Ok confession time. I took too few pictures and I should have noted down what stores/sellers were there as it is under a week later and I am already struggling to remember 😀Continue reading
First off this coming Sunday it is the Spring London Pen at the Hammersmith Novotel. Going to be interesting to see how many vendors and visitors will be there considering the near removal of COVID related restrictions over here and more people getting used to the ‘new reality’.
On a different note, I’ve not been able to produce weekly posts for a short while. This is partly due to me being busy with one of my other hobbies where I have administrative work.
A few months later than planned and in its new location, we finally had our first pen show for around a year and a half. Now migrated from the Holiday Inn near Russell Square to the Hammersmith Novotel, there must have been uncertainty over how the show would go.

Just a late reminder to all that the spring London Pen Show will be held tomorrow, Sunday the 25th of July 2021.
For those not aware it is at a new location:
Novotel London West
London, W6 8DR
For the regular tickets (£5 per person) the show hours are 10:00-16:00, early bird is still available (£10 per person) which will give you access from 09:00. Note kids under 13 have free entry.
There is limited parking at the hotel though I would recommend pre-booking, I’ve personally used JustPark, else it is within comfortable walking distance of the Hammersmith underground station.

Sure numbers were down both for traders and for visitors, but it was far from being the disaster some people feared.
It’s the Spring London Pen Show this Sunday and at the same time it’s hard to avoid the fact there is now a globally spreading infection, Covid-19 also known as Coronavirus. The WHO is yet to declare it a pandemic and it is still considered mild in the UK, but certainly people are worried. It will be interesting to see if numbers at the event are heavily affected.
Pen shows are a great way to catch up with people you may only know from Internet forums, catch up with old friends, traders you do business with, having an enjoyable time, oh and also maybe buy a pen or two or ten. This year there was also a big announcement. Continue reading
