Best line-up at East Fortune that I can remember for quite some time. Very much looking forward to this one.

...and yes, if it could not hose it down in a torrential downpour for the entire afternoon, well, that would be delightful.

No official timing but it tends to be last on doesn't it? (When the weather has turned for the worse!)

Is anybody aware of how the thunderstorm forecast for the East Lothian area tomorrow might affect the programme? Is it likely to be a complete wash out like 2017?

Checked Met Office. Yesterday it had forecast Thunder for 1pm on Saturday, but now it's saying it will rain, very good visibility, but no Thunder.
