Wow,  WHAT A TURNOUT, So many people on our debut event on Barr Beacon, Wow wow wow!! You were all so well behaved and nice and friendly, it made all of the hard work and hundreds of hours in the planning worth while. We have taken on board the comments and fantastic feedback from you wonderful lot and YES, we will have more toilets. We are building a 'Toiletopia' and our pumps will deliver more beer for our 2020 event.
