What they said about the show this year…..

A great interview with Ray Hale in the Smithsonian Web magazine.

Hi Ray, now that the dust has settled a big thanks for Sunday, first time attending and we thought it was an excellent event, very well organised, top venue and brilliant atmosphere.  Please pass out regards to all of the organisation staff.  Hopefully we will see you at the next event “  Clayton Patilla

“Just recovering from the incredible show at the British Tarantula Society on Sunday, this has been the biggest show, a magnificent event with a wonderful layout, no overcrowding inside (although the queue to get in was huge) so plenty of space to walk about and see tables and a great friendly atmosphere, this one will take some beating, a big thank you to all who worked so hard to keep it as smooth as it was and to all who attended.”

Graham and Janice:  Metamorphosis
