Exhibitors, traders and organisers are busy today getting everything ready for the weekend. A walk around the main halls and the outside exhibit areas revealed people busy unloading, displaying, polishing, chatting (!) and generally making ready for Saturday and Sunday. Here are a few photos – a taster – that we gathered this afternoon to give you an idea of how empty spaces are being transformed by hard work into an exciting show.
