THE Christmas Model Railway Show – Manchester 2020!


This year’s exhibition is scheduled to take place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December at the Barnes Wallis building, Manchester M1 7JA

Nineteen layouts and our usual range of traders have been invited and all arrangements are in place.

Because of the uncertainty caused the present Covid-19 pandemic, the final decision on whether or not to proceed with the exhibition will be taken on September 8th.

Advance tickets will be available on-line and from selected model shops from October 1st, priced £8.50 for adults.  Children are admitted free, as are carers of disabled visitors.  Advance ticket sales will end at 21:45 on Thursday 10th December (ie 36 hours before the doors open.)

Tickets will be available on the door priced at £10 per adult.  Note that we will only be able to accept cash on the door, not card payments.
