Yes it is at the Grove Leisure Centre.London Road. New Balderton. Newark, Notts NG24 3AL. It is not a huge bug fayre but really friendly, some hobbyist breeders take thier surplus stock and no one seem to over charge, there is time to meet up with people and have a chat and no need to starve the burger van outside does a good burger and clean too. 12 noon to 4 pm. I am not sure if spider shop or Martin Goss is going this time Maybe I could find out. Hope to see you there. Take care. Come and say hello:)

Don't think I'll be going this time. I've just spent about 500 at thespidershop.co.uk in the past few weeks, so I've blown my budget for the next few months!:p

If I do go, I'll only end up buying even more. Best give it a miss this time! Shame, I got some real bargains last year.

Ba humbug lol You can still come and pay a vist we would love to see you, although I have no spiders to sell I am having a table as i have found a company that will suply me with some really good sling tubs and they are working out really cheap, I dont know about you but I find it really hard to get hold of them that are all the same and not costing the earth. anyway I am going to see if anyone is intested as I buy to such huge amounts far too many for myself alone. You can always have a chat and maybe make some new friends, YES? we really need to keep up the little shows as there are not many of them and they need our 2.50s to keep going thats why I try and encourage people to go to them. Do try we would love to meet you. Take care Yvonne

Haha most likely, if there was a C.Cyaneopubescens or T.blondi (lol) then all bets are off. Mostly looking at Roach colonies and other assorted items. Dont think she can make it this time think she has a pleasure ride with her new horse.

I'll try and get to this - never been to a show before! It's only about 40 minutes up the A1 for me so should be able to make it. Will probably end up spending my Christmas shopping budget on T's though, hahaha!

Well for 2010, the date is Sunday 5th December but not sure what the weather will do to it being held or not. If we hear something then I am sure it will filter through to here.

As of today the show is still on and the roads have cleared somewhat with the rain. Hope its a great turnout despite the weather and other matters. Should be a great day for entomology enthusiasts everywhere.
