    Me and the Mrs went for the day felt a bit out of place as we wasn't dressed from head to toe in Real Tree I think some of the prices were a bit steep so I'm glad we left kids at home as would of needed a bank loan! Think this will be the last time for us.

    unless your interested in the ring displays or are going to meet up with friends I think these events are on a sharp decline due to increasing gate charges, no deals on goods and extortionate prices on food. Better deals on the NET without the hassle

    +1 Expensive waste of time nowadays. Do not bother with the fairs anymore.

    Not a bad day, other than the travelling crowd starting to scrap close to the family by the fishing demo it was ok. I reckon though its probably the last for us, it's getting smaller with more non related stalls and nearly 40 for us both to get in I will be surprised if we end up there next year. All the shows other than Kelso seem to be the same even the local woodfest has gone the same way, the midland has been our last definite show but not anymore I reckon.

    Careful how you tell every one about the tin of lube mate people might jump to the wrong idea.

    if you think the midland is in decline maybe you should come to one of the fairs in n.ireland then you would have something to complain about

    I am 63 and my sister is 72 so it was a shame that for 18 quid each entry (seniors) they cannot organise a shuttle bus to get back to the parking area as I was loaded down with all the crap I had bought it was quite a struggle (10kg of no 7 shot in a bottle etc).
    Travellers all over on Saturday and the dog walkers blocking the way and the stalls being too close together made getting around less than fun.
    I reckon its my last too.
