I find it ironic that they have teamed up with Stuff magazine to give tickets away. I went last year and it was mainly for adults with young kids. Anything being given away was biased towards little kids, although looking at the bags it was cack like 1GB USB sticks and a drink!

Most of what you could buy was cheaper elsewhere on the day, I bought the odd things from Amazon that I was interested in. Just bought a Bluetooth selfie stick for a fiver. A lot of the stalls seemed to sell the same Chinese generic stuff with their own labels stuck on it.
and yes we did go in the super theatre, and again it was a little interesting but aimed at kids and advertising company products.
I personally would not go again even with my kid when he's grown up a bit more, probably take him to a Curry's store and show the same sort of things without the fuss.
I took a day off last year to take my son as it fell in the school holidays also.
It was ok for a day out. I live in Nottm so drove and parked for £12. Took a packed lunch as I just didn't know the setup of food anyway.
We got there for opening at and I was back home for 2:30 I think.
My son was 5 years old so he just wanted to go on the consoles to play but with adults and teenagers not giving him a look in he had no chance.
I had a go on that MG Rover driving track but the best thing for both of us (and has created an impression on him) was the Robot Wars.
He sat there for an hour or so mesmerised and has since been loving the repeats on Challenge etc.
Just a shame they said we have an hour break and then we will be back. If we had not done the trade fair before (as that is what it is) then we would have killed time and gone back.

Free if you are fairly local then it was ok.
Would never pay for it and not worth travelling more than an hour or so for.

Use "Manything" app, very good... but I have an IPCam anyway so just stick to that.
You're obviously more likely to be burgled at night. Since phone cameras have an infrared filter build in, infrared lights which real CCTV use for night vision, won't work. Real security cameras also have a much lower lux level than a phone camera.

This is nothing more than promoting apps that have been around for years, with very little practical use.

maybe i'm missing something, but surely you could only position the old phone your using as a cctv camera next to socket to leave it plugged in, otherwise the battery would be dead and phone off in less than 24 hours??
before long every socket will be watching you
Trackview on playstore just as good

A couple of tips though. The 11-17 year olds driving school to the right as you enter doesn't seem to allow booking and required queuing for at least an hour and a quarter.
Also the course for trying out the Segways etc always was fully booked out in advance for the next section every time we went back and also seemed to have the least helpful woman attending to it.
Thank you for this, some of the reports on here have been a bit, well, sad, and we're going way out of our way to go, leaving at 5:45am and paid £30 in travel on the trains, I was really hoping there would be something more than stalls like a market. Thank you for posting.

This was just our opinion (two 47 year old Gadget Show Live virgins!) but it does maybe depend on what your expectations are. There seemed a lot for gamers and there was a couple of mini arenas still peddling ye old Robot Wars pastime.
I could have spent a lot more time on the Superfi stand experiencing the hifi gear and the stands with the Fitbit type stuff but the 10 year olds kept us moving after too long.
We were there from just after 10 until 4 after doing a few loops of the combined hall just to make sure we didn't miss anything and we didn't spend the money on the live show.
I ALSO HAVE TO SAY MARY THANKS AGAIN TO THE OP SLOAMAN AS THIS WOULD NOT BE SOMETHING WE WOULD HAVE CONSIDERED BUT PROVED A GOOD DAY OUT FOR OUR KIDS FOR THE PRICE OF AN OFF PEAK RAIL TICKET FROM SELLY OAK TO BIRMINGHAM INTERNATIONAL.
CHEERS!
Yes absolutely, thank you OP, we wouldn't have gone but we did because of you, and my 12 y/o got to drive a car and meet the Yogscast, it was a fine day out for the end of the school holidays.

I concur. Wouldn't have gone if not for free tickets - kids enjoyed it though even if me and my dad got a bit bored within a few hours!


Thanks xx

Discount valid till September 2014 for gadget show April 2015 ????????
I went to one of these a couple of years and wasn't impressed. ... the quantity of ground breaking technical gadgets were mininal if any at all. To relate the experience would be like visiting a large electronics shop like pc world or currys..... I hope other peoples experiences are better.

how do virgin meduia customers get discounted tickets for the gadget show?
Denziloshamen

Went last year and it was pretty rubbish.
Just one big trade show with inflated prices and a quick (and poor) show at the end.
Save your money.

This pretty much sums it up for me. The show was ok, but I foolishly thought I might be able to pick up a bargain or two from the trade stands. Sadly everything was at full retail price, which in the age of internet shopping and lower than rrp pricing almost everywhere it just isn't acceptable.

No freebies to be had either, it was all leaflets and catalogues.

I pretty much paid £20 to go shopping and come home with nothing.

The parts of the show I remember were good, it's just that I was on the side of the stage polly-anna (sp) was on; She wasn't that great, would have preferred Jasons side.

If you're into gaming I would suggest Euro Gamer.
I've been fro the past 2 or 3 years.
always have a good time, always get loads of freebies and if you know some one that's a Virgin Media customer you can pick up tickets for under a tenner (Usually £16 give or take)
