British Shohin UK Exhibition
Failand Hall Bristol March 24th 2012

Despite absolutely atrocious weather this event broke all records for Shohin events in the UK.

The quality of the trees, and the way in which they were displayed, were first class. There were 30 exhibitors and nearly 100 trees on display and all without exception were of a very high standard. All feedback received by the organisers has been more than just positive.

FoBBS congratulations should go to those of you who won well deserved awards.
