'It's a pleasure to work with the Westgate Hall team. I’ve been running the record fair at this lovely venue for many years, and the event is still going from strength to strength. The Hall team is friendly and efficient to deal with, and the event always runs smoothly on the day. Long may our partnership continue!’
