BeebMaster - Shows


Over ten years of travelling around to classic computer conventions since my first in March 2009. Whenever I've been somewhere, I'll report back here, so you can find out what I've been doing.

Byte-Back 2009
In March 2009, I attended "Byte-Back" in Stoke-on-Trent, my first ever classic computer convention.

Wakefield Show 2009
Six weeks later, I was in Wakefield for the annual RISC-OS show.

I thought I might not be able to make it to any more computer events in 2009, but then Console Combat came along, close to home in central Manchester.

In September I was in Huddersfield for Acorn World. What a busy 2009!

My first convention appearance of 2010 saw a return visit to the Wakefield show.

Bletchley Show 2010
