A wonderful list of traders and modelers, we all owe a very large debt of gratitude to Iain Lewis for keeping the Blackpool Show going. Show your gratitude by attending the Show otherwise these shows will eventually fail.

I have been looking at some comments from previous years which talk about the venue not been very good because of poor lighting has this been addressed by the organisers?

The lighting has been changed the show has taken up another room 100% better since Ian took over from Mark a year ago.

I attended last year and the lighting was fine.
There was a whole additional area dedicated to model trucks which I found fascinating and a welcome addition.
The traders list is impressive and there are many clubs attending so that together with a visit to the Blackpool with its bracing sea air will make for another great show

Live long and prosper
