Early attendees will get the best dibs of the secondhand stalls and trade stalls (folks like BHE usually attend this one).
This will be their reward for having had a dull Valentine's night the day before :)

I will be there after lunch...perhaps... :)

I'm hoping that the weather hasn't had an affect on this show?? Its only 15mins down the road so if I can escape for an hour I'll shoot over.

Visited the show yesterday, seemed a bit quiet . Lisworth bay is superb , a N gauge southern themed layout. Netherwood sidings also deserves a mention , BR blue class 76/77 scratch built in O.

I managed to get an hour in there yesterday and agree with @Tonye, did seem exceptionally quiet, weather probably didnt help the case but with Tesco car park full and all up past Colton Packaging I guessed it was going to be busy.

Walked straight in with no queue.
Every trade stand I was the only person buying anything at the time I was there so that was a bit concerning.
The busy part as always, the foyer between the 2 halls and the cafe part. The queue for the bacon rolls was big.
Second hand stall was rammed with usual box rummagers but not many buying and nothing for me in N.
Lisworth Bay is a very tidy looking layout.

I did manage to get all but one item I was after though

Hopefully today is a good day for them  celebrating their Silver Jubilee

I have some pictures, but not worth publishing on here. I hope they got a better turn out today.
