WAKEFIELD SHOW 2022
Next Saturday 21st May, the long awaited 25th physical Wakefield Show will
take place, but at the BRADFORD Cedar Court Hotel rather than at
The show will be open between 10:30 am and 4:00 pm. There are some 20
exhibitors this year, with a wide range of companies and organisations
among them, including RISCOS Open Ltd, RISCOSbits, CJE Micro's, R-Comp and
RISCOS Developments. The entrance fee is a lower this year at just 2
pounds as a thank you to our visitors.
You can expect to see two exciting new computers at the show this year.
The ever popular Charity Stall will once again be raising much needed
funds for Wakefield Hospice. Over the years we have raised more than
26,000 pounds for charitable causes, so a big thank you for your support.
The Show Theatre makes a welcome return and there will be 5 presentations
throughout the day - details are on the show website.
This year we will have a really super prize draw with no less than SEVEN
prizes to be won, the top one being the new PiRO Noir 2128 Computer from
RISCOSbits. Other prizes include a Pi400 and a Voucher worth up to 50
pounds that can be used with any participating exhibitor who has something
to sell. It can be used at the show itself but will be valid until the
20th June, so you could use it to get a discount on a new computer or
other hardware add-on for example.
Tickets for the Prize Draw cost 1 pound each with a maximum of 2 tickets
per person. The draw will take place at 2 pm straight after the previous
theatre talk. Tickets can be bought at the WROCC club stand number 1.
The show is taking place in ground floor rooms close to the entrance foyer
and bar area, providing easy access for all. The exhibition and theatre
suites are air conditioned with fresh air circulating, and hand sanitizer
will be available at the show entrance. The rooms are considerably more
spacious and with higher ceilings then at the original Wakefield venue,
which will aid social distancing and help to provide a safe environment
for our exhibitors and visitors alike.
Whilst there are no longer any legal COVID restrictions in place, everyone
is advised to take a test before attending if they have any relevant
symptoms. The wearing of face masks is optional, but please be extra
careful to respect social distancing from anyone wearing one.
