The Elstree Model Show 2020 (Getting it in early)

Recommended Posts

Hello, folks. 

 

We are now well into planning our second model-show in Elstree, Hertfordshire. We are inviting as many model-clubs and traders as we can get into the venue, so why not give it a go? It will be a relaxed and friendly show, using the same venue. 

 

Date:          Sunday 14th June 2020. 

 

Location:    The Allum Hall and Manor House (please see note below, re: using Satnav)

                   2 Allum Lane (opposite ASDA petrol-station)

                   Elstree

                   Borehamwood

                   Hertfordshire

                   WD6 3PJ

 

                                           PLEASE NOTE: There is a very minor issue if you find the show-venue using SATNAV.

 

When very close to the venue, your device may direct you to a quiet, residential road called Boreham Holt. PLEASE IGNORE THIS SATNAV INSTRUCTION. This road actually snakes around the back of the venue and this caused some obvious confusion in 2019. 

 

When you know you are very close to the venue, continue down the main road (Allum Lane) until you come to the small roundabout with the ASDA petrol-station on your right. At this small roundabout, turn immediate left into the car-park entrance of the Allum Hall venue. This advice is made in the assumption that you will be travelling in from areas north of Borehamwood. 

 

We will by adding a sign at the turning to get in to Boreham Holt road, which will (hopefully) resolve the problem. 

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Times:         10:00 - 16:00 (Traders and Clubs can set up from 07:15 am on the day). 

 

Admission charges:     TO BE CONFIRMED (very likely, much the same as the 2019 Show). 

 

Trader List:    Affinity Models, Steve Foster (Klassic Kits), Alan Wilson (Icelandic Fine Art), etc. (MORE TRADERS TO BE CONFIRMED, CLOSER TO THE DATE). 

 

Hannants (London Branch) will again be attending in 2020.

If you order anything from the main Hannants warehouse and pick it up from the show, an automatic 10% discount from the standard, list-price will be applied (NB: This does not apply to second-hand or special offer items. Only applicable to brand new items). Please order a minimum of 12 days before the show and specify "Colindale / Elstree Show" as the delivery-address. Also, please note that Hannants will probably only bring a small selection of new kits to the 2020 show (it is essentially for the picking up of pre-orders).  They will, however, bring a number of extremely useful accessories (paints, glues, weathering and finishing products, etc). 

 

Clubs attending  London IPMS, Barnet IPMS, Harrow IPMS, The What If? SIG, Hornchurch IPMS, Brampton IPMS, Watford Model Club, Airfix SIG, etc. (ALL OTHER CLUBS TO BE CONFIRMED, CLOSER TO THE DATE). 

 

There is a kitchen on-site, which will be serving bacon-rolls, sandwiches and hot/cold drinks all day, at very reasonable prices. 

 

There are approximately 95 parking-spaces at the venue and there is limited parking in nearby residential roads. The venue has step-free access. 

 

Due to the venue's size, it is unlikely that we will be running a model-competition.

 

If required for travel, the show is a two-minute walk from Elstree & Borehamwood station (on the Kings Cross to Bedford Thameslink Line).  

 

We hope to see everyone there!

Good luck with it. I'll try to turn up if I'm in the UK.  I can still remember the (cough) Elstree Air Show, with the Red Arrows....

IPMS Farnborough will be very welcome at Elstree (as will all the attending Clubs, of course). We are now fully booked with 17 traders and 16 clubs on the books. It could get busy in there...!

 

Bump 14/5/19.
