Due to a small confusion over dates, the NetSurf Developers were still finishing off NetSurf 3.0 when the show opened.

As we’ve come to expect, the CJE Micro’s stand had a wide range of items for sale.
R-Comp seemed to be busy for most of the day.
The show organisers had a Raspberry Pi in the prize draw – won by Richard Brown of Southend.
There was a fair amount of 8-bit kit at the show, including this collection from Jason Flynn.
Keith Dunlop’s Usable Range was once again on hand to show what RISC OS can do with graphics and sound.
Aemulor Pi did pretty much what it said on the tin: legacy 26-bit software on the Pi.
Retro Software and BeebMaster had more 8-bit hardware on display.
The charity stall managed to raise around £800 for the Wakefield Hospice.
The show’s organisers – Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club.
A man in a bow tie at a RISC OS show needs little introduction: of course it’s Martin Wuerthner.

The RISC OS Open stand had a regular stream of visitors throughout the day.

Despite having no new releases, this was still an unusually quiet moment on Martin Wuerthner’s stand.
It was hard to find a quiet moment to photograph the CJE Micro’s stand.
The calm before the storm: setting up the Hawthorn and Oak Suites.
Show Supremo Chris Hughes makes sure that Chris and Steve Bass understand what he thinks they should be doing.
We’re late opening...

We’re open at last...
