Best of British Bonsai Event

Post  Dave Bibby on Sun Apr 12, 2009 7:46 pm

This weekend has seen the first Best of British Bonsai event at Birmingham U.K. And what an event it proved to be!! Some exceptional trees and displays from around the U.K. I'm sure that over the next couple of days there will be further postings, along with photo's attached.
To those that made the event such a success, the exhibitors, the traders, and not least, the hosts, warmest congratulations for a superb event.

BEST OF BRITISH BONSAI

Post  Tollster on Mon Apr 13, 2009 2:59 pm

As the fool who was instrumental in getting the Best of British Bonsai exhibition up and running. I would like to thank all the voluntary helpers who selflessly gave up three days of their time and worked hard to make this event run smoothly. To all the traders who made the effort to attend the show and who contributed so much to its success. A big thank you also.
For all of you who contributed trees for the exhibition, give yourselves a big pat on the back. This was the best display of bonsai seen in the UK to date. The bar has now been reset, we have a new benchmark to aim at for future shows. Lets hope we can keep this momentum going.
Because of the politics and huge egos which pervade British bonsai, there was a lot of negativity leading up to the event. Lets hope we have all made the first steps in pulling British Bonsai together.
Share the passion!

Great words indeed Steve... in terms of Quality of Exhibition, passion of the Demonstrators, the huge numbers that attended, variety of Traders and all round feel good factor, Indeed this was by far the best Bonsai Show to be held in the UK to date.

More to come from me on the show in another post bounce

Jerry thanks for putting up these images of folk who were there... 2 days of demoing with Marc in a separate building meant that I did not get to see many of my friends who came to the show... Mike and Mick for example Shocked

BTW I will be down at Dragon Bonsai on the 10th May... we can catch up then!

Lucky Boy

Post  bonsai monkey on Fri Apr 17, 2009 7:36 pm

I'm late on parade as usual but I must join the rest of the guys in congratulating the organisers, participants and traders for for was a fantasic show. I was only there for one day so unfortunatly I could not attend any of the demos, sorry Tony, but I had just about enough time to take in the wonderful trees (and blow my budget affraid ) and excellent pots 'n stuff. Great to catch-up with so many people although I don't know where I got the tag "Vodka Monster" from Embarassed

I've been a lucky boy this year to take in the BSA Show & BoBB in short measure and it has really fired me up (just ask Stone Monkey Laughing ) and taught me alot. Still lots to learn but I hope I'm now going in the right direction.

Great job everyone and I can't wait til the next time Laughing
