I've just read on STW that Bespoked is moving to the velodrome in London.

I was hoping to go the the show next year, after the NEC show I fancied looking at more boutique stuff.

The bespokedbristol website has expired or brought down.

Looks like a weekend in London next year, and more cost.

I'll definitely be going -- I'd prefer to visit Bristol than London, but the velodrome will be a great venue. And they definitely need more space :)

hmm, i do and don't mind,

pros,

more space
probably a better venue
can stay at a mates after and get pissed and have a curry because i'll go on the train


cons,

i liked the back road blast to bristol on my motorbike from southampton
it's london
being in london i bet it gets taken over by condor and BLB, don't get me wrong i don't have a problem with them but i don't feel that condor are the same (handbuilt wise, volume etc) as the smaller builders so can't be put into the same category, condor to a small builder is the same as ford is to pagani if that makes sense!

so, for me good and bad potentially, either way i'll go because i know i'll enjoy it.

:D

This year will probably be my last then :?
I don't think the show will benefit from a larger venue, access to the current venue is pretty good by road and fantastic by rail.
Shame :(
