Dear, dear Argus, can't you just be a bit more thoughtful and tell us BEFORE the Bank Holidays where these (and other, non-BH) events are so that we don't find out about them afterwards? You are a bit behind with most of them, you know.

I have to agree with the comments above. I just picked up my copy of the Argus to find that there were things going on that I would have liked to have gone to, but didn't know about...Instead, I travelled to flipping Swansea!
