Thank yous and numbers

Very many thanks to everyone who came along deliberately, or bumped into us and followed in the footsteps of Hercules. I was in the Leeds City Museum where the Young Hercules and I saw at least 900 people between 6 and 9 pm. If I add the 100 or so who came through after 9pm (while we were waiting for more maps!), plus the 50 who attended story-telling in the university, that's over 1,000. And that's without counting those people who only saw posters and/or characters out in the city centre. Talking to the characters only one in four groups of people had a map - so that takes us up to 4,000. Not to mention all the people who went in to the Town Hall past the Amazon Queen... Well done to all the cast and also to the crew (and other individuals) who helped no end make it all run smoothly.

I understand that there was a crowd around the Light Entrance as why cleaning up Leeds in the early C20th was like cleansing the Augean Stables seems to capture quite a few people's attention - I *knew* quoting from historical documents about the state of Leeds' sanitary arrangements back then was a good idea, honest!
