    UKAPS are incredibly excited to announce the UK's first ever dedicated live aquascaping event.

    Our aim is to inspire and educate new and experienced hobbyists alike with a wide variety of exciting aquascaping experiences.

    The UKAPS Aquascaping Experience will be held at a one-day event in the brilliant iCon Innovation Centre in Daventry on Saturday 5th March, starting at 10am.

    Highlights include -

    Hardscape Challenge - 10 competitors go head-to-head to create the best layout possible using a selection of high-quality hardscape materials. £1,000 prize money to be won!

    Aquascaping Demonstration - UKAPS Founders, Dan Crawford and George Farmer take you through the process of creating a stunning rock-based aquascape.

    Photography Workshop - Stu Worrall, professional photographer and leading UK aquascaper shows you how to take the best possible photo of your aquascape.

    Aquascaping Seminar - George Farmer, the UK's most prolific aquascaper and international ambassador for the hobby will deliver a 60 minute talk on Aquascaping Principles.

    Entry is free.

    Come along and be inspired by the wonderful art of aquascaping, courtesy of UKAPS.

    This is going to be the biggest event ever in the UK and probably one of the best in Europe for this year! Lots of seminars, live scaping and great prizes! Come on, lets make history :) Hope to see many of the UKAPS faces there! CAN'T WAIT! :)

    Will there be any sponsor shops onsite? No one can resist buying stuff at things like these with all the inspiration going on

    This is a hobbyist event only, no trade at the event.

    That's fine, we've always got our phones to buy something from the current sponsors :)

    There will be plenty of hardscape, some of the contest tanks and other items to buy. Also the UKAPS garments ;)

    Is that list comprehensive or will there be any sponsor exhibition stands/retail stands?

    There will be traders in attendance but not in official capacity ie. no retail stalls etc. We wanted to create a hobbyist event, for the hobbyist - by the hobbyist. Of course we will take feedback from this first event and look at making changes for future events.

    Watched the Vid George, but how do we put our names down to be part of the scaping competition. As I am up for that.

    Hi Brian, there are few hotels around, but the Orchard Self-Catering Apartments are cheap and decent.
