Unfortunately we have had to cancel the show in November this year.
The venue, CEME, Rainham, Essex, have increased their charges for the premises by three fold plus.
They also wanted to move us from the hall area to the other side of the building which is basically a large open plan communal area with rooms off them.
There would be issues with this area as the sides are unshaded glass, over two floors tall and south facing. So anybody operating facing the windows, if sunny, would make it almost impossible. The rooms are poorly lit. This was two-thirds less floor space than the area we previously had.
We have tried to get a new venue for this year, but this has not come to fruition.
The show will definitely take place next year once we have got a new venue.
