Exhibition of Meccano Ltd Construction Sets, Hornby Model Railways, Dinky Toys & Bayko building sets

Saturday, August 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Frank Hornby took out his first Patent for a construction set in 1901. This became the world-famous ‘Meccano’ range soon afterwards to which was added Hornby trains, Dinky die-cast vehicles, Bayko and Dinky Builder construction sets.
This exhibition replaces that in February when Storm ‘Eunice’ obliged Council to close all public buildings on exhibition day with one day’s notice.

The exhibition will include superb Meccano models, one of which is Nationally recognised, working Hornby train layouts in ‘0’Gauge Electric, ‘O’ Gauge Clockwork and ‘Dublo’ (00 Gauge), Bayko architectural models and sets plus the national favourite Dinky Toy scale vehicles, aircraft, farming and ship diecast models. As an additional special exhibit, 25 superb ‘0’ Gauge scale models of LSWR steam locomotives will be on view. These are very rarely seen. Expert exhibitors will be on hand to offer information, advice and valuations.

Any profits will be divided between our current charities and causes, including The Jessie May Trust, The Nicola Corry Support Foundation and the Ebenezer Clinic (our international charity).

Tickets: Adults £5 | Children (3-18 years) £3 | Under 3 years Free
