TESTIMONIALS Visitor comments included "Enjoyed the show very much indeed on Saturday - was there from 9.30 till 5, and even thought of returning the next day! That's how good it was! But unfortunately had other commitments. Great layouts, excellent trade, useful demonstrations - all in a fabulous spacious venue. What more do you want? I'm fortunate in being able to go to lots of exhibitions each year. This one has been my favourite so far. Even though I'm planning to attend two more I'm guessing Peterborough will be hard to beat! Thanks to all those involved"
