Be inspired, get creative!

 Railways, model and miniature, large and small…

 Dolls Houses & miniatures including Showman’s Caravans, shops, and other displays
"Hands-on" displays

Including, of course, trade support.

A veritable cornucopia stretching from wooden toys through Mecanno to fine scale plastic and miniature engineering. A true "wunderland" of models.

Fun for all the family - kids of all ages from 1-101 (or older for that matter!)

* More about Admission

We are predominantly showcasing models, model-making, miniature engineering etc. The people who do this give of their time to share their skills with everyone but not only do they obviously not pay for tables or space - we also have to pay for their travelling costs and in some cases even hotel costs. Consequently an admission charge has to be made if we are to cover the cost of venue hire, let alone have a surplus to benefit Demelza. But, by today's standards the charge is pretty low and you would be hard pressed to find better value for money - especially if you bring your children or grandchildren!
