The 2016 Convention is nearly here!5th Mar 2016 by Sam Whiting
It’s that time of year already and we are pleased to confirm the 2016 CSGB Convention will take place in Bracknell on the Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May. As I get updates on dealers that will be attending I shall add them here but you can be sure that there will be quite literally millions of cigarette and trade cards on offer as usual.
Chris Corner has also assembled a first rate auction (which will be loaded onto the website very soon!) and all lots will be available to view over the weekend. You can leave bids either by post/email as usual or if you’re in Bracknell you can leave them in person with Chris. This year we won’t be having an live auction and instead are giving collectors the chance to spend more time in the main hall with the dealers! Once more I think it’s worth mentioning that bidding on the auction is now open to non-members.
The venue details are as follows:
Bracknell Leisure Centre
Saturday: Members: 10am – 6pm/Non-Members 12pm – 6pm
Sunday: All 10am – 4pm
Admission: £3 Saturday £2 Sunday (family members free)
