THE Christmas Model Railway Show – Manchester 2021!


This year’s exhibition is scheduled to take place on Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th December at our new, larger venue in central Manchester – the Sugden Centre, M1 7HL.

Provisional planning is well under way and we expect to welcome approximately 30 layouts and a wider range of traders than was possible at our previous venue.  However, until the government announces that Step 4 of their roadmap out of lockdown has been reached, and certain other local conditions have been clarified, the Society cannot make a decision on the viability of staging what will be our 83rd public exhibition.

We can confirm that our entry prices will remain the same as they were in 2019: £8.50 in advance or £10 on the door, with children and carers free, and that most of the layouts on display will have been featured in the modelling press.  As always, the layouts will be in a wide variety of scales and will feature prototypes from several countries and a wide range of time periods.

Further information should be published in late July.  To receive this information direct to your mailbox, please subscribe below to join the approx 2000 people already on our mailing list.
