East Anglian Model Railway Exhibition 2019
New location and new dates, click here for more information

Here is a bit more information about what to expect at our new venue in Kettering:

Entry is via the entrance near the Lighthouse Theatre  and this leads into an area where ticket desks will be set up awaiting your arrival.

Visitors will be able to buy their tickets and go straight through to the foyer and Lakeside seating area. Toilets will also be accessible.

There will be a buffet station in the foyer serving bacon rolls etc.. Society stands are in the foyer and coffee and tea can be purchased from the bar in the Lakeside seating area where you can sit back and read your show guide.

At 09.45am advanced ticket holders will be allowed into the exhibition area. The show then opens to all other visitors at 10.00am. (Advance ticket holders will have different colour tickets so it will be clear who gets in first.) 

The same buffet station in the foyer will be where you can grab a bite of lunch and the Lakeside seating area is open all day with a bar during licensed hours.

 'Kids Zone' is right next door. There is plenty to do in the area so why not plan a family weekend
