Hi people its that time of year again, we are asking for exhibitors to one of the THE best venues and events in the toy steam calendar.

Please let Colin know if you would like to attend and keep all Kempton related stuff in this thread.

I'm hoping to be there for the two days again.

Thanks

Had a great weekend at Kempton, my first show of the year. Fine weather, great exhibits and plenty of visitors.

I took lots of pictures, so need a bit of time to edit and put them up.

We had a great weekend at Kempton, its been 10 years now since I first came to this amazing place.

The weather was perfect and despite the Saturday 'wedding' and cup final, had a gran turn out on both days - Sunday particularly busy.

The usual display of quality steam from knowledgeable collectors and enthusiasts made for a great atmosphere, especially with the huge triple expansion in steam using the weekend. It ran for four 30 minute periods during each day. I stayed for the two days and this makes for a more relaxing break away. Usual suspect were attending as well as a few new faces. All in all a great event and one that I really do urge you to attend if you have never visited this before, hopefully we can do it all over again next year. Took loads of pictures as well as a few videos, so take the time to look through and post back.

Enjoy.
