I haven't blogged since September! The main reason is being back at work, but more recently it's because the house has again been overtaken by boxes of Playmobil as I prepared a Western display for the first Playmobil Exhibition at Woodsetton School near Dudley.

Phil, a headmaster responded to my suggestion at the Playmobil Collector's Club of having a Playmobil UK Exhibition, and very kindly offered his school as the ideal venue. He came out with his Playmo habit and soon he had the whole school involved and playing with Playmobil. A date for a two day exhibition was agreed and we had just over a month to plan and prepare our displays. The short notice meant we did not have many exhibitors and only around 200 visitors, but this was not our priority for this first exhibtion: it was to demonstrate what could be done and establish what we hope will be an annual event.

Indeed, as soon as we had finished setting up Phil was already talking about next year's exhibition (I hope he's not regretting it!) and the provisional date has been set for the end of the 2015 Spring half term.We already have more exhibitors on board and we'll have plenty of time to drum up interest.
