Looking for conventions/shows in the UK for the end of January/Early February. I know Vapnartak is usually held around then, but their website simply says it's being planned.

Also, no one seems to have updated the show calendar for 2023 (at least that I can find). Come on guys we only have two more months in 2022 and some of us like to plan ahead :).

Vapnartak has published dates (Sunday 5 Feb 2023) and a list of traders now.

Beachhead confirmed at Bournemouth International Centre (11-12 Feb 2023) and Cavalier at Tonbridge Kent on Sun Feb 26th. Traders lists are up for both.

I see that from the trader list, what was (until Covid) the best show for 15mm manufacturers/retailers now has almost none.

I can understand Peter Pig's decision not to attend (their costs of simply attending meant that even breaking even would mean they'd need a lot of sales). But no Museum Miniatures (possibly the closest manufacturer to the show)? No Donnington?

I've heard rumours about the organisers resting on their laurels (I've toned down what I have heard), but from a 15mm standpoint there is little point in attending now. Shame, as Vapnartak used to be my favourite show.
