a flyer off with their menus...go to the darts and have a kebab on the way home....marketing sorted...all parties happy.

I really cant see how this will be on but Ill wait and see.

5 times its showed to have zero interest by the fans, TV and most of the people there, it would a complete waste of time.

It's part of the TV deal, so it'll be on.
They just need to figure out the venue and then get the free tickets sent out.

I think every time since Blackpool it's been mooted on here that it won't happen.
So forgive me if I don't listen to the 'nay sayers',

To be fair the first 3 x years were well attended certainly the first edition in Blackpool, it’s only the last two disastrous years...

The one in event city was a complete car crash with no one there.

We got the picture of the official with his head in his hands during a walk on no one was watching.

It’s only been attended well at Blackpool (where they managed to get the deal with the mirror) and lakeside (when they pleaded with Everyone to come at the last minute and dropped ticket prices)

And I don’t buy the whole “well they announced tv so of course it’s on”, the new era announced 4 new majors with major sponsors and tv and none of them happened. I dont think think a tv deal which they (probably) arnt getting anything for will play much part in whether or not they are willing to throw another 100k down the drain.

Suppose it depends if these new sponsors get named or not. Was that meant to be happening this month as well?

Looks like a decent crowd compared to Preston.
