The Wakefield Acorn & RISC OS Computer Show
In May 1996, Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club organised the first Wakefield Acorn Computer Show. The event was quickly arranged at short notice, following the cancellation of the Acorn User Spring Show in Harrogate, and was held in the Cedar Court Hotel at Calder Grove near Wakefield.
In 2000 the show became known simply as “Wakefield 2000” – and the naming convention has continued to the present day. Although the date has already had to change from April due to our venue’s refurbishment overrunning, we hope that Wakefield 2022 will be returning in-person on 21st May 2022. Details can be found on the dedicated show website.
The rest of this page contains information about past shows, including photographs and links to reviews from show organisers and the RISC OS press.
There is also a look back over the first five years of the show, written by Mike Wilson after the 2000 show.
