0 - Now in beeless retirement!
I'm there all 3 days so please drop by. The total numbers going to this show are much less than the Spring Convention at Stoneleigh and as it is spread over several days it should be a lot less hectic. Hopefully this will give us the opportunity to actually talk to people. If you don't know who we are just shout "Rooftops" in the trade hall!

just shout "Rooftops"

I remember shouting the name of a long past pop tune artist which was being played over the PA. I talked several trade stand holders and none of us could recall the artist.

When the name finally came to me, I shouted it very loudly so all the trades people would know the answer (the tune was playing again). The whole hall went astounding quiet for several seconds and my wife tried to hide under a table!

Got the message across and, us and the stand holders (as my wife is well known in that particular pass-time/hobby circle), all had a laugh as we progressed arond the hall throughout the rest of the afternoon.

Just for the record, and for the unlikely chance that anyone on here was there that day, the tune was 'Venus in Blue Jeans' and the singer was Mark Wynter.

Shows my age and my mischievous streak.

Regards, RAB

We may go.
Can you just turn up at the lectures or do you have to book?
(I know you have to book for workshops)

Polystyrene & lots more next year again hopefully
We're going for the first time and have booked workshops.

We want to have a look at suppliers due to our chosen one still not having given us prices that we asked for on a substantial amount of equipment.

'Shop local' never seems to work out somehow.

Looking forward to it and meeting others.

johnandyrob,

If you have pre-booked tickets you may be able to find a home for them on this site.

:smilielol5::smash::party:

I thought it was a web cam of bees...and then I look and its of people mooching about. What a giggle!!!

Have you seen the slide show though??? I really liked that... you gets shots of stalwarts of the beekeeping world and of the exhibits and of the judges judging. Brilliant!

Look out! There were four people in there a moment ago (perhaps one was asleep though). The slideshow is quite enteratining as you say Poly.
