  • National Theatre

    We are excited to announce the National Theatre one of the United Kingdom's  most prominent publicly funded performing arts venues will be taking a stand at this years show.



    The National Theatre is dedicated to making the very best theatre and sharing it with as many people as possible.
    Staging up to 30 productions at it South Bank home each year, ranging from re-imagined classics – such as Greek tragedy and Shakespeare – to modern masterpieces and new work by contemporary writers and theatre-makers. The work they make strives to be as open, as diverse, as collaborative and as national as possible. Much of that new work is researched and developed at the NT Studio: they are committed to nurturing innovative work from new writers, directors, creative artists and performers.
    The National's work is also seen on tour throughout the UK and internationally, and in collaborations and co-productions with regional theatres. Popular shows transfer to the West End and occasionally to Broadway; and through the National Theatre Live programme, they broadcast live performances to 2,000 cinemas in 50 countries around the world. Its extensive Learning programme offers talks, events and workshops for people of all ages in the new Clore Learning Centre, and reaches nationwide through programmes such as Connections, the annual festival of new plays for schools and youth theatres. National Theatre: On Demand in Schools has now made three acclaimed, curriculum-linked productions free to stream on demand in every secondary school in the country. Online, the NT offers a rich variety of innovative digital content on every aspect of theatre.

  • New website look & feel

    As a result of the damage done earlier in the year by hackers, we have had to create an entirely new site. We hope you like the feel and find the navigation easy to use. We will continue to add content weekly so keep checking in for the latest news and information.

  • New Venue and Dates Announced

    May 7th 2016 Saturday.. starting at 9.00am - 6.00pm

    May 8th 2016 Sunday..... starting at 9.45am - 4.45pm

    Traditionally our show has run in line with Easter holidays but, as we continue to grow, it has been noted that this is a time when many people may be on family holiday or educational semester break and cannot schedule a visit to the show. With this information in mind, we considered moving our dates at the Business Design Center. Sadly they were unable to offer a suitable alternative. After very careful consideration we have taken the decision to transfer our coming event to the Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th May at the new location of

    Novotel Convention Centre, Hammersmith, London, W6 8DR

    This experienced venue offers a number of additional benefits to our attendees and exhibitors, i.e. in-house catering and on-site accommodation. It also boasts closer access to the airport and main rail/road infrastructures with adjacent parking for large vehicles and coaches. Free access to fast broadband connection and a larger number of rooms available for education seminars.

    With planning for 2016 is well under way it promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

  • Website Back up and Running

    We apologise that we have been unable to update our website for the last couple of months. It was discovered we had been hacked quite badly earlier in the summer and we are only now getting the site back and live. We have tried to create a clean, simple and easy to navigate site with plenty of content. We will continue to post regular updates and news from the industry so please keep checking in.


    Regards Chris McGowan Show Director
