Sat 6th - Broadland Model Railway Club -  Aylsham Model Railway Exhibition
Jubilee Centre, Norwich Road, Aylsham, Norfolk

This is the 11th consecutive Annual Model Railway Exhibition the Broadland Model railway Club has held in Aylsham. Our admission prices have been held at the same level for the past six years in spite of rising costs because we believe in attracting and encouraging members of the public to enjoy our hobby.

I'll put up more details when they become available

Further to the above, the Norwich Railway Society Show which used to be held in Norwich, Ipswich road, in January, has moved to Poringland on 10th March. Details to follow when I get them.

Broadland Model Railway Club open day in Stalham town Hall will be held in August, details also to follow.

There may also be a show again in Neatishead Victory hall, but I have no details at present.

Just a bump for the first Show on the list, for the Multi-scale Narrow Gauge Railway Modelling Group which is planned to be at Beccles on Saturday still appears to be on.

 The following week is the NRS show which used to be in Norwich but not is as below, Broadland MRC will have a layout at the show.
