RISC World

Wakefield 2007

All the latest show news...

There was a bit of concern expressed recently over the Wakefield show. Some RISC OS users were wondering if it was going to happen this year. Luckily the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club have put everyone's mind at rest and have recently announced the full details for the show.

The venue

This year the show has moved from it's traditional home at Thorne's Park and instead will be at The Mill House and Frobisher Suite, Stanley Ferry Marina, Ferry lane, Stanley, Wakefield, WF3 4LT. The date has been set as Saturday the 19th of May.

The Mill house is easy to reach by road, as you can see from this map.

Tickets and times

As well as a new venue there have been some other changes for this years show.

Firstly tickets, costing £4.00 for adults with children under six getting in free, will no longer be available by post but can only be purchased on the door. The show will now open at 10:30 which is half an hour later than usual. As an exhibitor I am rather pleased as that extra half an hour can makes things a good deal less rushed in the morning.


The show has the same sponsors as last year. These are Advantage6, APDL, Crawfords the Printers, Martin Wuerthner and VirtualAcorn.


As every day goes by more and more exhibitors are booking. As we went to press the current list of exhibitors is:

As usual you can expect to see the latest developments and product releases from all the companies that will be attending.
