Due to the website going down, we were not able to thank all the Clubs that help, Traders & Visitors for their support in making the 2014 National Hamfest the best yet, so a big THANK YOU to everyone.

Because of the tremendous support we get we are again able to hold the pricing structure the same as last year and the team have already started planning for an even better National Hamfest 2015.
