21st October. Which show?

Post #1 by niner » Sun Jul 01, 2012 8:28 pm

Looks like there are 2 shows on the same day

The Heavy Equipment Show in Blackburn

And the Donnington show http://www.bpfairs.com/fairs.php?fair=24

For the construction collector, does anyone know the best one to go to?

I think you will find that the Blackburn show would be the one to go to, as the Donnington show covers everything, Blackburn show is all about plant and interesting things

Would there be any traders or people selling at the Blackburn show?

In my mind definately Blackburn, been there for all the shows since it started, excellent venue warm and clean and very close to the M65 motorway for travelling. An excellent chance to see all sorts of displays/ dioramas and plenty to choose from if purchasing.

Blackburn is a good show, quite a lot bigger this year too! Outdoor truck show, lots of great modellers displaying their wares and a good atmosphere too.
