The venue is situated only a couple of hundred yards from Stevenage's main shopping area and offers a town centre location with the benefits of good transport links and car parking.
For those coming by public transport the railway station is literally just over the road and is joined to the venue and town centre by a pedestrian bridge. Services are mainly operated by Great Northern, lying on the route from London King's Cross to Peterborough & Cambridge. The station is also served by trains between London and Letchworth via Hertford North. The bus station is also close, less than a minutes walk away.
For those travelling by car the venue is on the dual carriageway A602 which is easily accessed by two junctions on the A1(M), one from the north and one from the south, with an estimated 5 minute travelling time from the motorway. Several large car parks are adjacent to the Arts & Leisure Centre. Please note parking in the Leisure Park car park is reserved for Leisure Park customers as opposed to Leisure Centre customers. Parking there and visiting the exhibition may result in visitors incurring a parking charge of £100.

0This workshop covers many aspects of using an airbrush for weathering model railways, from choosing appropriate equipment to applying the correct materials with relevant techniques. If you don’t already have an airbrush, we can loan you an Iwata (with compressor and spray booth) to use while you’re with us. The workshop provides a useful opportunity to try airbrushing before making a purchase.
09 February 2020 09:30 Until 16:00
0This workshop concentrates on hand-finishing techniques that can be employed to complement airbrush work or to use as stand-alone weathering treatments. It is an opportunity to try out and compare several tools and materials, all supplied for your use, although you can bring your own if you have already chosen some.
