London show set to be the biggest yet

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.

The group are obviously going to have quite a challenge fitting everyone in – but the end result should be a show you don’t want to miss! Whether you’re interested in older or newer hardware, software to while away the time or help you organise your life – there will be something here for you. Highlights include:

New hardware: R-Comp will have the ARMX6 computer on sale, along with Ultra-HD displays, and CJE Micro’s will be demonstrating where they’re at with their new Cortex-A15-based Eastwood machine-with-no-name.

Productivity software: Richard Keefe will be showing off the latest version of Impression-X (I’m sure a website will be coming soon!), and Sine Nomine will have Impact (amongst other things) on their stand.

Games: There will be new games for old (8-bit) hardware on the Tricky Gaming (website MIA!) stand, a new game for RISC OS called Legends of Magic on the Ambiguous Contrasts stand, and there will be old games to play on the Soft Rock Software stand and a games arcade organised by the Archimedes Software Preservation Project.

Reading matter: The latest issues of both Archive and Drag ‘n Drop should be available on the day.

There will also be robots to play with, thanks to Neil Fazakerley, a BBC Micro providing a live Twitter feed in the form of TwitBeeb, raucous rackets pleasant tunes from 3rd Event Technologies and RiscDJ (website MIA!) – and much more besides.

And, of course, the show will be the first chance since Wakefield (unless you attend the next ROUGOL meeting) to find out what RISC OS Open Ltd have been up to and what they are planning.

So, come Saturday, 24th October, 2015, the place you want to be is:

St Giles Hotel,
Hounslow Road,
Feltham,
TW14 9AD.

The venue is easily found by car (with parking available on-site or just down the road at Feltham Assembly Halls), there are bus stops nearby, Feltham railway station is just over the road, and Heathrow airport is just a short bus trip away.

The event will be open from 11:00am until 5:00pm, and entry is £5.00 for adults or free for under-16s.
