More! That's the word to sum up this year's RWB Family Festival! More fun. More stalls. More politics. More fairground rides. More food variety. More camping space. More great speakers. More for EVERYONE to do.
All this despite the fact that our organisers this year have had to work extra hard to overcome the most disgraceful Labour council bullying and obstruction. It seems that every time Labour's own woes hit the headlines their councillors and bureaucrats get even more spiteful towards the BNP.
As a result, and despite the fact that there has never been any trouble at the RWB, we have been banned from having live bands playing and from selling alcohol. Despite the outrageousness of the situation we will not be defying these rules in any way.
There will be even more on to do and watch than ever, but some of it will be new and different from previous years when live bands dominated the running order. There will still be plenty of incidental background music, as this is totally legal as long as it is recorded, spontaneous or culturally educational. And there'll be more to see than ever.
We've got a record number of stalls booked, the best line-up of top speakers ever. We've added 2,000 square feet of extra marquee space for the Traditional Food Hall alone.
You can sit and chat with friends at the coffee shop with proper china mugs and a panini or a crepe, or watch the BNP Morris Dancing Side, or take part in a serious discussion on the possibilities of Home-Schooling. Plus the old favourites: Football competition, tug-o-war, Punch & Judy Show, children's parade and a firework display.
And you've still got time to sort out your entries for the new competitions: Child's drawing of the RWB; Child's poem about the RWB; adult poem or short prose essay on the RWB; Best traditional home-brewed bottle (beer, wine, cider, whatever - if you make it, we'll judge it); Best home-brew bottle from kit.
You can bring as much of your favourite tipple with you for you and your friends as you like, but none is to be sold in any way, including via old tricks on the lines of “A free pint with every £2.50 matchbox”. So please don't bring alcohol to sell, as we will only have to stop you from putting the entire great weekend at risk.
In a way, the ban on live music is going to do us a favour. It's made us think long and hard about how to keep the RWB developing as an event where people - especially kids - get to do fun things rather than watching others. It's making us concentrate more on real British culture, on fun traditions, on positive politics, on education - on the things, in fact, that make the RWB different from any other event in the country.
So make it a long weekend. Join all the campers and caravaners arriving on Friday. The Food Hall and all sorts of attractions will already be open and entertaining BNP members and guests. Buy your tickets on the gate. We look forward to seeing you there.
