Show news motifNext year's Wakefield RISC OS show, held in the north of England, is set to take place in April, drobe.co.uk understands. Event organisers at the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club have reportedly pencilled in a date of Saturday April 26.

The show usually takes place in the month of May but a suitable venue has already been booked for April. In previous years, an athletics stadium in the Yorkshire city of Wakefield has hosted the show but 2007 saw a shift to a countryside conference hall. Next year's show will have to take place elsewhere as the building has been turned into an 'adult playhouse'. Plans for the 2008 event are said to be "in the fairly early stages."

This year's Wakefield show saw the unveiling of the RISC OS Open source code and the release of NetSurf 1.0.

Oh, I'll be there. I'm hoping I can get my hands on an A9Home at last, as I've been passing up the opertunity for too long now. I'd also be looking forward to all the ususal developments from all.

Huh, I should be back in the UK in May. Still, it shouldn't be too hard to get back again for a weekend.

Great news, it clashed with another event I'd have really liked to have attended this year, but April is empty so far.
