Wakefield RISCOS Show 2022 postponed and back on!

Post by flaxcottage »

Heard that the WROCC Show for 2022 has been postponed.

It was to have been on 21 May but the venue has cancelled until September. Shame as I was looking forward to having a stall. :(

Crumbs! I only just knew it had been postponed from April, which I could have done, to May, which, I can't! September might be all right depending on the date.

WROCC are hoping to keep it on the same date (21st May) but in another location. If you know of anywhere suitable I'm sure they'd be happy to receive recommendations!

I believe there are/is spare table(s)

Cool, I will try and get over for it.

Are there any other 8-bit meetups planned for the North this year?

I've been rumbled. I'm on birthday waiting-on-hand-and-foot duty on 21st, postponed from mother's day when I conveniently contracted the coronavirus moments before the oven was due to go on. I suggested we could have a day out somewhere different, and completely at random thought of Bratford...and we could thereafter perhaps continue to Wakefield for a nice fish & chip lunch at the Kingfisher.

Mention of the jam roly poly on the pensioners' special didn't go down all that well. Mentioning that whilst in Bratford I could possibly pop into the Cedar Court for a couple of hours went down like a lead-free solder balloon. So I don't think I'm going to turning up...

Just a heads up for anyone travelling to the Wakefield show in Bradford, there are roadworks (including a lane closure) scheduled on Staygate Interchange at the end of the M606, next to the venue:

It says “delays likely” so allow extra time for your journey.

So, did anyone make it. I got a far as the height restriction not letting me in the car park. Started to park on the road opposite and got called away! Did I miss much?

Nope, same stuff, different venue.

Thanks Ian

Still wish I'd come in. I ended up doing a 200 mile show round trip to pick up a table that didn't quite fit so had to leave half of it behind!

What was the attendance like?

Being diplomatic: Could have been better!

I still enjoyed the day - a larger hall which made the attendance seem a lot smaller than it would have been in Wakefield!

I never go with expectations - and alway forget to take those vital things :roll: Still plan to go next year . . .

I'm sorry I didn't come in - at least to bump the numbers up!

Yeah, unfortunately it clashed with a couple of gigs for me this year - hopefully see you all IRL soon though.

Ah, I’d love to go to one of these one day. Maybe next year? 2023 is a good number =P~
How about hosting it in Mid Wales next time? :wink:
