I went to the jukebox show in Brighton today, Sunday. I spent about an hour there - only a few arcade machines, one Merchantman crane, a clown catcher and a sweet vendor. Mostly 1950s clothes, ornaments and records, a few American cars outside.
Kempton Park is the better show I think.

Yes, after last year I did not want to make the trip. I might try Kempton, but events are becoming thin on the ground these days.

I didn't go this year as I was disappointed last year due to the lack of slots and money burning a hole in my pocket however maybe I'm missing the point. It does state Jukebox Fair/Show so maybe we are all expecting too much; in terms of jukeboxes they were plenty there last year. If it said coin operated amusement fair then I would feel hard done by. As it is, expect Jukeboxes, records and things connected with the fifties to be present at this show.
It was the case last year that the allwins, bandits etc. were highly overpriced and it all smacked of opportunism. If the pennymachines crew are running their Coventry auction this year, then I'm gonna get myself down there, as at least you know coin-op stuff will be present with some good bargains to be had.

The Jukebox Show at Brighton: Not too bad a day - the weather was nice and sunny and the drive from London with no traffic a dream.

Jukes thin on the ground and mostly records/clothing etc. A good band on Saturday and a few beers had. I will go back and support the show as if we don't they will die. !!JUNK!!

Oh by the way - the Merchantman crane was four thousand euro :shock:
and the American sweet vending machine sixteen hundred :NBG:
I did not ask about the clown catcher :!?!:

Hi , Newbie here. I went to the show last year as it`s near to me .( missed this one :( ) , I well remember days spent as a kid @ the Palace Pier . Those machines were old then - in the 60`s . Fascinating things though. Well, I pushed the boat out recently at an auction and bought a Novomat. Now I see on the web they are not so good :-( But it was from some of the profit I made on radio stuff from the same auction a month ago. So could an expert give me a honest opinion please. ? I do like the look of it because it`s similar to my Bal-Ami model E jukebox...No one likes those either . But when you " get into" one and find a Leak amp. and a Goodmans Audiom 60 speaker, you realise why it sounds better than it looks .I probably won`t be able to contribute much to the forum , but hope to learn from it. Best Wishes to you all. Nige
