In reply to rjek "I noticed a drastic drop in young people visiting the show compared to last year ( the ratio of under 30s to over 60s is one that fascinates me )"

Perhaps the public transport links were better or as the Featherstone was close to a main conerbation it had a bigger potential catchment area. Certainly thinking back it did seem biased to the more elderly end of the population curve.

Others had commented that they saw new faces at the show and certainly your observation of at least two does bear this out and is interesting in that they were old users who dropped in.

Certainly food for thought for the MUG team and our next meeting on where to stage next years show.

Well perhaps next year we ought to think about doing something on Facebook/MySpace/YouTube as opposed to the traditional market outlets and see what that brings.
