The very first South of England Guitar Show which took place in Kempton Park Racecourse on the 23rd of October turned out to be a very successful event. Peter Hoarty of Northern Guitar Shows Ltd has been putting guitar events for the last 20 years, but this was the first time that NGS finally organised a show in the London area. Guitar events had previously only taken place in Northern England, in locations just outside major centres including Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle upon Tyne.
The London event, which was the 65th event organised by Peter and his team, featured 130 exhibitors, a live stage with a series of bands and a non-stop flow of guitar enthusiasts. A 2017 edition for the London event has now been confirmed and will take place at the same location.
Peter spoke Making Music News and shared his thoughts on the show.
