UK Pipe Show

Good news! There will be a UK Pipe Show this year; Sunday 22nd May at Canal House Bar, 48-52 Canal Street, Nottingham.

Following on from last year's legal complications, there will not be a pipe smoking contest, just the pipe exhibition. A number of pipe makers and retailers will be there showcasing their work and selling pipes and accessories. There's no entry fee and the Canal House offer a huge selection of Ales, Spirits and delicious food. The venue (unlike the Showground) is in Nottingham city centre and will be much easier to get to via public transport.

Previous years have been good fun and it's always nice to see and meet a wider group of pipe smokers.

If anyone is interested in being there for the Saturday evening, Chris Askwith is looking to arrange an informal "pre-show gathering". Chris can be contacted via his Facebook page.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, things have been pretty busy at home and my new shift pattern at work has cut into my online time as well. Things have now settled down a bit so I should be able to post a bit more frequently.

On the plus side, I've got a new DSLR camera so I will be taking lots more photos to upload.
