It’s where the discerning RISC OS user will be on Saturday, 21st April.

It’s now only a little over a week until this year’s Wakefield Show takes place – so let’s take a quick look at what’s in store for you, the discerning RISC OS user in question.

The Big Ben Club‘s annual gathering, the RISC OS eXperience (English translation) will be taking place this year on Saturday, 12th May, running from 10:00am until 4:00pm. Focusing on the support of Raspberry Pi and RISC OS amongst Dutch users, the event will take place at its usual venue, not far from Amsterdam:

Wijkgebouw de Vuister,
Molenwerf 44,
1541 WR Koog aan de Zaan,
The Netherlands.

Admission is free for both visitors and exhibitors, and the venue supplies refreshments for a reasonable price. There is a car park right outside the main hall at the rear of the building, and there is a railway station nearby and a bus stop right outside the entrance.

It appears that the London Show website was quietly updated a few weeks ago with the date of the 2018 event: 27th October.

The venue will again be the St Giles Hotel, Feltham, and the doors will be open to the public from 11:00am until 5:00pm, with an entry fee of £5.00 on the door for adults and £0.00 for under-16s.

Sadly, though, the time shift it has engaged isn’t some kind of time machine.

The date has been published for the Recursion Computer Science Fair, 2018 – a multi-platform event with a focus on education that takes place at the King Edward VI School in Stratford-upon-Avon. Despite Recursion not being a RISC OS show, there is usually a RISC OS presence in the form of the Midlands User Group, and a small number of other exhibitors. Continue reading »

Meanwhile, I have yet to get the final Wakefield Show video finished and uploaded!

ROUGOL member Leo White, who records the theatre talks at the London Show, has now uploaded the recordings of this year’s talks to YouTube. In alphabetical order:
