Welcome to the UK Pen Show Website
If you have an interest in pens and writing equipment, either as a collector or simply like using a fountain pen there is nothing to beat going to a pen show.
The excitement of seeing thousands of writing instruments, the scale can be mind numbing, the amount of knowledge that you can pick up from the dealers and other visitors. You will find that dealers are friendly people and only too keen to pass on their knowledge to you – and of course not forgetting the social side of the event.
UK Pen Shows are owned and organised by two friends who share a love of fountain pens. Jeremy Collingridge and Ian Williamson are both members of the Writing Equipment Society having both served the organisation as council members for many years.
Indeed they both had their first experience of organising a pen show with the first London Writing Equipment Show when W.E.S. took it over and they have both been involved in its organisation since, Jeremy as show manager and Ian as marketing lead. However 2010 saw both participate in the organisation of LWES for the last time to allow both to concentrate on other things.
UK Pen Shows is almost a labour of love, they have three aims for each show, to make the experience enjoyable for visitors and dealers, to have fun and to keep their personal losses as small as possible!
