I have had confirmation from Ian Crawford today that we have space at the Lincoln and Newark Model Expo 2007 – AKA “The Southwell Show”

We have, like other branches, been allocated 2x6' tables. There may be more depending on the turnout on the day.

The Lincoln and Newark Model Expo 2007 will take place on its original date – 14th October – at the Newark Pavilion of the Newark Showground, which lies just off the A46 north of Newark.

The showground is a large site with many facilities, and this year we are sharing the facility with an ‘Autojumble’ event. Access to the show is via the Red Gate only. If you try to enter via any of the other gates, you are likely to be charged admission to the Autojumble. Admission to Lincoln and Newark Model Expo 2007 is, as usual, free.

The roads leading to the site are likely to be very busy, and visitors are advised to avoid the periods 7.30 am to 8.30 am and 11.00 am to 12.00 am, when, we are advised, congestion is likely to be at its most acute.

Details of the venue may be found at the Showground’s own website -
Newark showground

For your info:
If you type the postcode NG242NY into Google maps, it'll take you straight there.

Count me in.

What time do we need to be there to help setup? This one is closer for me than Doncaster - only a three hour drive :-)

Looking at that map of the show ground (and from what I remember when we went next door to Newark Air Museum) the A17 is the road that runs from the north to the south east (passed the green gate)

Seeing as how Ive just had a 7 week tour pulled out from under my feet its looking likely that I'll be going nowhere during October,,so I may well be able to get along to this one now.
