Are there any shows that are held in the south of England or are they only aimed at those that live in the Midlands and North.

We lost the best one at Ally Pally, so I don't think there is much, one, I believe at

one of the London race courses.

Yes we did unfortunately I did not make the last one at Ally Pally but did send a piece into the competition there.

I am sure the companies that put on these shows think that the northerners have more money to spend than down south.

The venue was too expensive thus making tickets and stand fees far too great for

traders and public alike. For me it took three hours to get there from west Oxfordshire

by train and a small fortune in fares, but a very enjoyable day, always bought something

good there too.

I would love a show in the south, I was disappointed to see the Nelton show in Detling move to Newark. It seems they have them where the population is densest by that I mean more potential customers within travelling distance.

We watched the Ally Pally show diminish over time and it's demise was not unexpected. Detling seemed well supported judging by the numbers there, so we need one near a well populated area, Home Counties should do it. So why have we not got one?

The Detling show was good and when I went you could not move sometimes not even being able to get to the stand that I wanted
