The Erith Model Railway Society’s annual January show, one of South East England’s largest shows (and Kent’s largest by stand numbers), will return to The Longfield Academy for our 5th show there. The show will encompass at least 30 layouts, extensive trade and society support, demonstrators (including the club’s Foxley Service Centre - Loco Diagnostics & Cleaning Service), static exhibits and charity raffle, making over 100 stands in total.
NB: Charity Raffle – In aid of the Association of Bexley Charities ‘78.
The venue can be reached by Longfield railway station (5-10 minute walk away), Arriva bus services 423 (from Dartford and Bluewater), 433 (from Bluewater, Sunday only) and 489 (from Gravesend), and Go-Coach bus services 474 and 475 (both from Bluewater). The buses stop at Longfield St. Marys Way, Longfield Brickfields Farm and/or Longfield Railway Station. All stops are 5-10 minute walk from the venue. Some services may stop at Longfield Academy itself. Ask the driver when you board if in doubt. There are no Sunday services for the 423, 474 and 475 routes.
There is a sizeable free on-site car park, full disabled access (including toilets), a large refreshment area (300+ seats) and an extensive range of hot and cold food and drinks at reasonable prices. There is some off-site parking available at a day nursery in Brickfield Farm just up the road from the venue (5 minute walk away), should we run out (and we usually do) of on-site parking.
