Midlands show report

Posted by Alasdair Bailey on 00:00, 12/12/1998 | , ,
 

The Acorn Midlands Show was held on Saturday 28th November, 1998, and appeared to be a great success both from an exhibitor's point of view and from the user's viewpoint. The hall used was a fair bit smaller than that used for the South East show back in June but the atmosphere was very good at this show, perhaps better even than that at the earlier South East show.
 

There wasn't really much to shout about happening at the show apart fom CJE's hint that they may be able to bring the RISC OS 4 upgrade to existing Risc PC users. So here's some photos of well known figures in the Acorn gaming scene:
