Wakefield 2003 Announced

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 11:32, 5/1/2003 | , ,
 
This just in from Chris Hughes...
The Wakefield RISCOS Computer Club is pleased to be able to announce its intention to run another show in 2003.

The show will be on Saturday, 10th May 2003, and open to the public between 10 am and 4:30 pm. It has been decided to run only a one day event this time, due to the low attendances on the Sunday in the past, and in order to be able to continue with the show. Although we had looked at some alternative venues for this years smaller show, we have again decided it will be back at its usual venue, for the past few years, of the Thornes Park Athletic Stadium.

It is again intended to have a show theatre, but this will be in a different location within the building to previous years since the room used before is no longer available.

We also plan on the usual charity stall, and this year everything must go by the end of the day, so there will be some real bargains to be had.

There will be no advance ticket sales available this year, in order to help to keep costs down. Tickets will cost 5 (under 16's will be free if accompanied by an adult), but large parties of under 16's arriving together will be subject to the normal entry charge.

More details will be released as soon as possible.

A website will also be going active as soon as possible.

http://www.wakefieldshow.org.uk/

Our principal sponsors so far this year are R-Comp/R-Comp Interactive, Stuart Tyrrell Developments and Spellings Computer Services

The show will again be run and organised by the members and volunteers of the Wakefield RISCOS Computer Club in their spare time. Please do support both the dedication of these volunteers and the exhibitors attending.

Unregistered user "principle sponsors" ? What, they ensure the standards for the show? Maybe he meant "principal". Hmm.

Unregistered user The URL quoted is a load of moose and doesn't exist. The following is also a load of moose, but does actually exist: http://www.wakefieldshow.org.uk/

If you read the text, it says "A website will also be going active as soon as possible" - i.e. it might not be up yet. Please use a bit of common sense before being so critical - after all, the Wakefield show is being put on for love not money!

Unregistered user I think Moose was cryptically pointing out the spelling error. Wakefield has been docked it's 'l' in the URL.

a.

Oh joy, I just love it when people give "amusing" error reports rather than just saying outright what the problem is, it makes it so easy to do updates. Not.

Aren't we all a happy bunch of campers today!

I think I'll wait to see what theatre presentations there are before booking my flights. Anyone else from Northern Ireland? :)

I'll definitely be there, as Wakefield isn't that far away from Middlesbrough. Erm, and frankly, I take any chance to get out of Middlesbrough as I can get.

Unregistered user I'm surprised that Drobe didn't run a lengthy article about the Iconbar posting a news article! :)
