As an alternative event, if you are interested there is a medieval fayre on the weekend before the Balloon Festival at Cressing Temple near Witham (only 5 miles up the road from Chelmsford).

I've posted details on the UKPSG site, anyone is welcome to attend.

Thanks for that, Simon, I'd really love to be there but on the Saturday I'm committed to taking my daughter to her Young Archeologists Club meeting in and on the Sunday I've promised to accompany my wife to a Guinnea Pig show. Oh what an exciting life I lead!:o

However, I would strongly recommend this event as a photo opportunity to anyone else locally who has not been encumbered in advance with familly duties! Why not send Simon a PM and arrange to meet......:)

I hope to catch you some other time, Simon.

I'm definitely hoping to be there (at Cressing) - weather and Personal Events and Lifestyle Manager permitting, of course.

Saturday's forecast (via the Beeb) is currently for "light showers", so we should be in with a chance of some good photography... Really just posting this as a reminder to anyone who's interested!

So there is no confusion, the Medieval Fayre is not until next weekend the Saturday 13th September.

Lets start praying for sun!

The weather is looking good, well at least at the moment!

Should be a good day out

Hi Simon,

looking forward to joining you... and I'll be bringing the 14-35mm f2 and 35-100mm f2 for our Safari Group members to use on the day, along with free Limited Edition Photographers' vests (worth 50 each) for all new members who attend.

Your link above was to the coordination thread, for anyone looking to join us on the day this is the proper link to follow :
