We’re back! We have confirmed our date for 2022 which will be the usual first weekend in February, the 5th and 6th at our normal venue of The County Showground in Stafford. Over the last 10 years or so of utilising the exhibition space at the Showground we have grown the exhibition from using just one of the three halls to the present situation of using all of them. We have been aware that growth in numbers attending has risen considerably, such that it was felt that we have got to the position where saturation point would soon be reached if we continued without attempting to accommodate the rising number of visitors. We have therefore taken the decision that we need to move from the three halls into the much bigger Bingley Hall on the Showground site. This will give us one hall with a floor space almost double in size to the previous three smaller halls. There is a restaurant in the hall seating up to 200 people and much larger and better toilet facilities. A balcony with lift access is also part of the facilities. This is a change that we are sure will be most welcome by those of you who are regular visitors to the show.
At present we are in contact with our existing traders to advise them of the change and will be looking to add more layouts to those who were due to be with us in 2021. A full list of the traders and layouts will be published as soon as we finalise them.
