Every year at the Summer Spectacular there is a 'It's a Knockout' competition.
This year was no exception. As usual things got very wild and very wet. Here, one of the team dressed as clowns, got a royal soaking as she tried to escape from the bouncy slide (off to the side which wasn't permitted. Tut, tut!).
You couldn't really avoid the water as the guys running the competition took great delight in waiting for people to come over the brow of the castle before hurling water at them. I do have other shots to prove this which I may post later (they are good fun).
