It was o.k but not really enough to do. Took 40 minutes to do the one guest i needed and then browse a couple of stalls i was interested in. And that was it. I should have known better but never been to Sheffield before and thought it would be a little busier.I also had food and drink they tried to take off me. Absolutely nothing to do with security despite their daft claims. Its simply to force people to buy their overpriced food within the venue. Nobody is fooled by these sort of claims any more.Most venues don't enforce these rules even if they have it in black and white on their website , as they know it causes ill will .Normally i don't take food to venues as i use local shops like the ones outside the Olympia but i didn't know the sheffield area so took my own to save time.None of these security people ( if you can even call them that) have the knowledge on how to spot something thats possibly dangerous due to a lack of proper training and half hearted bag searches. On my way home i realised in the smaller bag i still had some of my work stuff in the bag from the previous day including a knife i use for cutting cardboard.I came out in a rush as i got up late.The woman who checked my bags didn't bother with the smaller one ( missing the knife) and the larger bag has a false bottom and some side pockets none of which were checked ( because she wanted to make a big thing about no food which was placed on top of my big bag) making the whole thing completely pointless and just a gesture.They missed the knife but got the sausage roll! obviously the food and drink thing not an issue for showmasters ( or the venues poor token security) as you just hire the venue and no control over the local staff but showmasters could pass on peoples complaints. If the venue risk losing a booking over bad feedback they might change their greed. If other venues like Olympia and the NEC can do it when they are so much busier then they can too.These venues have no outside food and drink on their website too but they seem to accept its not really enforceable so they ignore it and use a bit of common sense.Anyway i just stepped aside in Sheffield and ate my food in front of them.
