Warners Shows has confirmed that the Festival of British Railway Modelling, due to take place in February 2021, has been postponed until 2022.
Hosted at the Doncaster Exhibition Centre within the Doncaster Racecourse, the event will now take place across the weekend of 12-13 February, 2022.
Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, many of the shows of 2020 – including our own at Alexandra Palace and Peterborough – haven’t taken place. With restrictions continuing through to the end of the year, exhibitions in early 2021 are also looking unlikely.
As well as postponing February’s Festival of British Railway Modelling, the events team at Warners is also reviewing dates for the London Festival of Railway Modelling, which was due to be held at Alexandra Palance in March, 2021. We will update you as soon as a new date is confirmed.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors, exhibitors, layouts, societies and visitors who have supported our shows for a number of years. We hope to be able to open the doors to one of our exhibitions soon, when it is safe to do so.
