Hi, In case anyone is local/in the area and are interested, we have a fairly large (one side of a small hall) Lego display as part of a larger model show in Alresford in Hampshire in the UK this Saturday. For those who are interested in coming along for a visit (or if you know of anyone else who would be), some info below from the organiser of the show: "Just a quick note to thank you all for agreeing to take part on the 14th June. We have over 20 layouts/displays this year with several new layouts and many significantly altered. I am also full with sales tables (80+) The show has been heavily advertised in national and local publications as well as on the internet (please get it on any additional sites you can, ta) hopefully we will have a good number turning up. Remember many families come so beware of little fingers, any help with letting the public operate the trains is always appreciated. There is a large TOMY layout this year so that should keep the little ones happy. Enter the School via Pound Hill (continuation from main street through Alresford from East or on right if entering from Winchester end) The School now has a one way system. Four Marks Scouts will be doing refreshments all day and bacon butties early on. Alresford Scouts will be doing a BBQ from 12-3pm, The Ice Cream lady is expected to be there all day and I have a licence so Real Ale until sold out. There will be live music as well and it's 'War on the Line' on the Mid Hants Railway. Save the Children will be doing the door rota all day and also the raffle for which Hornby have donated some excellent prizes. Timings: Show is open for early entry in sports hall from 9am main show starts 11am-5pm" Further details at http://www.alresford-toy-trains.org.uk/ Thanks, Harlquinth.
KIDZ CAR'S AND TRAIN'S EXHIBITION My name is Richard Banks and i am organising the very first model car and train exhibition aimed exclusively at children in the Hampshire area. The event will be designed to allow children to watch, interact and play (that's up to you!) with train tracks and car tracks and help raise money for a local charity (this year will be Little Sunbeams Preschool) I am sending this email to clubs, associations, toy shops, hobbyists and enthusiasts throughout Hampshire and beyond to garner interest and exhibitors for the car and train exhibition. I believe that this type of event which mixes scalextrix, model trains, plarail, brio, r/c cars, lego trains (and more obscure ones!) is a first for Hampshire and is a real chance for all clubs and associations to promote themselves, their services and products while creating an engaging and fun environment for children of all ages to play in. We are expecting 100-150 visitors on the day, all of whom will have the chance to visit your exhibition! The exhibition will be held in the Lockswood centre, Locks heath, Fareham on the 28th September between the hours of 10am and 5pm and there is NO charge for exhibitors. If you are interested, want to know more or are able to help spread the word to other exhibitors (or anything else!) i would like to hear from you. Please be assured that whatever you can exhibit at the event will be welcome and any fears that allay from the play aspect of this event are entirely at your discretion!
