Couple of days before from a friend, no idea how he knew but there are remarkably effective rumour networks in this city, there's no way something that big would have stayed quiet.

Hi Jaguar - the event wasn't well publicised before the week it was to happen - all a bit subliminal and uninspiring as the London promoters, a company called Artichoke, wanted to maintain the surprise element - nice Catch 22 there!

First day photos bore out that they achieved their objective as only a handful of people discovered the rocket and even the arrival of the elephant on the first day proper drew only moderate crowds.

Luckily the national papers ran with it full time thereafter and also word-of-mouth ensured the attendance enjoyed exponential growth! Last day (Sunday) was jam-packed!

If you missed it and still want to see it, then you might do as I am thinking - catch it in Calais at the end of September. I'm contemplating taking a wine-buying trip to Calais one day that weekend to take in lunch at Chateau Cocove plus a bit of elephant as dessert! Perhaps we could meet up if you decide to do the same...

Oh, Guest is your handle. For a second there I thought The Cellar was letting the great unwashed post without even signing up.

Welcome!
