Wappinshaw 2013 is the 1st of June

With pleasure we announce that Wappinshaw 2013 will be held on the 1st of June at the Kelvinhall, Glasgow.

We've had a lot of difficulty in finding an appropriate venue - quite a lot of of choices have been denied to us because of refurbishment ahead of the Commonwealth Games next year.

All venues have positive or negative features. The Kelvin Hall is very accessible logistics wise, but obviously can't match the city-centre location of the Royal Concert Hall. Positively, it is three times bigger, so that means more traders and games to occupy your Saturday.

About the Kelvin Hall:

From the council webbie: 'Kelvin Hall International Sports Arena was converted from an Exhibition venue (circa 1925) and opened to the public in November 1987.
Two miles from the city centre in the historical heart of the city's West end it's well served by public transport and the surrounding area boasts bars, restaurants and hotels. The arena provides a centre for sporting excellence for organised clubs and the general public.'

The postcode is G3 8AW. Good access by public transport by bus, train and underground. More details to follow.
Only two minutes away is Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which is certainly worth a visit if you haven't been recently, or at all!

Plenty more announcements to follow, but in the meantime:

  2. Could you be so kind as to let me know what kind of stoles are going to be there so I can share with my Facebook group :)

    1. Hi Phil

      You might want to take a look at the wappinshaw Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Wappinshaw

  3. Phil,

    Last year was £3 for adults and £1 for <16s. I think it is a fairly safe bet that those prices will be maintained this year.

  4. Phil,

    Buy tickets on the day. Cash only.
    Stoles=stores? If so, we'll announce our first batch of confirmed traders very shortly and update the list as we make new confirmations - the same will be done for display/participation games.
