    The Blackpool show was the best its been for many years, venue is a bit dated, but, we were there for the models and traders, superb on both counts. Iain and Dave do a splendid job of organising the show, free parking, and, if you want a great deal on food and accomodation. unlike other shows there has been a lot of diversifying, Tanks and Trucks, see how other modelers do things! the bring and buy was doing great business.
    Bring on next year. Just a point, they have some charity stands, RNLI etc, all the profits go to charity, not some fat cats pocket. Iain and Dave, I salute you

    Hi Marky, If you looking at the Warwick show, the international Plastic show is on the same weekend in Telford, worth a good look, some overlap to us, traders galore

    I go for the traders mainly, saves paying p&p, and you can cherry pick the items you want, also some deals going on, Component shop had a few show prices.
    I bought 2 x 12v-10amp pb batteries for only £13.15 each, a good saving, I think Iain has done a great job with the show, and free parking, all you had to do was write down your car reg number, simples.😐

    Cheers, Peter

    if it was held in a fancy venue the prices to vendors, traders, and clubs would go up, and so would the entrance fee.

    For those that went just for the show, and not the depth of the carpet, it was great, and well done to the organisers for bucking the trend of dying shows.

    For those that stayed the weekend, well come on, Blackpool offers thousands of alternatives for accommodationπŸ’€ I parked outside on the road, I believe that the onsite parking was free for visitors? that's iutself in Blackpool is worth something whilst the illuminations are on. There cant be many hotels that can offer that floorspace?

    Might give it a go again next year, all being well. Pleased to hear it's been given a bit of a makeover, it certainly needed it. I'll try the fish and chip shop too.!

    I think you might see a change in the venue now Nerys, agree, the lighting a few years ago was diabolic, but now much improved, and they have spruced up the ballroom, where the main show is held, but there is another room, where they have the bring & buy, as well as the tanks display and a large truck display, with a full road layout, a brilliant F&C shop, just round the corner, you can eat in, we take away, and munch in our car, very reasonable prices, eat in Haddock,chip,peas bread & butter plus tea or coffee all for Β£6.99, and very nice too.πŸ€—

    Blackpool would be a better show if it was held in a better venue. The standard and number of exhibits and traders is very good but I think the venue is rather tatty. Went there a couple of years ago to a radio rally (Alice's scene) and there were no lights on in the halls. Not a great help if you wanted to look at things! However, I agree with Ken on the standard of the fish and chips.

    Cheers,
    Nerys
