Entertainment at the Bandstand
While clubs were arriving from far and near there was plenty to keep them entertained.

Official Start of Heartbeat Hike Wicksteed
As people finished they had their book stamped, were given a medal and were offered a drink of water.
No pictures of this actually happening as this was a hectic time, so this was taken after the rush had gone.
More entertainment at the Bandstand
While people ate their packed lunch there was more entertainment at the Bandstand
Phab goodies on sale
Music from Acoustic Us – a four piece Northampton band playing a variety of music.
George Martini doing a Zumba session as part of the afternoon activities – an amazing amount of energy on such a hot day.
More music with Helen and Garth
Some members bought discounted (with Phab membership card) wrist bands and went on the rides, but others had a more sedate train ride !
Packing up and going home
We packed up the Registration desk, and loaded the minibus, ready for the journey home.
