These are some of the scenes that were photographed with staff and volunteers working hard before the Mount Stewart Conversations Weekend opening a few hours later on 17 September. Below is the Stretch Tent where we had some briefings and it was also one of the Bars and used for entertainment.
This is a group being briefed in the Stretch Tent.
This is in the Marquee and these volunteers were waiting for their briefing. This area was used for some of the speakers later. Below the sound men were setting up the sound desk.
This is another group being briefed and
all the staff were in communication by radio.
Bins had to placed in many areas and
more than normal dog bowls were filled with water.
These are some of the food venders setting up shop, so to speak.
This was the Camper Van of Dreams that I showed you other shots of.

Many signs were erected so the public knew where everything was easily.
This is the Main Entrance Hall in Mount Stewart House and they were preparing it for some of the speakers later on.
Now what was he thinking? Do I need to wash that chandelier?
I hope you enjoyed seeing staff and volunteers get Mount Stewart ready, for what turned out to be a FANTASTIC weekend.
I am linking with GOOD FENCES.
