The International Astronomy Show

is to be held in Warwickshire on the 17th & 18Th May 2013:

 

"UK Astronomers Ltd in association with Sky at Night Magazine are pleased to announce a brand new International Astronomy Show to be held in May 2013 in the heart of England at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre just outside Leamington Spa and Coventry.  See the Exhibition Centre page for more details.  The show, which aims to be the biggest organised outside London, will have up to 40 astronomy dealers and specialists under one roof , with 2000 sq meters of exhibition space. There will also be a series of talks given by some of the country's best known speakers, with some live demonstrations to add to the fun.

 

 

The aim is to provide a better value for money show, without the stress factor of having to travel into the centre of London.  The venue's 2000 free car parking spaces, a 200 seater restaurant, and ground floor exhibition, all contribute to wards a cheaper, more enjoyable show.  There is easy access by road from the M1, M40 and M6.  Rail - with the nearest train station at Leamington Spa, is only 5 miles away.  We have organised a 26 seater shuttle bus which will carry visitors to and from the exhibition approximately every 30 minutes or so.  A return ticket costs just £7. For those travelling from further afield, Birmingham City airport is just 20 miles away."

And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too; I'll see you on The Dark Side of the Moon

We should devise some fiendishly clever recognition method so we can meet fellow InsideAstromers at this event.
