To be honest I really do not understand why people run this show down so much! Over the last couple of years, it has improved so very much, over what it was. Person I have been going to it for at least 10 years, travelling all the way up from Cornwall, and really think that it is now one of the very best. Sadly, because of distance, age, and expense, this will be my last visit, and I have been given the honour of organising the Model Lifeboat display, on behalf of the LBES.
Come and see for yourselves, a lot of people do, and go away very happy, with the displays, the traders, and everything else that goes into this great show.

That would depend on your mobility and what you intend buying to carry back to the car.

To put in the car?

Finally the new Blackpool Model Show web site is up & running (www.blackpoolmodelshow.co.uk) you can now also buy tickets on line. (you can still just pay on the door, but expect a queue first thing Saturday morning)

Note about parking:
Although there is now a camera controlled parking charge system at the Norbreck Castle Hotel, if you are coming to the show there is no chargeI have come to an "arrangement" with the hotel to secure free parking for all those involved in the show, this includes anyone setting up on the Friday as well as those visiting over the weekend. All you will need to do is give us your car registration number when you arrive, during the show time there will be a list of numbers at the entrance to the event, just add yours. Outside the show opening times you will need to come to the organisers' desk - see me or Dave (Stavros) Do not ask at the hotel reception, they will not be able to do this, also do not pay as we will not be able to get your payment refunded.
There are still a number of clubs, individual exhibitors & traders who said that they wanted to come to the show, but have yet to send in their paperwork. Anyone who is not showing on the web site has not sent in their paperwork. I am now working on the floor plan for the show so it is the last chance for anyone wanting to have a stand (trade or exhibit) to get the paperwork to me.

Looooong time since Ive been to the Norbreck. Is there a separate entrance to the exhibition halls or do you have to go in via the main reception? TIA.

Both of those at the front of the hotel.  Another entrance from the rear car park, leads directly to the same corridor.

Stav / Ian - I have sent back my forms for Linkspan by email a week or two ago (work is keeping me on the road too much) but not had any response.


Checked the website and it is showing that the domain name is for sale.


I am sure that Ian is wanting some sheckles pretty damn soon and I need to know how much.  I spoke with Ian a few weeks ago to confirm that we will be there and that we will be very happy with the same stand space.


Can you advise my good chap?


Cheers
Carl

Apologies to one & all for the issues with the Blackpool Model Show web site. All would now appear to be functioning as it should, I have no doubt that someone will let me know if it doesn't!The new site is done on wordpress which is an application I have no prior experience with, so there was a bit of a learning curve, but it was necessary to bring the site up to date & also to get it more "mobile friendly" as we know that there are more & more people using phones & tablets to access the site & the old site really wasn't much cop with small screens.Anyway, should all be fine now (fingers crossed)
