I see there are some guests listed on the site but no major names yet.

Wolfie will be pleased that they have changed the cost of parking, not £8 but a steal at £10 (or is that robbery?).

The NEC are just a national disgrace, I don't know why anyone has anything to do with them. Twak

And yet you keep going back. The only way to show your disgust is to boycott the show.

Unfortunatly the show is nothing to do with the NEC, they only hire the hall, everything else that goes on there is out of their control.

I understand that, but if enough drivers boycotted the show, the organisers of Memorabilia would have some leverage in sorting the charges. The people that organise the toy fair seem to have it down pat.

The Toy Fair has been running at the NEC for a very long time and is subject to the original contract agreement between the organiser and the NEC which stipulates that anyone attending the show will get free parking.
The NEC have tried on numerous occasions to get this contract cancelled but the organisers have said that if it is they will pull the show so a sort of stand off is in operation, if they could find a way to cancel the contract and keep the show they would do it today.

I may not be at liberty to say who but in addition to Batman, I'm told there will be a special appearance by more friends of NSU from the States at Memorabilia this year. Those who have been to the Philly Non-Sports Card Show will know them (and in fact, already know who I refer to).

The Americans are coming.....And there's nothing you can do about it. Wavey
