The organisers of the above fairs have proved their worth as far as I am concerned. They offer good value to both visitor and exhibitors, and all have a real interest in their fields of sport (and in having a good specialist bookseller involved) - it's not all about money!
The Shooting Show at Stoneleigh and the Scottish Game Fair are two of the events that I formerly supported but which are so expensive to attend that they are no longer viable for me.
The Welsh Game Fair will not be going ahead this year. The Falconry Fair will no longer be held at Newport, but in future will alternate between the BCBP Yorkshire and the ICBP Newent.
If you would like particular books bringing to a show please let us know at least one week before the show date. We often start out early!
Shows offer a good opportunity for me to meet you to talk about book valuations, publishing ideas, shooting days, fishing trips, invitations to parties, stuff like that. If you are thinking about selling any surplus books, bring them along.
