Forgive me if I shouldn't be posting this but have only just found it on another site.

The Midlands Bead Fair is today at Uttoxeter Race course, 10am - 4pm, 4 admission.

Have managed to talk my partner into taking me & wanted others to know about it too.

Well, I went & to be honest, I expected a lot more.

Found some nice beads reasonably priced & then found some beads very overpriced so wasn't too impressed with that.

Not sure it was worth the 4 admission.

Most stalls it seemed to be, were selling the same type of bead & I could not for the life of me find the one bead that I want at the moment.

Oh well, you live & learn.
