Oh Dear .........We visted on the last day (Sat)....the organisers have to appreciate that packing in more and more vistors makes the whole expirience "quite dreadful"....if you love queing and paying over the odds for very poor quality food and drink then this is the place for you ...as a regular of Ascot Henley etc , i enjoy the summer events (even when it rains) but it does make me angry when i am asked to pay 11 quid + for a pint of Pimms , thats not even freshly made but piped into a plastic beaker , the fact that the Pimms stand was the only one that was not "mobbed" suggests that the "boycott" has already started
The pavillion was fantastic...but alas we had to wait until passed 4pm when they were distmantling to get a good look, the crowds were so tightly packed as to make it almost impossible to appreciate the exhibits
as i stood in the queue for the gents a lady proclaimed loudly "ha its so funny seeing men having to queue " i discreetly asked if she had seen the ladies queue , and pointed out a lady in the far distance and advised her that it went up the hill out of sight ...the organisers know how many are coming so why do they not cater for it ???????
As regards the "Show Gardens" they were dissapointing".....its about time the "flower politburo" encouraged designers to "entertain and inspire" ...you can have way too much of rusty bed frames , square privet bushes and political statements, where was the dash the colour the romance?
Blocks of concrete are not a good look , too many of the exhibits were virtually the same...it was boring
Maybe best to watch Mr Titmarsh on the box next year?
