In many ways, the event epitomised what the future for the Liberal Democrats could be like.
A diverse set of candidates in winnable seats.
A huge turnout of people who have recently joined the party, not campaigned before but are being mobilised in part by the new party pilot project I covered in Lib Dem Newswire.
And a canny bit of fundraising with not only the obligatory bucket but also an iZettle card reader which meant that for every £1 in cash donation in the bucket nearly another £3.50 was taken in card donations.
(Plus I got to tell the story about the Prue Bray board game.)
