Do you have a link for the Weston-Super-Mare Show?
It's usually Easter w/e Sat & Sun, I think, & during my annual UK trip.

yes we went, took the vitara as the consul has no front bumper and the wipers are rubbish in rain!
not a good as before, seems to be getting smaller each time, quite a few cars though still.

as for the shows, i met a few chaps who said they are now going to have the shows in 2019, the april one should be at easter.
sorry no links, not seen many at all for this show!
also the grove park ones should also run.

We thought the show was pretty poor, very few decent autojumble stalls and lots of new tools/handbags and heat pad stalls, not motoring related.
It has been getting worse each time we go, 3 shows each year at the same place it doesn't do much for variety.

i think you are right, not enough jumble, we are going to the nec show in march and maybe the shepton summer show but might miss the 2 winter ones now.

If it wasn't for meeting up with friends and having a chat the show would be totally worthless to us. We won't be going again to the November/February events.
