UK Hi-Fi Show Live Postponed

It is with great sadness that we receive the news of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. Our thoughts are with His Majesty The King and the Royal Family. At this time of national mourning, the UK Hi-Fi Show Live, hosted at the Ascot Grandstand is cancelled. The rescheduling of our event will be announced as soon as appropriate.

Original story (no longer correct):

At the time of writing, the sun most certainly 'has his hat on' and, 'hip-hip-hip hooray', hi-fi enthusiasts are coming out to play. As a group, it really does seem that we're relishing the opportunity to see, touch and hear all the new gear at hi-fi shows from as far afield as AXPONA in Chicago and High End in Munich. Emboldened by these successes, other big international events including the Warsaw Audio Show and the general consumer extravaganza, IFA Berlin, are full steam ahead for the end of October and very beginning of September, respectively.

Naturally, we're all very excited at the prospect of meeting so many of you again at our own UK Hi-Fi Show Live, hosted at the Ascot Grandstand on Sept 10-11th. Unless you've tried really hard, it's been almost impossible to miss coverage of Royal Ascot in mid-June. Held 'behind doors' in 2021, this year it returned with a flourish of sartorial elegance and Royal patronage, and served as a template for the success of large multinational, multi-day events.

I hope that catching a glimpse of the UK's premier Grandstand has also set your pulses racing at the prospect of meeting your 'hi-fi heroes' – the designers and personalities as well as the world's most exclusive separates.

Our show weekend also presents a unique opportunity to explore the Grandstand's iconic architecture from within, enjoying fine food and drink, savouring spectacular views from the 6th floor while being wrapped in the best sounds that hi-fi's high-end can offer. You'll also be able to browse the choicest vinyl and 'accessorise' your system with new cables, supports and conditioning.

Fast-track tickets are on sale so you can avoid queuing on the day. And neither have we forgotten those who kept us safe – NHS workers need only present their photo ID at the ticket desk for free entry. It's the least we can do.
