August 2004

The Sproutlore guys showed a keen sense of conrunning by chooing a venue with no bedrooms, for one day, crap transport (name a north London borough without a tube - Brentford is one) and then on the second day they gate-crashed pubs, looked through the fence of a football ground and all because of a bench. YES they ran a convention because of a Bench. Despite this, Robert Rankin was a tour de force with his live band, people dressed up and everyone got a photo with him on THAT bench.
