Staffordshire County Showground – a great new BFFI venue
The Staffordshire County Showground is located 2 miles from junction 14 of the M6 motorway just outside Stafford. This location is very central for all areas of the UK and is close to 3 major airports and Stafford railway Station. This new site is about 12 miles from the original venue and is easily accessible from the M6, A34 and A51.
The show will be held in two inter-linked exhibition halls, the Prestwood Centre (1366 metres square) and the Argyle Centre (1157 metres square) giving a total of over 2500 metres square of indoor show arena.
The site has –
- Ample free parking.
- Permanent Buildings.
- Mains electricity.
- In built heating system.
- Announcement systems.
- Toilets located in the exhibition halls.
- A permanent onsite café facility.
- Larger casting areas on grassed areas adjacent to the exhibition halls.
- A more spacious layout allowing easier passage around the show.
There may be other events taking place in one of the other exhibition halls on the same weekend as BFFI – so something for non-fishing partners to do whilst you enjoy the show.
For more details of any other events on the showground please check www.staffscountyshowground.co.uk
The BFFI will remain a show that encourages everything of quality to do with fly tying and fly fishing. Only demonstrators of the highest standard will be invited. The invited trade stands will also be closely vetted – with exhibitors specialising in quality products being encouraged.
The BFFI does not encourage a bargain basement mentality so commonly seen at other shows.
