Sunday January 29th 2012 sees the return of the annual South East Arachnid Show, our second show following the hugely successful 2011 show. This will be the only arachnid trade show in the south east of England.

The trade show will be held at the Ashford International Hotel in Ashford, Kent and sits just off junction 9 on the M20 so its easy to find. The full address of the venue is as follows.

Ashford International Hotel
Simone Weil Avenue,
Ashford,
Kent,
TN24 8UX
Tel: 01233 219988

The best ways of getting to the trade show are;
By car, just off junction 9 of the M20, it is also just 23 miles from Dover ferry port for anyone coming from the continent.
By train, the venue is 3 miles from Ashford international train station which is on the high-speed rail link so you can get there quickly and there is a short bus ride between the station and the venue.

There is a small entrance fee to the show, the prices are as follows.

Adult – £3
Child (5yrs-15yrs) – £1.50
Child (under 5) – Free
O.A.P – £1.50

Distance to travel? Don’t want to do an early morning start to get there on time?
The trade show is being held in a very nice 5* hotel so if you wish you could travel down the night before and have a night of luxury to wind down from your journey. The prices obvioulsy reflect the quality of the hotel which includes a gym, swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms — great for relaxing on the Saturday. The hotel is also equipped with a full bar and restaurant.

Another option available, is the Eureka business park opposite the hotel. Here you have the choice of 2 budget hotels. As well as the hotels there is a Bannatyne’s health and fitness club, a 12 screen multiplex cinema and an array of eateries including Frankie and Bennie’s, beefeater and the obligatory McDonalds, KFC etc so you could turn it into a weekend break. A pedestrian bridge from the park to Ashford hotel is currently in progress enabling a quick direct link to the show. If you are interested in the budget hotels, the details of the 2 hotels are as follows.

Just an update on the show arrangements. The bar area adjacent to the halls will contain the societies, so an excellent opportunity to socialise and consume some snacks. You'll find the big turnip supplier, Amateur Entomologist's Society, Phasmid Study Group and Essex Reptiles and Amphibians Club in this area.

One of the recent additions will be Bush Grub, giving us the opportunity to taste the foods we usually feed our inverts in lollypops, chocolates, sweets and savouries. We also have South Coast Exotics and Peter Shinn as additional traders plus numerous traders have booked extra tables. We're now approaching our maximum of 84 tables for the show.

The bar area will also contain the creche room for your purchases. Cost £1 which provides you with a ticket for the raffle which is drawn at 5pm.
