With yet another successful Southwest Show disappearing in the rear view mirror (report coming soon…ish), and the Wakefield Show now looming on the horizon, there has been a small amount of behind the scenes discussion about issues surrounding the RISC OS shows in general.

An idea put forward in one of those discussions was for a general mailing list for people to discuss recent and upcoming events – and that idea has now been turned into reality with the RISC OS shows and events discussion list. Continue reading »

Feltham’s calling to the faraway towns, come along and see the best OS around!

It is now just one week until I’ll be heading home from Feltham (and will have already long since reached home, looking at the time) – which means it’s just five days until I’ll be heading in the direction of Feltham.

The day between those two journeys, of course, is when I’ll be in Feltham, exhibiting at this year’s London Show, organised by the RISC OS User Group of London – and here’s why you, the discerning RISC OS user, should be there as a visitor1: Continue reading »

Right, I’ve been up to Wakefield, had a cup of tea and a little walk, and now it’s… er, June!?

The annual trip to the North for RISC OS users – the Wakefield Acorn & RISC OS Computer Show – took place this year on 16th April, at the Cedar Court Hotel, Denby Dale, near Wakefield – the venue at which it originally started in 1996 before setting off for pastures new, and to where it returned some years ago and has remained ever since.

One does not simply walk into Mordor Wakefield. It’s better to go by car or train.

This year’s Wakefield Show will be taking place on 16th April, which is now just over two weeks away. The show will take place in the combined Cypress, Hawthorne and Oak Suites of its usual venue, the rather nice – and very easy to find – Cedar Court Hotel, which is a stone’s throw from junction 39 of the M1, so readily accessible by car.

Breathe in – likely to be standing room only!

This year’s London Show – which takes place in five weeks time, on 24th October, 2015 – is shaping up to be the biggest yet, with an impressive 27 exhibitors currently listed on the show website. Those exhibitors include plenty of familiar faces at RISC OS shows, and quite a number who are new – be that to shows in general, or just this one.

And to cap all that, it seems that some of the regular attendees have asked for bigger tables. Continue reading »

Don’t say you haven’t been given plenty of advance notice!

RISC OS South West Show

The date for the South West Show, usually the first show of the year, was initially published on this site in the 2013 Portsmouth Show report – but, in case you missed it (along with the fairly large advert1 for the show which, at the time of writing, is staring at you from the left hand side of this page), it’s set for Saturday, 1st March, 2014.

At this moment, the exhibitor list stands at just shy of two dozen and includes the bigger RISC OS names, along with plenty of smaller companies and individuals showing off their latest software and hardware projects. The current list is: Continue reading »

Organise it and they a handful of them will come.

It’s now been two weeks and a day since the Midlands Midsummer MUG Show 2013 took place, and people are telling me that it’s about time I sat down and wrote about it! Well, they aren’t, perhaps because I’ve already said in various places that I’m busy, but they’re probably thinking it. So here’s that report.

I’ve flicked a coin, and it told me to take an anti-clockwise tour around the show. Continue reading »
