Does anyone have a picture of what happened to the marquee at Shrewsbury?

Here is a photo of the failed connection at the roof apex at Towersey. The repair was left in place until the end (photo was taken as the marquee was being cleared of sound and lighting). Danco replaced a cracked main end vertical member if I understood correctly. The picture shows steel wire rope bound around to stop the strut falling down.

Not quite Rolls-Royce, more Heath Robinson?
