With just a week to go until the biggest Red-White-and-Blue yet, we are pleased to give you further details of five major attractions, which between them illustrate the way in which the event is expanding, diversifying (we in the BNP love a bit of diversity!) and coming of age:
1) Record number of overseas speakers
Back by popular demand, US country & Western singer Traven Tucker (who will not be performing a musical entertainment set, but who will be presenting songs in a cultural educational context);
Representative from the Australian nationalist movement;
Guests from Sweden and the Czech Republic - your chance to exchange views and make friends with friends from other countries facing similar problems to Britain.
2) Home-Brewed Traditional Drink Competition
Entries of home-brewed beer, cider, wine and other traditional drinks will be judged by a panel of three renowned experts, headed by former BNP National Press Officer and competition level pianist €˜Doc' Stuart Edwards.
Judging and prize-giving Saturday afternoon. Please ensure that all entries are registered at the Traditional Food Hall by 1 p.m. on Saturday, in bottles with a simple label giving type of drink and date made, but without other identifying details. Prizes as announced in July's British Nationalist.
3) Folk Song Competition. Saturday after the fireworks
Unaccompanied and unamplified folk song by between four and six singers. From a region of the United Kingdom or in any European language.
First prize: 18 pt polypin of real ale (re-racked, so it's ready to broach and drink the moment you win it! Second prize: Flagon of scrumpy cider. Third prize: Single can of lager.
Give it a go! It is expected that entries in this first year will vary somewhere between the dodgy to the desperately dire, but we've got to start somewhere, and since the local Jobsworth Killjoys won't allow us to listen to amplified bands on stage then we'll have to learn to do it ourselves spontaneously and unplugged.
As a matter of fact, that's the way it should be anyway, so please help us to turn the unfair restrictions which have been imposed on us all to our advantage - let's show them that the English, and all our cousins of closely kindred stock, haven't forgotten how to sing! Guest appearance by the RWB Morris Dancers.
4) Children's Competition. Drawing and poem
The previously announced (July British Nationalist) Children's entries for drawings and poems inspired by the RWB will be judged on Saturday afternoon by a panel of three party members with extensive teaching experience.
The same judges will also give their verdict on the Adults' poem/poetic prose entries and on the open RWB in a Photograph competition. Please ensure that all entries are presented at the Traditional Food Hall by 1 p.m. on Saturday, without identifying marks.
5) Widest range ever on Excalibur merchandise
Both Saturday and Sunday will see dozens of stalls from local branches, regions and national BNP operations. One of the largest will be the Excalibur stand, complete with a massively expanded range of merchandise - everything you want from books to jewellery, DVDs to T-shirts. Plus all of the current catalogue of Great White Records releases.
6) Smoking bar - we've got the unhealthy snacks, you bring the drink and tobacco
Probably the most politically incorrect bar in the country! Two sides off the specially designated marquee mean that you can legally smoke yourself to death if you want. We'll help you with pork scratchings, crisps, Mars Bars and other thoroughly unhealthy snacks. Plus sea-food sold (we hope) by nubile young serving lasses. Background music and atmospheric lighting. Even better, because you've got to bring your own booze it'll be far cheaper than a normal Friday or Saturday night out. What more could you ask for?
Non-smokers don't despair! The Traditional Food Hall will be a strictly smoke-free zone throughout the whole weekend. Watch this space for news of the menu and attractions at this brand new addition to the Red-White-and-Blue.
