Weekend at Eden Camp

To say that I was disappointed with the number of people that turned up for this weekend could be the biggest understatement of the century! The trouble was that 6 mile away in the town of Pickering was a similar but much more established event, namely a 40’s weekend with camping at the showground they had over 300 caravans turn up. We had 12 And although I have nothing to do with the booking I had tried my best to promote this.
It was planned that I would do Friday and Sunday night`s entertainment, but as no one was staying to Monday both of my `nights` were compressed into one. For the first part I played sixties music at low levels, we did a quiz before seamlessly moving on to Ball Room After the Blitz, scheduled for Sunday night.

It`s always nice when you FB messages from people saying how much they had enjoyed themselves, just a pity more had not turned up.

  1. Such a shame you didn't have more caravans at yours. That must have been disappointing. Great playlist tho!
