Stamp Active will be at Midpex

Stamp Active will have a stand at this national event to promote stamp collecting to young people. There will be free goodie bags for any youngsters.

The group will also be selling off some items to raise funds for the ongoing programme and will be pleased to receive any donations, particularly of thematic stamps, for Kidstamps, our free postal club for children.

MIDPEX 2023 IS NEARLY HERE at the Warwickshire Event Centre, Leamington Spa, CV31 1XN

1st July 2023 10:00am – 4:30pm

 The MIDPEX bi-annual philatelic show is nearly here, sponsored by Cavendish Philatelic Auctions Ltd. Dealers and Societies are now booking up for this popular and successful Show. Chairman, Clive Jones, said “Midpex is now one of the biggest stamp shows in the UK. Given there was no Spring Stampex in London this year, this is a great opportunity for collectors to view and buy some great items. It is also an important opportunity for national and regional Societies to showcase their activities and publications and recruit members. Everyone is really looking forward to the Show.” Organiser, Steve Harrison, commented “Dealers are enthusiastic about the show and many of them, as well as the Specialist Societies, have confirmed they are taking part with over 50 dealers booked and 30 Specialist Societies taking part. This is very encouraging and now shows that Midpex is well established in the philatelic calendar.” MIDPEX is the biennial exhibition first held in 1995 and attended by stamp collectors from across the UK. It brings together Specialist Societies with local, national and international dealers covering all aspects of Philately. The spacious venue is the same with extensive free parking and a free shuttle bus from Leamington Spa railway station.

It provides an opportunity for Specialist Societies to show off their sphere of interest to other collectors, to recruit members and identify common ground with members of other Societies. It also provides an opportunity for Societies to promote their publications and research projects and for members to meet informally, particularly those members who find it difficult to get to meetings in London. The event in 2023 has expanded with space for post card dealers as well as stamps, thematics and postal history.
