Today, we were at Durham (N.E. England) for their annual show.
We had our customary good time, and got lots of new toys!

I turned up at 3 but all the traders were packing up so I went home. Disappointed.

Unfortunately, all shows seem to finish before their scheduled finish time.
The show was quite busy from 10 when it opened and was still well attended at midday when I left.
I don't blame the traders for finishing early if there are only a few punters left.

Fun show, as ever. Nice to see lots of familiar faces.

Dropped my hard-earned on Irregular Ottomans, Desert Rats from Dave Thomas, and Coat d'arms paint from Colonel Bill's.

Parking was a 'mare this year – no spaces left by 09:45. Plenty of on-street parking locally, though.

Wish they'd open upstairs again – this show could be bigger!

I made the same assumption as Herky re. the 40mm WotR game – a prominently displayed "Lion Rampant" rulebook suggests a Lion Rampant game is being played!

I think weather and TV sport was the cause of many early retirements.
Herkeybird, you cut off my head in the third last photo at the bring and buy.

Sorry Jarovian! I had no intent to dacapitate you!

A thousand apologies!

At least I got your manly nose and chin in….

Wasn't at my best, hobbling about with a bandaged leg and walking stick. I think you caught me mid lunch. Glad you enjoyed the show, and hope to see you next year.

Thanks to all the guys for hosting it!
