Nottingham Card Fair on Sunday September 2 (the day after York Cardexpo) has a special one-off venue at the De Vere Jubilee Conference Centre and Hotel.
Organisers Reflections of a Bygone Age were told on July 9 that the planned venue at King’s Meadow Campus was unavailable because of the university’s new contract with Heart Church in Nottingham – which is now using Studio 7 every Sunday for their services.
The university offered the De Vere Hotel as an alternative, and Reflections was forced to choose between cancelling the event or accepting the new venue, with all the administrative work involved in a late venue change.
Brian and Mary Lund decided to go ahead with the fair as the best option.
The venue, in Triumph Road, postcode NG7 2TU, is close to the regular one – to which the fair will return on Saturday November 3.
It is off the A52 Derby Road into Nottingham, accessed via the Queen’s Medical Centre roundabout.
Brian said: “The hotel is extremely well-appointed, with excellent catering facilities and a stunning outlook onto a lake. The area has been beautifully-landscaped.”
