Explaining the Results

  1. Statistically, almost the same number of people attended TGMTE 2018 as attended the 2016 event.  When the numbers are broken down into Adults VS Children, this year far more children attended than did adults and this resulted in significantly lower takings at the gate.
  2. To accommodate the greater demand for table space by stall holders and the addition of the G Scale layout, the organisers had to hire 2 Marquee tents which added to the costs.
