    I went to the one in Coventry and I have to say was not impressed.
    In my opinion it wasn't really worth travelling a distance for, but I did read more positive reviews on here.

    I go to the Education show every year, much more on show and bargains to be had, with a dedicated Early Years area.

    I went to the Coventry one last year and wasn't impressed, stayed overnight but actually just Friday was more than enough, I expected it to be much bigger. I went to one in Manchester quite a few years ago and that was huge.

    I went to Coventry in Sept and was really disappointed at the lack of stalls.

    The Sat is my birthday so I think I will give it a miss!

    Doesn't sound very promising, might have a re-think!

    Yes I agree. It didn't take too long to look around. Luckily DS was obsessed with the mud kitchen and sand pit which took up some time!

    The one in London is held at Olympia which is a huge venue...never been but thinking of going as not far from me
    I suppose it is not the size of the venue but the attraction and what is available on the day?
