With very great regret, the decision has been taken to cancel this year’s exhibition. This decision was not taken lightly and all possible avenues were explored (including postponing the exhibition by four months) to offer a safe environment for our visitors, exhibitors, traders and members, whilst still ensuring that the considerable expense of staging the show was covered.
As the only model railway society to stage an exhibition in the centre of a major UK city, we are very dependent on public transport, with over 70% of our visitors arriving by train, tram and bus. At present, public confidence in using these modes of transport is greatly reduced. This, together with the continuing uncertainty about how covid infection rates will change during the autumn means that the Society cannot guarantee that their visitor income will be enough to cover the large cost of staging the exhibition.
However, despite this disappointment, plans are already in place for our next four exhibitions, leading to our centenary exhibition in 2025.
The 83rd public exhibition of the Manchester Model Railway Society will now take place over the weekend of December 10th/11th 2022 at our new, spacious venue in central Manchester – the Sugden Centre, M1 7HL.

0The Bexleyheath Model Railway Show which ran in Dec and those who attended know had a great footfall has had to be moved 2 miles up the road and we have renamed it Woolwich Model Railway Show. Reason for move was the massive free parking for exhibitors and visitors now cost £14 per day per car. However we have found an amazing historical building used as a radar post in WW2 which has a licenced bar and full wheelchair access over a number of rooms, so that internal footfall can be done with ease.

We are outside the new ULEZ congestion zone and have great transport links.
