Survey winners

The winners of our exit survey competition from the 2017 exhibition are Graham Jackson and Andrew Longstaff. Each will receive a pair of tickets and a £5 food voucher for next year’s show.

Exhibition details

The 56th Annual Exhibition will be held on November 17th-19th 2017, featuring 21 layouts in scales from 2mm to 7mm.


There is a public car park opposite the venue, and overflow parking is available at the Wakefield College site nearby.

Disabled access

Limited disabled parking is available at the sports centre and public car park opposite. If spaces are not available, please make a member of the team aware and we can arrange a drop-off close to the entrance.

If you would prefer to come at a time when it is quieter, Saturday and Sunday afternoons are usually less busy than the mornings or Friday night. However, all guests are very welcome to attend at any time.

There are disabled toilet facilities at the centre, and a lift to the catering area upstairs.

There is no entrance charge of the carer of a disabled person.
