That was for a lot of stuff though - hire of a lot of the place from
Friday lunchtime till Monday lunchtime (ish), all the security, staff
and at least 3 big rooms; the hall we were in was big, there was the
entire floor at the top of the stairs that I didn't see and another room
that I also didn't see, plus the hospitality suite on the top floor.

I've been told we had over 700 people in....maybe I should find out how
much the tickets were!

I'll also double-check with the other exhibitors to see if they were
told how much it all was.....


owner & curator, Binary Dinosaurs - the UK's biggest online home
computer collection? - the Museum - former gothic shenanigans - the place to whinge at adverts!
