Although we have not organised an event the night before ScooterExpo, a number of exhibitors, traders and attendees are arriving early and staying at local hotels. The town of Alfreton offers numerous pubs and restaurants, so it is likely if you’re out for the night you’ll bump into fellow scooterists somewhere!
There is also a soul night about three miles away where camping is apparently available. Details are on the leaflet below and you should call the number on it for further details.
The same weekend sees the Prodigy scooter rally taking place near Manchester, and ScooterExpo makes for a perfect place to stop off on the way home from that too!
There will be a map in the free event programme showing the approximate layout of the two halls.
We have guest speakers including Norrie Kerr and Martin ‘Sticky’ Round who will be talking in the conference room, adjacent to Hall 1 (bowling hall). Times will be displayed on the day.
Dave Dickinson will be air-brushing live throughout Sunday in Hall 1, so please feel free to check out his work and discover what is involved with creating a masterpiece of art.
Also in Hall 1, Corky will be showing off his upholstery skills, finishing dead, spare wheel and panel covers live in front of everyone and answering any questions you may have.
Slacker-the-Pinstriper will be painting live in Hall 2 so you can watch him work on other people’s scooters, or book your panel work in for a makeover during the show.
A number of traders at Scooter Expo will be able to accept credit cards, including ScooterNova magazine, Scooter Products and Crusader Promotions.
However if you need cash then the town of Alfreton has numerous banks with ATM cash machines, all within a few minutes walk.
FOOD & DRINK
Alfreton Leisure centre has a small bar area in Hall 1 and a little cafe in the venue’s main reception. Between them they will offer hot and cold drinks, snacks and a limited selection of alcoholic drinks.
We also have a bar installed in Hall 2 offering draught beer, lager and cider, and there will be a street-food vendor located outside in the car park.
The town of Alfreton is only a few minutes walk away and has a variety of establishments usually open on Sunday including pubs (the nearest is the Wagon & Horses – a Wetherspoons), Tesco supermarket (with cafe), a local cafe, a bakery, coffee and sandwich shops.
