Sunday night at the Grand Hotel saw an early start to the social part of the programme. Several publisher and vendor representatives kept bar staff busy with frequent purchasing of prosecco until the wee hours, some reportedly lasting until after 4am. The group were sustained by the Noel Coward-esque performance of Bowker's Darren Roberts at the bar's grand piano.
The festivities culminated in a certain eBooks supplier running off with the cardboard cut-out of a man from the hotel lobby, at which time it was decided to call it a night... er, morning.
What a great start to the show.
