(PRESS RELEASE): Northern Guitar Shows Ltd are delighted to announce that they will be hosting a new guitar show in the London area.

The South of England Guitar Show will be held at Kempton Park Racecourse on 23rd October 2016 from 10am to 5.00pm. The event will follow the extremely successful model that NGS Ltd have been promoting in the North where they have had nearly 60 events in the last 20 years including the annual North West Guitar Show and Merseyside Guitar Show.

The organiser, Peter Hoarty, said, "We have been asked many times to bring our style of affordable, grass roots guitar shows to the South and we have now located a venue which ticks all the boxes. Our shows have always been based on the principle of value for money for exhibitors and the public. That includes an affordable entrance fee for visitors, moderate exhibitor prices with no added extras, free parking for all and good transport links."

There is space in the main exhibition hall at Kempton Park for more than 100 exhibitors and there will be live music included in a separate hall with bands, workshops and demos. The show is based on the US style of table-top exhibition and is very much a retail event with buying, selling and trading of new, vintage and used guitars, amps, pedals and accessories encouraged.

Registration is open to any business with guitar-related products including retailers, distributors, manufacturers, luthiers, boutique makers and even private collectors and dealers.

Public admission will be £10 with accompanied under-12's free.

Trade and private exhibitor spaces are available now starting at £75. Demand is expected to be high so early booking is recommended.

NGS Ltd sponsors are Vintage Guitars and Fret-King Guitars with John Hornby Skewes Ltd.
