Hi John,

Yandles is a good show but there's also the Kent show in March, European Woodworking show in September plus a whole host of other throughout the year and around the country.

Harrogate is generally accepted as being the best show-widest range of kit and demos.

Well worth the 4 hour drive (in my case) to get there.

Hi John, Yandles and the Classic hand tools (Europenan woodworking show) are both good but I would not recommend any of the others.

Years ago I used to go to all the shows in England as a matter of course because I enjoyed meeting up with friends who were exhibiting, demonstrating or just attending.

For the last couple of years I`ve only bothered with the European show & the Harrogate show, difficult to choose a favourite& both well worth visiting, just a shame they fall so close together.

Cheers.

Doug

I find the SE show at Detling very good for general tools but there are not a lot of machines on display, but then it is quite a new show so maybe it will have more as the years go on.

I am very fortunate that it is only 1/2hr drive from my house down here in Kent

Thanks for all your replies, I had hoped there would be something in London--an easy train journey--however the European show looks interesting, not to far from my sisters so B&B not a problem. I have been to the Harrogate show and it only a 2 hour drive for me.

Unfortunatly the other shows are I feel a little too far away for me.

Regards John

PS located in North Lancashire.
