Sywell Aviation Museum Book & Model Sale 22nd May 2021 - 1000-1400hrs


Recommended Posts

Sywell Aviation Museum has been hit hard by the COVID-19 lockdown and as such we are hosting this one off event to help raise funds for the Museum as we rely on donations to survive.

- Military/Aviation Books/ Model Kits and more for sale by fair donation
-Think of it like a small church bazaar/table top sale!
- Paul Fitzmaurice from Modellingtools.co.uk will be attending for all your modelling bits and bobs!
- Please note that there will be NO ACCESS to the Museum that day
- Hand Sanitizer stations will be provided
- Please remember to keep social distance and only touch items you'd like to buy
- This event is held OUTSIDE and as such is weather dependent - if IT IS RAINING WE MAY HAVE TO CANCEL!
- The sale will be held in the Museum car park on tables outside the Museum entrance - parking is free. The Aviator Hotel garden and Pilots Mess SHOULD be open
- If you have items you'd like to donate please contact us in advance or bring them along - we'd really appreciate it!
- Owners of classic/military vehicles are welcome if you'd like to give your machines an airing (*sadly we can't provide tea and coffee etc)
Thereafter the Museum plans to reopen on 12th June 2021 and will then be open 1030-1630 each weekend and bank holiday until the end of September. We hope also to be open Tuesday/Wednesday afternoons between 1200-1600hrs

Please follow our Facebook page for further updates and the latest news! 

Any questions or queries, please email sywellaviationmuseum@gmail.com or call 07968061708

I traded at the Sywell show last year and it was a very enjoyable, relaxed event (the good weather helped a lot). Picking up some great bargains also helped. As stated above, it is all outdoors and if there happens to be a lot of rain on the day, it could get cancelled at the last minute (all fingers crossed). 

 

Hope to see you folks there.

Fingers crossed! Please all do keep an eye on the Sywell Aviation Facebook page for the latest !

 

as a further temptation all the books are for sale by donation so perfect time to stock up- we welcome any donation of military/aviation books and models to help keep us going as we don’t charge an entry fee and rely on donations to survive- Covid has not been good to us! 
 

hope to see y’all in May!

According to the museum's Facebook page, Steve Foster of Klassic Kits is now part of the mix. This is going to be a pretty good-sized event - let's pray for some decent weather. See everyone there!

He sure is!

 

as an aside both Modelling Tools and Models for Sale will let you collect any online orders at the sale to save you postage- leaving you spare cash to invest in some wonderful items from the Museum’s own book stall!
