Great to see everyone out enjoying the day, enjoying life and the freedom to do what they enjoy and not give in to fear.

My thoughts are with the people of London after the horrible events of last night, also my thoughts are with the people of Manchester.

People going to events like this despite what has happened shows the resilience of this nation, and the refusal to let hatred and fear rule our lives. Enjoy your day if you are in Birmingham.

There was no obvious increased security at the event on Saturday. Not a bag search, nor any Police, but thankfully all okay.

That’s odd, we had our bags searched every time we went in the building on Friday and Saturday, and also saw sniffer dogs patrolling three times.
