We're ready for Wakefield 2004, says WROCCBy Chris Williams. Published: 18th Dec 2003, 09:25:08 | Permalink | Printable
Two day event confirmedThe WROCC has confirmed to drobe.co.uk this morning that there will be a Wakefield 2004 event, with plans being "well underway for the event". The announcement is considerably more upbeat than Chris Hughes' initial fears after last year's event.
Next year's RISC OS show will, you'll be pleased to know, be a two day event held on the 15th and 16th of May 2004. The venue will be, as always, the Thornes Park Athletics Stadium. Advance tickets will be available from March at 6 quid a head, otherwise it's 7 quid a head on the day for Saturday and 6 quid a head on the day for Sunday. Under 5's are free.
A train station minibus, sponsored by the lads at APDL and Virtual Acorn, will be running, as will the show theatre and charity stall. The WROCC are also planning another prize draw.
According to the WROCC's show co-ordinator, Chris Hughes, the event will be sponsored by APDL, FinnyBank, Spelling Computer Services, Stuart Tyrrell Developments and Virtual Acorn, with support from the RISC OS press.
The Wakefield show has always been a pillar of the RISC OS annual calendar with many developers pivoting releases around the show weekend. We're pleased to see that the WROCC have been able to engineer a 2004 event.
