Hi everyone, I'm a fledgling collector and enjoyer of celluloid in the South-West of England. This forum has been a great source of information in my early days, especially with the technical stuff. I wish I'd known about it years ago! Thanks for having me here.

Lee... Welcome!

Just to add to what David has mentioned in his message above, he organises probably the best convention in the UK for super 8 and 16mm films. It is in Blackpool every November and is brilliant. I have been attending for many years. I appreciate it is a bit of a haul from Newton Abbot but it is well worth it.
Just to show how good it is, there are people attending from mainland Europe. In fact, Dominique from Brussels who replied to you earlier has attended the last few, and there is a rumour that some of our forum friends from the States may be attending this year. It is THAT good.

The Film Fair sounds great, I'll see if I can make it this November.
