Northern Guitar Shows have operated successfully in the Leeds/Manchester/Liverpool/North East areas for the last 18 years. Using well run, secure sites with good facilities, the shows have grown over the years and provide a great outlet for traders and a wonderful resource for the public who have access to thousands of bargains in guitar related products in one place alongside superb live performances.   This year, the organisers, Peter and Gail Hoarty, decided to expand south and ran their first show in the London area at Kempton Park Racecourse Exhibition Centre. The response from traders in the south and existing northern contacts led to a full house.  133 exhibitors spread over two floors with a separate area for the live acts plus ample parking and a cafe on the first floor. The show attracted a bumper crowd - this was value for money and there were many new guitars and amps heading home from a very satisfied public.
The story of the day was the 'burst' bought by a dealer going upstairs for coffee only to sell it on the way down.  Later in the show it was sold once more.  8 6898 and the pics are below.
