Bible for would-be showmen
WHERE do you start when you have been volunteered to arrange a fete, show or other outdoor function?
The Showmans Directory* would be a good place, it lists just about everything you need from essentials to entertainment.
Marquees and mobile loos, commentators and chariot racers, stilt walkers and Sumo wrestlers are just a few of the entries and the show dates diary could prove useful to anyone wanting to guard against a clash. TG
