I really enjoyed this. It was well laid out and thoughtfully arranged (Car park being free on a Sunday was a nice touch). Signage from M25 appeared great (although I already knew the venue) and it was a good mix of conti layouts with just enough trade. 


Only criticism is that some of the tables supplied by the venue were VERY LOW so non self-supporting layouts were difficult to view from above. Maybe have some folding crates for those to sit on might help.
