To add to the list of cancelled shows.

I have to report that Bentley Model Railway Group have postponed Trainwest, planned for 18/19 April, until 17/18 Oct 2020.

Regards

Neal.

Postponed and already have a re-scheduled date. Well done Neil and the rest of BMRG. See you there  :thumbsup:

York - Easter
Derby 9/10 May

Both cancelled and as I understand it, no intention to reschedule this year, and to return on the usual dates in 2021...

Steve (James St) as also been informed that Swansea and Soar Valley /Loughborough are also cancelled.

He also noted that Workington is cancelled.

Our next booking for JS is Peterborough, which according to its website, hasn't been updated for this year yet.

Realistic to expect few if any shows to go ahead this year unless something radical happens, it would be simply impossible to implement, never mind enforce social distancing at any venue.

Not model railways but I have just heard that North Norfolk Railway's 1940s weekend 19 & 20 Sept has also just been cancelled albeit nearly 4 months away, and much of that (apart from trains and some catering) is outside...

Wigan has now gone too, so no chance of us finally meeting the mighty Newportnobby this year!

I don't blame you there's too much at risk now what with Covid-19 now on the list, before at model railway exhibitions it was just little things like hepatitis A to be cautious of! ;)

Surely TINGS won't be on this year so no worries about PPE!

Plus the all pervading smell of wee and cabbage and risk of bodily harm from rucksacks etc!

I guess many would be happier to put up with those little foibles now...

I'm all for sampling the local cuisine, but that sounds a spoonful too far :goggleeyes:

For ourselves in Hull, the current position is that a decision will be made by the end of August based on how the situation develops between now & then plus the latest national & local public heath advice (bearing in mind, that Hull currently has second lowest infection rate of the 20 biggest conurbations in the UK, it may be a scaled-down localised event can go ahead but discouraging long distance exhibitors or visitors)

Wakefield is indeed cancelled but, primarily due to non-availability of the venue due to fire damage earlier this year, and may not have gone ahead regardless of the pandemic...

I have updated my handy flow chart to help with this:

- Is the exhibition before October:

- If yes: it will be cancelled
- If no: it will probably be cancelled
