    I reckon the RAH is going to be real cracking contest, a brilliant mix of excellent bands.
    I might even try for a couple of tickets for myself and Mrs W after a good few years absence.

    Is it just me or does that seem an inordinately large number of bands? Seems more than is usual somehow.

    Usually the last weekend in May, but sometimes the top section piece is after this as the comimission has not been completed in time
