Back by popular demand, the third instalment of our widely-acclaimed virtual exhibition is to take place this spring.
Following the success of our second #BigWORshow event in November, which drew more visitors to our website than at any model railway show in the UK – and with such fantastic feedback, we’re excited to announce that our next show will take place across the weekend of March 13-14, 2021.
Like before, the third #BigWORshow will feature a compelling selection of fantastic layouts created by talented modellers. The exhibits will feature N, OO, EM, P4, O, and G scales, with something for all tastes!
Popular features that made the previous show a success will remain, including our live feed, which will be populated with new content at least every 10 minutes!
And that’s not all. There’ll be competitions galore across the two days, practical demonstrations from a variety of talented modellers, plus interviews with some of the biggest names in the hobby.
We’re really excited to welcome everyone to our official opening on Saturday, March 13 at 09:30 GMT for two days of fantastic model railway entertainment and exciting challenges – don't forget to tell your friends. Don't miss it – we'll see you there, virtually, of course!
