Britain’s national media supported us well at the the recent Weston Poster Show, and as a result the review reports are giving us critical acclaim.  The article below written by respected journalist Geoff Courtney, includes comments from guests and delegates as well as giving facts and figures about this unique event in railway circles.  It seems everybody who came enjoyed the show and for us, it is the icing on top of a very successful book project.HR1414 article

GREAT WESTON POSTER SHOW – ONE TO SAVOUR!!!!!

Posted by: Judi – Date: Monday, November 24, 2014

The show is over and the posters are packed away, but what a weekend it was !  Nearly a thousand people came to see us and several hundred pounds were raised for charity.  Richard was interviewed by the BBC and this went out on Saturday evening 15th November on Points West.  As a result we were busy the next day. Below is a photo of the completed exhibition just before we opened.  The central display was completely surrounded by two tiers of posters: a breathtaking effect!
