Crossgates had its own mini-feast. Comprised mostly of stalls [roll the penny, hoop the bottle, one armed bandits] and only ever one ride which was a waltzer.Held on the waseland beside the station [site of the Ritz cinema] it came to an end with the building of the Blockbuster video / Currys store, now M&S sometime in the 80's [82?].

Did the feast really run for so long? I remember being taken as a youngster in the late 50's - early 60's, the Ritz closing I think in '65. I don't remember the feast running much after that,

Towards the end of the feast, ie the late 70's and I think 1980, the Crossgates "feast" didn't happen, but it certainly did in 82, because that was the last year in which I competed at the Civil Service Sports Day at Chiswick and the coach dropped us off outside the Arndale and we went in the Station pub and got pi***d then went on the waltzer before continuing on to the Devon to top up the drink.

Looks like you're a long way from home these days liits. was it a few undulating turns on the waltzer after The Station that helped make room for the further offerings from The Devon by any chance!!
