Spirit of Summer is nearly here

images-5The Spirit of Summer is on next week at Olympia. I love this show but here are the rules, you have to arrive early and limit yourself to no more than two hours or you will melt like the witch in the Wizard of Oz. Why would you want to tramp the aisles of Olympia on a lovely spring morning? First it will get you in a good picnic mood while surrounded by hampers, unbreakable crookery, deck chairs, rugs, hammocks, t’shirts, canvas shoes and rash vests galore. Second for the more organised bod, you can start Christmas shopping now. Oh and top tip; anyone who has little children or grandchildren, this expo is a cornucopia of stuff you don’t need but will want and that makes having tinies so much more fun. On from wednesday 14th May to Saturday 17th May and open 10am-6pm, tickets are about £16 in advance or £18 on the day. Women (truthfully you don’t get many men at these Spirit fandangos) are normally bused in from the home counties and beyond for this show, we have only to slide down to High Street Ken. www.spiritofsummerfair.co.uk
