Excellent. Thanks for the heads up. I won't be able to get there much before 11:30 so hopefully the queue will have reduced by then.


Cheers

Well that should save you some pennies Paul! Most of the bargains will be gone by then! :smiling3:

That will depend on how early you are. I try to get there between 8:45 - 9:15 and usually manage to get quite close to the main entrance. Last year I was right next to the door!
I will be there early!!! so first park.....and then a coffee :smiling3:

Thanks Dave! Very useful ;)


Mmmm.....I supose that the main car park will be full, so difficult to park there....I said because I'm more worried about to drive on the right than anything else :smiling3: :smiling3: :smiling3:
If you can't get in the show car park,there is a multi storey car park you can park in which is a short walk from the show. Put TF3 4BX into your sat nav. And you will need some one pound coins as you have to pay at a parking meter.

Every time I've been I've just joined the que and paid on the door.Maybe there's more information on the IPMS web site. I used to be  member.But I didn't see the point of it so didn't renew my membership after the first year. And don't worry about missing out on bargains. There is a huge amount of modelling stuff on sale. I hope you've brought plenty of money with you?

Polux, I wish you well on your trip to Telford. I tip my hat to you, good sir!


Logistically it is not on the table for me from the South of England........maybe one day I will make the pilgrimage. ;)


The last time I was up there was on business to attend weather testing of a curtain wall system at a test centre, more than 10 yrs ago. 9_9

Anyway you can buy the tickets first, and then wait for to 10am?
'fraid not! As far as I know there are two queues. One for IPMS members and one for the rest of us poor mortals. We can start going in at 10:00am and buy the tickets on the way in. They usually have several entrances, like the tills at the supermarket, so once they are open, the queue moves pretty fast. I seem to remember - can anybody confirm this please? - there are coffee machines at the entrance so you can get something to drink while you're waiting.

There was no confusion at all, if you look back at the thread for last year it was decided to meet at the Ludlow suite at midday both days, I waited outside for 15 mins before going in and finding Tanktrack. No-one else came close to that door in all the time we were there !
I was there

Last year there was a proper Costa type place with nice cakes as well :smiling3:
