The South’s Largest Model Engineering & Modelling Exhibition returns in January from the 18th – 20th. This exhibition is regarded as one of the leading model shows in the UK and attracts over 14,000 visitors annually.

Come along and see the full spectrum of modelling from traditional model engineering, steam locomotives and traction engines through to the more modern gadgets including trucks, boats, aeroplanes, helicopters and robots.

Visitors can travel between the show’s different zones, trying the activities and watching fascinating and technical demonstrations. Over 50 clubs and societies will be present displaying their members work and competing to win the prestigious Society Shield. In total, nearly 2,000 models will be on display.

Organisers expect to welcome the return of the British Model Flying Association, Tamiya Trucking Group, Brickish, The Imagineering Foundation and the Polly Owners Group who provide passenger rides behind the 5” gauge steam locomotives within the Great Hall.

All of the leading suppliers will also be present showcasing new products and special promotions and giving hobbyists an excellent opportunity to see and compare products under one roof. You will be able to purchase virtually anything you need for your next model or project or to get you started in a hobby.

If you are an active model engineer this is a key event in the calendar to meet other hobbyists and see the leading suppliers. This is a great day out for all the family, one the children will love with all the working models. If you are interested in modelling yourself or want to rekindle your childhood memories, you will find something amongst the many diverse types of modelling on display to admire. If you are not already a modeller hopefully the exhibition will fire your imagination to build something yourself and enjoy one of these satisfying hobbies.
