0Sadly we have had to cancel the 2021 Fareham RailEx - but not for the obvious reasons...
There is building work going on at Fareham Leisure Centre to provide a new entrance into the centre which effectively writes off sensible access to the lower level where the bulk of the exhibition takes place.
We are expecting to be back in 2022 subject to the venue operators being willing to have us back in their glitzy new building and announcements will be made in the usual places once the dust settles. In the meantime we may organise a series of "pop-up" events around Fareham town centre and the outlying shopping areas and community halls. Details will be posted here and on UKMODELSHOPS as we arrange them.

0Our next Open Work Day will be held at the Milland Memorial Village Hall on Sunday 10th October - between 10:00 and 16:00.
These events are held to provide members the chance to carry out more involved work on the layouts, that our Friday evenings do not allow us to do in the time available. Visitors are free to pay us a visit to see what projects are underway. Tea and coffee is always available!
Layouts being worked on will be 'Inspired by Friedrichstrasse' and 'Lavender Hill'.
