The Big Model and Hobby Show 2019
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

THE 1st BIG Model and Hobby show took place on Saturday, 10 August, at the Southport Theatre, Convention Centre. The horrid weather that has been cancelling events all over the UK, did not affect the show, which catered for all ages. The event had virtual model aircraft flying, Lego building workshops, talks about local railway history, plus lots of other interesting things to see and do. Highlights also included a massive G Scale display along with 0 and 00 scales and N gauge displays, model boats displays, Lego and Meccano displays. These are some of the photographs we took at the event.

Well done to Peter Wood and his team from GIMRA North West for putting on this fantastic event, and we look forward to seeing it return in 2020, if all goes to plan. For all the latest news about the 2020 Big Model and Hobby show, keep an eye on the events Facebook Page.

If you missed this show, but still want to see a large display this year, make note of the Southport Model Railway Society's Festive Show, that will feature 10 layouts, including:- 'Monsal Dale,' at All Saints Parish Hall, on Park Road, Southport (PR99JB) on Saturday, 23 November 2019; for more information see:- SouthportModelRailway.Org.UK.

The next show will be on the 8 August 2020 at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre.
