The 6th ANNUAL GREAT WEST PROGRAMME & MEMORABILIA FAIR will be held in the Ballroom at the BAWA Club, 589 Southmead Road, Filton, Bristol, BS34 7RG on SUNDAY FEBRUARY 17 (10.30-1.30).
We have had to seek a new venue because Bristol Rovers doubled the hire charge for the Bristol Room at the Memorial Stadium, which made staying at that venue became totally uneconomic.
Rovers may have done us a favour because the Ballroom at the BAWA Club is a splendid, spacious venue, so there will be plenty of room for us to accommodate extra dealers and any collectors with surplus stock to sell. Interested? Contact me on: [email protected].
Hopefully, the neutral venue may tempt more Bristol City collectors to attend.

To the 181 that have had a look at this posting.

PLEASE TURN UP

Gordon works very hard to get these fairs on.

So please support the fair and advise others to come along.

Bristol City are home in the FA Cup live on BT SPORT

to Shrews or Wolves with a kick off time of 1pm.

If Wolves come to Ashton Gate,this could actually increase the footfall.

Tonight's 4th round win for Wolves over Shrewsbury means that the fifth round tie at Ashton Gate on Sunday February 17 (ko 1pm) will be:
BRISTOL CITY v WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS
Collectors from both clubs can quite easily visit us at the BAWA Club (Fair opens 10.30am) and get to the Cup-tie in good time, as the two venues are only about 20 minutes apart.

Many thanks (& indeed congratulations) to Gordon on arranging a superb event yesterday. An outstanding venue, hopefully one which will become a regular fixture on the programme fair circuit.

And of course, grateful thanks to all collectors and customers who made the effort to come along too.

My sincere thanks to all the traders and collectors who supported last Sunday's Fair at the BAWA Club ballroom in Bristol.
At the request of the majority of traders, I have gone ahead and booked the venue for another Fair on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 17 (10.30am-1.30pm).
It is a splendid venue, easy to find, spacious and well-lit.
If any traders or collectors with surplus programmes to sell wish to book a stand, please contact me via email: [email protected].

As a stall holder on Sunday I would like to congratulate Gordon on finding a superb venue for the fair.
Although the footfall was a little disapointing those who did turn up spent well & I will be definitely be a stall holder at the November fair

Cheers
Martin
