A date for your diary. The Yorkshire Pen Show will be on Sunday November 26th 2017 at the Copthorne Hotel, Brammal Lane, Sheffield S2 4SU

 

A first class venue and well supported, not to be missed if at all possible.

 

A pdf of the table plan is attached, the May date in the bottom right hand corner should be ignored.

How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed.
Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly.

Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

I hope that you will enjoy it. The event is much smaller than the London show of course but enjoyable all the same.

Although not exactly local to me, I've been to this one twice and enjoyed myself on both occasions.

Will put it in my diary, and hopefully will be able to make it.

Thanks for flagging it up.

Last UK pen show of the year is on Sunday at the Copthorne Hotel in Sheffield, an enjoyable and friendly show and if you can make it then you will enjoy it. From memory, the show has a good break out area for a coffee and a chat, a chance to talk about what you have seen and bought.

Bummer  :(

Was in Yorkshire 4 weeks ago, and it's a bit far to go back. Gutted.

It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
 
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.

 

My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.

It was my first pen show and it was small but friendly, some of the dealer stock looked a bit tired, others were fantastic.

 

I tried an Aurora with a flexible nib and that was nothing less than astonishing. I have used my fathers vintage Watermans pens and thought they were ok but didnt suit me, this Aurora was just superb.

 

I picked up the leaflet for 2018 shows

 

February 4 Bristol

March 4 Cambridge

April 15 Chester

June 24 Lichfield

October 7 WES

November 25 Sheffield

 

Scotland is an obvious ommission, perhaps it would be possible to organise something on the west coast, somewhere like Troon, especially as Lytham has been swapped for Chester - we like a seaside weekend break with a pen show

That would be amazing.

I've never been to a pen show, and anywhere on the west coast can be reached in an hour.

A family day out, whether they want to or not.  :lol:
