Festival of The Unexeptional 2022

Same location as last year, tickets slightly more expensive but hopefully that's so they can get traffic management sorted.

I'll be taking the BX over this time. The Micra actually seemed a little bit too modern when I went last year! Anybody else thinking of going?

In fairness there weren't all that many I encountered. There may be more this year.

Sounds like BXs weren’t unexceptional then! Tempting day out…
