Coming up this weekend.

In my opinion this is the best show of all the ones I visit in a year.

I’ve never been, I’ve been told there is lots of modern image layouts which I really want to see but it’s a 3 hour drive from me!

Couple of hours from High Wycombe. Very tempting.

I've done Southampton to Crewe, with a couple of hours at Stafford thrown in, and back in a day but it's a hell of a long day .Mind you, anything's better than hospital visiting. but I've got to look after SWMBO. She'd give me hell if I said I'm off to Stafford to meet Little Clare !!!

There is a decent bus service to and from Stafford station for the exhibition. I think it is free too and uses a heritage bus. I used it last year even though getting there by train for me means 3 times the distance.

Sometimes the car park can be, err, amusing to get out of if it has rained a lot. And it is saying heavy rain for Saturday!
