Default RetrotechUK (NVCF) September 26th at WEC.

The re-branded RetrotechUK show (previously NVCF) is being held at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the Fosse Way, just outside of Royal Leamington Spa on September 26th.

This is a reminder that it's just under two weeks away!

Over 160 stalls, all indoors, huge free car park, full range of refreshments available all day.

See https://www.retrotechuk.com/ for location/times/prices/info, etc.

Here's a short video of previous events as a taster, turn up your speakers and enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-HDN2wg7KY

If you haven't been before, it's got an enormous range of vintage technology on sale. Radios, TVs, Audio, Telephones, Vinyl, Record Players, Testgear, Retro computing, Parts, Valves, Cables, Collectables you name it!

We have spaced out the stalls a little more than usual to ensure lots of room for distancing and browsing. Entrance prices remain the same, with two-tier entry - Early entry at 9:00 (25) and Normal entry at 10:30 (10).

Note that there will be no shuttle bus service from Leamington Spa this year. Train travellers might wish to check for fellow visitors at the station and share taxis.

Everybody's very welcome, see you there!

-Jeremy

The Bring & Buy will operate as usual. Multiple item entry forms are attached below.

As usual Jeffrey, Brian, Chris and and I will be raising money for the Dulwich Vintage Wireless Museum on the Bring and Buy stall. Not sure where we'll be this time but most likely not far from the main entrance. If you've got stuff for the B&B and are queuing for general admission please try to make contact with us and we'll do our best to get your stuff logged and straight on to the stall.

There are 2 ways to sell stuff on the B&B.

1: Donation - with 100% going to the Vintage Wireless Museum. This is easy for us because there's no admin for labels, lists etc.

2: Sales with 10% commission to the Museum. If you have more than a couple of items it helps us a lot if you can make a numbered list with prices. Add in any lower price you can accept in the Offers column. We try to sell at the best price we can! Forms appear below. Remember to stick corresponding numbered price labels on each item. Leave space before the number so we can add a unique serial letter to each label. We can do labeling/listing on the day but it really slows things down for everyone at busy times.

The B&B closes at 4pm just like the rest of NVCF. If you've sold anything you can collect the proceeds at any time. Unsold items need to be collected before 4pm. We don't have facilities to dispose of unsold items.

Here's the suggested listing sheet if you have more than a few items.

See you all there - not long now...

Following a question on Facebook earlier, the WEC is fully wheelchair and mobility scooter accessible with disabled parking spaces close to the entrance, ramps at the entrance and the level change in the hall, accessible toilet, and catering staff happy to bring food down from the restaurant to the ground floor cafe area. If you need any assistance just ask any of the WEC staff or BVWS committee (go to the cash desk or BVWS stall if necessary and they will call someone).

Another important note, there is no cash machine in the WEC now, so please bring plenty of cash with you as it will be required for entry and at many of the stalls. Details of nearby cash machines are in the FAQ on the RetroTechUK website.

Just wondered, will there be a meet of forum members this year at Retrotech?
I know there has been in the past.

Nothing has been planned and I'm not able to attend this time. Probably best not to this time as some may not be comfortable gathering in a group, but let's organise something for the next one in Spring 2022.

I would like to come but unable to get the following Monday off work and I generally need a day off afterwards to recover from the long drive. Maybe next year.
