No this is my first time. Glad there's lots of modern I doubt I will be able to afford much. It's more of an idea and people gathering exercise IYSWIM?

Driving up from Bristol so it's a big day for us! Woot Woot!

As I only live a 15 minute local train ride away I often go.

It does tend to be more 1/12 scale, but I have picked up some lovely vintage furniture in the past.

Its a great fair for ideas as there are many room sets to drool over!

Hi Jus,

did you go to the Miniatura?

Unfortunately I had a wisdom tooth out, and was still feeling too bad to go.

Yeah, we all went.

What a day, the weather was awful on the way there and back should have taken a boat! I was impressed with the size and the amount of people but unfortunately the kids were quickly bored and getting to see everything was all a bit of a chore. Next time I think we'll dump the kids somewhere and mooch around on our own.

Good for information though so worth going I think.

Hope you're feeling better now!

Jus
