Good to see Tony Wright operating a small layout for a change. 8)

Nice photos Alex, suprised I didn'spot you taking that many! Had tickets from son and daughter in law. They were a present last Christmas originally for the show at Alli Pally but that claashed with a major event at Wembley, which meant nothing but top price rail fares so Warners swapped them for the Peterborough one. Quite enjoyed the trip over from Stratford. Nice to have no layouts I'd seen before. Kept my hands firmly in pockets today, apart from coffee and lunch. Mrs W went wild and bought half a dozen cards from the artist chappie. Saving up for Warley. :wink:

Another thanks for sharing from me. I'm off there tomorrow and looking forward to it, so that was a nice taster.

It's only just up the road from me so I go every year - can't guarantee I'll be able to keep my hands in my pockets though, but we'll see :)

I was the one walking around with my other half huffing allot and playing on her phone :lol: - she was very good really! I was there for about two hours in all but it was just over an hour each day to get there. We did stop off cloths shopping on the way home so all is well!

It's the first 'big' show I have been to and I did expect a larger ratio of layouts to trade stalls but really did enjoy myself - just wish they would plan these events just after payday :lol:

Normally I would have gone to the Chelmsford show which was also on at the weekend but now we have moved to two are about the same distance from me I thought I would try something new. I think I will go again next year but maybe get the train to save having to spend the same time again shopping to make it up to my other half :lol:

I get the impression there have been slightly fewer trade stands in the last couple of years compared to previously, but I might be wrong.

Certainly I remember the Atrium having a lot more in it than it does now, but maybe they've just used up more space at the rear of the main arena instead - I think that may have been unused in the past.

I do still enjoy it, and usually spend around four hours there, as I did again this year. I would stay for longer but the old feet start to seize up a bit after a while!

My other half has expressed an interest in coming with me next year, which would be quite nice to be honest.

She's only been with me once before, on which occasion the one thing I remember about her being there was when she told another lady present that she really liked her handbag, and asked where she got it. Which was nice.

I went there yesterday and was surprised at how few people were there. I overheard an exhibitor complaining at the low numbers and a trader mumbling at his low sales figures.
