    Shepton was never a good show for us, too early in season, wet and cold, havent done it for a number of years

    We have been to it a few times but it has been cancelled a few times of recent years due to the weather and the cost of attending for a day to walk around just a few stalls in a couple of hours really was not worth the money. From a commercial decision if I were planning to exhibit there I would seriously look at return over cost also bearing in mind the preparation needed and the time lost after the show.

    Bearing in mind the weather we have been having - the fact that quite a few roads are currently closed in that general area. The economic climate etc etc I think it is a sound commercial decision they have made and look forward to a spectacular April show from them :thumb:

    It's also to be hoped that Warners' new spoiler at Harrogate doesn't ruin the Newark show the same weekend and reduce overall choice for the public.
