Looks like an awesome day out! I was hoping to go to Farnbrough or Yevonton (spelling?!) this year with my mates, I was even willing to drive. I think they are roughly 4-5 hours away by car, but we couldn't get the time off work. Looks likes you had fun, I really look forward to the pictures :)

As for sunburn, weird isn't it? I went to Santa Pod once with my mates wearing Hawaiian shirts, it rained all day but we still came home burnt! We think it was our shirts :P
