The 2016 edition of the RISC OS Wakefield Show is set to take place on Saturday, April 16 at the Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield.
For well over a decade, the show has been considered the largest event of the RISC OS calendar – and although the London Show seems to be rivalling it these days, the show is still a not-to-miss for any seasoned RISC OS user.
This show will be taking place across three rooms this year – the Cypress, Hawthorne and Oak suites.
Travel-wise, the hotel is very near to junction 39 of the M1, and a free minibus service is being run by the Wakfield RISC OS Usergoup to pick show-goers up from Wakefield Westgate railway station.
Doors to the halls open at 10:30am, with the show set to finish around 4.30pm. Entry for adults will be a measly £5.
There are 21 exhibitors confirmed for the show, with the usuals set to be present – including RISC OS Open who will be showing off recent developments to RISC OS 5. MW-Software appear to have pulled out of the event however, which is a bit of bad news as Martin always seems to provide a bit of class to the show with his sharp dress sense!
R-Comp will be flogging their wide range of hardware and software, including their flagship ARMX6 machine and their new Titanium-based TiMachine, which is currently available as an Early Access machine as some quirks are ironed out.
CJE Micro’s will be showing off their RapidO Ti computer as well as their huge range of old and new products, including an impressive variety of Raspberry Pi accessories.
Amcog Games will be in attendance, hopefully Anthony will be showing visitors to the stand an early version of his new Fervour clone – with development looking like it’s gaining some good traction at the moment.
