    Is there a place people are aiming to stand by? We're hoping to make it but may be late.

    We will be comeing in the Brixton Water Lane entrance and heading up the path until close enough.
    Probably just past the lido, near the old changing/toilet block?

    I'll be the one jumping up and down and squeaking :)

    If I get off the internet now and do what I'm meant to be doing I should be allowed to treat myself to a stand in a damp field.

    If (big if) I get there, I'll be the one with the copper ivy leaf hairband.

    I'll be the one standing outside struggling to be heard over the noise of 30 grand being blown up shouting 'no ifs, no buts, no public sector cuts'

    Nah fuck that shit. Sack a few head Teachers instead and have a bigger display.

    You are right. I will contact Lambeth and suggest the event is sponsored from now on.

    this is true. i cannot deny it.

    i do however assume anyone 'enjoying' this evening's nonsense have never, or will never attend a public sector cuts protest :p

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp

    You are 100% correct, as most people with a strong opinion are :)

    we will be up where we have been most every year (and usually with other urbanites) which is just below the path which runs from Brockwell Hall to the tennis courts - a little along from the bottom of the volleyball pitch and the exercise bars. We will have a little squealer with us.

    Actually.. I want to buy a glostik for her... a trick we learned when we last when camping in the dark... so she can run around but we can see her. Anyone got any ideas of where we might be able to get one this afternoon? Somewhere reasonably close to Brockwell Park would be good but we can travel a bit.

    I think Poundland or the 99p store by the tube do glowsticks.

    If you get stuck I have a couple here. They were got from Poundland in Wandsworth so would be surprised if the cheap shops of Brixton don't have.

    Shame you didn't post an hour earlier as I was just in Nisa and noticed they had fireworks, so they may have had glowsticks

    oh thanks both of you..... Badgers - we may take you up on that. Minnie, I can always pop over to Nisa.

    We have borrowed a car which goes back tomorrow and we have to take it over to Dulwich to get it cleaned out and de-toddlerified at the place next to the Dog Kennel hill Sainsbury's... maybe somewhere over there will have one?

    We're going to the Windmill to see Drunken Balordi afterwards if anyone fancies it.

    as I said on the chitter chatter thread.. that was really fantastic, brilliantly organised, loads of good entertainment beforehand, the display and the way they did the music across the last 200 years was really well thought out.. and the fireworks were beautiful. Fantastic atmosphere in the park tonight - best firework night for years for me - seeing it through the eyes of my little girl for the first time.

    oh and tons of glowsticks for sale... they were making a killing!

    Really huge crowds as well. Excellent.

    Was a great turnout wasn't it. Really good display and a good night :cool:

    I thought about you as my cab was driving past the entrance to the park and I saw a guy selling glowsticks. Came back around 9.00pm and it certainly looked busier than other years. I was most pissed off to be missing it.

    However, I was sitting in a pub called The Pyrotechnist with pictures of Guy Fawkes outside, so I was in keeping with the theme of the evening.

    Disorganised, uncoordinated mess. Summed up Lambeth Council really.

    One or two decent explosions but not worth £36k. They should really spend a little less on the bangs and a little more on someone who knows how to co-ordinate this kind of shit. Less is more.

    Did you go then?
  28. quimcunx

    Hmph. I didn't go. I didn't deserve it. Not that staying in did me much good. Bah humbug.

    Course he did. Didn't you hear him? ;)

    I couldn't hear him over all the people moaning about the disorganisation :(
