SOME UPCOMING LOCAL AND NATIONAL PHILATELIC EVENTS
In this section we will list some local and national events that might be of interest to our Members and fellow philatelists.
We will try and ensure these listings are accurate but, especially in this time of a pandemic, anyone planning to attend an event should always check with the organisers beforehand about any changes in date, time or place.
27 September to 30 September 2023
The most recent Stampex held at the end of September 2022 was regarded as highly successful by all those who attended - especially after two years of restricted access due to Covid.
many of the new innovations, such as the "table zone", "postcard day", and the focus on young collectors on Saturday are likely to be repeated next year. So it might be advisable to put the dates in the diary now?
At the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.
Entry on the first day will cost £10; entry on the remaining three days is free.
Tickets for the online version of the exhibition will cost £5.
Tickets may be bought online www.stampinternational.co.uk
There will be a full programme of displays and talks and there are special events for children.
