It is that time of the year again folks - the AES show at Kempton Park. For financial and family reasons we won't be there this year, but I hope that we shall be back next year. However, here are the details from today's Entomological Livestock Group newsletter:
AES Annual Exhibition and Trade Fair: 2009 - 17th October 2009 (11:00 - 16:30) The AES first
held an annual exhibition in 1939, since then the exhibition has grown in to the largest entomological fair in the UK. The exhibition is held at Kempton Park Racecourse during the autumn each year. The Annual Exhibition and Trade Fair hosts a mixture of societies' stands and traders selling entomological equipment, livestock, mounted specimens, books and cabinets. The
exhibition is the place to buy entomological ephemera, meet fellow enthusiasts and have a
great day out. The exhibition is open to members of the public and not just members of the AES.
Should you wish to join the AES then you can do so on the day but you don't have to be a member to attend. For more details see the AES website - Admission is £3 for adults and £1 for kids. Bug club members bearing an exhibit, though, will get in free, as will one accompanying adult.
