Kenko, I lived round the corner in Queens Rd, so was a frequent visitor, seem to remember it was around September or October but no doubt some member will come up with a more precise time - it was a long time ago !! Eric

It is still in the same place Carolina. Well it was earlier this year when we went there for the day. Never did visit the Tulip Festival Shardeen.

Yes drove past it again last night and all the lights were on. I wonder how it makes any money especially winter time.

:strawberry:Not sure Carolina but guess it must if it stays open. Mind you most of the caravan sites near by are open eleven months of the year and being centrally heated these days would use them in the winter.:strawberry:

The Tulip Festival later renamed the Spring Festival has been mentioned a few times, the fair was a great addition to an entertaining day. I must have visited every festival for the first 10 years at least. These photos must be from the first one as they are dated 1962.

I was just thinking, if that photo was taken looking towards Smethwick then the kilns could be at the Ruskin pottery.
