After a two year covid-enduced hiatus, we are very pleased to announce that DEMU Showcase will take place this year on 23/24th July 2022 at Sutton Coldfield Townhall in Sutton, just north of Birmingham city centre.

As you are probably aware, we have been looking for a new ‘home’ for Showcase after leaving Burton-on-Trent Town Hall in 2018 due to the space available to hire reducing considerably that year. Unfortunately, in 2019 we were forced to re-arrange the show at very short notice after cancellation by our anticipated new Burton venue and ended up at Greenbank Leisure Centre in nearby Swadlincote.

The Showcase organising team are mindful of the need for stability and to try and find a location that we can call home for a number of years to come. We believe that we have found this with Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. On this basis, we have decided to ‘bite the bullet’ and move the show this year. Unfortunately, the price we pay for this means moving from our usual early June date to mid July. Rest assured, this is a temporary arrangement for this year only and we plan to return to our early June slot from 2023 onwards.

Not only is the Town Hall an extremely characterful building, but it is a mere 2 minutes walk from Sutton train station and only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Sutton Coldfield itself. Sutton Coldfield is well connected to the national motorway network in the centre of the country and only a few minutes off both the M6 and the M6 toll. There is also plentiful parking nearby.

Regarding the covid situation, If the last two years are anything to go by, we anticipate that mid summer gives us the best possible opportunity of running a show with little or no restrictions. Clearly however, if the situation changes we may be forced to restrict numbers and comply with any other regulations that might come into force.

We look forward to seeing you this summer in Sutton!

It was good to see DEMU's Showcase return once again after a 2 year hiatus.

 

A new date and a new venue were needed due to a combination of costs and availability (made harder by the Jubilee celebrations). The new venue was great and personally as someone in a wheelchair I found it pretty good with only the stage inaccessible unless I went up with crutches (which I did once, but I elected not to try another time!). The cable covers were a problem, but the organising team noted this and will make changes for next years show.

 

I felt the quality of the layouts was fantastic and it was good to see so many familiar faces after what felt like ages. Well worth the trip across to Sutton Coldfield.

 

The show will return next year to the same location, in June. Keep an eye out for more details on the DEMU website.
