We didn't hold the usual Calne Show in January 2020 due to building works at the leisure centre. Instead we held a much smaller event at the nearby Beversbrook Sports Facility. We had expected to return to the leisure centre in January 2021 but something seems to have gone wrong!
Trainwest was last held during April 2019 and has been cancelled for 2020 and 2021. It will return (we hope) in April 2022.
We had long been pondering moving the Calne Show to the autumn in order to give us equal intervals after the preceding Trainwest and before the following Trainwest.
So from adversity comes opportunity. We can't hold a Calne Show (or any other show) in January 2021. By early 2022 we will be busy preparing for the return of Trainwest after a gap of three years. But it does look as though a sufficient degree of normality will have returned in order to hold a Calne Show in October.
We therefore intend to hold the next Calne Model Rail Show at its usual venue over the weekend of 23 & 24 October 2021.
I do hope that we will remember how to run a show by then. More significantly I hope that people will still want to visit.
Thanks for the offers of layouts. The show is now full.
