On this weeks BIG Metal Detecting radio and TV Show we were proud to have Mark Becher as our guest.
Mark is the owner of the Metal Detectives group. Organisers of Detectival and Spring Detectival. Mark and host – Dave Sadler, spoke at length about the history of Marks metal detecting career and his business ventures in the subject, as well as the philosophy behind the Detectival events.
During the show, Mark shocked Dave and the watching and listening audience a huge shock with the announcement of the first Summer Detectival taking place in North Wales in July 2020.
Mark went on to say the event will take place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th July in Nannerch near Mold in North Wales and will have the same look and feel as the other Detectival events.
Mark spoke about the local history around the site in North Wales and Dave was able to add to the information via his knowledge of living locally and his involvement in an archaeological excavation very near to the estate where Summer Detectival will take place.
A host of additional potential leisure facilities will also be within the estate, including trout fishing and Quad biking, as well as the event camping facilities.
