Anyone been previously?
Do retailers generally have good deals available here?

If you live nearby its worth a look but personally I would not travel from afar for it. Tends to be very crowded and some retailers have pulled out. The International Astronomy Show is in many ways better (more space, better venue). Most retailers have show specials but its very easy to be enticed into spending more than you planned. Its a good opportunity to drool over things you wouldn't normally see. If you want to attend any of the lectures be sure to book early (for either venue) as they do get booked out quite quickly.

Oh, that's a shame.
We're going down from Glasgow, just for the saturday - no great shakes if its rubbish, we're staying with family, so all is not lost - and I'm hoping LJMU will be there so I can speak to them about their MSc options. Cheap gear would just have been a bonus...
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
