    We have two main halls, one for layouts, one for the trade. A side hall usually contains the test track, bring and buy and society stands. There will be a seating area next to the real ale bar located in a corner of the layout hall. Make sure you take in all the attractions, some have failed to do so in the past. ALSRM members get in free, you can join or renew your subscription on the day.Approved society members (G0G, G1MRA, Gauge 3 Soc. etc) get a discount on entry.

    The refreshment and bar areas in the Leisure Centre have been newly refurbished. Breakfast is available from 8.00 am.
