You would think that being a metal festival that burgers are the one thing that they would have had sorted by now.... you would have thought at least...

There's plenty of burger places on the list.

Never understood why the pasta places are some of the most expensive when you consider portion size, it's one of the cheapest ingredients going.

Can't remember the name but seems the Dutch shirt vendor won't be here which is a blessing and a curse, got some decent obscure shirts there over the years (and he usually did a few at a cheap price) and as a consequence spent a few bob there too :lol:

Surprised the fish and chip van isn't on the list.

Oh not the place that sold CDs as well? That was the best store, always had some good finds and most were dirt cheap too.

The Dutch place is on there.

I always used to like it as it was a great way of getting rid of the dreaded left over Euro as he took them and it worked out much cheaper. I think he cottoned on to that though.

Will have pop in that Dr Steel that's listed as they've not been before. So many shops just have the same patches they had the year before, be good to have fresh piles to rifle through.

Obviously I'm excluding Bob from this, he's always got new stuff.

Electric Amphetamine rings a bell but I could be confusing it with somewhere else

Think thats a separate place but that one was really good as well, picked up a cd for £4 and later found it for £12 in the local HMV :o
