Sunday 20th March 2016 - 10:00am to 5:00pm, The Scalford Hall Hotel, Melton Mowbray


It's here again - the hi-fi show that people look forward to all year! Known to many as the 'Pie-Fi Show' due to its excellent location just outside the pie capital of Melton Mowbray, this long-established and unique event in the annual audio calendar offers visitors the opportunity to listen to an incredibly wide variety of top quality, 'real life' audio systems playing an equally wide variety of music.

From classic to modern, from computer source to vinyl, from home made to high end, and from budget to no expense spared - almost every possible way to reproduce music can be heard here, using almost every make, past and present. 'Amateur' systems? Yes, but they are some of the very best you will ever hear, put together with no commercial restraints and often with no compromises.

What's more, unlike most commercial hi-fi shows, you are more than welcome to bring your own music... and hear it like you've never heard it before!

About the show

  • The show

    Hi-fi enthusiasts demonstrating their own systems to the public? Sounds boring? Anything but! It is primarily all about the music, but to many it is a great family day out. You can expect a massive variety of audio systems, all put together by people with vast knowledge and experience. Think of any name from the world of hi-fi and there is a good chance you will find it in one of the rooms.

  • The forum

    The HiFi Wigwam forum has been around for many years and is one of the most lively, humorous, controversial and irreverent forums on the Internet today. Its members have a seemingly infinite range of ages, occupations, backgrounds, other hobbies, and most of all - opinions.

    They may be different in many ways, but there is one thing everyone on the forum shares: a real passion for music, together with a desire to replay it to the highest possible standards. Some of the exhibitors build their equipment from scratch; some modify it extensively; a few do little more than just measure it; and many simply purchase and enjoy it... but it is all of a standard that is absolutely outstanding.

  • The venue

    Located just a few miles from the picturesque Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray, and with easy access, the Scalford Hall Hotel has been the show venue for more than a few years. This year, to avoid excessive queues and problems, there will be a comprehensive Park and Ride system operating from the town. Apart from disabled spaces, there is no visitor parking at the show.
