    I'm exhibiting. I've got a table for Fredric Effects to try/buy and another to show-off some communist-era guitars and amps. I did mention to the organiser that they outta put a notice on this forum.

    Cool. :)

    I was asked to participate, but sadly that date is a no-go, work-wise.

    Actually it looks like I'm not going to this. The organisers felt having stuff for sale would cheapen the 'wow look at the guitars' ethos of the show :-/

    Yeah, I was told the same thing re. the idea behind the event - exhibition only, no sales.

    However, on reflection, this seems a little odd, given that numerous exhibitors are actually dealers...

    I'm not at this one H - Not sure I get what it is about but good luck to everyone involved - I'm actually busy that weekend with family commitments - Not long to go until Crewe show - Are you exhibiting again ?

    Not planning to, but you never know...

    I’ll be there, one way or another though! :)

    Is the Crewe show a good one? I was thinking of doing this as a one-dayer, rather than booking a hotel as usual for the Northern shows.

    I’ve aways found it to be good - not massive though.

    No where near as large as Kempton - A good show with around 450/500 visitors and maybe 50/60 stalls - I always do okay at this show, but there are larger shows - Maybe Northampton in Sept and Milton Keynes (new show in Nov)

    More used than new regarding guitars

    Indeed - and that's why I like it so much - no overkill re. quantity and always something interesting! :)
