Ooh, tough one. That's the same time as the beer festival. A definite maybe. Was discussing beer fest with Mrs Ant just a day ago, now this pops up. Might still wangle it - beer fest is a bit out of the way this year so she may sack that off.

I'm heading up to this. It'll be my first one of these I've been to for ages.

I'm looking forward to it, but what used to be full of retro, arcades & interesting talks, appears to be largely replaced by modern gaming, competitive e-sport tourneys, retailers flogging stuff and dressing up. Which is a shame.

Oh and it's a lot more expensive than it used to be.

Not going to make it (or the beer festival), other things have arisen that cannot be changed. Completely forgot this was on this weekend.

There's only this one that I can think of. All the rest are in England.

Oh, forgot there's a small monthly meeting in Edinburgh that I've not been to yet (I think its still going), but that isn't really a show, just a gathering of some locals.
