Evening BBQ

 As well as the vintage juke box, with everyones' requested tunes on it, another big favourite was the photo booth where you could take a Polaroid picture, with or without a moustache, to attach to your "best wishes" messages which you typed on a vintage typewriter.These were then pinned to washing line and attracted a lot of interest as people were very inventive with their comments.
