      Default Donny Anyone?

      Mornin all, just wondering if anyone went to Donny over the weekend? I went last year but couldn't justify another visit this year. Haven't heard much about any of the shows this year really - wonder if its because there's quite as few nowadays and they're more accessible for more people, whereas years ago it was just the NEC & Harrogate events that had us all excited.



      Two and two make four...........but now and then they add up to three and occasionally, just occasionally its five !

      My friend and I went to the one earlier in the year. We'd never been before because we usually go to NEC but was so unimpressed with them last time that we thought we'd give Donny a go.

      We both enjoyed it, had a really good day and spent more than we have at NEC in ages. There was also plenty of space to get round the stalls. We'll definitely be going again.

      By the way, do any of you know if there's one nearer Christmas?

      Went to the one they ran at Bolton, seemed really quiet, not a huge number of stalls (only one fabric stall plus Pinflair ) and no "atmosphere" They didn't give away goody bags either, you had to buy them for £20, contents looked to be OK though. Certainly wouldn't travel any great distance to go again, seemed better when "Hunky" ran it.

      Did have a think about going, but decided I have spent more than enough in recent weeks. Shame in a way as I can get there for nuffin' with my bus pass. One of the things that has put me off in the past was it would be three buses each way, and what would the weather be like. Sorry, that is two things. :)

      Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side. :mysmilie_484:

      They didn't so goodie bags when I went last year to Donny (they used to do at the NEC) but I had seen something about them on this years tickets - seem to think it was tied in with the ticket purchase or something? Anyway, it sounds like it was ok at Donny but Bolton one doesn't seem as good, I suppose it got too expensive for HD to stand it on their own. Thanks peeps!
