Re: 37th Annual Festival of Model Railways & Hobbies. 16th & 17th November 2019

It is with great regret that I have to inform you that due to circumstances beyond our control the exhibition planned for the weekend of 16th and 17th November has unfortunately had to be cancelled.

We are all of course bitterly disappointed by this sudden and unexpected development. Our annual exhibition, generally regarded as the finest in Essex, has been running now for some thirty-seven years, and for it to have to be cancelled has hit us very hard. We have written to all exhibitors and emailed where we have email addresses, to advise you of the situation just as soon as we were certain that the event could not be staged at another venue. But we have explored all of our options there really is nothing we can do other than accept that this year’s exhibition is off

However, we are confirmed to be back next year on the 14th and 15th November as normal.
