London Show / Saturday 28th October 2017

Postby helpful » Wed Sep 13, 2017 4:35 pm

This year's RISC OS London Show, with added ABug meetup, is taking place on Saturday 28th October 2017, at its usual venue of the St Giles Hotel, Feltham, TW14 9AD. Entrance is £5 with under 16s free, open 11am-5pm.

The initial list of exhibitors is already up on the website, and it's already quite long :-) However the Beeb contingent is looking a bit small this year so if you want to take a stand, just £5, do get in touch ASAP.

The show looks like it will have quite a games theme this year:
- Tricky will be there with his Beeb masterpieces
- AMCOG now have 8 original games, all written in BBC BASIC
- Soft Rock Software will have a compilation CD or memory stick with all their games
- Jon Abbott of the Archimedes Software Preservation Project is running a games arcade using original machines and emulation on the Raspberry Pi. This will include his new improved Zarch on the big screen!

The charity stand will again be raising money for Combat Stress. Bring along your unwanted Acorn hardware and software, or collect some "new" stuff to add to your collection!

Plus of course all the latest developments in RISC OS :D

Hope to see lots of you there.

Bryan,

Only three weeks until this year's London Show!

For the StarDot exhibitors, we've got:
- Tricky with his latest amazing game conversions
- jbnbeeb with his still in progress new game :-D
- lazarusr with BeebOPL
- RobC demonstrating VideoNuLA, hopefully with some for sale too!

Anyone else want to have a table? You've got about a week left to grab one.

Everyone else, just come along for a play!

Bryan.

I need to have one day off from Power Up at some point so might as well book it for ROLS.

Put me down for an ABug table in the StarDot area/room please Bryan! :)

Do you mean you want a table to show stuff? If so, drop me an email to discuss what you need - show2017@riscoslondonshow.co.uk

Or if you are just coming along to see what everyone else has been up to and have a chat, then simply turn up on the day and grab a ticket on the way in :-)

Same for everyone else too of course!

I think I volunteered to collect then and take them to Leicester, but I guess anyone else going there can take them as I will have a car full that weekend.

Forgot to ask, what are you planning to have on display? I'll add it to the show website.

Do we have any Atoms or Electrons yet? Anyone bringing a Pi copro?
