Nearly ... but not quite ...

A state of tension permeated the atmosphere

sid01a

There were some dodgy characters around

sid01a

Pressure rising as we approach the Esplanade

sid01a

Yet another dodgy character

The Shropshire Bedlams were a cause for concern

Once on the Esplanade, even more care was needed

sid01a

Some members of the audience became hysterical

sid01a

Shropshire Bedlams were giving trouble

sid01a

As were Martha Rhoden's Tuppeny Dish

sid01a

Members of Martha Rhoden's Tuppeny Dish had to be forcibly removed

sid01a

Hysteria spread through the crowds like wild fire

sid01a

Finally ... their heroes emerged from the Limo to meet the acclaim

sid01a

Fame hasn't changed Bob at all

sid01a

Dave H relaxes after a job well done

sid01a

Mike gives his autograph to a delighted fan

sid01a

Yoda demonstrates the power of the Force

sid01a

Mike ... a bit startled ...

sid01a

Mike ... a bit constipated ???

Cock Fighting

sid01a

Match the face to the buttocks

sid01a

This stall proved popular

sid01a

You too can leapfrog like Great Western

sid01a

After the endless hours of practice ...
... the debut performance by Great Western Majorettes

sid01a

The crowd were enraptured ...

sid01a

... entranced ...

sid01a

... things became a little risqu� ...

sid01a

... and were brought to premature close by an outraged Lady Vasey

sid01a

Great Western - low key

sid01a

Great Western - high key
