I'm presuming you can buy a ticket for just one day?
honestly, although I'd love to do multiple days and hotel and all that kind of thing, the cost makes it prohibitive. There's only so much I feel able to spend on my hobbies and crafts, seeing as we moved here to allow early retirement for my beloved, and he's STILL working part time/low stress job.
So it's up and back in one day, or not at all.

Of course there might be a show nearer to me - at the Bath& West showground or something? I used to live right by the Three Counties in Malvern, so the Quilt Show there was nice and easy.

REALLY no more room for vintage machines!  :)

Yes, of course you can do one day. 

The West Country Quilt Show was at UWE in Bristol at the beginning of September.  The dates for 2018 don't seem to have been published yet.  I'm going to Malvern later in the month.

I've only ever done a Thursday - 4 years. I only really go for the quilts as I have two very good fabric suppliers locally so one day is plenty for me. It's a great day out, a friend goes for two days.
