Jokers' Masquerade were privileged to have a piece within the BBC's 'South Today' regional opt out news programme, broadcasted on Monday 20th December. Included within the live broadcast from Basingstoke
shopping centre was an article discussing the contrasts between consumer online Internet shopping and that
of High Street retail trade. This was especially topical as the High Street was hoping for a bumper 'last minute' buying spree as previous week's sales were low compared to perceived booming Internet sales. Our input and
contrast was that by that week, all our pre-Christmas shipping would be complete and that the last few days before
Christmas would be quiet for us.
