13th Lockexpo photo review

* Locks1.jpg
The 13th annual Lockexpo was last weekend at the Belfry hotel, Nottingham. Sponsored this year by Hickleys and as always the exhibitors made the show stand out. Lots of colourful stands, plenty to browse and buy.

The weather was a bit threatening in the forecast but it turned out to be amazing sunny weather. Visitor registrations were high and the percentage that booked in very, very good many staying overnight for a second day. The bring and buy table proved popular with an assortment of goods being displayed and sold.
