Ooooh, now this really appeals to me. Shame it's during school holidays as it would mean leaving Debbie without the car for the day (during term time she would be at work) and she won't be best pleased! I'll have to sweet-talk her when she gets home. I expect there will be a huge demand for this, so getting tickets probably won't be easy anyway.

A one in a hundred chance of winning an E-P5 is pretty good odds! :D

Well, I've done the difficult bit, negotiated permission from Debbie should I get tickets, and I've applied. Anyone else applying? :)

I applied a few days ago also.

Would love to have done the wildlife shoot next week, but due to the weather being so hot, I cant as nowhere to leave my dog :(

I should think we will hear soon, if we have been successful. It would be a shame if nobody from the forum got to go; even just one representative would enable us all to share the experience through their pictures. :)

Yay, just got mine. Need to work out how to get there now, only an hour from work so I might be able to squeeze it into a longish day without taking any holiday
