BREAKING NEWS:

Lots of your favourite dealers are now signed up and many are reporting that they have been reserving special items for this grand event. To any dealers who have not yet returned your forms please do this swiftly as the pitches are being snapped up fast. Wall tables have been proving especially popular and there are always less of those to start with.

Many thanks to everyone who has sent donations of cards for our card swap. This will be advertised nationally and locally so please take the time to look through your odds and see if you have any to add to our stocks. The cards we are swapping this year will be from the various formats of Topps Match Attax, Panini Adrenalyn XL, all styles of Pokémon cards, plus Sainsburys Lego, and Sainsburys Pixar Heroes, both the blue back “free” cards and the yellow back “commercial issue” cards. Or similar, all swell the table and boost the interest. You can always bring them with you to save posting them. If any members or dealers wish to donate larger quantities of these cards we will be delighted. Please email webmaster@card-world.co.uk if you would like more information on donating.

Don’t forget if you want reference books from us, or dealer catalogues you can get in touch direct and arrange to collect at the fair. This is an excellent way to save post on those – which you can spend in the hall on more cards!

GETTING THERE:

The Leisure centre is just off the main ring road around Salisbury, and about twenty minutes walk from the city centre and railway station which is linked by direct train from London Waterloo, Bristol and the West Country, and the South Coast. There will be free parking for approximately 300 cars.

INSIDE THE VENUE :

All the dealers will be housed in a single large well lit hall, it’s situated right by the reception and cafe, and all on one level. It covers over 1,000 square metres. The Society AGM will take place in a room close by.

Dealer access details will be provided on booking but the leisure centre has good unloading facilities with easy access for all those laden trolleys. There will be free parking for approximately 300 cars.
