Just to follow up David's post, I've agreed to stage a subset of the 2009
Acorn World show <http://www.acornworld.co.uk> at the VCF.
I'm currently in the process of contacting those who exhibited at Huddersfield
with a view to putting on a similar display at Bletchley Park (though we have
less space than we had at Huddersfield). However, if anybody else reading has
some obscure Beeb/Acorn kit that they feel would make for an interesting
exhibit, please email me off-list to discuss. I'm also seeking volunteers to
participate in the "Beeb Repair Centre" ... :)
Acorn World 2010 "proper" - if it does go ahead - will be in Blackpool, either
on 13-14 Nov or 20-21 Nov.
