50 Plus Expo heads to Spain this December.

50 Plus Expo favourite Eric Knowles, known to millions for his appearances on BBCs The Antiques Road Show, will once again be on hand to offer free valuations of small items and larger items from photographs.



The hugely popular 50 Plus Expo, (formerly Over 50s Show), the lifestyle event for the Coast’s retired ex-pats, is returning this year at a new upmarket venue. The event will take place at the five-star Hotel IPV Palace and Spa Hotel, fronting the A7 and next to the castle at Fuengirola on Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3, 2017.

The organisers say they have brought the event to the east of the Coast, ‘following requests from numerous exhibitors and visitors’. But, they say, it will be ‘business as usual’ for the show which will include many of the features which have made this unique event so successful over the last decade.

Eric Knowles of The Antiques Road Show, will be back giving free valuations from small items and collectibles, and larger pieces from photographs.  Also covered will be fashions, jewellery, pottery demonstrations, bridge tuition, free health checks, financial, pensions and legal advice, TV reception specialists, art, modern dance lessons, spa treatments, eye health, spinal treatments, ear testing, plus entertainment, and much, much more.

The organisers add that because the event will be mounted at the beginning of the festive season there will also be many Christmas attractions, notably cookery demonstrations offering traditional fayre and   more novel cuisine, as well as a Christmas gift feature.

The event offers the over-50s ‘a one-stop shop’ to get information on their physical and financial health as well as enjoy many of their interests and hobbies.  Health and well-being will be a key element of the event based on the well-proven premise that exercise, sensible diet, and regular, routine monitoring slows down the age process.

Visitors can avail of blood pressure and blood glucose tests;   spine monitoring and bone density screening will also be available, backed by information on treating arthritic joints and knee pain.
