Looks good, I'll persuade the missus that we need a 'Daddy's Day Out' http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Amusements for kids there too, plus other stuff to see.

Roster (http://www.bigginhillairfair.co.uk/display.htm) looks decent too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
