1. A bunch of gentlemen dressed up in cricket whites.
2. A branded Latitude piano, out in the open where anyone can have a tinkle.
3. A fashion show that saw the participants walk directly through the lake to the sound of “Anarchy In The UK”.

7. A toilet, still clean, even on the third day of camping. Unbelievable, really.
