A cheap wig from a joke shop would solve the hair colour problem, and then there is propbly tights that would be the right colours

Well, once again, we will be rolling down in the veggie truck of doom.

Feel sorry for us as we get up at 4.30 to make sure we are ready to roll while you lot sleep off your Saturday nights.

Got a few new things to show off this month too, been busy making.

The usual canes and floggers + a couple of new Lorica items which may well become a regular thing, and some new "Willow stick" canes that pack a bit of a punch.

See you all Sunday.

I would very much like to take this moment to apologise to all the people at the after-party for the large amount of bad singing, loud squealing and general tomfoolery that happened over in the corner!!

But I had a bloody good time!! *winces & adjusts the cushions*

Bind me, beat me, bugger me!

I am so very disappointed and I don't think I will bother with the LFF again !

It was at the April LFF 3 years that my partner and I met the first time and we wanted to celebrate there and had arranged the entire day around that. Had lunch early so we could be out of the door 1pm allowing 2 whole hours to make our way from Sussex to the venue.

In the end we ran into traffic and it took us a bit more than 2 hours to make it. We arrived at 3:05pm just to be told we'd have to pay an entry fee of £8 a head. I tried to explain but I was treated very dismissively and in the end I decided not to attend and instead spend the shopping money elsewhere.

In the dozens of times I attended the LFF I only attended the after-party a single time, long enough to decide this it's not for me. Yet my desire to not wish to attend the after party counts for nothing if I happen to arrive a minute after an arbitrarily set cut off time.

This is entirely unsatisfactory and unless I happen to be already in London earlier that day, I will never try to make the effort again to attend the LFF.

The problem is that a cut off time is just that and if there's an allowance of 2 minutes here, 5 minutes there, the question becomes where do you draw the line? It's a fixed time to stop arguments of one person being given a 5 minute leeway and no flexibility for others. It's not really a huge difference in price either, considering you're still getting all the same aspects whichever price you pay. Public transport is mostly always crappy and appalling on bank holiday weekends, so it's something else that's worth bearing in mind. It's a shame you won't be attending in the future but this is a democracy and I hope other events can meet with your expectations.

I remember arriveing a few minutes after 3pm once due to various delays. Unfortunate perhaps, annoying certainly, but no disaster.

The only point on which I would disagree with @Leadfoot is "democracy". LFF and many other events are not democratic. They are run by the organisers who can choose how much they wish to charge and also who they wish to admit. If they get it right then the event flourishes, get it wrong and it fails.

Obviously it's part of the democratic country and system in which we live that anyone is free to start such an event without having to seek permission from "the authorities".

I got held up a couple of months back by some slow moving protest march and arrived after 3. OK we both paid an extra £3 each - it happens!!

Slight misunderstanding. The 'democracy' was in reference to the outside world at large, which can mean anything from "other events are available" through to "sod off and annoy somebody else".

Discuss.

Put very eloquently. No disagreement at all.

Had a great time at the market. Thank you to all the willing volunteers for the caning demo - especially as my original demo subbie's car had broken down so I had to rope in a new volunteer on the day!

Looking forward to the next one.
