Congratulations Claire! :hug:
It's my first time too so I'm a bit nervous aswell... I also have my first stall so I'm frantically trying to get everything ready although, to be honest, I don't know if what I'm doing is right??!! bear_rolleyes  Do you have a stall?
Try not to worry, it'll be lovely to put names to faces when we all meet up next weekend. I'm not looking forward to leaving home at 4am though!
Love & Hugs,

Congratulations Claire. I can't wait to go either!
It's my first time being nominated in these awards too. I have never been to Brighton or Hove so I decided not to book a stall and have a wander around instead. We go down there on Saturday and come home on Monday.

I look forward to seeing everyone there.

Big congratulations Claire!  I know how you are feeling as this will be my first time too and I have no idea what we have to do or when we have to get there.

Does anyone know???

So enjoy your day and good luck with your nomination.  Look forward to meeting you amidst all the bears!

Sorry, can't help you on that one Marilyn. I did send an email asking the other week, but I still haven't got a reply. My plan is to get there at the start of the show and play it by ear.

We did get a letter last year advising a time when we needed to display our nominated pieces by - might still be time to receive one yet ??
I know they have to stay in place until 4pm . I think it was 10 am they had to be in the (separate) judging room ... which ties in with the
"doors opening" . I'll probably try and get there for 9.30 am .

Congratulations Claire,

I too received my nomination 2 weeks ago and have shipped my bear piece off to Wendy at Wendy's World Fairs.  If you haven't heard back from her, please try again.  Shes probably busy organizing everything,  she has always looked after my bears for me in the past.   I'm sure she has all the info...

Good luck in Hove and Do take pictures!!!!

Hi All,
I have a stall & Wendy Sent a letter out informing that we can be there to set up as early as 7.30am!! The show is open from 10am - 4pm so I'm assuming the bears will need to be there during that time for judging? I'm sure it'll all become clear once we arrive?
I'm leaving home at 4am so I can't really go much earlier!! bear_grin I'll be the one with the matchsticks in place to keep my eyes open lolling around behind my stall trying to stay awake!! Probably best not to come after 3.00 as I'll be under the stall catching up on my sleep!! :crackup:
So looking forward to meeting you all... Please come up & say "hello" if you can & I don't see you first? I'm on the first floor...
Hugs,
Julia xxx :hug:

bear_original Thanks everyone. It's great to know that I'm not the only newbie. Sandra, I don't have a stall either and my bear and I are probably going to be getting there on public transport... hope I can get there in time! Where do I put my bear... is there a table for them or something? look forward to meeting those who can make it :hug:  I'll be the one looking a wee bit lost bear_whistle  Big hugs, Claire

Last year there was a side room on the ground floor for the judging / viewing by the public .
Just ask the people on the desk as you enter the building . By the way there is a multi-storey car park
right opposite the Town Hall in Hove . The fair itself was on the 1st floor in one room .

Hope this helps  bear_original
