A free and easy atmosphere reigns. Dealers arrive from 08.00 hrs and some not until 10.00 hrs, it depends on trains or traffic. As it is only a one day show and Dealers travel from as far away as Cornwall and Yorkshire, getting up at 03.00 hrs, some tend to leave around 15.00 hrs but there are always the stalwarts staying until the 16.00 hrs finish.
With 30 plus Dealers every month you are guaranteed to see some material of interest, whether you collect stamps, postal history or enjoy the thrill of buying complete collections. For many, of course, it is a monthly social gathering.
The Hotel has all the usual services, whether you require tea, coffee, a soft drink or something stronger. The Bars and restaurant, of course, offer breakfasts, lunches, dinners or snacks.
