A rather motley crew if you ask me. Has the local constabulary been prepared? Have the local pubs received extra beer shipments?
These are important questions.
Two years ago, the local constabulary stepped in and the entire show had to be postponed, although it is an open question whether losing mild-mannered Martin Smith from the original list and replacing him with "Dangerous" Denis Grey made policing the event when it finally took place any easier.
As for liquid sustenance, Newark has three micro breweries. It also stands on the river Trent, so, if necessary, extra supplies can be brought in by water from Burton-upon-Trent (proving that water does have its uses).
