London Show / Saturday 27th October 2018

Post by helpful » Thu Sep 06, 2018 3:17 am

This year's RISC OS London Show, with added ABUG meetup, is taking place on Saturday 27th October 2018, at its usual venue of the St Giles Hotel, Feltham, TW14 9AD. Entrance is £5 with under 16s free, open 11am-5pm.

http://www.riscoslondonshow.co.uk/

Cost for an ABUG stand is just your entrance fee, i.e. £5. If you would like a stand reply here, or DM, or email show2018@riscoslondonshow.co.uk

I haven't updated the website with this year's exhibitors details yet, will do it next week, as I'll be badgering people at Acorn World this weekend to round up ABUG attendees :D

Everyone else just come along on the day and join in the fun!

That's not far from Oxford so I will come along definitely as a visitor. I can bring some 8-bit kit to demo if you'd like to bolster the 8-bit corner a little - or I'll just come as a punter?

Excellent. I've put you on the show exhibitors list under VideoNuLA, let me know if there's anything you want changed in the description.

Happy to give you stand space (it's the same price as being a punter!), particularly if you have something to demo that no one else is showing. We like to see new old stuff :-)

A bit of a long shot, but is anyone able to bring along a Domesday system, as I don't think we've ever had one at the London Show? Or maybe one of the "emulated" versions that use a PC pretending to be the laser disc player? Impressive bit of digital preservation!

Thanks,
Bryan.

I could at a push although I think one of my laserdiscs is suffering from bit rot :(

Right, just over two weeks to go (eek!), anyone else want to a stand? We will be finalising the stand layout at the next ROUGOL meeting (Acorns in Aerospace, Monday 15th October - come along!) so you have a few days left to grab one.

I think we currently have:
tricky - loadsa games :-)
RobC - VideoNuLA and Domesday
cmorley - have you decided what you're bringing? Let me know and I will add it to the show website
jbnbeeb - Jason, I think you said at CCH that you were coming? I appear to have you down as ABUG and Retro Software!

I've fired up my Domesday system tonight and it seems to be working albeit slightly temperamentally. If it's still okay in a couple of weeks, I'll bring it along...

If it's okay, my daughter is keen to come along to demonstrate the AB Music Master recorder tutor I picked up recently. It plugs into the user port and records the notes played on the recorder (either telling you whether you've played them correctly or transcribing them to the screen).
