Midlands show venue booked

ARM Club begin rustling up exhibitors

RISC OS show newsThe ARM Club are set to host a Midlands show for RISC OS users later this year. The team have hand picked and booked the Featherstone and Hilton Conference and Community Centre, north of Wolverhampton, for Saturday November 25. And the club will be running the event with the help of the newly formed Midlands user group.

Organiser Ralph Stillet said the venue is about 1.5 miles from junction 11 of the M6.

He added: "We have the facility to have theatre presentations and there will also be a small bar on site selling soft drinks and alcohol. It's a bit further north than the Motorcycle Museum but just as easy to get to."

The ARM Club are hoping to produce publicity posters for the event and run the theatre talks between 10am and 3pm on the day. The Midlands show was dropped from the 2005 calendar after the organisers struggled to find enough exhibitors to fill the National Motorcycle Museum - the show's usual host. In 2003, the event was cancelled after a blaze tore through the museum, and in 2004, the club were one of the first groups to book the reconstructed building.

Is the venue accessible by public transport, or would it be a taxi from Wolverhampton (which sounds expensive!)

Perhaps a few of us could arrange some joint transport. I'm sure the new show will come up at the MUG meeting

It's 3.1 miles from the nearest railway station - Landywood (according to multimap), compared to 0.9 for the Motorcycle Museum, so with the extra rail travel time, chances are that I won't bother going :(

This is just up the road for me :-) If you're coming by public transport, the easiest way would be train to Wolverhampton, then bus to Featherstone - the bus station is right next to the railway station, so not too hard.
