Southern Expo 2020 - March 28th & 29th

Recommended Posts

Dear all

 

I'm pleased to announce the dates for the Southern Expo model show for 2020

 

Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March 2020

 

Sadly this will be our last show at Hornchurch as the centre we host in is being replaced with a new one which has a much smaller hall (half the size), we’ve looked for other suitable venues and at the moment haven’t been able to find anything, so we will be drawing the show to a close for the foreseeable future.

 

The show will be held at the Hornchurch Sports Centre, Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, Essex, RM11 1JU

 

10am to 5pm Saturday & 10am to 4pm Sunday

 

Entry: Adults £3.00, Children £1 & Senior Citizens  £2

 

Open Competition (Sunday only) – the Senior competition is being sponsored by Models For Sale (http://www.modelsforsale.com)

 

All proceeds will be donated to St Francis Hospice.  The 2019 show raised a total of £3,000.

Sad to hear that this could be the last Southern Expo for a while. It's one of the oldest established model shows on the calendar. Hopefully, it will re-emerge in some form eventually.

Yes indeed. One of my favourite shows and I think our club has done every one since it started right back to the few years at Mitcham. Be sad to see it go.......😢

Very sad.  Haven't actually been for a few years now but for me it was always the Other Big Show, the counterbalance at the other end of the year to the Nats, and well worth attending.  Thanks to the organisers past and present for many happy hours spent.

I only ever went to it twice - once in 1990 and again this year. The only reason I didn't go too often is because out of deference to a harmonious home life I always rationed my model show visits to about four a year. Sadly, as some of you might know, my wife passed away earlier in the year and as part of my coping technique I decided to try to get to more model shows. Southern Expo was my first for 2019 and I really enjoyed it.

That is a shame. I always enjoy going each year and it is deservedly popular. It's the only show I attend.

As I'm 'local' to the area I'll keep an eye out for any venues that might be worth mentioning to you.
